Week 674 ๐ŸŒ…Anything Goes option of Scenic

Good Morning everyone, it's Lynn here with you this week and for the new challenge theme I have chosen "anything goes, with the option of Scenic". So, you are welcome to enter any of your makes but it would be nice if some of you could incorporate a scene into them please.

We aim to comment on all entires at least once, usually more…but not all DT’s have access to third party hosts such as as Pinterest, Splitcoast, Flickr and Facebook so will be unable to leave a comment. However, as long as those entries are eligible for the theme they will still be included in draws and Top 5 picks.

This week our prizes are this lovely stamp ...


and 3 images from Ruth Hamilton Design


Ruth Hamilton Design: I have enjoyed crafting all my life and have been involved in the craft industry for several years. I started drawing images to use on cards for my own use and then went on to design some stamps for a well known craft company.I am an avid lover of nature so most of my drawings are of flowers, birds and animals. Even when I can’t travel I love spending time in the garden, growing plants and looking after them. I hope you enjoy colouring my digi images, I have several YouTube videos here.

Here's the inspiration from the Design Team, including this week Ruth Hamilton as GDT.

Using the new Muscari image

I look forward to seeing your makes and I will be back next Friday with the winners and top 5 picks.
