Recipe Week 282

We promised you a new member for our design team, and here she is!

Please give a really warm welcome to Esther whom we are sure is well known to you already because of her tireless visits to your blogs and her wonderfully supportive comments.
Her creations are wonderful and we are sure that her work alongside the rest of the team will give you great inspiration. We are truly delighted to have her join us!
The challenge for her first week is to 
There are many ways that using a stencil can be part of your design and the DT this week has come up with some terrific examples. Even if you don't possess any stencils you can use the negative of a die cut to create one.

of whatever colour it may be!

We hope that these beautiful designs will have sparked some creative ideas for your cards and we can't wait to see them.

Have fun!
