I hope you have enjoyed the design team spotlighting your cards this week., it's been fun! I have used one of my favourite shades of blue, hope you like it.

Posted by Picasa

Spotlighting...... JACK!

Hehe she's gonna kill me lol! Jack is a very talented lady with a wide range of styles, you'll find her blog here. I've shamelessly borrowed some of her fab creations to show you, good job she knows me well!
First up a beautiful blue and green version of Soft Goth Night. I love the background Jack has done on the circle and all the swirls.

And how about this beauty? This one is Enchanting Gold - Love her hair on this one, blended beautifully. The papers all match the image, very nicely done Jack!

And finally Art Deco Bride/Flapper by Lilac Lemon. The nestie there is just perfect for this design. Love the pink and Black Jack has used here and the beads on the frame finish it perfectly :)

Welcome to the Spotlight!

Good Evening Peeps,

We have something a little bit different this evening. The Boss is on holiday and has left the Design Team in charge of the Crafts and Me Blog............ Whoops bad Idea, lol. Anyway, the design team have come up with the idea of choosing a card or two from the Challenge Blog and "SPOTLIGHTING" it on the Crafts and Me Blog. So watch this space folks, it could be you...........

This evening I have chosen to spotlight "Benedicte" and you can visit Benedicte's blog HERE to find out how she created this beautiful card.

Benedicte has produced this card using the Crafts and Me own range of stamps. This stamp is a Hannah Lynne stamp called Adriana and is of course available exclusively from Crafts and Me Shop and can be found HERE. I love the Hannah Lynn stamps, don't you. Now as I've said the Boss, Teresa, is away hopefully enjoying a well earned rest, well probably not just yet as it's her Son's wedding tomorrow. You can place orders on the website but due to Teresa being away orders will not be despatched until her return on the 31st August. This will give you plenty of time to browse and make a shopping list, lol.

Thanks for popping by and I'm sure Benedicte would appreicate you leving her some love.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to check back, just in case your next.....
