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

Well we'll just have to starve then won't we!!!

I've just been into town. I bought a couple of things from Wilkinsons then ambled down to WHS to see if there was any bargains downstairs. I wasn't in there for long but when i came out the street had been cordoned off and there where police cars and fire engines. I couldn't get through to go to Tesco so i went up onto the walls to go around the other way. I dropped down from the walls (via the steps of course) to be told that all the shops were closing. Apparently the pavement had exploded outside M&S and everywhere was being evacuated in case it was gas. So tea tonight will have to be a right mish mash of whatever i can find in the kitchen.
 Anyway, here's a card.
 Nasty dark day today so the pic isn't too good. Both stamps are by Art Impressions and the paper is Papermania retro florals.

I paper pieced the dress with a bit of scrap paper and the flower is a sizzix emboslits die i've had for ages. I've got a Wizard die cutter and i'm very lazy with it, i hardly ever use it. I need to cut a load of nestie circles to stamp on so they'll be there all ready done but then i'll probably be too lazy to cut the scalloped circles to go with them. I should spend an afternoon cutting loads out in different colours, it seems so much hassle to get it out to do just one.
Right, first stop is the kitchen in search of tonights concoction then i'm off into my den.  See you soon. Di.xx

Edit. Someone has left a comment asking how i do my sentiments to print off the computer.Well, when i first got my lappy i decided to dump everything off it that i didn't need to make more space for photo's, i have thousands from SCS and such like. The first things to be dumped were the games and music programmes and as i didn't know where to start with them the "word" type stuff had to go too.So all i'm left with is My Craft Studio.I'm so technically challenged that this is just about all i can manage to use anyway, and it suits my needs for now.

  3. Hi Di

    A great card and a great story too!!

    I love paper piecing .. .. I think it brings stamps to life in such a different manner (as well as using up a teeny tiny piece of all that scrap paper we all have).

    I am on a mission to try and use some of mine up.

    Sounds like you are beans on toast tonight!

    At least it will be quick and you will be able to get into your den faster.

    Love Jules xx
