DYSU #71 - Use A Flower

Welcome back for another round of fun! Did you guys have fun with the Circles challenge last week? It's time for another challenge and this week we're asking you to USE A FLOWER!

We have 3 amazing sponsors this week:

Inspired Stamps - $15 Store Credit

Digi Darla - Winners Choice of 5 Digis


The Greeting Farm - Winners Choice of 1 Clear Stamp Set

This week we have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us, please welcome Annette Connelly!
Here's a little about Annette:

'Hi, My name is Annette, I started card-making 7 years ago and quickly became addicted to stamping, both rubber and digis.  I love anything cute and cuddly. I usually lean towards pastel colours and sparkles, but I'm trying to be more adventurous!!!  My favourite craft tool is my Sizzx BigShot and I can't think what I ever did before I invested in that.  I'm so proud to have been asked to play along as a guest designer this week, and the flower theme is right up my street!  Those of you who visit my blog often will know that when I'm excited about a project, that I tend to get carried away, and will decorate the inside of my card too.  Well this time, I've gone one step further, and created a little handbag shaped gift box too in matching papers. I hope you like my project, and I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge.'

Here are our Designer's Creations this week:

After much deliberation, and taking into account the differing time zones for our International Design Team, we are going to close the DYSU challenge a day early, starting from this week. To enable our team to get round to the last entrants, and to give everybody a fair chance, we are now closing the challenge on Tuesdays at 5pm Mountain Time. This will enable the D.T. to get round to visiting all your creations, in good time, and leave you some love :-)

  • Our DT would love to leave comments on your blogs, please remove word verification to make this process easier (see right side bar for a how-to guide).
  • Only 3 entries per person per Challenge.
  • Make sure to link back to this challenge and mention it on your blog in your blog post.
  • No back linking.
  • Entries that do not fit the requirements will not be eligible for Winner or Top 3.
  • Mr. Linky closes at 5pm (MOUNTAIN TIME) on Tuesdays.
