Romantic inspiration

Morning everyone, we have some mid month inspiration for you following our Romance theme selected by Hilary, but if romance is not for you then there is always the Anything Goes option, we love to see them all.

Judging by the lovely entries so far lots of you have been in romantic mode this month and we hope you still have some creations to share for the chance of winning one of the super prizes from AALL and Create. You have until Wednesday 28th February to link up to three entries.

And a reminder that we are always on the look out for Guest Designers, if you are a seasoned stamper using traditional stamps (not digis) please add GDT against your entry.

Starting with this months featured DT Hilary and Guest Designer Helen, here are the romantic inspired creations the design Team have come up with.......

February challenge

Welcome to our February challenge where our theme has been chosen by Hilary and is very appropriate with Valentines Day falling this month....
💕 Romance 💕
(or Anything Goes as an option)

Please remember that there must be at least one stamped element on the front of entires to be eligible. We are always on the look out for stamping Guest Designers, those interested in being considered please add GD when entering.

We have three prizes from AALL and Create, an A5 stamp set, a DL stamp and a stencil with an A7 stamp.


Here's a little bit about Hilary who has chosen our theme: My name is Hilary and I have been on the WLS DT since Nov 2021. I live in a small market town in Suffolk, England and started making cards seriously after I retired from the NHS. I set up my blog in 2017 and quickly found this wonderful online community. 

I chose romance for this months theme because it is February and I couldn’t think of anything else! I am not a great one for making romantic cards, but the one thing I have found about being on this DT, is that it pushes me out of my comfort zone and my cards this month are a good example of that. Thanks to everyone who takes part in our challenge, you spur us on and inspire us. Please interpret the romance theme in any way you like and if you really can’t think of anything, the anything goes option can still apply.

We have lots of romantic inspiration to share including our Guest Designer Helen who we are pleased to welcome for the next two months....
