Well I haven't blogged for a few days but lots to show and tell tonight.

First off all WOYWW sorry, I didn't manage to join in last week. There are a few tags that are drying, a little bird house I am preparing for a workshop, dabbers and stapler and ribbon.

The white one has gesso on the next two have Viva Terra on, this is a great paste for making textured backgrounds. There are several colours in the range, when the paste dries it can be painted over with acrylic paint, so it doesn't really matter what colour you use.

The tag to the left hand side of this picture has already been painted with acrylic paint, it is now ready for embellies. If you would like to join in WOYWW take a picture of your worsk space blog it and then pop over to Julias blog to link it so we can all come over for a nosey.

We had a Sizzix delivery today of T!m's Alteration dies: Gadget Gears, Elegant Flourish,  Movers and Shapers Ornamental, Key Holes, the next delivery is due towards the end of next week with the rest of range.

Craft Den Studio is celebrating it's 2nd birthday this week. I does not seem like two years at all. It has really flown by and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have meet so some lovely people and made so many wonderful friends! Thank you ladies Craft Den would not be the same with out you all xxx

I have receive this gorgeous card from Sandra

it is such a pretty pink and the pin and flower embellishment finishes it of beautifully.

and this little box...

and in the little box...

this beautiful necklace made with Pardo clay. Thank you Sandra I love it!

My pictures do not show the true colours of the clay very well so I have taken a picture on black card

and on white to try and show the colours better.

I have received flowers from Jill, you know the one with no blog!!

and flowers from Dawn.

Tonight has kick started the celebrations and tomorrow we will have news of some Blog Candy.
