The prize from Crafty Ribbons...........

This is a gorgeous Poppy creation but it's on Flickr which will not allow images to be lifted so sadly we can't share it with you. A little note about Flickr and Slipcoast entries, whilst we love to see your work it is only possible to comment on these entries if one has the appropriate account and as a number of the DT do not they will see your work but just cannot comment.

The prize from FlonzCraft............


And finally the prize from Stix2..............


Well done to you all, please mail me by 10th July with your full names and postal addys so I can get your prizes on their way to you. Two unclaimed prizes re-drawn 11th July and winners notified by blog comment/e.mail.

As usual the DT have been keeping their eyes open for Guest Designers and we would like to invite the following to join us, two months this time as it's the holiday season and thought it would give both us and the GDT's ample time to prepare their work.

August - we would love Catherine to join us, here is her lovely card from June..................


Ans in September we would like Riti to join us, this is her gorgeous card for June....................

Please both mail me so I can tell you all about the theme for your GDT month.

See you all again on Sunday with a new challenge.
