Challenge #362 - Purples

Hey LIMettes! 

Happy New Year! 

We hope you've had a fun-filled festive time and are now raring to go with a little creativity for our first challenge of 2018! 

It's an easy COLOUR one to get you started and we're changing the challenge to a 2-Weekly format for this year. We hope you'll enjoy the added bonus of extra time to submit your entries; you might even decide to play along more than once! 

In addition to the traditional monthly sponsor prize, we'll also be offering a mystery prize for January, as a little sweetener to ease you into our 2-weekly challenges. The winning entry will be selected randomly and announced along with our monthly winner early next month. Please remember to  carefully follow our Clean and Simple Guidelines and 'How to Play' rules (see further down this post) to ensure your entry is eligible for any showCASes / prizes.

We're also introducing a brand new sponsor for 2018; Skull and Cross Buns has agreed to provide a prize for our January winner and you'll find their website HERE. If you'd like to see some of their products in action, why not visit Design Team member, Anita, who has recently joined their DT. 

Ok let's get down to announcing the challenge and here's the cue card! We are joined by Wei from Handmade Cards By Weiwinner of our November challenges, who'll be our Guest Designer today ... do hop along and visit Wei's blog to check out her fantastic designs and CAS creations. You won't be disappointed.

... and here's what Wei and the design team have created to inspire you; if you get the chance there could be some bonus cards on their personal blogs too!
