And now for my Headliner:



Colleen's stenciled card was SO eye-catching! I loved the yummy raspberry/pink flowerpots against the peach backdrop, as well as the various greens she used to stamp the succulents. The arched shape and rounded corners add so much interest. Lucky is the friend who receives this card! Congratulations, Colleen, on being my choice for Headliner this week!

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for an awesome Sketch Challenge from Anne Marie!

Colleen Begley

Colleen's card really took me by surprise this week; it has both a heart and flower, yet not presented in an obvious way. I love her inked bokeh background, which was a clever way to add colour and highlight her floral silhouette. Paired with the perfect sentiment to express her love, her card made me want to rush to my craft room and start experimenting with backgrounds too. I love it when a card is not only perfect for the theme but also inspires me creatively - congratulations Colleen, you are my Headliner this week!

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a pretty Color Challenge from LeAnne!

PP675 - A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Hello - Joanne here with this week's new challenge! Firstly a big thank you to everyone who played along with Jaydee's sketch challenge last week - there were so many fabulous entries! This week it's theme week and since February is here and Valentine's Day is around the corner, I chose the theme of 'Love'. Your card doesn't have to be a Valentine's card - it could be for a wedding anniversary or simply to say 'I love you', but should be made with a loved one in mind. So get out your hearts and flowers, wine and chocolates or whatever else takes your fancy and get creating - I can't wait to see what you make!


Before you get out those stamps, dies and papers, check out the inspiration from our amazing Design Team this week:

And now on to our HEADLINER:

Cornelia

Stempel Spass


Cornelia's loopy cats made me laugh and I am a sucker for rainbows!  So, the rainbow blended background appealed to me to begin with. The touch of the black enamel dots helps to bring attention to that perfect sentiment.  Such a fun card and a great take on our sketch.  Congratulations, Cornelia, you are our HEADLINER this week.

Again, thank you to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners! Please be sure to pick up your badges here. We hope you will display them proudly.  Come back tomorrow for a lovely Theme Challenge from Joanne!
