Good morning lovely crafty friends, I hope this finds you all well?

I’m trimmed up and ready for the big day, Keith and I are going into Leeds this afternoon for a bit of last minute shopping but I’ve done most of it online so it’s just an excuse really to go and have a look at the Christmas lights in town. The Salvation Army band usually play at this time of year which makes for a lovely festive atmosphere. We’ll have a wander up to the German Market and get something to eat and maybe go to the cinema so it will be a nice change




Oh, before my cards…  don’t forget the lovely new images from Lili of the Valley are out today!


I’m on a new Design Team for Leonie, it’s not really official yet as there haven’t been any new products but these are some cards I did using her dies and stamps that were out earlier this year….

Leonie - funky flowers wm


These are small cards, 12cm square and I’m liking this size recently. You can get all the products from Crafters Companion or Hochanda and there are some great offers on the ranges at the moment.


Have a fabulous weekend everyone

Update and some new mice!

Good morning lovely crafters, hope you are all well
Another blog break for me, it wasn’t planned, just seemed to happen!
It’s nearly Christmas, can you actually believe it? I’m going to put my tree up today, they seem to get earlier and earlier every year and there were quite a few lights around here in November which is wayyy to soon for me! I had good intentions this year of making all my cards and haven’t done any – that didn’t quite go to plan, in fact I haven’t made any cards at all for a while
I’ve been trying some mixed media which I’m loving, it’s so different from the cards and stamping I do but is right up my street. I’ve done some workshops with the gorgeous Marta Lapkowska and Azoline and learnt so much …

Because I haven’t been making many cards I really enjoyed having a play with these cute mice from Lili of the Valley which are due to be released on the 16th. They will be in rubber and digi along with some sentiment sets, I like using digital images because you can edit them as I did with the text here which I put on the tags…
Delightful Daisies
Three Kind Mice Key
Magic Flute
Aren’t they adorable!
There will be loads of sneaky peeks over the next week so you can see the new images. There are some new trios too which are always popular and I think you’ll love them all!
Right I’m going to dig my decorations out, have a fabulous Saturday whatever you are up to
