Some bits of news, and Bonfire!

 

 

Morning crafters, hope you are all well

Firstly a quick thank you to our fabulous DT for holding the fort for me, I kept sneaking a look and they had some fabulous cards to share… as I knew they would!

I will put all the comments that you left while I was away into a big draw and we’ll give away some A5 stamp sets as prizes so watch for the winners of that shortly

*

I have a reminder about this weekend’s exhibitions, we will be at the Happy Stampers Show (Port Sunlight) on Saturday and also the GNPE (Harrogate) on Saturday and Sunday so make sure you stop by our stand and say hello if you are attending either show

We’re sorry for any inconvenience but we will only be able to accept cash at Port Sunlight

*

If you’re wondering why a new challenge hasn’t been announced yet it’s because we are doing a big ‘Anything Goes’ challenge to coincide with World Card Making Day which is tomorrow, I’ll be back later today with the details and also our September winners. If you entered by email don’t panic, I just haven’t had chance to add your entries yet, they will be put on this morning and numbered for the prize draw

It feels like Autumn is definitely in the air for me after being in sunnier climes, so today I chose this card by Dena using our new Bonfire stamp, this image is sooo cute and takes me right back to my childhood!

Bonfire - Dena

Dena used a greeting from Set 29 Vintage Sentiments and the papers are from one of our most popular pads Country Gent

See you later for the October challenge!

  8. This is such a beautiful card here from Dena, I love it too, and it definitely also reminds me of my childhood as well, but also of when my youngest son were small, where he made small bonfires as soon as he got a chance, and I can´t count, how many times, he´s been cooking spagetti or roasted sausages in a bonfire for his own dinner, because it was soo much more fun, than eating inside ha ha ha.
    HAve a great week-end everyone, I wish I lived closer, so I could try one of your amazing shows myself.
