Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

More notecards.

Yesterday i was toying with the idea of nipping to Hobbycraft (just to have a look you understand),but I managed to resist and decided to go to Abakhan instead. It's only a short walk fom home and far less dangerous as they don't have much card stash, mainly ribbon and a few embellies etc. So there i was mooching around with a couple of spools of ribbon in my hand and i spotted a few clear stamp sets plonked in a pile on a shelf in true Abakhan style. They weren't much cop except for three Kanban sets.Up to now i've always associated Kanban with "topper" style kits on shopping channels. I bought this one and another one which i'll show you another time. I made another quickie notelet set but my big mistake was to stamp my tree in olive green.I have absolutely NO paper or card in olive green so i spent ages trawling through my stash and ended up with dark red.Next time i think i'll do the trees in grey to give me more scope.Ichalked the edges of the images,2 in green and the other 2 in dark red.Now.....,i wonder how long i'll be able to resist that third set of stamps........Hmmmm.....


  1. wow these are gorgeous.looked at these stamps too but have resisted so far but you are seriously tempting me now.luv coops.xx

  2. A beautiful set of notecards, love the stamp to!

  3. I've had my eye on these stamps in my local craft shop - must admit the kanban name has sort of put me off up to now, but I really LOVE that tree! Might give in the next time I'm in the shop lol. Lisa x

    That's a gorgeous tree Diane - I don't think the olive green looks too bad with the red you have chosen. Very classy looking cards Linda xxx
