  3. Thank you so much for picking me as one of last week's Top 3! I love SSW so much because I sometimes get "crafters block" and can't decide what to put where on my card. Your sketches focus my mind and give me so much inspiration. The DT have come up with some lovely creatyions this week again!

    Hope you all have a great week

  11. Beautiful creations from the DT. I love how different everyone's looks using that same sketch. Thanks for the inspirations :D

  12. Brill creations. I just love them all.
    Arlana: great American theme and I love the stitching
    Judi: such cute image (I love sunflowers) and beautiful colouring
    Nancy: 3 stunners! Cool baseball brads(?) on the boy's card, cute teddy with fab flowers on the 2nd card and again I love the sunflower image with the cute bees.
    Jeannie: cute little mouse skating! The swirl at the bottom of the card is ace and lovely (quilled?) flowers.
    Linda: the same mouse image but such a different card! I really like the crispness of this card and the large pearl brads at the bottom are lush.
    Katie: perfect pink birthday card for a little girl. great use of glossy accents
    Sharon: cool American bear again, but I like the different interpretation. Fab embossed stars with buttons.
    Deanne: cool birthday card. Lush ribbon bow and I love the star buttons
    Jackie: Wow another 3 cards! modern take on a classic Christmas card for the first. The paper piecing on the robin is perfect. Fab use of the American bear on the second- I like the wire star! Cute teddy card for the third- lovely punched borders and beautifully coloured image.
    (hope I haven't missed anyone.)
