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

Happy Birthday Speedy !

Speedy's a big birthday boy today, big kid as he is. I made his card ages ago, it's this one but with "to my lovely husband" on a printed banner along the bottom.I gave him money in his card as he couldn't decide what he wanted but in true child fashion he likes to have things to open so i got him a few bits.and made this.
I got the instructions from SCS here. Don't be tempted (like i was) and try to make the base bigger as the 12" paper won't fit around it. It may look small but when you've made the bag part there's plenty of room. I put a bags worth of mini daim bars (Tesco) in this one. The paper is from my DCWV stack number 6.I haven't got one of those fancy tag punches so i used a scalloped square with a circle punched in the middle.The sentiment stamp is by Inkadinkado.
I also made him a big jar of shallots in balsamic vinegar which he loves. We are about to have smoked salmon and champagne for lunch ( something we always do on our birthdays) and later on , about tea timish we'll be off for a couple of drinkies and to the local Tapas Bar. It's a hard life...........................
