Cards and things for sale................

Yep I have been having a turf out. I have decided to get rid of my Clip it up as I need to room for my ever increasing Spellbinders collection which I have found the perfect storage for ( more info to follow)

I have also made a few cards in the last couple of days, these are mainly samples for Oysterstamps

I have really enjoyed making these. I have found the most delicious card it's called milk touch and it feels like velvet and is embosses beautifully, Heat and cuttlebug versions.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I have making them.

Ouch been an expensive day!

To day has been an expensive day, and nope it was not on craft LOL!!! though I sneaked a quick trip to Picckleberry.

My exhaust on my Big car has has had a really annoying rattle for the last 2-3 months. Well I was in my craft room the other day when my DH (who borrowed the car to go to work) came home, I swear I heard him coming down the lane!

I upped and took the Jalopy to Kwik Fit who quoted me £464.00 to mend it, well you could of picked me up off the floor, I dutifully paid my deposit, then went to the Spray shop to get a quote for fixing the rather large scrape down the side of my car; not my fault this time(DH). Out of curiosity I went into a local whell repair place and asked them how much it would be to fix, well I wish I had gone there first. £200.

Off I went and got my deposit back!

Lesson learned, shop around.

Two posts in one day!!!!!!!!!

I cannot edit my first post to add some pictures, so I am writing a second post.

Here I hope are the pictures of my altered box from last Saturday and the cards I have been making.

I think I may of found my Mojo

Hey there,

Yes it is true I lost my Mojo for a while, hopefully I have now found it again, what caused me to lose it in the first place?

My craft room was....................... It was a mess, there was so much stuff in there I could not move! well I took an afternoon and cleaned it up, I now have space to create again. I cannot get to excited as I have a lot of stamps to clear up first, then the 12 x 12 papers * Shudders *

So Last week I went to a workshop at It was the absolute divine Jennie from The Artistic stamper We created from a very plain and boring pine box a wonderful Christmas display cabinet. I had a blast, met some wonderful ladies adn got very inky in the process..............

I have also been on a card making frenzy, I have made some Christmas cards as samples for Oysterstamps as some of you may not know, I demonstrate Martha Stewart Punches and Spellbinders dies for them across the country, I love it I wish it was my full time job.

Well have a good weekend bye for now
