Challenge #434 - Theme - Fashion and /or Accessories

 Hey LIMettes! A Happy New Year to you all!


We're back with our first challenge of 2021 which, for those of you on total lockdown, will give you something to do. We suppose most people are sick of wearing sweat pants, PJs and casual clothes, so let's look forward to the time when we can all dress up again. 

Get out those smart suits 👔, pretty dresses 👗, costumes 👘👙, high heels 👠, gorgeous handbags 👜, bling jewelry 💍👸, or maybe even something snuggly and warm to keep out the cold on a lovely winter's walk, and start crafting. 

(snigger) We have visions of everyone in their craft spaces all dressed up for a fabulous night out now! Of course we meant get out your stamps and not for you to dress up 😂.

Now let's see what fantastic inspiration the design team have created for you and please do check out their personal blogs if you have the time as there could be a couple of bonus cards there!


The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that there is no sponsor for this challenge. We've taken the difficult decision to run the majority of the challenges this year without sponsorship because there are so many companies struggling to stay afloat at the moment. We thought it would be best to do our part to help them out by not requesting free product from them.  We hope you all understand this decision and will continue to support our little challenge throughout 2021. 

(We should however have a bumper sponsorship in February as it is our 10th birthday then!)

Enjoy the challenge, keep those entries CAS and have fun!

It's your choice from these two colour ways and we look forward to seeing which one you pick.
