The Summer fun never ends at Fashionista!
Week 2
 is just beginning and we want to give you some more inspiration
from our incredibly talented
Guest Designers

Viv has been a 2 time top 5 winner
at Fashionista and we are very excited
to share her creation with you!
Please visit her blog and share some love with her!
‘I took up card making several years ago at the same time as I started to trace my family tree and combine my free time between these, playing bowls and following Liverpool FC! I have also ventured into the world of Artist Trading Cards, Mixed Media and Altered Art, all of which I enjoy.
I am lucky enough to have a very supportive husband and have made many wonderful friends through crafting. There are so many talented people out here in blogland providing inspiration and I feel part of one huge family!’

Becky was a top 5 winner in our
Wedding Anniversary Challenge
and has created a delightful
Summer Inspirational Card to share with you!

Please visit her blog and share some love with her!
Hi, I live on the North-East coast with my husband and our two gorgeous children. I work full time, and in what spare time I have I love colouring and making cards. I've always enjoyed making things, I used to love cross stitch, knitting and crochet when I was younger. I made our wedding invites in 2008 and the invites for my brothers wedding in 2009 and really enjoyed it. So late 2009 I decided to take it up. Around easter 2010 I found Tilda, then the gorgeous Hanglars followed along with Sarah Kay, Lili of the Valley and all of the others and now I have so many stamps I barely have homes for them all, and I'm ashamed to say quite a few of the ones I 'had to have' haven't even seen ink.
Thank you ladies for the inspiration
and for sharing your talent
with all of us this week!
Your cards are beautiful!!!

Every week of the challenge
we pick one creation to feature...
this week is
There were several this week that
jumped out and said feature me,
but this one was just so creative,
so dimentional and so summery!!!
