**coming soon**



I'm definitely a pearls gal; I love their soft lustre and I have packs of them in every possible colour! I've even added some extra pearls on a string amongst the flowers.





I have always loved buttons.  I loved to go to estate sales for the wonderful buttons you could find. I like using them on cards because they can add a feminine, masculine, simple or elegant look depending on the button you use.




I do love to use pearls on feminine cards. Male cards require something a little more rugged, so buttons can look really interesting embellishments.





I love pearls, because of their elegant look. I don't like a lot of bulk on my card, so I prefer pearls and especially mini pearls.





I love pearls, they add that elegant touch and are definitely more suitable to this style of card than buttons.



I have tons of both...as you do, but decided upon buttons here, as they were the perfect size for the flower centres.



I do like buttons and pearls, but I tend to use buttons for boys and pearls for girls, and as I make more girls cards than boys, I guess that makes pearls my favourite!






I don´t have a favorite. It depends on the type of card that I´m making.
For this card I used pearls because they suit better with this card.





So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

Your Favourite Spring or Easter (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

I don't usually make Easter cards so I have to choose Spring for this challenge. I love to see the flowers after the garden has been dead all Winter and this little bunny hopping along looks to me to be full of the joys of Spring!





I don't tend to make many Easter cards, but I love Spring because it means that the longer days and lighter evenings are on their way.  
I've used Spring colours and florals on this supersized tag.





I love making Easter cards for family and friends because this is my favourite holiday.  I also love the bright, happy colours you get to use not the mention the cute critters that are customary.






Elaine

Instead of Easter Eggs I like to  make up goody bags and tags for the family.
This way I can put their favourite snack in the bag.





I love making Easter cards, so I decided to make an Easter card for this challenge. I love the bright colours you can use on your cards, but I think maybe I should make more spring cards and hopefully the Dutch weather will be inspired by my cards and spring will come in the Netherlands. ;)






Lynne
I don't make Easter cards so have chosen Spring. I love all the Spring flowers coming to life in the garden and the longer days.


I have made an Easter card because I found a similar one on Pinterest aaaaaages ago and couldn't think of another occasion for which to use such a bunny!! So cute and perfect for Easter. I bet he is stashing chocolate eggs in that burrow!!






I like Spring .... and I like Easter .... so it was a 50/50 choice for me on this one.
I chose Easter, because I am a sucker for a furry wabbit bringing me chocolate!






Spring. I love the flowering of the flowers, the new leaves on the trees, the young animals, cows that enter the meadow after a winter in the stable, etc. It makes me happy.




So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Flower  (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


Anne

My other love after crafting is photography. I love taking photos of flowers in my garden and one of the most photogenic is the osteospermum which is a variety of daisy. They come in lots of different colours and varieties and I found this LOTV image of a fairy sitting on top of one to use for this challenge!







Although I've used blooms in my image and papers, it's the floral embellishments that I have chosen for my favourite.  I really love the Wild Orchid Craft open roses and white lilies.  I love their 3D effect and especially the pretty petals on the lilies.  I also love roses in my garden, and my favourite is called Sweet Juliet. It is an apricot colour and has an amazingly strong and beautiful scent.






Brenda

We have some beautiful flowers in our yard.  We have beautiful orchids, anthurium and bromeliads of all colours and sizes, some with amazing scents.  I have to say though, daffodils are still a favourite as they a sign that Spring was on the way.





Elaine


I love all flowers so it is hard to pick just one. I have chosen this cornflower paper and die. It has a lovely vibrant colour and yet it is delicate.





As a dutch person I had to go for tulips for this challenge. Spring is approaching and I am starting to see tulips everywhere in the stores. I love the shape of a tulip and I love seeing them in all the different colours. I have made a card for my my memory dex.





Lynne

I love lots of different flowers, but have chosen tulips.  They are a sign that we are seeing the end of winter, they look so regal in their displays and come in such wonderful colours.


At this time of year Snowdrops are my favourite flower. They are like little white beacons on a cold and grey day and, I always think, a hint that spring is on the way. 



I have a few favourites, but for sentimental family reasons, I chose a dog rose this time, I love the simplicity of the flower form and it's wildness whilst still managing to look absolutely stunning.






I have a lot of favourite flowers. For this challenge I chose one of my favourite animal, stamp brand and flowers.
I live in the bulb region in the Netherlands and the bulb fields are so beautiful in the flowering season. I am lucky enough to cycle to work along some fields. Great scent and colours. Good start to begin the day.




So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
