Good morning crafters, we’ve had a heavy snowfall overnight but I think compared to the rest of the Country we’ve got off quite lightly. I hope it’s not affecting you too much and that you are able to stay in keep warm. Good that it’s on a weekend really when there is no work or school so I think the disruption is slightly less than it might have been
There was a story on the news about a headmaster who slept in his school on Thursday night so that he could keep it open …I bet he was really popular with the kids lol
You probably know about out new Lili of the Valley Stamp launch on the 30th January, well we were able to get them ready early so Lisa and Laila thought it would be a nice idea to release 6 of them early so you can get them in plenty of time for making your Valentines cards
There are 6 super cute Romantic Couples and you can get from Monday midday on the website. If you buy all 6 they are on special offer for £24 …and we still have free postage for a limited time so don’t miss this great deal
This one is called Carriage For Two and is one of my favourites…
I’ve been having trouble uploading my pictures and had to switch to Google Chrome, it works fine now but the pictures don’t seem very sharp …or maybe it’s just me that needs to put my glasses on lol
I’ve used some tags from our Sentiment Tags set
The papers are K & Co Smitten which a fabulous collection, I do like the weight of the K & Co papers, they are a bit more expensive than some others but really lovely quality. Because they’re double sided you use them all because if you don’t like one (which is inevitable with a pad I find) you can always use the other side
The chipboard hearts are Maya Road, they were pale pink and just inked over them with Worn Lipstick so they matched the papers
The flowers are a selection from Wild Orchid Crafts and you can also get them from The Ribbon Girl or from our shop in Leeds if you are near enough to visit. We’re the only actual shop in the UK to stock them and I know not everyone likes to shop online
The flatback gems and the little heart charm (which you can’t see very well) are both from The Ribbon Girl as is the organza ribbon. The ribbon goes round the back and then ties at the side, the front of the card is narrower than the back
I can’t resist adding a bit of glitter just to finish off and I used Stickles on this one
That’s it from me, I’m hoping to spend some time crafting today and I’m just itching to get using these new stamp designs they are so cute!
I’ll be back tomorrow with my card for the Ribbon Girl January colour challenge …enjoy your Saturday!
