Week 476/477 - Flowers all over

Hi, here's Mervi to host you the next two weeks - we will be running three two weeks challenges over the busy holiday period to give you more time to join in and also give the DT a little rest.

It's the most blooming time of the year! Welcome to join in our summer challenge, my theme is

 "Flowers all over"

 Our prize will be drawn by random at 27th July from qualified entries, and it comes from:
"My name is Suha and I have created Swedish House Crafts in the second part of 2016. It is a little Swedish online shop with lots of enthusiasm for crafting in a different style, dare to be different. Visit SHC and learn more. I have been professionally crafting since 2008, I gave colouring classes (with Promarkers) in Sweden, had exhibition in 2014, and used to make cards and mixed media mainly. I have a master degree in digital and visual design. Yes, 100% of graphics in the shop are my artwork including the logotype. Because I am not leaving my education, I am using it in my passion for paper crafting in the first place. Great combination as the future is full of plans and surprises, hold on and follow SHC on Facebook and blog, you'll find SHC everywhere."

Thank you Lou and here's the Design Team's fabulous samples:

Week 475 - In my Garden

A very good morning, Brenda here welcoming you to this weeks challenge and as I'm a floral sort of gal, the theme I have chosen is.....................

********In my Garden********

I want to see lots of lovely flowers and all those things you would find in the garden such as Birds and Bees and Butterflies and even some little critters hiding under the bushes.

And our prize compliments the theme, it's a beautiful floral stamp from Chocolate Baroque called Floral Harmony, I love their stamps but I might be a tad biased!
                          
Chocolate Baroque who are a small independent art and craft company, based in the historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North-East of England and is owned and run by Lesley Wharton. Our resident artist, Sue Page, works from her home in Hampshire where she is inspired, amongst other things, by the natural world, botanical art and early 20th century illustration.

We design our own range of natural rubber art stamps from Sue's hand drawn originals, complemented by typography from Lesley. The rubber stamps are made in house, by David, to our very exacting quality standards. And nothing gets past his eagle eye!

As always my team mates have been busy creating lots of inspiration to share with you...........
