Good morning, I'm so sorry this post is a bit late. I got in late yesterday from a fun day and evening with friends at CHA. Wow the new product coming to us this years is amazing,  New embossing and cutting folders from PC, Tim Holtz new line of more embossing folders, new paper lines... etc.. its  a bit overwhelming. ... so without further delay.. on to our winner and challenge of the week .

Last weeks random entry chosen is Ursul Uphof.  Please send me an email to nilda@thecuttlebugspot.com to claim your prize.  Lovely card, love the colors and embossed candles with the glitter flames.

****************************************************

This week's challenge is to use the colors Silver and Black. I think wedding and black tie affairs with these colors, but as you can see by the projects our DT came up with, you can use these colors for so many other occasions.  We cant wait to see what you come up with.

This week's prize is a gift certificate to Custom Crops for $20.00. Lots of new product coming to their store. A little spending money will come in handy :)

I would like to thank all of you who participate here at the CuttlebugSpot in our challenges. I know you all lead busy lives and sometimes you just visit and leave a wonderful comment. We appreciate all of you and therefore changing the rules for our weekly prize.  We are now going to pick a random comment for a weekly winner. You don't have to create anything, just leave us a comment as your entry to win. We hope that you still participate in our challenges and please share your creations with us. We love to see your take on the challenge but if you don't have time, just leave a comment to be entered.  Good luck.
