Now the June Challenge 'winners' have been chosen (and I hope you have all picked a stamp as your 'prize') I am back with some more yummy bits to show you from the team.  The Challenges are held bi-monthly these days, so the next one will be for August, and details will be available from the beginning of the month.  I think it is also high time we put some more blog candy together for you, so please watch this space, as well as our Facebook page which you will find HERE (lots of 'likes' always appreciated folks!).

But now on with the yummies.  First of all some very pretty things made by Gio ..

Loving this miniature altered umbrella -

And these little bead boxes -

The seaside stamps in the top project are from CI-272 - Seaside Treasures, and the teapot image on top of the bead boxes is from CI-391- Teatime Delights.

Gio has also sent over images for some other great ideas such as altered watch straps -

(Such cute little shrink plastic seahorses!)

And a card -

Plus a teabag box -

A perfect fit!

And some delectable fabric cupcakes, in a little box -

Sylvie has altered a chopping board - which now looks amazing!!

Lots of lovely tulips here from CI-388 - Tiptoe through the Tulips which certainly reminds us that even the collage stamps can be used in lots of ways, other than the obvious straightforward whole image stamping.

Daniele has been making some simply gorgeous cards -

Too many CI products here to link to I think - but of course you will find just about everything you need on our website at www.craftyindividuals.co.uk.  Stunning colour schemes Daniele!

I have a few little images of my own to finish with, starting with a necklace decorated with one of Malcolm's lovely tree images cut from the A4 Matt Sheet (I am wearing this a lot at the moment)

A Fairy box, using CI-132, plus the mask - Leafy Border stencilled around the edges -

And a teeny tiny tag using part of the Beautiful Butterflies Panel Mask -

I have rattled through lots of stuff tonight, but still have much more to share next time with images from Lynne, and Isabelle and more to come.  And then of course we will have Blog Candy too!

Finally I have a lovely image sent over by Pam Davies recently, using our Gilded Cage die -

Thanks to all, and of course thanks to you for tuning in!

Enjoy the sunshine,

A gorgeous and vibrant display of goodies.
Jean, I can well understand why you are wearing that pendant all the time - beautiful.
