Hi everyone

Sorry, but it's too nice outside to be sitting at my "crafting spot" ... the view from my kitchen (crafting) table is just too tempting ... summer seems to have come & I shall have to find some "outdoor" pursuits today!

Meantime, why not enjoy a stroll thru' to the garden and see if you agree with me!

Take care and enjoy the sunshine!

... and another

Hi again ... said there might be another card today! As I'd stamped two hearts with the Simply Said stamp set (simply divine if you ask me!) thought I might as well carry on making another card. This time I've used the Flower Fantasy Window Sheet in the aperture from the Cottage Wall collection of Designer Papers. I love this designer paper and need to order some more as it's limited availability until stocks last and I only ordered a sample pack of 6" x 6" papers - so they definitely wont last very long!

Couldn't resist the three little hearts to finish off the card (you've probably noticed that I like the number three and the theme seems to run through a lot of my cards!)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Do let me have your comments (good or bad) as it's always nice to know who's visiting!
Just must tidy up now and get outside in the sunshine - looks like a good afternoon to get the lawnmower out or ... there again ... the hammock beckons!

Hi ... another card using two of the new colours again - soft suede & rich razzleberry. This time I've used the Simply Said stamp with the lovely large heart punch I managed to purchase before it stops becoming available! I'm off to do a bit more stampin - you might even get another card today!

In Love with Rich Razzleberry ...

Hi everyone

So sorry it's been quite a while since I last posted on my blog but unfortunately I had a fall just before the Bank Holiday weekend and I've been having problems with my left hand/wrist since then ... thus no blogging! However, I couldn't resist giving my card making a jump start again today after a couple of week's rest as I got two deliveries ... one from Stampin' Up! and a lovely sample pack of the three new inks and DP from my upline Michelle. They are such fantastic new colours.

For my first two cards I've used Rich Razzleberry with the Designer Paper Cottage Wall. I love these so much that I can't wait to try some more tomorrow!
