Morning everyone.  The weather here is GORGEOUS.  Lovely and warm and so sunny.  Going out in a little while shopping with Ethan.  I've just bribed him to wear his sandals - without socks, for a trip to McDonalds rofl!!  He may be only six, and I am his mother, but I just couldn't take him out in public wearing both lol!!!  Need to get ahead with some DT work this weekend as going to Norfolk for a week at the beginning of June.  Am wondering if I could set a little table up outside later today and enjoy the sunshine at the same time!!

We have another super challenge for you this week at Secret Crafter Saturday.  Huge thanks to all of you who took part in last weeks Metal challenge.  This week is the turn of my lovely teamie Donna to set the challenge and she's come up with a stonking one!!  This week we want

" N O   P A T T E R N E D   P A P E R "

.Arrrrgggggghhhh - I hear you cry!   We all love our design papers but this time we don't want to see any on your projects.  Here's what I came up with....


Stamp - Unknown
Colouring Medium - Copics
Glitter - Art Institute and Glamour Dust
Lace - Stash
Ribbon - local
Cardstock - Stash
Die Cut - Nesties (Secret Crafter Shop)
Embossing Folder - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots (Secret Crafter Shop)
Flowers - Prima
Card Candy

I've this rather neglected stamp a while and just fancied using it for this project.  However, I've just had a good look at it and there's absolutely NO print on the sides so I have no idea who the manufacturer is.  I'm pretty sure I got it off ebay a couple of years ago with a female version forming a little set.  Sorry I can't give any more info.

This week we have a new team member joining us, the very talented and popular Teri.  Good to have you on board chuck, looking forward to working with you.

Thanks for stopping by my little crafty haven.  I really appreciate all your lovely comments and read each and every one of them.

Take care and happy crafting.

Lovely card Mel, did you get to craft outside so you could enjoy the sun? I took my tapestry out and sat in the garden sewing. I couldn't bring myself to stay inside and make cards
