If you haven't already there is still time to enter our Nutty Nutshells Challenge over at our Nutshells blog. We have a theme of creating a Thank you / Thankful card this time which has tied in perfectly for last weeks Thanksgiving celebrations. Myself and Colette we very Thankful to have been invited to our friend Gillian's house over weekend to celebrate Thanksgiving. Gillian Hails from California, and celebrated with her family and friends in Manchester with the BIGGEST turkey I have ever seen!
My card for the challenge is made with one of the Prizes up for grabs: Tea for Two stamp.

I have made the image into a little pocket to hold a couple of tea bags which I thought looked good with the theme of the card.

The challenge closes tomorrow night, so if you are quick you can still be in with a chance to win the prize below, just head over to our Nutshells blog where you can see some great examples from our DT.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

After a few weeks of camera woes, I have managed to take a few pic's of cards I have been making. I am really pleased at long last to have made a male card that I love and am certain I will create again! I always find them so difficult, especially for those men who have no hobbies or interests. The Greeting Farm 'My Guy Ian' set came to my rescue though and with the set being crammed full of sentiments to accompany the images, it covers all sorts of occasions.
Image and Sentiment : My Guy Ian
Papers: Trio of Trios Carousel Collection and scraps from stash
Embellishments: Prima E 'Pearls and Crystals Mornings' and Ribbon from stash
Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

This is my first blog post since I got back from my holiday and I seem to have forgotten the way of blogging... Eeeek!!! I am sure I will pick it up again soon enough though. I have returned to wonderful news that I wanted to share with everyone, as it's down to you that it has been achieved! Our very First Digital download set 'Pink Frosting' has been selling really well, and I am thrilled to announce that in our first month of selling this set we have raised £50.00 for Breast Cancer Awareness. Thank you to everyone who has helped us reach this amount by buying the set and we hope to continue along these lines.
