Scanner Problems and a busy week!

Had a really busy week running the girls around the place. Took them bowling with my bessie mate Sharon, which was a real hoot, bowling balls flying everywhere!! My scanner is poorly or I just don't know how to work it properly. My dear boss Geoff (thankies) gave me lots of ideas, all of which didn't work. Have even tried to download camera images, its official I am a techo-phobe! Luckily my dear hubby is on the case, I have so many cards to download, have been de-stressing by eating chocolate, drinking lots of wine and making Christmas cards. Loving the new 'Penny Black' and 'Hero Arts' Christmas stamps and really enjoying stamping again after a 'drought'. Lots and lots of lovely new stamps to buy at, go visit xx

Love from us all

Am loving the new buttons I purchased from, they are from A Rhonna Christmas collection. First Christmas card finished, now I can go have a large glass of wine!

Christmas Cards

I am fed up ranting about them so decided to start making my Christmas cards. Took to the girls shopping today for school uniform, stressful or what!! So came home and decided to de-stress and get started. Have decided not to have a colour scheme this year, will go for any nice papers and play. Will post the results when my scanner starts working again. xx

Seize the Cupcake!

Another waterfall card using the Hero Arts clear stamps. Love the papers used. I used lots of jewels and decoupaged the cakes on each section. My friend loved this so much, she made me make up five to give to her family/friends.

For Trudi and Tracy

I recently made versions of this card for my cousin Trudi and work colleague Tracy. I tried to keep these simple and they didn't take long to create. I was really happy with the results. Visit for products.

Christmas cards

Is it just me, or are people making their Christmas cards earlier and earlier? There are lots of lovely xmassie bits in the shop and I must get organised as last year I ended up buying a load of cards as I ran out of time. I am going to keep my designs simple but effective, combining stamping and Quickutz my thinks! I am really getting into this blogging lark, great to put thoughts on screen. Big thanks to the lovely Kim Fee who got me into blogging and who continues to inspire me.

Tilda with flowers
