Colours of Spring / Easter

Hello everyone, it's Lisa O here and it's my turn to set the new challenge for you this time but before I do we are absolutely delighted to welcome a brand new member to the Design Team and it's someone I'm sure many of you will already know. The very talented Kim Reygate has agreed to join our happy band and we are all very excited to be working with her. Welcome Kim.

Thank you for all your gorgeous texture projects . We really enjoyed looking at them and don't forget to check back next Friday when Neil will be announcing the Winners.

Now onto the new challenge. Spring is my absolute favourite time of year. It's so full of promise after the dark Winter months and I can feel my spirits rising so this time we would like you to use the COLOURS OF SPRING. We are approaching Mothers Day and Easter so there are plenty of opportunities to use those beautiful soft colours.

As always there is a £10 Stampman Voucher for the winner along with the Blinkies for the Runners Up and all the challenge rules can be found on the sidebar.
Now it's over to our talented DT who have created some wonderful projects to inspire you.
