Hello long and faithful LIMettes, fellow bloggers and friends!
Yes that's right we are celebrating Birthday Number:
You have arrived at the right place but more on that in a moment!
There is so much to squeeze in to this post this morning that you'll
want to grab a comfy seat, a brew and maybe even a slice of cake!
We're delighted to be celebrating this birthday with you all and we are
overwhelmed and truly thankful each week by your loyalty,
continuous support and sheer brilliant talent in anything
we throw at you week after week.
Ok let's get to it!
... and we are celebrating in style today!
Behind the scenes we've been working away, these last few months
to give our old challenge blog a face lift with a
little nip and tuck here and there!
Sharon in particular has been doing a lot more of the blog
'nipping and tucking' than the rest of us with her
A* technical knowledge and talents!
Sharon you're fabulous and here's a massive
from all the team!
Onto this week's challenge and Birthday or not it's
the first week of a brand new month which means
Hey! What about a fancy little cue-card to announce the challenge!
We'd love you to include it in your post when you enter the challenge.
Here's a colour wheel example for you and we'd like to see
3 adjacent colours used on your cards
and there's more ... we've decided we'll be making our birthday
last all month this year! So we have 4 birthday weeks,
4 beautiful birthday sponsors, 4 talented Guest Designers &
4 generous birthday prizes to hand out to our wonderful LIMettes!
You don't have to play every week but we'd love it if you do!
We'll be announcing our sponsor / Guest Designer in our
Saturday mornings throughout February so we hope you'll
visit each week to find out who's in the hot seat!
All prize winners will be announced at the end of February's
4 challenges, in early March.
So who is on the Guest Designer Hot Spot and sponsoring
this week's challenge ......
Drum roll please for the wonderful Kylie of

adjacent colours to inspire you for this one...

Phew! We hope you managed to stay with us until the end!
Our rules and guidelines are still the same despite the new look so ...
Please keep your designs Clean and Simple with lots of 'white / blank space'
