Well I have amazed myself - with only a little bit of help from Paul I have upgraded the forum to a nice new shiny new home. It is the latest version of phpBB3 so it has lots of new features and I decided to go for a new colour scheme.

I has a new destination and is at http://craftsbycarolyn.co.uk/craftforum - so if you have it bookmarked you need to change you bookmarks - and also your 'blinky' if you have one on your blog.

I am still tweaking it and happy to take on comments - I really hope you like it.

Ok so I haven't posted in a long while...

I just don't know where time goes - I do keep things up to date on the site and the forum and don't always post on here as well!

So today the weather is yuk and I am going to attempt to convert the forum to the latest version - so it will be unavailable for a little while....so if you are desperate for a chat you could see if anyone stops by the chat room

and if you are bored the latest challenges are:

All that glitters - CBCC094
This stamp was given to me in a swap - isn't it fab.....she just had to be glittered up....so your challenge this week is all that glitters.

I used metallic watercolours from The Works and some H2Os to paint her, that paper is a big cheat and is from a DCWV stack that DH gave me for Christmas.

Pop your entries in the gallery or link the picture from another hosting site if you prefer but we'd love to see them! You will be entered into a draw for a CBC CREW FABULOUS prize each time you show us a 'never seen before' project for this challenge.

If you add your card to the gallery enter keyword CBCC094 and we'll be able to see the Entries

Sheer Elegance - CBCC093

I thought that this card was pretty, and worth putting up for a challenge...so many things I could have asked you to do but decided on "sheer elegance"....and will let you read into the title what you want.....

I stamped my card with versamark - although nor sure it shows that well in the photo, and also used glimmer mists for the pink centre card.
