Hello - Happy Easter

Sorry guys seem to have been ill and busy and not had time to blog. I am now back on track hopefully....

Not that I have crafted - but I have baked some cookies and I will add the recipe tomorrow...

I have (well DH did a lot of the work) just added a Quotes and Quips database to the site. You will now be able to add you favourite sentiment or quote to share with us all. I decided that it would be useful after we had a few threads on the forum for themed sentiments eg farm animals, or what can I do with a sheep die cut etc etc. So I really hope we can get some use out of them. I have started adding some that I have seen on the forum and other places, and will continue adding them. I will pick a name at random from those that add something in the next few weeks and send something from the shop.

Here is the list for you to search through and if you fancy adding some more you need to use this form, you will need to have registered on the forum - as I didn't want a load of spammers adding their wares for us all to see!

Clare and Sue have both launched challenges on the forum...firstly Clare is getting you to rifle in your drawers and find all that crafty stuff that you have not used in ages and make a card - or in fact anything crafty would be find.

She started us off with this card she has used accent beads - that were the in thing at one time! I got out my Friendly Plastic, and others have found all sorts of things at the back of that cupboard that were bought with good intentions at the time!



Sue has then started a new Create a Card (fondly known as CAC) challenge and this one is a recipe...it must contain the following:
0 BIG BLOOMS
1 FEATHER
2 BRADS
3 GEMS
4 PATTERNED PAPERS
and she started us all off with this card:


Andrea challenged us to tart up an egg box and the entries are all great you can see them all here...and Carol set us off on a Round and Round SB layout challenge - you can see all of the entries here

Melissa is going to get us all motivated to alter a few bits and pieces and this time she is getting us to dig out an old pressie that just wasn't your cup of tea and get someone to 'alter' it into something wonderful - the details can all be found here

Sue (how busy is she!) has got the 'inchies' bug and has set us all off on a challange to make some and share....they can be used to make a card after maybe so take a look at what is going on here

Carol has just launched a fabulous project to make a mini album using envelopes, check out the details here

Wendy is still busy with the ATC's - have you had a go yet? Fantastic Floiage has just ended and you can see the results on the gallery (very shortly), and the new theme will be decided by a poll currently running on the forum.

If you join in with any project or challenge you can add you name to the list to be entered into a lucky dip draw.

So it is busy, busy - and I hope that you are enjoying it - and will come along and visit if you have not joined us already. I have even added some more smileys - to bring a smile to your face, if you have any favs you want adding give me a link or send them to me and I will add them.
