New Stamp

Just wanted to come on and show you what I made last night.  You know from time to time you read on blogs how good such and such was for sending orders etc etc and sometimes I have to admit I am sceptical as some of the blogs I follow are funded by suppliers due to their super high volume of readers.  Well this time I can 100% vouch for the fact that Crafty Emma Store is amazing!
I noticed on her blog that she had a sale so I wondered over and had a little peek and found, amongst a few other things, this beautiful stamp by CraftHouse Press (a UK company) and imagine my surprise when the order arrived the very next morning!  Wow!  That is amazing service Emma, thanks so much!
ETA: The shoe stamp is still on sale £3.49!

It's called Shoes and I think it's really lovely and I hope you like what Ive done with it.  I used some pearlised card that Ive had for years and the bloom was made from some sale bargain a long while ago too - I always knew it would come in handy!!
So, if you want to experience 1st class service for a change then I can personally recommend a visit to Emma's Store!

And talking of deliveries I received a largish package yesterday that looked like 12" papers.  I never order 12" as I just can't bring myself to cut into them usually so I was really struggling to understand what it could be.  I'd won a draw in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine and got a fab new set by Basic Grey with accessories!  Lucky me!

Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend!

ps. I can't get a link to Emma to work yet but I'll add it to my sidebar.

Little touch of lace


Here's my card for this week's challenge at Delicious Doodles which is to use lace.  I had to go and buy some specially as Im not really a lace girl so I hope this counts as lace!

This is Teri's latest image and is now available in the shop (link on sidebar) and it's called 'Floral Watering Can' and Ive coloured it with PM's and Copic.  All of the paper and card is from my huge supply of scraps as I am making a concerted effort to reduce that pile before using any news ones!

Hope you have a lovely weekend,

CC Catch Up


I am so far behind with the challenge cards for the Christmas Club I thought Id better get a jiggy on!
This is the challenge I set many weeks back and I chose to use Penguin, Red & Stitching for this card.  Ive used Teri's 'Penguin with present' from Delicious Doodles and the bp is from Pink Petticoat.

I think Ive got another 3 to catch up on which were set by Sylvie, Margaret and Carol!  If you'd like to join in and get a few xmas cards made in preparation for this year then why not!  Its just a group of girls who make one card each fortnight and they are all listed on my sidebar (I may need to update it so apologies if anyone is missing today) so just contact one of us to find out more.

Vintage sewing


Back in the land of blog and here's a card Ive made for my ex MIL from my eldest.  She asked for elderly and floral but knowing Joy as I do I know how she used to love to make everything she could so I managed to use an image that Ive had for a few years from Free Graphics Fairy.

Ive used BG 'Skate Shoppe' papers and I photocopied my tape measure and coloured it with DI.  

I'll leave you with a snap from Easter of DD1 with her Chester who was quite jealous he couldnt get in with her!

Hope to see you again soon
