X is for.....

'X on a Sketch'

I bet you'd all been wondering what we were going to choose for this week's theme! lol

Design team member Helen has created a sketch for you to use. You may re-size, flip or rotate the sketch, but as long as the original elements are still visible...including of course the 'X', then that's ok with us!

The design team have created some fabulous cards to inspire you this week:

Dawn



Vicky

U is for........

Welcome back this week to our First Anniversary.

To celebrate this fact (we went fortnightly last year for a short while) the Design Team will be each choosing their favourite entries to win a small prize. We will then be choosing an overall winner to become a permanent member of the design team. If you wish to be considered for the DT place, please can you get your entries in my midday on Tuesday so that the design team have chance to visit your blogs and choose.

Congratulations too to our newest design team member Fiona (she did such a good job as our guest designer for June we decided to keep her) who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on Saturday, so we have let her off making a card for us this week!

So to our theme well as it is Independence Day at the weekend we thought that

U is for United States

You can choose anything to fit this theme that inspires you, be it red, white and blue, stars and stripes, you get the idea. As ever to help you here are the design teams work.

Cathy













If you wish to be considered for the design team place, please put the letters 'DT' after your name when adding your link to Mr Linky.

If you don't want to be considered for the DT place, we hope that you'll still join in the fun, and help us to celebrate our first anniversary...who knows...you may even win a little prize!

Looking forward to seeing your creations!
