I know it's not right, but it's ok

Well I am still frustrated tinkering with the ol blog and I can't seem to get the width right but hey-ho!  If I waited until it was perfect I wouldn't post at all!  Anyhoo some serious love and adoration for the Vine Street embossing folder from Stampin' Up!  Goodness, to say it is super gorgeous doesn't seem enough.  Combined with some serious peakage of framelits and dies from the upcoming Spring/Summer mini catalogue (launching on the 1st of Feb) too - I think I need a lie down lol!

Have a great day & see you soon x

Ah! last of the Christmas sparkle for you today.  This is a quick set I made for my Mum as a pre-Christmas gift.  I finally got to use the nifty A5 tins I have been hoarding for a while now.

I managed to squeeze 10 cards in the tin and my Mum loved them and knowing her she is hording them!  (do you think it's hereditary lol).  Anyhoo I will be back soon with some sneaky sale-a-bration cards from Stampin' Up!

Have a great day x

Wow and a happy new year everyone!  I can't believe how long I've been away and instead of tales of woe and and moans of crazy busyness I will show you some craft (after all that's what we're here for lol!).  These little numbers are from my 'piercing' class from the end of last year where I traditionally have a calender project.  I must completely give thanks to the the lovely Clair for her fabulous inspiration of the calendar.

I will be back sooner I promise with a couple of belated Christmas projects and talking of the festive season I was completely spoiled and blown away with all the gorgeous hand made cards, gifts and felty-liscious things my dear friends made for me - thank you :D

See you soon x
