The Flowers for May
Thanks to everyone who joined in with our Royal Celebration last week - what a fabulous day it was. We hope you enjoyed seeing all the Pomp and Ceremony surrounding the Wedding of Prince William and Catherine. It was also wonderful to visit all your blogs to see how the theme inspired you in your crafting.
This week is exciting too as we welcome a brand new Guest Designer to the team, we'd like to introduce you to
who is coming all the way from Russia ;) to share her fabulous crafting skills We love her work and we're sure you will too.
The first Dare of each month this year is given over to the flowers associated with that month. The flowers associated with the Marvellous Month of May are:
the Hawthorn and the Lily of the Valley
