I am taking offers for them, I know they are being sold brand new for £2.05 each, so ANY offers on them will be considered. Please email me on : if interested. I can only consider UK enquires and payment by pay-pal.

Farnborough Show & Cards

Good afternoon, hope you are having a lovely Sunday? I just wanted to share some photos from the 'Make It' Farnborough show where I have been demoing all weekend. Here is a rare photo of me (not a great fan of having my photo taken lol!) and one of Steve busy with customers. We sold out of so many products, so well done to you if you managed to get what you wanted. What a show! It was my first time there and wow, it won't be my last, so much to see and purchase lol! It was manic on Friday and yesterday but such great fun. The highlight of which was meeting my lovely friend Brenda, who I have been blogging with for over a year now and also catching up with some lovely crafting friends, thanks to all that stopped by to say Hi! I managed to grab a few fantastic bargains as well - too many to mention, (don't tell David lol!).

Here are just a few cards that I made whilst there, more to follow.

Little Claire Large Flower decoupaged twice on peach check paper and Brown Bazzill . MS large heart punch and Doodlebug bling - bling!

Using the same LC Large Flower onto b/w dot paper, black & white bazzill with MS heart punch and SU lush black stones and sentiment.

ATC Bliss

Good evening, thought I would post my recent makes whilst watching my local footie team CRAWLEY TOWN play Manchester United, am trying to take my mind off of the game but wow it seems really strange, saying the teams name next to Crawley's lol! Am not normally a footie fan, but have to cheer on our local team. At the moment, MU are winning one nil, but Crawley are battling on and hopefully we will triumph!

Have loved playing with this new freebie stamp set that I got from Stamping Up, I treated myself to lots of lovely bits and bobs and got them free. I have used my Distress Inks and some small pearls but the stamps have done the rest. Have taken a photo of them on my mat, to show the colours up.

Anyway, am entering my ATC's, into the following challenges :

Moving Along With The Times - Theme - 'Anything But a Card'
Allsorts Challenge - Theme -Inspired By Nature

Thanks to all of you who have sent me wonderful messages, emails and texts after my accident, my fingers have healed very quickly and although a little sore still, are nearly completely back to normal, so back to crafting this weekend.

Enjoy the match if your watching it, and come on Crawley Town!

Good morning, it's Wednesday again, so that means time to share your stash and workdesks in Blogland. To join in this madness every Wednesday, pop on over to Julia @ Stamping Ground and leave your blog details so that we can come and see yours lol!

Look, my desk is sooooo tidy, yes it does make a change, I love to work in chaos! On my desk, one very tidy tote, one quite tidy basket, LC stamp basket and my mat is clear, lol! I have had a card-free week this weekend, have been enjoying having my hubs back at home after nearly a month working abroad, so now he is going back to work today, am off to try and do some cards. It may take me a while, as I burnt my fingers on the iron yesterday and as the photo shows, they are dressed at present, I have to go back to the hospital to have them re-dressed today, but am determined just to craft in some way.

I went to the Brighton craft show last week with my friend, the super lovely Cary and we had a fun time. I also saw loads of lovely blogging ladies and some old friends. I did buy quite a few nice craft bits, here are just three of which below. Forgot to show you the lovely Aquamarker set that I go too, havent had chance to play with them yet, so watch this space!

My last picture is of my lovely girlie Georgia who took her Promise at Guides this Monday, I just love this photo of her, she is growing up so fast, she will be turning eleven in two weeks time. She is so proud of her Guide Promise badge.

Right, off to the hospital, have a lovely day crafty peeps, take care!

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!!

Good morning, well its been a few weeks since I joined in with Julia over at Stamping Ground and I have missed it. Its a great way to meet lots of likeminded mad crafters and share your stash on a weekly basis. I have recently made some big changes in my weekly routines and stepped down from most of my DT posts due to work and family committments and although I really miss them, its been really nice to take a deep breath and craft just for me.

To my desk, well the whole room is a complete mess lol! My trolley is still full after my demos at Stevenage, I really must get in there today and get tidying. I did pick up some lovely stamps and dies at the show and also I recently treated myself to lots of SU bits and have loved playing with all of my lovely new stash. So anyway, lots to see even if its in a mess!

Yesterday, my kitten CoCo had her operation and bless her she is really sore and has a plastic collar on which is making her walk backwards, only another nine days to go until I can take it off. Lots of cuddles and naps later, she seems to be getting back to her old self and causing mischief, lol! Here's hoping that all of the local toms will now go away and pester another female!Anyway, thought I would share a photo of her with you.

Busy day ahead, Jess has her retainer fitting, have to do town and some food shopping, then am going to spoil myself with some more crafting, heaven!

Have a lovely day whatever you do!
