Crazy little thing called love




Good morning all, I am going to let you in on a little secret today and confess my love for, wait for it.... Stampin' Up!s mini glue dots lol!!!! I know how can someone love glue? ;D Well I have been crafting for the past say four years and you will all probably relate, I have tried a LOT of different types of glues. Although being in love with Stampin' Up! for two years and only a demo for six months I have only just placed an order for their mini glue dots as I had a mountain of glue supplies horded. What a revelation, so easy to place, super sticky and just a delight to have hanging round my crafty table. I can't seem to move without needing them now :D

Anyhoo small pleasures and all that :D Today's card is using my promotion stamp set, a flower for all seasons and I have to say this is becoming a firm favourite of mine too. I had forgotten how much I love to watercolour, even though I studied it , my favourites were flowers and landscapes :D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

This is so pretty, I love your watercolouring and also how you can use a small stamp on a card without it looking lost, something I struggle with.

p.s. haven't tried the glue dots yet, but I was like that with the sticky strip, it's fantastic & I wouldn't be without it now!

Very pretty card Emma. I know what you mean about glues, I have loads, each for a different job. I haven't tried the Su glue dots yet though.

Mini glue dots you say?? Well my choice of glue is my ATG gun, I feel like one of Charlie's Angels prancing around posing with it LOL!
Love your watercolouring - so very very pretty! Also love the layers of different coloured card - coordinates beautifully! Seriously, is there any end to your talents?!
Love,
