I had an idea and I thought I would share.

 I started my blog, Colour and Sparkle, 18 months ago and it still feels so new. I cant 
believe that this next step is happening. 

 I had an idea, it was to start a blog where the challenges are
 all about flower/florals.  
I then approached a few people, people I knew shared my love for using 
flower/floral stamps, digital images, stencils & dies.

 I asked if they would like to join me in the adventure of starting a Flower Challenge.
 I am so amazed that everyone I approached said yes to either being on the
 Design Team or being future Guest Designers. 

I had to stop asking, we had reached top numbers before I  knew it.

 I am so honoured to say we are starting this challenge
 with 9 members in the Design Team.

We have just launched the The Flower Challenge blog. 
 Our first monthly challenge will begin on October the 4th.
  The Design Team that has come together  share a wonderful wide range of styles.
The blog is still having a few little tweaks so everything isn't live yet but
the blog itself is there ready to go.

  We hope you'll come by again on October 4th
 to see the first challenge and join us in all the fun.

I cant wait to see you all there.

Hi Aileen. Thanks for coming over to my blog and letting me know about my link error. The link should actually bring you to an "about me" page where you will find a link to my blog (best i could do...). I can't go to your blog either from the comment you left in wordpress so it must be a google/wordpress problem? Anyway, can't wait for your flower challenges!

Congratulations on this new venture, Aileen...and I'm not surprised you drew such a significant number of applicants! Excited to see who your designers are! I'm not particularly talented with flowers, but I'll do my best to support your challenge when I can. Guess this means I *need* to invite more flower images into my collection *grin*
