Challenge - A gift for someone

Hi everyone.

I hope you all had a good week this week - what with craft shows up at Harrogate and a difference from one day to another with the weather - I think we've all been tied up with other things. However, we're still here and we love to see all your cards. There were some lovely entries again this week, so keep up the good work everyone.. you do some beautiful projects.
Anyway, onto this weeks challenge, and as you can see, we would like you to make
A GIFT FOR SOMEONE
Here are a few samples from our inspirational Design Team. I am very pleased to add that Jo Wardle has also agreed to become a permanent member of our DT.. what a pleasure to have her on board with all the other great team members we have.

Challenge - Mother's Day

Hi everyone..
Sorry for the delay in posting this challenge, but yesterday I was in Peterborough filming a
couple of shows for Create and Craft.
However, I'm back now and here's the challenge for this week.
We would like you to make a card for your mum.
If you don't want to make a Mum card,
then feel free to do it for a female occasion.
It's been really lovely checking out your cards for the last week, keep up the good work everyone.
Here are our DT cards for this week for your inspiration.

Challenge - St Patrick's Day

Well, here we are again.. I can't quite believe it's Monday again already! I must say, there were some beautiful cards on your blogs last week - it's a joy to visit each of you and see your fantastic pieces of work!
This week we are celebrating St Patrick's Day here in the UK, so to do our own little bit of celebrating, the theme for the challenge this week is
ST. PATRICK'S DAY
We would love to see your cards using this as inspiration. You could do use shamrock's, the colour green, wording, the choice is entirely upto you... here are our DT samples for you to browse through.
Don't forget to leave a comment so we can visit your blogs. Enjoy the challenge!
Here's the card from March's Guest Designer, Jo Wardle..

Challenge - 9 March

Hi again everyone.. I can't believe it's the 9th March already! Doesn't time go quick  - or is that a sign of getting older?? Thank you all so much for entering the challenge last week - it was great to say so many of you entering again.
Anyway, this week we have a sketch challenge for you.. the sketch has been made by our very own Nikki.
Here it is (I will upload a larger pic shortly - yahoo pics is acting up!)

Challenge - St. Davids Day

Happy St. David's Day to all those who are celebrating.
Before we begin this week, I would love to thank you all for taking part of the DT challenge, and fashionably
late for me, would love to introduce you to
who has won the DT place for this next month.
Congratulations Jo.. we look forward to working with you during this month.
So, as you can see above, the Challenge this week is to use this special day for our inspiration  -
ST. DAVID's DAY
For this week's challenge, we would love for you to use this as your theme -
this could be the colours or even just the wording.
Here are a few cards to get you going.
 March's GDT member - Joanne
and here it is in closer detail - see how she changed the little flowers to create daffies?
