*T* Thirsty Thursday

Bit of late night Thirsty Thursday from us this week and with a winter chill in the air and even chillier weather forecast for the weekend why not rise to the letter T challenge(s) this week in the warmth of your own home! You know how to play along - below we have listed some prompts for you and we challenge you to use to kickstart your next papercrafting project. Incorporate one or more in a layout or card and share your creativity using the link at the end of this blog post for a chance to win a prize in our monthly draw.

T is for TRIMS - The perfect way to add a finishing touch to a special project and the subject of our giveaway earlier today too. This week we challenge you to use trims on your projects. Take a peak at the variety we have in store here.

T is for TURQUOISE - Cool it down with browns and greys for a wintery feel or spice it up with warm oranges, yellows and reds for a summery page. How will you feature the colour turquoise on your project this week? Mel created this striking page using inks and mists in turquoise as shared in the March 2011 gallery.

T is for TICKETS AND TAGS - Great for adding dates to projects, or for hidden journalling or simply added as efemera tickets and tags appear frequently on pages. This week we challenge you to incorporate a tag or ticket or both on your next project. 7Gypsies produce a vast array of 97% complete tags for use on layouts - take a look at some of them in our store here.

T is for TIME - Bo Bunny had a great range of papers in their 2011 collections featuring clocks and other time related items. The April 2011 DT gallery showcases a number of projects featuring clocks or with time related titles including this one by Karen Moss. Why not use time, or clocks or a reference to the passing of time on a project this week.

T is for TIM HOLTZ - The most well known male in scrapbooking and the name behind many a crafting produc Mr Tim Holtz never fails to inspire with his creations. From Grungepaper to configuration boxes, stickers to adornments, Distress inks to masks; there are any number of items you can include on your project this week to meet this particular T challenge.
