Get your sketch on!!

Happy Thursday everyone.

It's great to be back after my little adventure in Israel.

As I am your hostess this week, I thought a sketch would be nice. You can rotate the sketch if you want to.

And this week, I have a prize for the winner (I have been clearing out my NBUS) - so the prize is this wonderful birdcage die by xcut that I have NEVER used!

Here is the inspiration from the awesome Team B -


You have until Wednesday 4th February at 20:00 UTC to post your fabulous creation.

Before we go we have a Design Team Call on going just now. If you are interested please pop over to the following post HERE for details.  

Love from the Design Team x

Perfectly co-ordinated buttons - both in colour and shape :o)

Dies and Punches Top 3

There were so many wonderful submissions this week, I was overjoyed and spoiled for choice.

I had to look really long and hard to determine a winner and I wanted to call out why they caught my eye as they were all so lovely!

So in no particular order these are the top 3 this week:

23. Lorraine A - your die cut pram is just so pretty and yet limiting it to two colors means it is very CAS and modern. I think the stitching is adorable as well.

54. Hyde 'N Seek Creations - you really embraced the punch and die combo and I love the shaker card. It's simple and effective and I just found it so cheerful with your layers and details.

39. Diane W - your piecing on this card is superb! Love your layered flowers and dies - it's just so bring and springy and detailed and well coordinated!

And then I had to do a few shout outs because there were so many awesome entries and I really just couldn't limit it to 3.

86. Emily D - This red apple card is so great, and I love the unusual die around the image. It's CAS and you have great details in the stitching and layers of the leaf and little tag - I think it's perfect for this challenge.

63. Penny - OMG this pig made me laugh, he's great! Love your color combos.

91. Marianne's Craftroom - You have done a beautiful piece with fabric and flowers, this is just so rich with texture.

103. Alicia O'Bryant - Hexagons + bees = a really fun modern card. Especially the muted gold, it's beautiful.

Thanks again for joining and be sure to check out our challenge for next week!
