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

Red Hot.

When i bought this stamp from Whipper Snapper curiosity got the better of me and i googled it to see if there was such a society.Apparently there is a red HAT society which started in America for women in their 50s.It was started by a lady who decided to celebrate her 50th birthday by wearing a gaudy purple and red outfit from a charity shop. Her freinds did the same and it all started there.They are now all over the world. Imagine my suprise when on a visit to my local which is a hotel, a load of women appeared from upstairs all dressed in red and purple with hats just like my card.They were indeed members of the red hat society on a weekend break.There is also a pink hat society for women approaching 50.I was well miffed, if i'd have known they were going to be there i could have sold a load of cards!!
