We are sponsored by thelovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 trolley dash around her store !! :-)

We have some sad news Sonia has decided to step down from the team ,, your time with us has been short but sweet Sonia ,, I wish you all the best and hope you will join us in the challenges when you have time :-)

Lizzy has now joined the team and if you haven't visited her blog yet you should ,,, her work is fabulous !! this is Lizzy's first DT post so please pop over to leave her some love :-)

We are resuming our Guest Design Team from challenge 46 and Cathy will be choosing from all the entries for this challenge. If you'd like to be on the GDT please put this on your entry. The GDT will work with us for 2 challenges.

You have until Sunday 24th October 8:00pm to join in,plenty of time ,,, don't forget to let us know what new or neglected stash you have used on your cards/creations :-)

I decided to make a Luminary this week ,,, the sketch I thought could work quite well if I could find some stripey paper ,,,, after a little rummage I found this from My Minds Eye ,,, a Christmas Luminary it is then !! Everything I used on this I have had in my stash for at least a year !! I made a couple of these before ,, very quick and easy to do and a lovely gift idea I think !! You can see the instuctions here I just added some punched snowfakes and glimmer dots and that was it ,, done and dusted ,,, unlike the house ,,, ugh !!

this is the fab sketch designed by our lovely teamie Sue :-)
