Week Nine - Lilac and Blue...

Welcome to you all and hope you are all having a lovely weekend!

Thanks to everyone who took part in last week's challenge - did you think it was difficult not using your Design Papers? Well if you did you didn't show it - what a fantastic array of cards you made and with so many wonderful techniques!

STOP PRESS! It's time for candy!! As I mentioned last week, I've been planning a candy giveaway to celebrate us getting past 10,000 hits on this challenge and also because I have just celebrated my birthday. I am also posting this candy on my blog and I'm asking people who visit to enter this week's challenge in order to be put into the draw to win the candy. May I ask that you don't combine this challenge with any other just for this week, if you would like to be in with a chance of winning. Of course, if you don't fancy the candy that's absolutely fine - go ahead and combine as always. Talking of the candy, have you spotted those gorgeous Miss Anyas?!

This week's challenge has been created by the wonderful Sharon. I'm sure many of you will have seen Sharon's stunning creations already, but if you haven't yet visited you're in for a real treat. Sharon isn't afraid to tackle difficult projects and puts her heart and soul into whatever she does. She is a design team member of a number of challenge blogs which, in itself, is testament to her talent. She is also very willing to help out if you have a query or question and is a brilliant blogger!

Here is your colour combination then:

For this week's extra option we would like you to use ribbons and swirls on your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

We are delighted to introduce this week's guest designer Pat, it is a real pleasure to have her joining us for this week's challenge.


Here are the Design Team cards for this week....













Thanks for taking the time to visit our challenge and remember, if you do take part, you will be automatically entered into the draw to become guest designer for a week!

Our Guest Designer for week ten will be Nicky, thanks for agreeing to play along with us!

All being well Mr linky will appear at the bottom of this post so that you will find linking your card so much easier! Please enter your actual card post into the URL box if possible, many thanks! xx

Hi -- I'm Mr Linky #46 - Christine. I hope you haven't looked at my card yet. I accidently combined it with another challenge but I have now removed it from the other challenge. I hope this means I will still be eligible for this challenge. The other challenge was a Cupcake Challenge sketch that had no prize with it.
