Card Week - Flower Power

Hi there all you have a go crafters, how wonderful to see so many people willing to give last weeks alter it challenge a go!  When Janet and I started this challenge we hoped that we could encourage people just to have a go and maybe have fun.  Over the years we have seen so many people start, quite hesitant at first and then blossom into happy crafters!  What joy! It makes us smile to share our excitement at trying new things and it's lovely that so many of you want to join us on our journey!

Just as a little encouragement we got Random Org to pick this weeks winner and that is 

Number 11

Do contact us to claim your Craft Barn Voucher and let us know if you fancy a spot as a guest designer


With the sun shining brilliantly all week, it's been prime time to get out into the garden and admire all the beauty around you.  Rain for this week though so we thought we'd cheer you up by bringing a little of the garden in to you with this weeks theme
