It has been a little while since our last Nutshells post, but that's not to say we have been sitting on our laurels!
October in the U.K is Breast Cancer Awareness month and to support this important event we have created a very special Digi stamp set.
Pink Frosting will be available as a digital download from the beginning of October and is filled with lost of sweet images including a new Nutshell... Pecan!
The full set will include two character images along with two cupcakes and a selection of cupcake toppers and sentiments.
(Inside of card showing more of the set - Sitting Pecan Nut and two Cupcakes, with Cherry topper)

We will be donating half of every download sold to a Breast Cancer Awareness charity, so please spread the word if you like the set, especially as it's for a good and ever so important cause.

Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.

It has been a lovely long weekend here in the UK. But sadly yesterday was the last bank holiday of the year and I can't quite believe its September already!

Before the count down to Christmas begins, we have some wonderful cards from our DT to share, with more than a hint of summer...

Our Fab Guest DT member Jan created this wonderful pop-up card!

Thanks for stopping by, Katie and Colette.
