I love this image, i think it's so cute :) and i had to buy the sentiments to go with it which includes the "it's raining love and birthday wishes" as it goes with this stamp and a penny black one i have with an unbrella too :)

Ive used 2 whiff of joy stamps, copics to colour, Clare curd papers, paper flowers & brads.

Good morning all,

Just enjoying my coffee and peace before i go and pick Kobe up and go for a nose around the shops.

The big shot is great, so much better than the red sizzix i have. With it being 6 inchs wide you can get most of you cards through it for doing embossing folders, ect :) it's great! Wish i had of invested in one sooner...... wanted one for ages!! :P and i love my hello kitty die i bought too :) I'm thinking of passing my old sizzix onto eloise as it's easy to use and i think she'll like it :) i have a butterfly die she can have and she can use any of my other ones too so she'll enjoy it :)

Im not allowed to spend any pennies now..... got to use what i already have!! Been having a little sort out aswell, listing some old things on ebay. Out with the old and in with the new!
Hope you all have a nice day

Bank holiday weekend...

Good morning all,

Well it's been a long weekend already and it's only Sunday!

The kids didn't go to their dads this week as he was going away for the weekend..... alright for some, isn't it.

I bought Kobe a wrestling ring the other day, he loves it. Hasn't stopped playing with it :) Ive told Eloise she can pick something upto £10 and theres noting she wants, lol :)

Im just trying to do a card for a swap on the do crafts site, a card kit swap. I make a card and send that along with all the things i used to make it to someone and see what they make out of it :)

Not sure of our plans today, having tea mt my mums though, a nice roast dinner, yummy :)

I decided to buy a sizzix big shot the other day. I already have the old red sizzix but it's not big enough for embossing some cards and doing other things on it to ive upgraded :) Gonna make sure im happy with my new one and see about selling my old one.

Ive also got some new nestabilities, the set of large ovals :) been wanting those for a while now.

Need to have a big sort out and get rid of some of my old things.... need to start using some of my old things too!!

I have a draw which is about 8inchs high which is full to the brim of 12x12 paper, plus a folder full of it too..... i need to use it!! I aso have a draw full of 6x6 and 8x8 pads too... i just keep buying more and more :S

That might be my task for the next few weeks, slowy sorting things out and using them!!

Hope you have a nice bank holiday weekend :)
