Where has this week gone?

Good morning all. A bit of a grey Sunday morning here in Sheffield, very different to yesterday, it was bright sunny and very warm. Well that is another week gone, but where has it gone? We are nearly in the middle of June already, can you believe that, half way through the year, in a blink of the eye.

'Shoes' is the theme for the Craft Den June ATC challenge, we had some beautiful flower entries
for May 'Flowers' can't wait to see what you all come up with for June.
I haven't made mine yet, but hope to remedy that later. 
Don't forget please send a SAE with your ATC if you want us to post your swaps out to you. We will of course save them for next time you are in the studio if you are collecting them.

Pearls & Lace is the theme this week over on our challenge blog Anything Goes and Pink & Cream are the colours. Pop over and take a look at what our very talented and creative design team have made, they have come up with some fabulous ideas and made some absolutely gorgeous cards, scrapbook pages, tag and box go on pop over you won't be disappointed and it might just inspire you to join us.

So if you were wondering what to do this grey Sunday, why not make a Shoe ATC or something with pearls and lace, or why not make both? Don't forget Anything Goes, so you could make two ATC's

Here is a card I made for Kerry who is getting married next weekend. I have got several wedding stamps, and have been asked to make lots of wedding and anniversary cards lately so I have been digging them all out and having a rummage. I had forgotten I had a lot of them! but don't tell BH, as he is always saying 'you've got that much stuff, especially 'Billy Stampers' that is what he calls rubber stamps lol

The card is a very pale pink 8x8, decorated with yummy pearlescent papers 

Prima flowers and small pearl flourish, heart shaped doily, heart pins.
Martha Stewart Branch and Frond punch and punch around the page set (PATP) all available from

Kerry, I hope you and Martin have a wonderful time and a magical day just like you have planned.

Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

What ever you are doing to day make sure you find time to craft and ENJOY!
