Last month when I returned all the ATC's to those that had joined in, I also sent them a mamelock sheet and the challenge for June was to use the mamelocks from their own sheet. I did try to make sure that everyone had a different sheet but I know there were a couple of duplicates. Here are the results of that challenge and its an honour and a privilege to get to sort through them every month before I send them back on their way

I made these items yesterday whilst watching the Grand Prix. I am going to try and take some better photographs as these are not very clear and I have now found the charger for my camera with the anti-shake thingy on it so things should be better soon :-)

The challenge on Secret Crafters Saturday Challenge blog was to come up with something using "Pink & Green". I went through my box of bits and pieces (waste not want not box) and have made this ATC. I also braved it and got out my shrink plastic and had a quick go - hence the 2 floral circles at the bottom

I received a phone call yesterday from a customer asking for an anniversary card for his son and daughter in law. I said that wouldn't be a problem - then he said "and can you bring it with you on Friday?". This made me laugh as I always do. He said it was their 20th anniversary (hence the China theme) and I said that if he knew this Saturday was going to be their 20th anniversary, he'd had 20 years to let me know and get a card ready LOL. Still, using one of Joanna Sheen's cd's and layering up all the toppers on the sheet, I came up with this so I do hope he likes it (and I also hope he's delivering it by hand as it stands about 1" off the card itself lol)
I was asked to make an anniversary card for 2 people who both love flowers so where else to turn for inspiration than Robert Adams Flowers cd. I love the images and the layered flowers look so real
Hope you like it and thank you for looking

Blooming 'eckers - I haven't been here for ages. I have been dashing around like the proverbial blue-reared fly and I am sure I am going to meet myself coming backwards one of these days.
I've managed to do a little bit of crafting and the results of a least 1 session will be in my next post.
Mind you - the way the posts read on my blog, you'll have already seen it before you read this post so it renders this post a bit redundant really lol
Never mind - never one to say just one word when 6 will do - that's me lol

I have decided that while I am sitting gawping at the telly, I really need to be "doing something" so I have invested in some findings and beads etc etc and this is what I did yesterday afternoon.
What do you think? I'd love your comments - good or bad please xx
I was asked to make a very simple non religious card for a man to give to another gentleman who has recently lost his wife. I used Greeting Card Factory as they have some "beautiful", if that is the right word, designs suitable for sympathy cards and simple added some silver borders and a sentiment peel off on a separate piece of card.

Here are the ATC's I received today from Pauls ATC Swappers site. They are all lovely and thank you to everyone that made them xxx
The knight and the princess is very special to me as I call my OH my Black Knight and he calls me his princess and I've got blonde hair (well blonde from a bottle anyway lol).

Being such a busy bee as I am at the moment, I almost forgot that I had to delivery a card for an order today, so this morning before eating my breakfast, I made this from Fred's flowers and a few embellishments.
hope you like it and thank you for looking
