Challenge #45 - "Shaped Cards"

Good Morning Everyone, I do hope that you are enjoying this gorgeous weather weve been experiencing over the last few days, I certainly have and Im keeping my fingers crossed it stays that way till after August 18th as my eldest grandson will be getting married on that day. Anyway you might wonder why Im standing in for Donna, well unfortunately both she and Alan her husband are really not at all well and she wants to take a bit of time out to devote it to not only recovering herself but also to nurse her husband back to full health again. I want to wish them both from "ALL" of us a very speedy recovery and I will strive do my best for you Donna, and so I hope you will forgive any mistakes I might make.
But firstly I must tell you that we are loosing our very talented Laine from our Design Team, as she has decided to spread her wings and we are so going to miss her, so Laine very good luck for your future in everything you do.
And now before I show and tell you what the girls have been upto I want to tell you who won last weeks "Girly Card" Challenge and the £10. Voucher from
 The Ribbon Reel, and that lucky person chosen by random org is:-
