Week #22 - Open Theme


Happy Sunday folks - my goodness, these Sunday's are coming round much quicker than ever right now, and now that the clocks have gone back (well, here in the UK they have!) and the nights are drawing in, can you think of a better way to spend a cold, dark evening than sitting in your favourite seat with a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows (or glass of mulled wine!!!) and getting those all-important Christmas cards sorted! No, neither can we. And with British Summertime officially over now, there's no excuse not to dig out those stamps and papers and crack on - don't get left behind!

This week we have decided to turn to YOU for inspiration. We have decided to have an Open Theme so throw that glitter around and just create with wild abandonment and make us go ga-ga with your ideas!

And we also have a very special treat for you this week. Our very own lovely Teri S. has very generously donated 3 of her fantastic digi images (winner's choice!!) to give away to one very lucky player. If you're a regular here, you cannot have failed to have drooled and dribbled over Teri's gorgeous cards each week, but may not have been aware that ALL her images are her very own hand-drawn, unique creations. And in case you're wondering where you can get your paws on them, I urge you to dash straight over to her website and bag yourself a bargain! (pssst.... you may recognise a few of Teri's dove's in the samples from the team this week ;o) )

And finally, I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to Lynda, our special guest who has helped us to prepare samples once more. We really appreciate all your help, and that from all of our really lovely and talented guests!

So, let's kick off this week with this absolutely stunning Advent Calendar created by Lynda. Feast your eyes on this:

She also created these with Teri's Dove image:
and here are the offerings from the rest of our fabulous team:




And now it's over to you. Don't forget to leave us your link and Good Luck with the draw for this fantastic prize!

Love from
The Team xxx
