Ooh La La

First & most importantly this week, we're saying a sad goodbye to some of our team, Carrie, CherylAnn, Claire, Lorraine & Val are leaving Sweet Stampin'.  We shall miss them all, please go and leave them some little bits of luurve on their blogs for all the amazing inspiration they have given.  We hope they'll all come back & be guest designers at some point too, you don't escape that easily girls lol!

On a happier note, that means we have some delicious new sweeties to introduce you to, look out for the announcement on Wednesday!  Also look out for something else coming on Wednesday, it's worth popping back for....

So this week's challenge is chosen by the quiet shy retiring Tracey (well we thought she was!) & she wants to see some Ooh la la on your card.  Something French, or something a bit cheeky or saucy but remember folks, this is a family show!!

This week we are sponsored by Quixotic Paperie who are offering a £10 voucher to spend in the shop


& our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen who's also offering & £10 spending spree (last chance this week to get your hands on it.)....

Woohooo!!!  Both fabulous shops with a huge selection of goodies that are well worth a visit!  In fact I've been across to both this week & well....erm... just don't tell hubby will you lol!  Thanks for your sponsorship guys, we really appreciate it!!

Anyway here's the inspiration from our sweeties this week:

Guest Designer Mary J It's Mary's last week with us this week, thanks so much hon, it's been wonderful having you with us!


Sadly Lorraine is having major computer problems & couldn't participate.  Hope you're sorted soon hon!

Tracey - who enjoyed herself so much, she made 2!

No Zoe this week, normal service resumes once she's out from under her washing & ironing pile lol!!!

I just want to say a little thank you to those people who take the time to leave comments here for us, so appreciated.

Now let's see your cards with a little bit of ooh, a little bit of aaah & a whole lot of Ooh La La!!!!

Sketch OR Spots, Stripes & Sparkle

Good Morning All,

I'm so pleased to be writing this, after Blogger's problems over the past couple of days we were despairing of getting this post out to you!  Anyway thankfully it all seems to be back to normal so....On with the show!!

Thanks to all of you who've entered our DT call, we'll be e.mailing the chosen few by Friday next week.

This week we have a fabulous sketch for you BUT we've noticed that not all of you are sketch fans so we thought we'd be super sweet to you & give you an alternative too.  Here's the sketch:

Alternatively you can make a card using Spots, Stripes & Sparkle, the choice is yours & of course if you're feeling super creative, you can combine them...

This week we're sponsored by Fairydust Crafts which is the place to find Lexi's digital images & a vast array of other goodies from Promarkers to Ribbons & Flowers.  They are offering 5 digi images of your choice to the winner!

Fairy Dust Crafts

Our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen

who's offering a £10 gift voucher to be spent in the shop & with such a fab collection of goodies on sale that won't be hard!

Here's the DT inspiration for you:

May's wonderful Guest Designer - Mary J

You'll notice here that our lovely Vicky is missing.  Unfortunately Vicky's having some personal issues right now & has had to leave the DT.  Vicky love, we are missing you and your beautiful cards so much.  You've been a super DT sweetie and we wish you all the very best hon, take care of your self.

So come on Sweet Stampers are you up for the 'S' challenge? Sketch, Spots, Stripes and Sparkle!!  Can't wait to see your creations.
