Great challenges Rach! I have had a look for the other DT samples but no luck so we will have to wait for the girls to upload them.

Hi lovelies, please can a gallery be created for the challenges?


I just loved the card challenge, I may have made extra but if the green ribbon card could be moved to the Challenge folder I would be most appreciative Wink

Thank you! Next challenge here I come Very Happy

Awww, you ladies are so kind.

I was having a play and used some striped washi tape to make another card for the striped challenge Laughing

I really should look at the other great challenges but really need to do the ironing but I do have another day Wink
