Woohooo Car-D-licious (Larissa)  this week it’s you chick :)

Well done to you and if you e-mail me, I’ll pass your details on to Mary  and hugest of thanks to The Ribbon Girl for sponsoring us xxx

And check out what Larissa did peeps …..

...  oooh my gosh, this is so cute. 
I love this image, especially the glasses :)

So onto this week's challenge and our theme is …

White + 1

… so all we want you to do is to use white as your base colour and then use one more colour as well.
This can be different shades of your chosen colour and it doesn’t include hair and skin if you are using images.

This week we are very pleased to introduce a brand new sponsor and it is our very own Liz’s new company,  Buttons For Brains

 

…  and check out  what’s up for grabs peeps

And here’s a few words from our Liz

At Buttons for Brains we specialise in card making kits as well as an increasing range of craft accessories. We chose to focus on card making kits because they allow crafters to try out different ranges of products without the need to buy complete packs of everything needed to create a handmade card. The card making kits all contain top quality materials and are suitable for beginners and experienced crafters alike. They also make great gifts. Beautifully packaged the items are despatched quickly and delivered first class.

We know crafters want access to the very latest products and so will be adding new kits and supplies regularly so remember to visit often or even better, sign up for our Newsletter.

Hugest of thanks for a fabulous prize  chick xxx :)

And now without further ado, lets see what our fabulous team have done…
