Challenge #269

We have a recipe for you this week that we think you will love!
We don't need to see a whole card full of them, remember to keep it simple, but we'd like a little evidence of them somewhere!
Here is the inspiration from our fab DT to get your creative juices flowing!
Remember there will be details of these cards plus maybe one or two others on the individual blogs of the team, so do check them out!
Again this week we are joined by a Guest Designer from amongst those who expressed an interest in joining our DT at the last call, so do give a warm welcome to 
Kay Wallace  

We hope you'll all have fun with this one and remember that white space!

We'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Easter

Sentiment ShowCASe Challenge 267

We had another week of fabulous entries making the ShowCASe choices another difficult one, but here are three beauties, we're sure you'll agree!
Thank you all for your stunning and superbly Clean and Simple entries!

 - White space doesn't have to be white as is perfectly demonstrated here by Claire.  The bold, crisp sentiment is so dramatic and the red accent is perfectly placed.

We were all completely wowed by Rema's design.  The pure simplicity really packs a punch and that coral shade just works with the black sentiment and uninterrupted white space.
Time Out DT 52
Anita has demonstrated some flawless stamping here.  A textured card base with a bold sentiment accented with flowers and leaves in beautiful colours - all superbly executed.
Ladies, please take the ShowCASe banner from the page at the top, which we hope you will pop onto your blogs with pride!
A little time remains to join in with this week's 'What's outside your window?' challenge, but you miss the deadline for that, a fresh challenge will begin tomorrow morning at 8 am GMT s join us then!

ShowCASe # 266

Another week and another fabulous 
this time from our fabulous 
This proved a popular choice of colour and our showcase reflects the wonderful work submitted for this challenge!
Without further ado here are the choices!
Love the creative use of the citrus colours.  The little fox is beautifully coloured and the background shading highlights him perfectly.
This is a perfect one layer card.  The birds are nicely coloured and are the main focal point for this CAS card!
Another perfect CAS card.  This beautifully designed card provides lots of interest, while still remaining fresh, clean and simple!

Three very different styles but all beautifully CAS and all full of zingy citrus shades!
Thank you so much ladies, do please take your badges from the page at the top which we hope you will pop onto your blogs with our congratulations!
There's just a little time left to join in with our Sentiment challenge and a new theme will begin tomorrow at 8am GMT!
SO be there!

Week 267 One Layer Sentiment

Hello Limettes it's time for our latest challenge and would you believe we 
are back round to that popular ONE LAYER challenge week!

We'd like you to make your Sentiment the main focus of your card
for this one and please remember that yummy white space and 
most important - no additional layers, which is tricky!

So before we show you the DT creations for this week we have a Guest Designer for you, Irina of Scrapbooking Blog who popped her name in the hat as a potential Design Team member a few weeks ago. Sadly we couldn't ask everyone; we were completely overwhelmed by the numbers of willing and talented entrants so we've invited Irina along to guest design for us this week. 

... and here's what the rest of us have created plus if 
you pop across to our personal blogs you might find a couple
more goodies to inspire you along with details of the products
and techniques used on our cards.

We hope you like what you see and feel inspired to delve into your stash
and create some sentiment-focused creations for our gallery.

ShowCASe #265

Morning friends it's time for the latest ShowCASe line-up
at Less is More following our wire challenge!

You LIMettes are AWESOME - have we told you that?
Simply too many stunning designs for us to choose just 3!
You all certainly bent those wires to perfection or took the challenge
completely off the wall; knocking us sideways with your talents!

So here we go in order of entry 

 Such a clever use of wire coupled with the cute robot images makes for a fresh, fun and funky card. Gorgeously CAS with all the surrounding white space.

 The vibrant and striking background has been beautifully blended to provide the perfect backdrop setting for the hand drawn birds and wires. It has fabulously clean crisp edges to the colour block too.

Such a fantastic, clever and unique card. The curved zip with the CAS zipper 
charm embellishment and (very realistic) knit embossing folder are so very trendy.

Congratulations Ladies and please collect a ShowCASe badge from the tab at the top of the blog. We hope you'll display it proudly on your personal blogs with our thanks.

We're sure you'll agree these are a fantastic set of textured beauties and you'll stop by and congratulate them too. 

There's still time to enter our 'Citrus' colour challenge which ends at 10pm GMT this evening and we'll be announcing our next challenge tomorrow at 8am GMT so hope you'll join us then!
