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

Gratuity box.

I knew it wouldn't be long before i made another box. We went to Speedy's sisters for a little get together a couple of saturdays ago and i've just got round to making her a little thank you gift.

   The box is 4" square and 2" high. The paper is papermania creative tones.The cow and sentiment stamps are Ellzybels, really simple to colour. You can't see it very well in the photo but i went round the image with pink chalk.

Now this girl is a woman after my own heart, i was going to put a bag of Thorntons chocs in here from Tesco but the shelf was empty. That was a life saver because she's dieting monday to friday just like me. I remembered some bath goodies i bought, also from Tesco a while back and thought they would be a better idea. They were in gift sets in the sale but i split the set and just used 2 of the items with some pink tissue paper. Hats off to Pam because she's lost two stone on this "weekend off" diet. It takes longer to get the weight off but you don't feel so deprived and believe me the weekend can't come quick enough!
I'm off into town later to get my sister a pressie for her 60th birthday on saturday. Speedy will be with me so no doubt we'll be walking home via several pubs....................it's a hard life...............
