Time to say good-bye

Good morning, Svenja here!

First of all a big thank you to everyone who let themselves be inspired by last week's busy bee-challenge. Wasn't the blog bustling with life and springyness? I love how everything is finally turned to green outside.

But, well, we're going for something completely different this week because sometimes it just is

Time to say good-bye

Show us your ideas for farewell-cards. Could be retirement or leaving cards but sympathy cards are just as welcome. We all sadly need them from time to time and inspiration in the field is very welcome. 
To get you started just have a look at the Design Team's creative ideas:

Busy Bees

Thanks for sharing your takes on our elemental dare last week, we always love to see what you're making!

Busy Bees

It's Enfys here setting this week's challenge: use anything related to bees on your project - it could be a honey pot, a hive, or just a busy little bee buzzing around some flowers.

The DT have indeed been busy bees, here's their take on the theme.

May Elemental; Inspiration


Hello, Happy First Friday of the Month!
Thank you so much for joining in with Miri's fun Weather challenge, it was good to see all those weather-related ideas for cards.

It's Ruth here today hosting this challenge and as its the First Friday of the Month (and it's May already - how did that happen?!), it's an Elemental Inspiration Picture which we hope will inspire your crafting this week.  I really enjoyed picking these different elements and pulling them together!

Just choose a minimum of THREE elements from the mood board to use when you make your card.

 
Suggestions: stars, flowers or petals, square layout, hand drawn patterns, twigs, sunset, handwriting, monogram, large letters, fur, woodgrain ..... lots of inspiration!

Here's what the DT made to inspire you:

Let's talk about the weather


Thank you for all the beautiful blue cards you shared with us last week!
It’s Miri here and I suggest a little bit of small talk on this lovely Friday:

Let’s talk about the weather!
Use anything weather-related on your card: clouds, sun (rays), 
rain (drops), snow etc.

And maybe you can tell us about the actual weather outside your craft room. Can you already see, feel and smell spring?

Here’s some wonderful inspiration from the Design Team:

Feeling blue...

...but in a very good way!

Hi everyone!

It's Nat here, back from a little creative break while my crafting mojo decided to go on holiday and incidentally just back from my own little holiday in Cornwall visiting family. :)

Before I share the details of this week's dare, I wanted to just thank everyone who has been playing along with the design team and creating fab creations in response to our dares!

I've brought a bit of Cornish inspiration back with me for this week's challenge.

Blue is always a colour I associate with Cornwall - the iconic blue stripes of Cornishware pottery, the gorgeous indigo fabric prints (especially in Seasalt - yep, I bought another shopper bag...), and just the general weathered blues on boats and buildings all about.

There's lots to love about that colour so this week I'd like you to share projects showcasing shades of blue!

To get you started, here are some lovely card ideas from the design team – Pinterest also has some great examples of Cornish blue tones for added inspiration:

Animal Antics

Hello,  Ruth here!
 
Thank you to those who joined in with last week's Elemental Inspiration challenge.
  This is my first time hosting a challenge and I hope you'll join me and the so talented Design Team in creating a project for the theme for this week:

Animal Antics


Animals can be so funny and as long as your project features one then get it linked up below so we can come and visit you!  Make it the focal point or as an embellishment or accent - just as long as your creation features one then you're good to go!

Here is some inspiration from the team:
