Strawberries Dipped in Chocolate - Week 6

Welcome to week six everybody! We hope you had a fabulous time choosing which sketch to use and an even better time creating your cards last week. We loved looking at every body's blogs and leaving comments. What an amazing bunch of people you are! All of your cards are fab! It was nice to see some old faces and new! The team had a tough decision making the top 5 choice and Donna and myself were finding it hard to pick some winners too!

I have some sad news for you all this week. It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to some of our Design Team. We say a reluctant goodbye to Ida, Jen and Poppet this week. They will be missed greatly and I hope that they visit us and join us in a challenge or two. We wish them well and I'm sure you will all see them around in Blog Land and on the Design Teams that they are still part of! Good Luck ladies and THANK YOU so much for your fabulous creations these past five/six weeks and your friendships!

However, on a lighter note, I'd like to introduce to you, two new members who will be joining us as of next week! They are Nancy (our guest designer from 26th June and 3rd July) and Sheila (our first challenge winner). I hope you will welcome them aboard this fine Stampin' ship to start their new journey on our Design Team!

This weeks challenge we have a little inspiration for you. As the title suggests we have a colour combo for you of RED AND BROWN This week we would like you to take some inspiration from the two photos below. I had great fun with the strawberries, and guess what, they tasted delicious after I'd taken the photo! They were from the garden and I couldn't resist! The Tulip photo is from our wonderful Teamie Nicola. So I hope using the title and the colours below you find some real inspiration.
