Recipe of 1 and 2 and 3

Hello everyone, typical bank holiday weather here in the UK, rain and more rain, and even more is forecast. We just had to pay the price for the beautiful weather we had last week. The good thing is if it rains we can craft.  We didn't appear to inspire you to create an action/moving card last week, could be you were out gardening and enjoying the sun.  Maybe we'll try again in the future. We would like to thank those who kindly took up our challenge, showing different types of cards with movement. Julie has chosen the Top 3.

Congratulations ladies, please take your Top 3 badge from the Winner's Tab under the header.
