Greta says: Red Star is a gorgeous PB stamp & Viv has used it to make a card that looks like a watercolour painting! Love the simple beauty!

Helen's Favourite:  #64 - Tirpuunen

Helen Says: I love the soft muted colours of this joy-filled card!

Lorraine's Favourite: #50 - Marjeta

Lorraine says: Simply stunning!

Natalie's Favourite: #23 - Anke

Natalie says: This is a lovely scenic card, the vibrant blue skyline really makes the card pop!

Sue's Favourite: #16 - Maura

Sue says: I love ALL of Maura's creations! She does amazing masking scenes!
