Only 4 days left to get your Challenge entries in folks!  Fifteen lovely entries so far - but we would certainly like to see some more.  And just to encourage you I still have a few more Challenge related projects to show you tonight.

Helen has taken the Summer's Ball theme in a slightly different direction - and these girls are certainly having a ball of a summer (pity about the current rain - what happened to the long hot summers I seem to remember from childhood, or was it all a dream!) -

Now a lovely card by Sue -

And a gorgeous purse by Paula -

And I will just add another view of Paula's original purse for the Challenge - loving the addition of the pendant and the bottle in the photo - just perfect!

And to finish the Challenge inspiration this evening I have a very lovely card sent over by Daniele who is in charge of the current theme - which I think fits the bill perfectly -

So do join us with your Challenge project very soon!

On a different note Malcolm and I are very busy preparing to go down to Surrey next week to The Craft Barn, in Lingfield, Surrey.  This is an annual Extravaganza, with lots of demonstrators to see, and a fabulous shop from which to purchase crafting goodies by the ton!  I am running a class there on Friday, 29th June, all day, where we will be making a fabulous working faux cuckoo clock. I believe there are a couple of spaces still left, and I would just love to see you there!  Here is a sneaky peak of what we will be getting up to on the day.  I will also be demoing all day on the Saturday and Sunday - so do come and say hello if you possibly can!

Finally it is great to see that we are still getting new followers regularly on this blog, and thanks for the continuing delightful comments - they really mean a lot!

Truth is I am a bit daunted by the design team's projects to enter my modest creation in the contest ! How fabulous is Paula's purse ?
