Now let's see the inspiration for the challenge...


Scatty Jan hmmmm something beginning F had to be flowers for me. My friend is celebrating her 70th birthday so I wanted to make something a little special. I chose the lovely lantern template from The Lavender Tea collection. It looks quite red in the photo's but its a really deep pink in real life.  I wanted to match the flowers in so I decorated using Lemonade Fizz collection, I think they work perfectly together. All that was added to finish were some pearls, a few fern dies and a battery operated candle.....
Lots more photos and info on my blog xx

Tracy - Well for this challenge I decided to do a birthday card for my nephew so I picked a precoloured image from Winston Bear Collection holding a cake..."Food". Again lots of layering as I find fussy cutting a joy and I inked the edges to make images "pop" out
Katrina - Well, they're so pretty (and apparently all the rage at the moment), so it had to be F for Flamingo. The digi stamp is from the Winnie in Wonderland CD and I've coloured it in with pink and purple sparkle pens. The gorgeous backing paper is from the same CD and for the greeting I used one of the stamps from the Daisydays set.
Anita - Hi everyone so for my F'S I used Flowers, Frame, Fancy, Frugal i used a selection of papers from Rose Budd collection which has oodles of papers on, my sentiment qoute from the work and play 10 collection - country life i had fun this week.
Claire C What a fun challenge! My 'F' is frosty and I've used lots of bits and bobs from the gorgeous ' Octavia Frosted Winter' collection which you can find here as a CD or here as a download. I always make my 0wn jar of 'frost' for wintery cards by mixing up different grades of glitter, mica flakes and anything else in my craft stash that looks a bit frosty.
Michelle Wow all as I could think of for something beginning with F was yummy food lol. So I used The VIP XXL Starfish and Sandcastle Collection because it had so many yummy foods to use. I have made a bendy Card and I have only used things from the collection to decorate it hope you all like it.
Bev here with a bright and vibrant card using one sheet (yes you heard right) of the flower stacks from one of the older collections, Back to Nature. the sentiment used is from Magic Garden....
Anjie - Now I really pushed the boat out with this one as on my card I have a Flamingo, some Feathers, some Flowers and some Foliage! Do you think that's enough F's? To make this card I have used the lush Tropical Paradise Flamingo stamp set. The Flamingo you can get as a digi download on it's own HERE. I needed to add some Foliage in there so decided to use the leaf from the Lemonade Fizz stamp set. Lots more info on my blog.
