Good Sunday Morning Everyone,
The theme of this weeks Challenge was to make an
Aperture card, you could use any style and method you liked.
As I am a Stampin Up Demonstrator I am part of a lovely
Facebook Group called
Stampin' For all Community Group
They are an amazing group of people. Any of you on FB are welcome to join the group any time.
I am an administrator for this group too and I extended our Blog
Challenge to the Group too, so we have even more inspiration this week, their cards are all amazing.
To the ladies and Gent of the Stampin' For All group,
Welcome to my blog, we have been doing a Monday
Sketch Challenge for about two years now and sharing our
Cards on a Sunday, it is a pleasure having you join us this week.
You are most welcome to come back and join us anytime you like,
Feel free to take part in our weekly challenge too.
I am blessed with an absolutely amazing group of friends over
Here on my blog, we refer to the blog as our 'Cafe', as it's a place we all meet up every day to share all things craft and literally anything else, we even have a 'Soap Box' for those days when something has really ticked you off!
So without further delay I will share all of your amazing cards,
The regular blog ones are first followed by our lovely guests.
I look forward to reading your comments.

Gorgeous, I love the background Val, the three flowers and butterfly work perfectly.
