June Challenge

 

The challenge for June was “All about the sentiment”.

So that meant that the main focus of your card should be the sentiment. Again we had some gorgeous card entered and although not as many as other months it was still hard to pick a winner. The winner though was….

Pat

Pat (Mum) made this lovely pink and brown metallic card with a lovely verse about a single rose. I love that she combined the verse with the one single rose on the card as well. Very clever!

This lovely card was made by Sue and got my vote for the encouragement award. Not only did Sue come a close second with this card, but all the flowers were beautifully hand made and I loved the sentiment.

May Challenge

 

My deepest apologies for taking so long to post these cards. I have been so busy lately and I just can’t find enough hours in the day to get everything done Sad smile  Sadly that meant time on the computer to edit photos and post to the blog has taken a back seat to more important things – like stocktake. Did I ever tell you how much I hate doing stocktake??? One of life’s necessary evils!

Anyway, without further ado here are the cards for the May challenge. The theme was autumn colours…not necessarily an autumn theme…but autumn colours. I have to say that I was really impressed with the ideas and cards that you all came up with.

The winner for this challenge was

Rhonda

Rhonda made this beautiful easel card.

Congratulations  Rhonda.

I picked Maralene’s card for the encouragement award. I was really impressed by the improvement in Maralene’s work and I knew how hard she’d worked to make the roses. Well done Maralene.
