Would you like to spend a crafty day at The Craft Barn?
They are hosting a First Saturday Demo Day on Saturday 7th May with Karen Maccoy, Carole Cann and Lina McDermott, who will be focusing on masculine cards and gifts ready for Father’s day. This will be such a benefit for anyone who struggles with ideas for the men in our lives.

Also, over the weekend of Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of June they will be holding another EXTRAVAGANZA weekend, these are really exciting and have 24 demonstrators in attendance! This year the theme will be 'The Best of British', focussing on products manufactured in the UK.
The demonstrations are great for picking up tips and techniques, and best of all the demos are FREE, and run continuously throughout both days, so you don't need to book in advance - just turn up and watch! :)

So this weeks challenge ... The Craft Barn are offering TWO Tatty Button stamps to this weeks lucky winner!
Sandy, Thank you for your generosity! (I so want these)


And all you have to do to be in with a chance of inking up those little beauties is to make a card using this weeks sketch...

and this is what i did with it ....

I know Easter was last weekend, but i'm chasing my tail here slightly.  I just don't know where all my days are going too.  I still have Easter images all coloured up ready to go on cards LOL!  I think I can salvage a couple and use them on birthday cards with a clever sentiment from Create with TLC

To make this box I used:~
1 x Tea Bag Box
CS ~ Stash
DP's ~ Sammy D ~ Easter Kit
Image ~ Magnolia Tilda in Egg
Sentiment ~ Create with TLC
 Flowers, Pearls & Raffia ~ Stash
Tools ~ Sewing Machine, Pencil Crayons, Blending Stumps, Sansodor, Butterfly Die, Chocolate Easter Egg Mould, Cello Bags, Chocolate & Sweeties
