Nutty Nutshells Wednesday!

We have some exciting news here on the Nutshells Blog! We are starting our very own challenges!! They are called Nutty Nutshells Wednesday's and will be held twice a month. We are so excited to bring our challenges to you and we hope that you will play along with us.
To kick off our challenges, we are supplying you with a free digi image to use for your challenge entry. How awesome is that? She is the adorable Pecan Nut Halloween Witch. She is the cutest thing ever don't you think?? Of course the theme for the challenge is Halloween.

You can right click on her and save her to your computer and use her for your challenge entry. Our tremendously talented Design Team have created some wonderful cards and projects for you to see. Poppet has unfortunately had to step down from our DT due to personal reasons.





To kick off our challenges, Katie and Colette have offered a wonderful prize package for a lucky winner. Check it out:

Selection of Flowers, Prima Crystals and Pearls, Assorted Charms and the winners choice of any 4 Nutshells character stamps.

You may be asking, so how can I win this fabby prize? All you have to do is make a Halloween card or project using the lovely Pecan Nut Witch and leave a comment on this blogpost with a link to your actual project, not your blog, your actual project. This makes it easier for us to find your awesome creations. If you post to an online gallery please use the keyword: NNW1.
Before the next challenge on Oct. 20 I will draw a winner and announce it on this blog at the time of the challenge. You have two weeks to complete your card and leave your comment, good luck!! Be sure to visit the DT blogs and leave them some love! We can't wait to see your creations, so come play!! Be sure to spread the word!

Hugs, Cathy
