Thanks for joining us in the coffee shop last week. It was mouth-watering to see your filled coffee cups and sweet treats on your cards. This week is Guest Designer Dianne's last week with us and we'd like to say a big THANK YOU to her for sharing some amazing cards over the last few weeks. The good news is that she's promised to come back and play with us again soon, so we all have a return visit to look forward to.
This week we’ll celebrate love.
Prince William married his Kate 5 years ago on April 29th 2011. That’s reason enough to make wedding/anniversary
cards for all the lovely couples we know personally.
Or your partner ;-).
Has the wedding season already started in your part of the world? Are you invited to a wedding or anniversary this year?
Have a look at the Design Team’s cards and feel all the love that’s in the air.
Have fun crafting!
Lots of love from us XOX

Thank you for joining in with Sharon's 'Back to Basics' dare last week if you had a go. This week it's Leo with you to give you a fresh new topic to spark off your creativity!
This week I'd like you to take inspiration from your favourite cafe or coffee hang out. It could be something that's served, muffins, pastries, doughnuts, cookies, tea, coffee etc. Or it could be the colours or a motif or the packaging. Got your idea yet? Here's the design teams cards to give you more ideas. Don't forget to pop back in and share what you've made. Have fun!

Hi everyone, it's Sharon here with this week's dare, but first, thanks to everyone that joined in with Lythan's great challenge last week. It was lovely to see so many fabulous oriental creations.
This week I want us to go
Back to Basics
I want you to use primary colours only - if you want to add other colours, then you need to mix them yourselves from the primary's!
To give you some inspiration, here are some ideas from the design team:

Lythan here today.
Thanks to all of you who played along with our April Elemental Inspiration
Its a different kind of challenge this time round as today is the birthday of Siddhārtha Gautama, also known as the Buddha, the founder of Buddhism.
So we would like to see an oriental theme to your card - sakura blossom, lanterns, temples, Nepalese prayer flags...
Here are the team's cards to get your mojo going!

Hello fellow Crafters. It's Dawn here with this weeks challenge.
A big thank you to everyone that took part in last weeks challenge to celebrate Spring.
As its the first Friday of the month its time for a
Elemental Inspiration challenge.
Elemental Inspiration challenge.
I have chosen this Spring/Easter picture to fire up your creativity. I thought it would cheer us all up as the Easter weekend weather was rather wild, wet and windy.
Remember you need to choose at least 3 elements from the picture and I think there are a few in this image!
For example birds, eggs, rabbits, bird house, flowers.......
Lets see what the Design Team came up with.
Colours, cake stand, ribbon, ric rac, stripes.
pastel colours, eggs, flowers
text translates: once you know what you want you've got to make sure that you get there
pink stripes, the birdhouse, the bird and flowers.
Pink stripes, silver ("happy" from the bowls), yellow flowers, rabbit, presents, colour palette
