Challenge 5 - Love & Friendship

vUPDATE: I noticed that I initially left off a couple of the DT's cards as I didn't realise I hadn't added their cards to this post. I just wanted to say I'm really sorry and I've added your cards back onto the post now, how ditzy am I?! Sorry about that!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Challenge 5! Thanks for all your beautiful entries last month, we really enjoyed coming to see what you'd come up with to keep warm!

OK, first of all, the winner of the Smirk stamps, ribbon and alphabet stickers is:


Congratulations Jan! Please email Georgia at: gwelch96@googlemail.com with your home address, so your goodies can be posted out to you!




For this month's challenge, seeing as this is the month of Valentine's Day, we would like to see you incorporating love or friendship into your card/project.

There is an optional extra this month of hearts, to go with the Love & Friendship theme, but remember that the optional extra is not compulsory.





This month, we are being sponsored by our very own Ruth, who owns her own stamping range, which you can view either on her blog, A Passion For Cards, or at her exclusive stamp blog, A Passion For Stamps, where she has a display of all her stamps for sale and cards made by her Design Team. Also, even if you don't win this challenge, check out Ruth's blog as she is currently running a Buy-One-Get-One-Free sale! Be sure to check out Ruth's gorgeous cards on her blog too, her images are so lovely!


Ruth is offering two of her stamps for one lucky winner - good luck!



Finally, our Guest Designer this month is Fern, from My Crafty World. Fern has only just turned twelve and makes absolutely stunning cards - when you see her cards, you will find it hard to believe that she only discovered stamping in 2009 - her work is simply gorgeous and her blog is well worth a look!



Here are our cards for your inspiration:



















Jane




Claire



Donna







Lisa



You have until 8:00pm on Thursday 4th March 2010. Don't forget to tune in again on Friday 5th March to find out the lucky winner of Ruth's prize! :)


Thanks for entering and have fun!
