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.


GOOD LUCK!!!

Week 8 - Navy, Turquoise and Lime...

A very happy Sunday to you all and welcome!

Last week produced an amazing array of beautiful cards and creations from you all and lots of you were able to include the extra option of wings. It is so nice to have so many participants when we don't even offer a weekly prize, you really are making our challenge an amazing success! Talking of prizes, there will be some candy to give away next week hopefully as I wanted to put something nice together to celebrate my birthday which has just passed this week and also passing 10,000 hits on this blog - isn't that wonderful?! I am just waiting on delivery of a rather yummy and extremely difficult to get hold of stamp set...... got you wondering now, haven't I?

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Sarita. I am sure that many of you will already be familiar with her work, but if you haven't yet had the pleasure of visiting her blog then please hop over - you won't be disappointed. She has a very unique style and an amazing talent for creating the most beautiful cards using stunning colours. I think this week's colour combination is a real winner. And of course Sarita has drawn on her trademark for the optional extra!

Here is your colour combination then:













For this week's extra option we would like you to create your card or project without using any design papers, but please remember that this is not compulsory. If you would like to use this option, here are some ideas for you - heat embossing, dry embossing, chalking, distressing, stamping, doodling, watercolouring.....


Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!

Week Seven - Red and Green

Hi folks - it's Sunday again already...... how time flies!!

Thank you all for your wonderful entries last week. We really didn't expect so many of you to join in as the colours were a little more tricky and we thought the optional extra might keep some of you away. Actually, it's nice to see that some of you took part without the extra bit, your cards were brilliant too!

This week's colours might steer you towards Christmas which is fine as you will be able to tick another card off your Christmas list and that always feels good. The colours also work really well for other times of the year though as you will see from the Design Team creations, fabulous aren't they?

Here is your colour combination then:







For this week's extra option we would like you to add wings, but please remember that this is not compulsory. You could use animals and insects that have wings, but many of our well-loved characters also have little wings tucked away (Tilda springs to mind here)!

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

Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!
