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

It's begining to look a lot like........

........CHRISTMAS!!!!  Last year i didn't start my christmas cards until september and was i sorry.There's no natural light after 3 o'clock and it's impossible to get colours right even with a Craft lamp. So this year i'm starting now. My cardmaking ground to a halt yesterday when a big fat queen wasp appeared in my room. (Not that i'm in any position to call anyone fat)! I sprayed it with flyspray and had to wait for it to finish break dancing on my desk, then i scooped it up with a sheet of paper and put it out of the window.Here's the first of my cards.
This is my favourite penny black stamp along with the little dog with the tie, mind you i have just ordered some more so they could be in for some competition. I made loads with this stamp last year. The paper is My Minds Eye bloom and grow.

The mouse is coloured with promarkers with a bit of glitter glue on the hat. Punched snowflakes, gems and a computer sentiment add the finishing touches.
Right quick hoover around and mop of the kitchen floor and off into my den. Thanks for visiting.  Di. xx
