This challenge is sponsored by Uniko and we are thrilled about the prize: Uniko will donate a 15 £ voucher to one randomly drawn "twister" who uses glitter or shimmer in her/his project. Thank you so much Uniko  for this generous prize!

Our guest designer the next fortnight is the very talented Valentyna from her blog Flouristina. If you are not familiar with her work, do visit her blog -you'll be amazed by the artsy, creative CAS cards she makes!

We are honoured that for this challenge our Guest Designer is the very talented Hazel.

Hazel is so creative and her blog, Hazel Paper Designs, is a delight to visit. Pop on over there and you will be stunned by such fabulous CAS designs. We are so pleased that Hazel is joining us this week and next for this challenge.
