Bonding Time…



Good morning crafty friends, thanks for stopping by

Friday again already, can you believe it! We have had a few nice days this week so hopefully Spring is on the way. My neck is improving I think but it is slow (and expensive) progress. I’m itching to get out in the garden and do some tidying up but can’t at the moment so it will have to wait


I have news, I’ve joined Kitty and the DT over at My Mum’s Craft Shop. I’ve known Kitty for many years from when she was on the Lili of the Valley DT and she sells some fabulous goodies in her online store

I’ve been stamping for over 20 years and have seen so many new products come and go in all those years that it has to be something very special to get me excited. As soon as I saw the Dreamerland Crafts stamp range I loved them all, they are so cute!

I’ve chosen one called ‘Bonding Time’ for my first make and I think you’ll be seeing more of these from me. The characters are adorable, they are just a bit different from everything else that’s around which is quite an achievement at the moment in the saturated stamp market

As you know I’m a huge fan of patterned papers – the prettier the better! These are from a Carta Bella pad called ‘Flora’. There are always a couple of sheets that you’re not so keen on in the collections so I love that these are double sided and I’ll be using every single one, they are really lovely

The sentiment is also from the pad which is very handy, I just added the paw print with a Memory Box die

I also used Lil’ Inkers sun, Memory Box puffy clouds and Joy Crafts grass dies


Do have a peek at My Mum’s Craft shop, the Spring stock from all your favourite brands just arrived and there is also a blog here with loads of inspiration for using the products from the team


That’s it from me, thanks so much for all your lovely comments

Have a great weekend everyone
