This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite colour combo from either 
Pink & Green 
OR 
Blue & Orange.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

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


Anne
I didn't have to think long about this; pink and green is one of my favourite colour combinations and I use it a lot. You can mix pastel shades or brighter and different patterns too, they always look really lovely together.
The image and sentiment are from our sponsor this week, Lili of the Valley






Ideally I'd prefer pink and blue because I'm not a huge fan of orange, but neither do I like a lot of green.  I think my fondness for pink outweighs my dislike of green so I've opted for that combo (with a touch of blue).  The image and sentiment are from our sponsor this week, Lili of the Valley



It's pink and green for me, though this card has orange and blue in it also.  This is actually one of my favourite colour combinations, they are such happy colours.  If I had to pick a least favourite colour, it would definitely be orange.





Elaine


I often use pink and green together. This card is in subtle tones, which I think have a certain elegance.



Jayne
This was a no-brainer for me! I love pink and green and use it them as a colour combo all the time. It's even perfect for Christmas :-)




Larissa


Although I like the colours blue and orange, I don't like the combination of these 2. I think it is really hard to colour anything in these colours. Pink and green are a perfect match for me, they are so pretty together. 



Lisa
**coming soon**




This was an easy choice for me. I love pink and green, I like blue too, but would never think of it as a choice to go with orange.



I think that pink and green together is one of Mother Nature's favourite colour combos...just look out of your window at this time of year!!



I wish I had gone for blue and orange now, but I chose pink and green because it suited this image I so desperately wanted to use!




When I saw this paper pad I immediately fell in love with the colour combination and the designs. My favourite colour is green but not in combination with pink. So this paper pad came in handy. I made a box for my friend's birthday with Rituals handscrub and handbalsem.






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
I love all flowers but I think daisies would have to be one of my favourites, it takes me back to school days, making daisy chains and playing he loves me... he loves me not!





I have lots of favourite flowers, but in the summer I really love roses and lilies. 
I've used both on my card today, as well as some cherry blossom and floral papers too!



There are so many flowers I favour, but I love black eyed Susans.  I love their bright sunny colour, they way the follow the sun through the day and their elegant simplicity.




I love poppies, they are one of my favourite flowers. This die is a particular favourite. It is so versatile, I use it all the time.



Jayne
I have a confession. I'm no gardener and I have no idea what most flowers are called - I know that's pretty shameful! When my husband send me flowers he always asks for pink flowers - because they're my favourite! So, my card features pink flowers!!




Larissa
I really like poppies. I think their colour is amazing and I love when I see them on the side of the road in the grass. It makes them pop even more against the green,




Lisa
**coming soon**


I love lots of flowers, but above all others pansies are my favourite.  I have them in the garden in winter and summer and they come in the most beautiful shades of my fave colours, blue and purple.


I have chosen daisies and sunflowers, as favourites, previously so this time I thought about winter flowers and have chosen poinsettia. I always have them in the house during the winter months and a £1 supermarket plant lasted well into August one year!! 



It is hard to choose a favourite flower, although daisies are high on the list.  However, there seems to be a bit of a family thing for growing dahlias, and they always make me think of home.




I have a lot of favourite flowers, it's hard to choose. Sweet peas are in the top 3 of my favourite flowers (with peony roses and ranunculus).
I love the wonderful scent of the sweet peas and the delicate colours. A bouquet of sweet peas 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 Bird or Beast (& why)
Just a reminder that to be chosen as our winner or Top 3 
you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite

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

First up, our fabulous Guest Designer for July and her beautiful card:

Marieke

Birds, because the summer and the warm weather remind me 
of pretty birds with pretty colours.



Anne


I love both birds and beasts but my favourite at the moment have to be the adorable new mice (ssshhh, I don't want them to hear me calling them beasties) by Tracy Easson. The stamps all come with a story, I love mice anyway but she just brings them to life



I'm a bit nervous around things that fly or flutter, so for me it's definitely the cute and furries which win this contest, in particular bunnies!  




I am a fan of both birds and beasts, but dogs are just my favourite, I hope you can consider them a beast.  There's nothing like that little tail wagging to greet you when you get home, they always bring a smile to my face!




Elaine


I love both birds and beasts, but I don't have a lot of bird images. So I have made a card with a fine specimen of a beast. He is great for male cards and Christmas.

**coming soon**

Larissa

I like both birds and beasts, but most of the times I use my favourite beast on my cards: the mouse, so I had to use one on this card. I just love their cute faces.




Lisa
**coming soon**

I like both, but I have a bigger variety of cute beasts than birds and I do like cute.



Normally I would choose beast but in the sake of fairness I have coloured up some cute birds this time to try and conquer my fear!!



OK, so, I like watching the garden birds, and I am very fond of British species like sparrows, blackbirds (their song fills me with joy), robins, and starlings, BUT, if I have to choose between them for making a card then the beast in me wins every time!




I have no favourite for this challenge. I both like birds and beasts. So I chose my favourite beast: Henry the mouse. Such a versatile stamp. 




So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
