Thank you so much Michele, i was amazed to have cards from you this week, as i launched challenge Monday morning and you flew out to Dubai on Tuesday afternoon!! Xxx
Lilian's card has a different look to the others in today's line up mostly because she chose different categories, i think that the majority of us went for Christmas card categories.
I love how you have created the multi layer look, purely with stamping, your card really does look like it has dimension!
Lilian used Categories:
Fall/Birthday/Die cut (sentiment).
Thank you so much Lilian for taking part despite feeling unwell and celebrating your birthday. I hope that the antibiotics have done their job and that you are feeling much brighter. XXX

Margaret has used the gorgeous Red Velvet card from Pink Frog Crafts, you have to see it in your hand to appreciate its beauty!
Margaret has also used the Stampin'Up! 'Springtime Impressions' Thinlits to decorate this beautiful Birthday card, the sentiment was punched using the 'Lovely Label Punch'

Right ladies, I think that's all for this weeks challenge entries, I hope that i haven't forgotten anyone! I was writing the blog on my mobile phone in the car on the way home from my Mum's last night. I checked both emails and Messenger!
The journey yesterday was very long and very frustrating as it was persistent, torrential rain both there and back, in fact it didn't stop all day. People don't seem to adjust their driving according to the conditions, visibility was really poor because of the rain and standing water, lorries creating spray that constantly covered the windscreen but people were so impatient, driving so closely together, there were even cars without lights on, making then virtually invisible! I was glad to get into bed let me tell you!!
My sister had made a lovely Lasagne for our lunch, which was delicious and a lovely Cheesecake, which was a real treat.
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday,
Love and hugs to you all,
