Newsflash!!........ Newsflash!!......... Newsflash!!
Amaco has a new challenge on their website. If you've been playing with Friendly Plastic then why don't you give it a go.

They are inviting all crafters to participate in the challenge with cash prizes being awarded to the winner of each category. They will also make a donations to the winners' favourite charities. But even if you're not one of the winners, you'll still receive Friendly Plastic sticks to replenish your supply and as a bonus, your entry will be displayed in an on-line gallery on the Amaco website - so if you'd like to see your work published, then this might be just the challenge for you!

There are several categories including one to honour "Bottles of Hope" (read about the origins of Bottles of Hope here), the "Butterfly Project" plus two jewellery making categories. For more information, check out the details on their website.
