More Cards & Blog Candy

Well altho i haven't been around much lately, don't think i haven't been creating!!

My 50 card kit come from QVC yesterday, so i have been making some! I have had a similar one before and they are just fab, they take all of about 3 mins to make, some of them are obviously nicer than others but they work out at like 43p a card, so you can't complain! Which is great as one of the shops that sell my cards told me they want christmas ones in early October! lol. Only a couple of weeks away so i thought i better get a move on!

The other day i was on the toys r us website and found this utter bargain! It was one of those kiddies drawing desk things... it was down to like £12.49, so we had to have that! Here is a piccy of Lissy enjoying her new desk, she loves it!!

Ooo yes and to celebrate nearly getting 5000 hits, i am going to be giving away some Blog Candy so watch this space for more info!!!

New Cards

Lissy had a sleep whilst the Grand Prix was on so i managed to make a card... a halloween one using my new Magnolia stamps... i have never made a halloween card before, this is my first one, how funny is that!!!

This next one i made last night using a whipper snapper stamp, can't wait til we receive our delivery next week... how exciting, i MUST get that penguin one, it's soo cute!! You can't tell in the piccy but the polar bear is 3d decoupaged so it stands out!

Now sadly i am trying to do my self assessment tax return, not ever done anything like it before so have no idea and the book is in accountant magnolias keep distracting me so it's not going to plan yet! Wish me luck!

My New Stash

Well i had a lovely day yesterday, Michael drove me & jo to sussex yesterday so we could go craft shopping, we haven't been there for a couple of months so it was nice to see some new bits.
We also met up with my mum and we also saw my sister and her family. We went to the Craft Barn, Creative Pastimes & The Glitter Pot! I managed to meet Caz face to face which was good.... she was making some lovely Penny Black Cards........ so pleased too as i won a prize on the raffle at the glitter pot, i never win anything ever so i am mega pleased!!!

Anyway i thought i would share with you some of the new stash i got yesterday.... lots of papers.. you can't see them all in the piccy buts its about 2.5" high of 12x12 paper!!

And when i came home, i had tons of parcels too, my other lot of Tildas came... so here is a piccy of them all reunited together again!!
I also got some stuff i ordered off the telly for the shops that sell my cards and some of the new K&Co Peppermint range, i did take a piccy but its disapeered, so i will find it later and show you!!
Planning to make more cards today.. i say planning as lissy is being a terror....... i have made one to show you later tho!!

I'm still here!

Just wanted to let you know i am still here!!
I have been pretty busy with orders and ordering new stock so i haven't had much chance to do any crafting!! I am trying to plan bits & pieces for Christmas, which seems a while a way but it's not that far away, especially as i supply 3 shops with cards!

Here is a quick sample of some treat bags i am going to do at Christmas. I am going to take them to our local shop and see if they want any nearer christmas to sell by the till :) I am going to do snowmen poop too with the white maltesers! Fab stocking fillers i think!

High Hopes stamps should be here today.. this is our first batch of these.. they are just so sweet!!!

Hopefully i will have more cards very very soon!!

Another One

OK, so i was wrong, i did manage to make one today!!

This one uses the new Rubber Romance Girlsfriends On A Bench stamp & Daisy Bucket Papers (both available from First Class Crafts).... the rest are items from Little Silver Hat Monthly Ribbon Kit which arrived today!! I am gonna add some wording but haven't decided what yet.... any suggestions??
Just a quick note... the stamp image looks small on this card, it is quite big but this card is very large its just under A5. a biggan for me! lol.

A couple more!

Here are a couple more bits and pieces i have made...
This is the lil mini notebook i made the other day with my BIA. I used the cute K&CO Hopscotch Girl papers & chipboard embellishments (lil butterfly) also my QK Vixen for the lettering
This is the card a made last , i cased Michelles fab card (see Michelle S's Blog ---->), i used similar colours and the same stamp but changed the rest... hope you don't mind Michelle

I am hoping to get some more cards done today, but Lissy is being a right old madam and drawing on everything so it looks unlikely!!

Finally Found It

Hurrah, Michael finally remembered to bring home the camera... i feel quite lost without it!!

I did however have to hunt for the usb cable for it... i finally found it so i can now show you more piccies!!!

Both of these are made using the new Penny Black Stamps & Dovecraft Paper Packs.... which are an absolute bargain and must have!!
I have since used my Pro Markers and they are fab, they do bleed a bit on the usual card i use but i am getting the hang of them..might need the other colours soon.. i sold the cards i made using them so i can't show you yet but hopefully i will have the chance to make more shortly!!! I ordered a whole bunch of Magnolia stamps and can't wait for them to come... plus some elzybells that i sneakily ordered!!

Some new stash

I thought we should get out the house for a bit as we have been so busy adding products to the site and still have hundreds to add and sort out.... after all everyone deserves a break!

So we went down to HobbyCraft & The Range as i had run out of white card... of course some others bits fell into my basket!

I can't take any pics as i left the memorycard in M's laptop that he left at the office! lol oops!

Well anyway whilst in HC i saw some Letraset pro markers, the kind that are used for MangaArt, i thought these might be similar and a cheaper alternative to Copic Markers.... so i did get them, i have only tried thm out a bit and they are really fab.... i hoep to actually make something soon using them!

Also got some Derwent Watercolor Pencils, 100 sheets of white card, some stickers for lissy, some foam stickers and some other crafty bits for lissy! She likes to do crafty and feel involved especialy when its her 'own' crafty stuff, i know she isn't even 2 yet but she is very advanced for her age... especially where drawing/coloring is concerned!

When we were in the range we came across the most gorgeous candle holders, we are gonna be redecorating our bedroom soon and they were the last set so i had to have them too!

I am off to sort out this BBQ, Lissy is sat here watching In The Night Garden, my god that show is sooooooooo sketchy, i bet the creators were on acid or something.. with names like PinkyPlonk what do they expect!! lol.
