Mid month reminder

Hello everyone, hope you had a good week and are set for the weekend.

A few mid month reminders, there is still almost two weeks to enter our May challenge 'Medals and Monarchs', I think we scared some of your with this one, but honestly it's not as bad as it fist seems and there are so many possibilities. Although the DT have all used patriotic colours, it could equally be a celebration of your own Countries participation in the upcoming Olympics and your own flag colours, or a prettily coloured image of perhaps a Queen or Princess. I do hope you will join in the fun, as you can see in the post below the prize is as awesome as ever.

This Saturday Michelle from Stix 2 will be demoing in store 10am through 4pm, you will be surprised how many fabulous products they sell. Michelle will show you some inspirational ways of using them so I hope you will be able to pop in for a coffee, browse the store and see what Michelle is up to.

But if you can't get into the store, you can still grab yourself some bargain on line, loads of Hero Arts stamps have been reduced in price, some by almost 50%,  you will find them all here.

Also new in are clear stamp sets from Inky Antics here, along with new dies from Doo Hickey and Marianne Designs which you will find in the same place. There are also some sample cards made with the Inky Antics on the gallery here, the gallery is constantly being updated so you might need to scroll down a page or two.

Hope you have a good weekend whatever you have planned.

May challenge

Hello Peeps, how you all doing ? Are you ready for a new challenge ?

I hope so as this month we are celebrating again, but this time the upcoming Olympics which draws in Countries from all around the world and the Queens Diamond Jubilee with the theme:

**********Medals and Monarchs**********

The theme offers so many options, you can go very patriotic, or use loads of 'diamonds' on your work or use the opportunity to celebrate your Countries involvement in the Olympics using your own traditional colours.

Still lots of new goodies arriving in store, there's a Special 25th Anniversary set of Copics, the new Summer Memories Magnolia stamps and DP's, some really pretty designs there and the Spring set of Distress Inks, super colours and already got mine and they are great......... here's a taster of just a few. 

There's a super prize on offer from the lovely guys at Sir Stampalot...................

Now for some inspiration from the DT as well as our Guest Designer this month Heidi who has gone very Regal and made two super pieces for us......

Clare is taking a break this month as she has been poorly, get well soon Clare

If you want to grab yourself any of the celebration stamps or other goodies the DT have used just click on the pictures below........................
