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.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

I chose to make a set of cards for the baby theme.
If possible I always try to make a pair so I have some cards for in my stash.





Anne
I like to give personalised name cards for a baby and these Lili of the Valley alpha bears are perfect






I love making shaped keepsake cards like this 
babygro card with his cute baby giraffe.




I love making super soft crochet afghans for the special babies in my life.  They are just so soft and snuggly and the parents always seem to appreciate them.  I haven't had any babies to crochet for lately, so here is a card I've made.




Elaine

Baby cards and projects are a joy to make. I love knitting tiny baby clothes. I may be old fashioned but I think there is nothing cuter than a new baby in a hand knitted cardigan.




Jayne
I like to make a baby card following the sender's specifications. This one was for a Grandma to be who loved the image and wanted something 'very pink'!!


Larissa


I love making personalised gifts and cards for baby. I love to include their name on my project, because that makes it extra special. I like to make a gift package that matches my present with the colours and name and I really hope the parents enjoy it.



Lisa
**coming soon**


I love making baby cards and I try to make them a different shape to my normal square cards, because it is such a special occasion for the parents.



I like to make baby cards. I usually have one pink and one blue new baby card to hand.



As I was told it wasn't appropriate to make a muzzle, I made a 
door-hanger for the nursery instead, which could double-up as a do-not-disturb
when the sprog sweet little thing is sleeping




I love making baby cards. Usually I get my inspiration from the card that I get from the parents.




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

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

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


Anne
Despite good intentions of doing a couple each month, 
I haven't actually made any Christmas cards yet this year! 
I much prefer using pretty Summer colours 
like this yellow and pink combination





I don't normally opt for orange and yellow 
but I have been feeling really cold lately 
(despite it being June!) 
so I'm craving some warm colours.  
These sunshine tones fit the bill perfectly.







Summer colours make me smile, they are my favourite colours to use!



I love summer colours because they are bright and cheerful.



Jayne
With the miserable grey weather we've had of late I've been craving some jolly Summertime zingy colours and this cheery Hummingbird definitely fits the bill!





Larissa
I have picked summer colours. I love that you can use bright and happy colours in the summer and I love those. When I saw this stamp set I immediately thought about happy pastels that are perfect for an ice cream truck.




I don't really like hot weather, but I do tend to use far more bright summery colours on my cards than winter ones... I like all colours though, I'm not fussy!




I've chosen Summer as I love to see all the wonderful flowers out in the gardens, everything seems so lush and healthy.



I tend to choose the icy cool colours of Winter. I had my own "colours done" many years ago and the colours in my wardrobe have always influenced my paper choices too!!

 

Being a furry little critter, I have an affinity with winter, 
and really struggle with summer, 
tail wilt is a real issue in high temperatures.
It was a tough choice as I love all colours, 
but it's been a long time since I played with winter colours 
and wanted a chance to cool down.




 I love the colours in the summer. 
The green grass, the (meadow) flowers, the leaves 

and flowers on the (fruit) trees. 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.
