Happy Easter Monday to you all...we hope you have had a wonderful Easter weekend so far and that you haven't over indulged too much on the chocolate! Thank you to everyone who entered last weeks Easter/Spring was great to see so many entries using real chocolate on their projects as well as the colour chocolate too...there were some beautiful entries and if you pop back later you can see who has won the 3 digi images from last weeks sponsor Sunshine Stamps and to see who has made the Top 5!

This weeks challenge has been set by Victoria and the theme is


Home made flowers are what we would like to see on your creations this week and we don't want to see any shop bought flowers! There are many ways that handmade flowers can be can use ribbons, punches and diecuts and we have found that there are plenty of tutorials on the can find some 'You Tube' tuts here

The design team have provided plenty of inspiration this week and if you want to find out how they made their cards and flowers you can click on their names in the sidebar to go directly to their individual blogs...they would love for you to leave a comment on their blogs to show your appreciation for their work!
