Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
I hope you are all having a lovely weekend do far, we have certainly been blessed with good weather, we ordered some new patio furniture last week, sadly it won't arrive until Wednesday but it will hopefully be worth the wait and the weather stays until then so that we can use it, we have a beautiful, peaceful back garden that isn't over looked at all, which is a novelty for us as the patio at the bungalow was like a stage, that was raised up and over looked on every aspect.
Well i'm sure you have heard enough of my waffle, let's get to the exciting part...
Your gorgeous cards...
Wow Lilian, your challenge card this week is stunning, have you stamped those butterflies or are they part of the gorgeous printed paper. I do love to see sentiments stamped onto vellum, it looks so delicate and doesn't take away from that beautiful background.
Thank you so much fod taking part in this weeks challenge.

Maria, your challenge card is gorgeous, I absolutely love your card, the colours are so pretty, I love that lattice background, it looks like flowers growing up a trellis fence.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks challenge.
Margaret's card looks like a beautiful flower border, the paper was an old magazine freebie, although you wouldn't think it. Such a beautiful card Margaret, thank you so much for taking part.
Janet has created two amazing challenge cards this week, here is Janet's description:
"The first CC is made using this week's challenge (lilac)
I used Crafter's Companion 300gsm card 'Lilac and Blues) for the florals and Tonic glitter card (orange) for the internal. The dies are Tonic 'Square Flourish Set'.
The second is CC 'Lilac' using Sue Wilson 'Noble Collection classic Adorned Octagon die."
I really love the lilac card Janet, that die cut sentiment is stunning.
Thank you so much for taking part.
Val, two real 'wow' cards made with John Lockwood's Gerbera's, I love how you have created that stunning background and embellished the card with the matching Gerbera's and perfectly matched ribbon. Two stunning cards Val, thank you so very much for taking part.
Karen has created 3 fantastic challenge cards this week, I am so thrilled to see that you have done some stamping this week Karen, you have done it perfectly too. Your blending on your second card is fantastic, I love that colour combo too!
First cc Using a printed sentiment and alcohol markers Saw Francoise from CE do this.
2nd cc Used Wilted Violet and Cracked Pistachio Inkyliscoius stamp (get me!) and SW dies No Serif in sight!
Next card is for a Salsa friend who always dresses up in fab dresses So all Serif (freebie Graceful Dancer) with a bit of pink glitter.
Cheryl has made a beautiful challenge card this week, featuring both the colours and the sketch, I love the delicate colour palette, that embossed background is beautiful too.
Thank you so much Cheryl for making the card for this weeks challenge and to Jamie for taking the photo.
Lorraine is a lovely lady over on Dannii's Fb group where I share our challenge, this is her stunning Challenge card, such beautiful, delicate colours, gorgeous embossed vellum and pretty butterflies.
Thank you so much Lorraine for taking part in this weeks challenge.
Kaye has used the brand new papers from the '' Share What you Love" suitd I love the idea of using the tag to recreate the sketch. Such a pretty card Kaye thank you so much for taking part in this week's Challenge.
Val your challenge card is just so cute, I absolutely love those cute little characters that you have used, that embossed background works perfectly with your jungle theme. Thank you so much for taking part in this week's Challenge.
Wow Ladies, you have made some absolutely stunning cards for this weeks challenge. I am so grateful to all of you for taking the time in your busy lives to make a card for the challenge.
Lynda has suggested a challenge that uses just an embossing folder and a sentiment, I think it sounds like a great challenge, what do you all think????
Have a lovely Sunday ladies, enjoy the sunshine.
Love and hugs
