Here is Elaine's gorgeous creation which includes stamping, heat embossing and watercolouring, or you could choose the tile effect or the colours as your inspiration...



We can't wait to see where this takes you, and why not pop over to Elaine's blog and send her some happy wishes on her special day!

Challenge #447 - Christmas In July

 Hey LIMettes!

First of all we want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone that rose up to the monogram challenge. You should be really proud of yourselves and you all deserve a clap and pat on the back! It wasn't an easy challenge but it was a delight to see what you came up with.

So, we're being much kinder in this latest challenge because it's that good old 'Christmas In July' theme. Yes, it's time to make a start on those festive cards.

Challenge #446 - OLC Monogram

 Hey LIMettes!


We're back with our latest challenge which may make you get your thinking cap on. It's ONE LAYER CARD time and we'd love to see a monogram on your cards.


Here's a couple of definitions. 

Monogram
1. a motif of two or more interwoven letters, typically a person's initials, used to identify a personal possession or as a logo
2. a design consisting of two or more alphabetic letters combined or interlaced, commonly one's initials

Now, we're not that cruel.... we will be happy for two or more letters and they do not necessarily have to be intertwined. So hopefully that will make it easier for you all.

**********************************************************

To be eligible for showCASe and PRIZE WINNER choices you will need to carefully follow the guidance on our GLOSSARY OF TERMS and our HOW TO PLAY pages.Your design should feature lots of clean / white / blank / non patterned / non textured space.

We have a fabulous Guest Designer joining us for this challenge, the immensely talented Joanne James, who was our overall April winner.  Thanks so much for joining us, Joanne.  

Here's her super creation (pssst! and she has another gorgeous creation on her blog so please pop over for a visit!)...
