We had a fabulous time in Spain, including several colourful days spent in Seville.  It was very warm and sunny and we took around 1,000 photos between us - plenty of future material for crafting there then!

I have quickly put together a little taster (fragments) below - just amazing textures and colours:

Mmmm - yummy!

Plus another one of my favourites:

Well to crack on tonight - I have a few other crafting things to show you.  These are really relating back to the current CHALLENGE, which is now almost ending (just over a day for your submissions folks!), and should have been shown here a while ago.  Firstly a rather lovely 'winged things' wall hanging by SUE - a delight to grace anyone's wall.

Now a beautiful decorated tray by Isabelle - who is making some really creative projects at the moment, so do check out her blog -

Which also doubles as a calendar project - made for THE CRAFT BARN BLOG .....

And whilst I am on the subject of The Craft Barn Blog (which is always a treat to visit) - I spotted this project made by the uber talented ISA (from France) - I hope she won't mind me popping these images on here, but they are just so lovely - using our elements plates CI-255 AND CI-305 -

Go visit ISA'S BLOG as she is one very talented lady (and you can buy stuff too!).

Anyway back to 'winged things' and a lovely shrine by ZUZU, which was also made for The Craft Barn Blog -

And to finish this post tonight TASSY has been busy putting together a couple more of her clever and informative videos, using our products.  The first is on the subject of 'winged things' and can be located HERE - this is the card she is demonstrating:

And the second is a lovely alcohol ink technique based card ....

which can be watched HERE.  Enjoy!
