ShowCASe #312 and January Winner!

Hi there LIMettes it's time for our weekly ShowCASe post and we are
also including details of our monthly winner here too.

It's never an easy job to select our favourites but we do love seeing 
all your stunning takes on the challenge in our gallery each week.

So here goes with our choices, in order of entry for our

Theme challenge #312 - New Beginnings
And this week we just had to stretch to four entries!

#4 Ankie

This is such a soft and pretty new baby card which shows that white space doesn't 
have to be white!  A lovely image and the star details complete a fab CAS design.

#14 Nonni

Springtime is a great theme for a new beginnings card and Nonni's design is gorgeous.
  The embossed background adds texture and the soft colours with pearl touches 
give the floral images impact.

#15 Viv (Daisy-Mae)

This is such a sweet card with lots of crisp white and pretty touches of pink and grey.  
The use of the frame and elements around it which add interest without being busy 
give this design real balance.  And the elephant is so cute :)

#39 Hannelie

White on white is always a good choice for CAS designs and this new baby card
 shows how much impact it can have!  The fab stork image with just the
 simple stripe of colour is just perfect.

Congratulations ladies and please help yourself to a ShowCASe badge
 from the page at the top of the blog with our thanks. 
We hope you'll display it proudly on your individual blogs.

We're sure you'll agree these are a wonderful selection and worthy of
our ShowCASe badge this week. 
Do pop along and congratulate them on their win.

It's also time for us to announce our lucky winner
for the month of January!
Our generous sponsor for the month was

Happy Little Stampers


Thank you to everyone who has taken part throughout January and we've 
thoroughly enjoyed seeing your beautiful cards in our gallery. 

It's always a tough decision to select just one winner 
but here goes with our choice for last month:

Elaine is a regular contributor to LIM - sometimes playing along several times in a 

week and her designs are always creative and eye catching.  It is always great to see 
what she comes up with in response to the weekly challenges!

 Congratulations, Elaine, and thanks so much for all your support.

We'd also like to offer you the opportunity to be our Guest Designer

for one of our future challenges so please contact us by email 
for details of how to claim your prize.

Please take a Prize Winner badge from the page at the top of the blog! 
We hope you'll display it with pride on your blog
with our congratulations and thanks.

We'll also be showCASing all our winners on our Facebook page 
so why not hop on over and give us a 'thumbs up'!

Here's the link you need to take you there.

As always there's still time to enter our current challenge
