I'm sorry but I also have to make a special shout out to aNNie who made this fab project using one of my freebie clock templates!  I was so proud to see it!  :0)

So, onto our 50th challenge

The sponsor of this challenge is

Stamp & Create

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite Technique Lines or No Lines (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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

I have dabbled with the no-lines technique but it scares me still, so although I love it, I'm just not brave enough.  I think it looks fab when it's done well though.

My Favourite is Lines.  2 reasons; the first I have never had enough courage
to try no lines and secondly, in this case I am paper piecing so I need to see the lines!

Simple answer from me, I can't see them lol! So it has to be lines, bad enough getting it right on these kinda images. 


I love lines, they make the image pop out. 



It's lines for me. I like definition and lines give just that.  Lines can also make the colours on your card sing, as in this case.


**coming soon**

I prefer lines! Simply because I have never tried "no lines". 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge, show us your style and 
showcase your Favourite Technique Lines or No Lines (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
