New it!

Hello, hello, hellooooooo! Lisa Sparkle here with this fortnight's challenge! Firstly I have to say thank you for all of your gorgeous pears and pairs, you are a talented bunch. We'll be back next week to announce the winner.

We have another new design team member to announce, Caroline of Craft Mix
Caroline creates beautiful work, she mainly enjoys altering things. Do pop over to her blog and have a browse at her gorgeous work, you'll see her first design team piece below.

So, you'll be wanting to know the new challenge theme then.....well it's circles. Show us some circles on your projects. Don't forget that it doesn't have to be a card, we love to see lots of interesting projects, and you can enter more than once as long as your entries are different types of projects.

As ever, there's a £10 voucher to spend at up for grabs for our winner!

Now, how's about some fabulous inspiration from our fabulous Design Team?
