Challenge 189 - Coffee and Cream

Good morning everybody

Wow - what fabulous creations we had for our challenge last week.  Thank you so much everybody.
I really hope that all the people affected by these dreadful storms are managing OK.  The pictures from the TV have been quite terrifying.

We are having a very calming theme this week


Think deep rich coffee, milky coffee and lovely soft creams.  Whatever your brew is.  Mine is a strong dark expresso!

Our sponsor this week is Delicious Doodles, and we have been given some fabulous images to play with, so I do hope you like what we have come up with.

This is what Teri Sherman has to say about her company

Delicious Doodles is a young company with myself,
Teri, as the Sole Trader/Designer.

I have doodled and sketched all of my life.
I started making greetings cards when my last child was born, and used my doodles on them as I couldn’t find what I wanted in the usual craft places.
I only started selling my images in the Autumn of 2009.

I design and hand/mouse-draw all of the images that are sold in the Delicious Doodles Shop. Some are cutsie animals, some are sketched flowers, there are a few men's images, fairies and also some 'darker' images featuring vampires, skulls and Gothic stuff, something for everyone!

Why not pop over and take a look.

The winner of this challenge will receive four images of their choice from Delicious Doodles.

Here is what our fabulous design team have come up with for our Coffee and Cream challenge.




We are looking forward to seeing what you all create this week
Have a great weekend

Challenge 188 - Christmas in June

Hi everybody

I hope you have had a good crafting week - it certainly has been the weather for it some of the time, although I know for those who are horse racing fans, they were hoping for great weather for Ascot, and  certainly some days were better than others.  It was wonderful to see on TV the huge reception the Queen and her guests got at Ascot each day as they drove down the race course in front of the grandstands, and then around the paddock in their carriages, and even more, how delighted the Queen was to get a winner in the racing on Friday when her horse absolutely romped home.

Now on to our challenge for this week.


Have you got your stamps packed away, or are you busily making cards each week so that it is not a mad rush at the end of the year?

We have two sponsors this week.

Firstly, we are sponsored this week by Crafty Emma, who has provided a lovely set of stamps as a prize.  Sadly Emma has decided to close her business, so this is the last time we will see her as a sponsor.  We wish Emma well for the future.

And, secondly, we are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts - our very own Shelley, who has very kindly provided a prize of of £10 voucher to spend in her store.

Below are some fabulous examples from our talented design team.
