Ickle Baby Cards

This is one of the new released from Toodle & Binks, I have no idea why but I though it would make a great baby card, I think it works well! There is also a super cute goat that I hope to get to play with today :) Pop over to T & B by he link on the right and see the super cards being created.
This was jut a quick one made for a lady my Mum works for, her poor daughter was 15 days over her due date!!! but it worked out quiet well as they live out in oz and Granny flew out with him only 1 day old so he's still fresh, nothing sweeter :) My cards lately are being made up with bits from my scraps box, well I have 5 of them, I have soooo much stuff being wasted lying in boxes so I decided to get it used and get organised, well thats the plan.

Gorjuss Girl & More Goodies

I think I forgot to mention my new Gorjuss stamp set!!! They are just fab and very different from the first lot which is great, the angel & bear is my fave, this was just a quick one but I am pleased with how it turned out.

This is something I am very excited about my new range of gift ware in the shop from the lovely people at East Of India, still in the handmade theme and super cute!! They have a great mix of shaker style gifts for everyone, so be warned family and friends your be getting some of this LOL

I love this pic purely cause it's craft goodies, na I just love the colours LOL There was some new exciting products from the supplier and I had to have them for the shop/website, as you do, I'll be hopefully adding them to the website later today, if you want peek a link to the shop is on the right.

SSS Chalange #1

It's time for the very first challenge at Sunday Sketch & Stamp! Woo hoo!

We're having a blog hop today (26th April) to mark the launch of the site, so if you'd like to join in then hop back on over to the SSS blog where you'll find all the instructions and the link to the first blog to visit.If you're already joining in the blog hop, you should have come to my blog from Maggie (and if you didn't, you've made a mistake, oops, and need to go back to SSS and start again...sorry!).

My blog hop question is: "What character was on the wrapping paper used to make a Valentine's card for Hubs?".

You'll find the answer somewhere on my blog, so be sure to have a good look around! When you've found the answer, write it down and then hop on over to Clare's blog, where you can see her wonderful DT card and the next question and blog hop link.So, onto the challenge! Maggie, our fearless leader, has come up with a fantastic sketch for our very first SSS challenge and here is my take on it:

I Used: DCVW Glitter Stack, Gorjuss Girl Stamp, Cuttlebug Swirl Embossing & Bubble Folder's, Colour Connection Glitter Flowers, some dotted ribbon & Copic Markers to colour

Good luck, have fun, and thanks for playing along with us - we can't wait to see what you create!

On My Hols :)

The Gorjuss Girls have arrived, well some of them I am just waiting on the pocket mirrors, they are even cuter in real life if that is at all possible, m only problem is I have had 4 orders for framed pics like mine LOL
This I'm afraid is the only card I'll have on show for a wee while as the only crafting i have with me are my stamps, copics and beads I decide i really need a break fro crafting before the summer starts.
I have some of this little beauty after doing a stamping session wit my friend jenny, she very kindly came into the shop to play, I actually loved the Magnolia Spring set that much I have ordered a few for the shop/website I can't wait!!!!!

This little yellow fellow was the chick my ickle boy(he's 11) made me for mothers day, minus the cream egg as that's long gone lol

My poor blog has been abandoned as i was busy getting the shop sorted, all the orders complete and the kids in check before I left on holiday, we are in sunny York! I love it such a beautiful place with beautiful old buildings and the most amazing quirky shops all over the place.
Yesterday we headed to PC world as my laptop is playing up and hubs agreed I need a new one :) I did think very hard about a pink one but I don't think I will get the right spec or the my price range :( and we went to see the Monsters v Aliens movie, it was funny in parts but the main thing was it was easy on my brain and the kids loved it.
