Challenge 24 - Uncoloured Digi Card's x

Hiya guys, thanks for visiting :-D Hope you’ve all had a lovely month xx

I have some sad news to share I'm afraid, which is that this will be our last challenge. It’s with a heavy heart that I’m saying goodbye but there just aren't enough hours in the day for me at the moment – work and life are becoming increasingly busy.

I will miss working with our lovely design team, seeing your beautiful cards, and chatting to you online. I've met some really amazing people over the last couple of years and I am sad to be leaving it all behind. The digi's will stay online on my Etsy store, so our little Flat Friends aren't disappearing completely, and I will continue to sponsor various other challenge sites in the future.

I want to give a shout out to the lovely ladies on our DT – past and present – without their amazing support and beautiful work this challenge site simply wouldn’t have been possible.

I also want to say a massive thank you to all of our gorgeous followers and everyone who has joined us for the challenges over the past couple of years – it’s been an absolute pleasure seeing all of your work xx

We had some really stunning entries last month (as always) - I’m so glad the random number generator does the choosing for us! Our winners this month are: 


Katie Tate

Donna Jones

 Rachael E

 Pauline



Congratulations guys xx You can grab your winners badge from the sidebar and email me with your choice of 4 digi's to flatfriendsboutique@gmail.com - I'll get them over to you straight away. 

For this challenge the theme is Uncoloured Digi’s. I just love uncoloured image cards and I thought that this could be a nice one as it frees up some time and gives our faithful marker pens a bit of a rest :-) 



We've got a few inspiration cards for you below so you get the idea - what a lucky lady I am to have been working with such lovely and talented ladies - going to miss that the most xxx

I hope you'll still choose to play along this month - it's always a delight to see your gorgeous entries. I’ll be back on the 1st of next month to announce our last set of winners. 

Lots of love to you all, Em xxx






Hello, Angela here!  No coloring...an interesting twist!  I decided that I would go monochromatic and play up the texture; I've used textured vellum, dry embossing, grosgrain ribbon, and just a touch of glitter.  The image is called "Summer Kisses"; along with the end of the summer comes the end of our challenges.  I want to thank Em for being such a doll to work with and having me on her team...it has been a pleasure!  I hope you will all play along with our final challenge.




Kathy here with my uncolored card. Hmm, a tough challenge for me, lol, I was so tempted to add just a little color to Punch Love, but I refrained and am pleased with the look. This one is for Em! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for having me on the DT, it has been wonderful. I'm grateful for all of the gorgeous images you've shared with us, your kind words and most of all your friendship! XOXO

Hope you will all play along this month, it really is a quick make, when you aren't coloring the image. And you have all month to play along!



Hiya guys, Em here :-) I was really excited about this challenge theme. You've probably noticed over the past couple of years that I love CAS designs and kraft card so I thought I would combine two of my favourite things for this last challenge entry. So here we have it - a very simple, plain, kraft card :-D I decided to use the 'Star Catcher' digi stamp as I thought it would work nicely with the cute moon and stars quote I saw the other day by Les Brown :-) 




Remember that you don't need to use a Flat Friends digi to enter our challenges anymore but there is an extra prize on offer if you do :-) Also, each challenge can only be entered once so unfortunately multiple entries will not be entered into the draw xx

P.S. I’m off away to Venice for a week this month so there will be a period (from the 6th to the 13th of September) where I’m not able to comment on entries but I’ll catch up when I get back to the UK xx
