The Flower Challenge #41 Reminder

Welcome back to The Flower Challenge. It's the midway point in our current challenge and here is a reminder. This month our theme is 'Add Leaves'




It would be great if you could add our cue card above when entering our challenge. Of course most of all......have fun !


This month we would like to see you add some 'Leaves' to your cards. If in doubt, as always see our DT's examples below for guidance.

Please don't forget to USE YOUR FLORALS as always and as the MAIN feature on your card. NOT animals or insects as we keep seeing, please note we are a FLOWER challenge ;)
ONLY SIX other challenges allowed as well as our own. Please also DON'T  just use bought flowers, see rules above.
Also please take a few minutes to read our rules in the tab above as you may lose out on winning a prize sometimes too.


Our Guest Designer this month is Galina Filippenko, our previous winner from last August. Do try and visit her blog as you are in for a treat if you haven't already. See her GD card in our last post too.

And here is some more wonderful inspiration from our design team.

Prize Winner and Picks for the Month of January 2020

Now comes the hardest part of the Challenge. 

We decided we didn't want to use the Random Picker as it was felt
    that cards should be chosen for a number of reasons not
 'luck of the draw'.

          When we look at the cards entered we are each drawn to different styles,
          techniques and designs. So all the design team have input, each has been
 asked to pick out three cards that stand out to them and why.

         The cards getting the most votes will then be posted on our Winners post
          and the other cards will be listed under Top Pick and Honourable Mention.

         We have a  PRIZE to give away to our lucky winner this time too, 
the fabulous Alex Syberia has agreed to give
 our winner TWO of her amazing digital images.
 Look HERE to see all of her lovely digital stamps.


Please can the Winner email us with your full name and address
 so we can give you details of how to claim your prize.
Our email address is below.
