Morning, Helene here to guide you through this week's challenge. But first of all:

We are thrilled to announce that we have a new Design Team member and hope you will join us in giving a big welcome to Kevin. Many of you will know Kevin and I am sure he is going to fit into the team a treat and we are so happy to have him on board.

He made a grand start and the whole design team has made fantastic projects for this week's theme which is All sentimental. Use a sentiment on your project, as a focal point or as a catching part of your creation. We have two sponsors this week:

For years now, we develop all our products with much care and quality.

All to enable the consumer to make beautiful cards, scrapbooks and other projects and enjoy this wonderful hobby. We produce a wide range of products which represent a complete concept of paper crafts. There are different lines of stamps and dies with matching papers and materials to decorate your card or scrap.
