Week 33 ShowCASe

We have spent SO long looking through all the fabulous submissions which you supplied for us last week and choosing just a few was such a difficult task.
So many LIMettes submitted multiple times and many submitted posts with multiple cards on and we are SO grateful for all the wonderful support from so many of you for our attempt at 1000 cards in one week.
We have been encouraged to try for it again sometime... well we'll see... that was a lot of commenting to do... it makes commenting on a couple of hundred per week seem more like a walk in the park... yet that in itself takes us a long time!
One thing we have noticed is how much more comfortable lots of you seem with the genre and are sometimes producing one layer cards from choice!
Thanks go to you all, especially those who tried SO hard to help us try to achieve our goal, we'd love to name names, but would hate to miss anyone out, so HUGE thanks to YOU ALL.
Here are some which caught our eyes last week.

HUGE Thanks go to Loli for this last submission. She waited until moments before the challenge ended to post it so that it would be the last one for us.
It brought a lump to our collective throats.

Thanks to all of you!
