Last week was extremely chaotic for us here at Nutcrafters, and we did not get to Blog land as we had wished. Today though we are back to business and have some great DT cards to share.

We will also be previewing our new releases for August from this week so please check back in with us for sneak peeks and details.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.

Everything has been turned upside down this week and I think I will be playing catch-up for a few days, so First apologies for not posting anything before now.

My first weekend off in months turned into a disaster and I am still trying to find myself!

We have some Great DT cards to share with you, and hope that you will pay a visit to our Design teams blogs to see what they have used.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

I am getting very forgetful in my old age! Last week we set up a poll in our side bar and I have totally forgotten to mention it.

The poll is to see whether Coco should keep her glasses?

Coco is based on our very own Colette, who wears her glasses almost everyday, and seem part of who she is. Hence when I created Coco, the glasses seemed and obvious choice.

Colette's Mum however is not as keen, and asked "Can't you be drawn without your glasses?"

So we put it to a vote, if you have the time please vote and tell us what you think.

Now to a few DT cards to hopefully give you some Inspiration for the crafting weekend ahead!


Thanks for stopping by, Katie.

Thanks for looking, Colette and Katie.
