This week it's me, Brenda, setting the challenge for you, and it's the very first time I have ever done this so please be kind to me. As a new DT member I have to say that it's a real privilege hopping over to your blogs to see your amazing creations, there is so much inspiration to see.
Firstly our sponsor this week are Lilac Lemon Designs who are a relatively new company to the market, opening it's checkout in September 2009. Their stamps are unique and hopefully appealing to all ages. Most of the stamps are made from high quality red rubber but they do have a new line of clear stamps which work beautifully with Nestabilities as well as on their own."
Go take a look at what they have in their shop at
The lucky winner will receive 2 stamps of their choice that are in stock at the shop. So lets see your creative juices flowing.
Well, my favourite style is Vintage cum Shabby Chic and if you looked on my blog last week at Toby in a Basket you would have seen that I gave you clues to the theme for this week and said "think pastel and think shabby chic/vintage, so the theme from me is called Vintage Pastel and I have also got a sketch for you.
We would like to see any elements of vintage in your images or ephemera and of course light colours. Use the sketch creatively, you can flip, rotate or resize the sketch and please add embellishments if you want to, we just ask that we can see the layout in your completed design.
I hope you enjoy the challenge I know it will take some of you outside your comfort zone, as it did some of the design team, but then cute does that for me and as for clean and simple I really struggle with that, I always want to ink the edges and distress them, I just can't help myself.
Here are some wonderful creations from our amazing design team as inspiration to get you going. They have done an incredible job this week in their designs. These cards are just the tops and will definitely get you thinking about the challenge.
So it's over to you. Have fun and enjoy.
We are really looking forward to coming and seeing what you come up with and are ready to leave you some positive encouragement and sweet comments.

Good luck and have fun!
Luv & hugs,

Before I start with my challenge this week, I have the sad news that this is my last week as a member of the DT here. I have had a fantastic year with the girls, & have made some amazing friends through the blog. Thank you xxRight onto this week's sketch. We don't have a sponsor this week so the lucky winner will get to join the girls & be a Guest DT for 2 weeks. So if you fancy the challenge here is the sketch
As usual you can flip, rotate or tweek the sketch but please keep the layout the same. We don't have a theme this week so "Anything Goes".
Clare W has joined us again this week as a GDT so I will start off the DT cards with her great card
Clare, Heidi, Hazel, Lisa, Shell, Brenda xx
