To be eligible for  Prizes or Top 3 you MUST BE A FOLLOWER of this Challenge blog. 

Your creation can be any type of craft, so long as some of it's handmade.

 Handmade Definition:  made by hand, rather than by machine. 

 Our Definition: all can be made by hand or some by hand with some by machine. It can't be all completely Digital, as some of it has to be handmade.

All creations must be new and posted to your blog after the start of a challenge.
 (Backlinking is when you enter a  creation which has already been posted previously on your blog). 
  In other words, if the date on your blog post shows your entry is older than our challenge announcement date, we cannot accept it and it will be deleted and will not be counted.

Please link your challenge entry using your post link of your creation & NOT your entire blog link, and link back to US  {Lil Patch of Crafty Friends} blog in your post.  
Please turn off Word Verification as this will make it a lot easier for Design Team to comment, much appreciated.

You may enter up to 3 times in any given challenge.

Your creation can now be linked in as many additional challenges as you wish, you can now pile on the other challenges to your heart's content.....

  1. Hi...
    I have a question? Are digital creations allowed?

    1. Hi Wendy,
      IN the rules it says ... Your creation can be any type of craft, so long as some of it's handmade......
      The only way digital creations can be accepted is if some of it's handmade for example say your whole picture is digital BUT you print it out then add it to some cardstock, with some bling perhaps, this is accepted, as you have added something that you have put together using materials that the hand touches, not just on machine/pc. So the Handmade definition : made by hand, rather than by machine.
      So with Lil Patch adding "some of it has to be handmade" means some made by hand, not all machine/pc
      I hope this makes sense. I appreciate you asking.
      Thanks Denise

  2. I am SOOOO glad you changed the limit of other challenges we can play along with. I enjoy seeing how many challenges I can make my projects meet. The entry limit of three is totally fair. For me a lot of time the challenges that limit the number of other challenges I can play with are the last ones I focus on.
    I am adding you to my challenge blog list.
    Thanks so much for sharing your talents and time with us.
    Crafty hugs,

  3. Does 'anything' include sewing?

    1. Hi, Yes I'm very happy to include any form of handicraft, have a great day
