Good evening crafters, I have news!! you might remember me saying I was on a mission to find my husband a hobby (preferably a very time consuming one) to give me more crafting time. Well ….result, he’s bought himself a scooter whey hey!!
He always had a lambretta, a throwback from his Wigan casino days, but decided he was getting too old to be sat at the side of the road with a spanner while all his mates went riding by. They’re not known for their reliability and while doing one up seemed a great idea when he was younger the novelty of breaking down every time he went out had gradually worn off!!
So, he’s got a new Vespa, and quite nice it is too. I did have one scary moment when he said we could go off for the day to the coast together on it, “NO CHANCE” I thought, he can go off to the coast and I will be quite happy sat here on my own making cards …mission nicely accomplished!!
On to today's cards, this weeks theme over that Lili’s little fairies is pretty in pink so I’ve made these little mini cards
I’ve used Spellbinders circles and lacey circle dies
The little mini cards were in a pack of 12 with envelopes, they’re by K & Co from their gorgeous Smitten range
The crystals, lace and also the button twine are from The Ribbon girl, I love this button twine I think it looks so cute tied in between the flowers
Hope you like my little cards, thanks so much for all the comments you’ve been leaving for me, I read and appreciate every one and do try to visit all your blogs.
Have a lovely evening x

Note to self – I must stop buying crafty stash!
Good morning crafters!
Oh my word it’s absolutely chucking it down again here, what a wash out the Summer is so far.
So, instead of busying myself putting some washing out which is my usual early morning job, I’ve been sat at the computer - which is fatal because I always end up spending!
I can’t resist all the goodies, and then I usually go and buy more than I need just to get free postage.
I’ve got so much stuff that’s not even been used yet, I have to get the latest thing and then before I have chance to use it there’s another latest thing – so the last one gets put in a drawer and forgotten …and so it goes on!!
It’s a good job it’s all hidden away in the attic is all I can say lol, it’s for my eyes only!!
This is my card for Lili’s Little Fairies this week, the challenge is ‘anything goes’ so I used one of the little mice cards I made for our showroom at work. I’m such a fan of these little mice although I’m in 2 minds about this colour scheme?
The card is core’dinations with glamour dust to edge it, spellbinders and doohickey dies.
The corner is a punch from Whimsy, I’ve been searching high and low to try and find the discontinued Quick Kutz die in this design but they’re like rocking horse poo!!
The flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts which you can now get in the Lili of the Valley showroom – we’re the only store in the UK to actually stock these so we’re thrilled, I know a few of you don’t like shopping online so if your near enough to Leeds then do try to stop by and pay us a visit.
Right better get myself ready for work, my daughter left something in her car last night that I needed and she couldn’t be bothered getting it. She said she’d get it this morning and she’s going to regret it now when I get her out of bed and she has to go down the garden in this weather!!
Have a good day everyone xx

Good evening everyone, I’ve not been on for a few days – life seems to have a nasty habit if getting in the way of blogging sometimes doesn't it!!
This card is one I made for Lili’s Little Fairies. I love the Lili of the Valley boy designs, they’re so cute and this card was perfect for my nephew.
These fabulous papers are from the Best Creation ‘rock star’ pad, they’re perfect for boys cards.
The star border is magnolia doohickey and I used core’dinations card.
That’s it …easy!
