Don't forget we will be posting a new challenge every Saturday. If you don't have a blog, then email us your work and we will be happy to put it on the blog.

Here is some inspiration from our Design Team, don't forgot to check out their blogs too for more fabulous work.

Thanks again girls for all your wonderful work.

Another great challenge & DT cards! Now I'm going to be cheeky for 2 reasons: I very rarely make a "no blue" man's card as my husband is an Everton fan (!) but I made and loaded one yesterday for our wedding anniversary (would have no reason in the next God knows how long to make another one LOL) .... and I'll be busy all weekend due to family commitments .... so I hope you don't mind if i enter yesterday's card (I have entered a new card nearly every week :-) ). Don't mind if it is ineleigible for the prize - would just love people to have a peek :-) It's here!
