What I bought today (Thanks Craftworld and The Hobby House)...

I know ages since last post, absolutely no excuses!
I went along to my favourite local craft shop (Craft World) and must admit I am totally spoiled with all the different goodies that I am tempted to buy (they think of everything).  I adore The Hobby House toppers, flowers, ribbons, gems, stamps, of the short version - everything they have on offer! 

At the checkout in Craft World they had THE box of absolute Hobby House delight, a complete box with all the contents (OMG) to make 12 of the most beautiful cards, I had to take this home with me.  Have a look here, you too will understand.  I know what I will be doing on my Bank Holiday weekend, watch this space so you share too!

March already...

Well, another quick month gone by.  Bethany and I looking forward to the Hobbycrafts and the SECC next weekend, definitely making time to see Barbara Gray at Clarity Stamps.  Would be nice if Create and Craft made an appearance, feel a bit neglected here in Scotland by the big companies, wonder if anyone agrees...?

February already....

Been ages since I updated blog, so taking a chance to do that today!  This is a card made by 13 year old Bethany using the Me To You kit, the colours are just lovely, sadly the Glamour Dust glitter doesn't show so well in the photograph as she has used this over the flowers and also highlighted the pink butterfly on the backing paper.  She also used two different size of diamante gems to highlight the corners and the picture and sentiment.  Our local craft shop was having a competion asking entries to use Spellbinders, unfortunately, I don't have a huge number of Spellbinders so we used what was to hand, happy with the end result! I would also like to enter Bethany's card in the following challenges as well...
