Wk 28 Graph'It Marker Challenge....Chocolate Heaven/tones of brown

Hi everyone! Happy New Year!!!

We hope you had a lovely Christmas and are ready and raring to go  with a brand new Challenge!

We have some exciting news this week - we are delighted to welcome Susan Imeson to the Graph'It Design Team...Susan makes the most gorgeous cards and we're so thrilled she's joined us to play!

Nikky will also be back on Create and Craft TV this Tuesday 7th Jan at 1pm with another Graph'It TV show so we hope you can either join her live on Sky 671, Freeview 36 or watch online here 

if you can't get the channel on your TV - and ssssshhhhh!!!!.... if you bought Nikky's last Colour Set No 1 which she handpicked as a starter set there might be a new one perfect for you to co-ordinate with that...we are really trying to help you build your collection in an easy way without duplicating colours and making it's kinda a no-brainer!
