Yummy Elzybells

I've always loved Elzybells stamps but found that they were a little bit on the large side for cards. Well, that's all changed as they now do smaller stamps that are perfect for cards.

You can also get the stamps unmounted so they're very easy to store ;o)

Pink Girl

I loved making this card for my cousin's daughter. She'll be 10 at the end of the month and loves pink !!!
Pink and brown - another fave colour combo

Silver Wedding Anniversary

It's really busy at work again so I've had to make a point of sitting down and making a card.

I made this one for a special lady and her fab OH.

My yummy new Stampin Up goodies with another one of my fave colour combo's - aqua and brown.

Pink Glitter Gals Challenge

It was my teams (the fantastic Pink Glitter Gals) turn to set the Weekly Challenge over on UKScrappers.

What we came up with was:

1. Use our chosen Becky Fleck round page map
2. Celebration or Achievement theme
3. 5 of something
4. Use pink and glitter

We really enjoyed setting the challenge. 5 of us did our example pages on our Center Parcs weekend.

and here's my page :o)

Very proud of my niece for getting through having braces. She had them for just over 18 months and she really persevered - including having implants in her gums - ouch!

I'm done with male cards .....

...... well until my dad's birthday in October. This is the last one for my cousin. Thankfully, he's into golf and football (well he supports Southampton so saying that he's into football might not be accurate!!!)

Fantastic birthday

Well despite working on my birthday, I had a brilliant day :o) I was made to feel very very special by my fab friends (((hugs)))

My aunt and uncle also came up from Eastbourne for the day and bought me loads of cards and a yummy handbag. In April, I gave loads of my unloved crafty stash to my cousins daughter. Well for my birthday, she gave me a gorgeous card and ---- her mum and dad gave me an equally gorgeous card which she'd made and charged them £1 for LOL

Apparently, I'm very hard to buy for so I got money from immediate family which I spent (+ a bit extra) yesterday at Capture The Magic.

My fab bargains - 12x12 clear storage trays - £2 a tray - I got 10 but now think I should have got 12 as 6 stacked fit perfectly in the cubes of my Ikea Expedit unit.


These metallic alphas were originally £12.50 each. I got them for £3 each - BARGAIN!!!


This is the rest of my birthday stash - stamps, papers, bits n bobs, papers and ummmm more papers LOL
