Congratulations to our first ever Top 3!! 

Starting this month we have a badge to give to our winner & our Top 3, so please if you 
are our 'die cuts' winner or in our Top 3 please email me at with N&A challenge in the topic & I will get your badges out to you!

Before we get to our challenge this month we have to say a sad goodbye to our lovely DT member Pascale who has decided to step down from the team. I am sure you will join us in wishing her luck for the future.

We would also like you to welcome Sheryl to the team, please pop over to her blog & say hi!

Now as well as the craft shop we have also been running an annual crafty get away and we have more planned for October this year. If you have not heard about it before it is in the UK and we take over a gorgeous house in the country and have a brilliant time crafting and chatting in a relaxed environment and you get a great crafty goody bag to use and take away with you. If that sounds like something you would like to be part of you can find the full details HERE. It would be great to be able to meet some of you in person.

Back to the challenge and this month we would like you to make some thing in mono. You can choose whatever colour you like and it can be any type of craft you like.
