Anything Goes :)

Hi peeps and hope you are all OK today - what a lovely Spring day it is in Chester today.
I hope it's as nice where you are.

A huge thank you to everybody who joined in last  week - your cards and projects were fab and there were some great interpretations of the old sketchie  :)

So who was our winner then ?


Woohooo Marianne this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Heidi and hugest of thanks to Simon Says Stamp for sponsoring us xxx

And check out what  Marianne did peeps ....

What a gorgeous card using sketch #89.

Aren't the colours pretty and how sweet does Annabel look  :)

Now onto this week and as it’s the first one of the month we have our usual

Anything Goes

theme and this month’s optional extra is to use no patterned paper – how scary!!!

But remember this is only an option and if you don’t want to use this theme then you don’t have to.
The main thing is to let loose your creative stuff and make a card that pleases YOU :)

As our regulars will know, the first challenge of the month is sponsored by the lovely Lisa & Laila over at

Lili of The Valley

And they have given us a …

… to give to one lucky winner.

And with so much to choose from in the shop, one lucky girlie is going to be spoiled for choice!!!!

Hugest of thanks for a fabulous prize :)xxx

And now without further ado, lets see what our fabulous team have done…

So that’s what we did and now it’s over to you, and if you get a sec, don’t forget to check out our individual blogs and see what else we have been up to.

As always, could we ask a huge favour peeps please.

Could you help to make our job at leaving comments easier by turning off comment verification and enabling comment moderation instead please pretty please xxxx. It’s ever so easy to do – see our sidebar – and you won’t get spam comments as you can easily reject the comments that you don't want to appear.

Can we remind you nicely that’s it’s fine to combine challenges but please, no back linking. We hope you understand that it’s only fair to those who make a new card xxx

And could we ask that you restrict your number of entries please to no more than 5

Thanks ever so muchly – we really do appreciate it xxx

And  just to let you know that sometimes it is not possible for the Design Team to leave a comments on every entry, with these Blogger issues that some of us are having at the mo – grrrrrr what a nightmare. But please be assured that we do stop by and we are doing our best and every single eligible entry goes into the draw for our prizes even if we don’t manage to leave you a comment.

Thanks for bearing with us and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
