Janet's Challenge Card
Janet has used some of the earliest Spellbinders that I remember
(And I own) 'Fleur De Lis Doilly Accents', I actually had forgotten how much
I like them! The three circles are mounted upon the 'Fleur de Lis' accents, the
Border from the set have used to create the pretty border under the ribbon.
A gorgeous card Janet, it will be fun to see how many people have owned these
Early spellbinders too. Thank you for taking part xxx

I am in awe of your talent Karen, those shoes are 'killer heels', Karen has cut in
Black gloss card, they were created in scan & cut too, I hope that when we get this retreat sorted you will be giving me some serious 1,to1 tuition, although I know that Cheryl will want to learn too! Thank you so much for your inspiration Karen xxx

Lynda has used one of the fantastic cheap dies from China, I think I have
Ordered this one too, it works so well with assortment of beautiful Butterflies that
Lynda has arranged around it, a gorgeous card Lynda thank you so much xxx
Lilian's Challenge Card
Oh Lilian I absolutely love this card, sometimes it's the simplest of designs that
Have the best impact, can I ask what the 'stitched' looking border is that
You have used? I really like it!, Your flowers are coloured beautifully to match
Your background colour, everything is just perfect down to the pretty how
On the sentiment, thank you Lilian for taking part xxx

Of using them like this, I love the papers you have caused too, those butterflies
Are really pretty, those gemstones really finish them beautifully.

Thank you so much for taking part xxx
Margaret & Sue's idea for a
Now Margaret makes a Challenge card every week but this week
She has had surgery on her wrist so was unable to craft.
While at the Farnborough show, we were all stood chatting with the
Lovely ladies cat the 'Honeydoo Crafts' stand, Margaret said that she thought
That this card was perfect for the sketch this week and that maybe they could photograph it and send it in !! (Joking of course) !
So ladies, I have done it for you !!
Thanks for thinking about taking part xxx
On the subject of that I was surprised to see on one or two stands had
'photographs only with owners permission' signs on.
Usually you are free to take photos, we have done many times to use for inspiration.
When we asked why, it was explained that some people were taking photographs
And entering them into competitions in magazines etc.
Can you believe that people would actually have the nerve and cheek to do
Such a thing??! I was gob smacked, I was under the impression that
Crafters were the most kind, caring and generous natured people,
(well with a few exceptions), the same lady was telling us that one individual
Spent ages in conversation with a stall owner but was then found with over a £100 of stolen goods in her bag, from that stand and the next one! Unbelievable!!
I guess there are always exceptions!
Thank you so much ladies for taking the time to take part
In this weeks Challenge, I will keep doing them for as long as
You all enjoy taking part xxx
Have a lovely Sunday
Love & Hugs
