My Mum's Craft Shop - Anything Goes Challenge

This is my entry into the My Mum’s Craft Shop ‘Anything goes’ April Challenge.

It is a notelet set made using the My Favourite Things Rainbow and flat bottomed clouds dies (incidentally bought from MMCS), 300gsm Kraft/Recycled cardstock, Papermania glitter paper and various textured cardstocks. I have made the whole thing from scratch (including the envelopes) and its now one of my favourite projects I’ve ever made, I simply adore MFT!!!!!

Brand New LOTV Stamp

Hi Everyone!

I went to the LOTV open day on Sat 11th August and had an absolutely fab time, could have bought up the entire shop! In fact i got a bit too excited and bought the same stamp twice, 'how did that happen?' i hear you cry, well i also took part in a colouring class with the fantastic Bev Rochester which was just over 2 hrs long  and managed to forget that i bought this *sending love* stamp before the class, duh! Anyhoooo i am selling it for £4.50 including postage, if you are interested please email me on

Long Time no Craft!

Well Well Well! It's been a long long time since my last post, oops so much for last year's new year's resolution!

I seemed to have been without my Mojo for most of last year, I didn't entirely but i mainly just made cards and presents for family and friends. Anyhoooooo i thought it was about time to get back on the wagon and post something and where better to start than with a Challenge!

So I made this card for a colleague at work who is about to go on maternity leave (oops should have cut the OH out oh well - that's Sam btw)...

Ok so these are the ingredients:

Saturated Canary Image - Ice Cream and Pickles (coloured with promarkers)
Ribbon - blue - rescued from a box of chocs, red - ikea
Martha stewart branch punch and green card
green craft wire
red stickles glitter glue
red and white pearls
red and blue Wild Orchid Crafsts flowers
nesties and x-cut label dies
corded card from papermill (blue and red card coloured with promarkers)

i am entering this card into the Passion for Promarkers challenge 134 - New Beginnings

thanks for looking, happy crafting :-D

Craft Fair

Good Morning!

i thought it was about time i posted something, i have loads of pics of cards that i've done recently but i just haven't loaded them on to the computer yet, hopefully the forthcoming long weekend will give me the opportunity!

So for now it's just a short post about the craft fair i did on Saturday, the pic below isn't great as i had to take it with my phone because in my fluster i forgot my proper camera.

i'd been invited for a meal to Northcote Manor (in Lancashire - run by Nigel Haworth who some of you may have seen on the Great British Menu - i love that programme) but couldn't go because i'd already booked and paid for a table at the craft fair, well... i spent the first couple of hours wishing i'd gone for the meal instead, our table seemed to get completely bypassed i was so disheartened! luckily the table only cost £10 (originally £12 but a friend gave me £2 for a small section) so i thought it wouldn't be too bad if i didn't make any money. Luckily though it seemed to pick up a little after lunch and by the end of the day i had made £17, it doesn't sound like much but i was chuffed that i'd made the money back for the table and the extra £7 was a bonus, but even better than that i then tripled my takings (to £21) because my OH's brother and girlfriend were visiting on their way back from the Lakes and she bought £14 worth of cards!!!!

Goodness, so much for the short post!!!!

Happy crafting
