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

Perfect Men.

If only hey! Speedy suits me fine though, he's a big softy and as sweet as any gingerbread man, i can live without the shape and the tan,lol. Well, i've been playing willy nilly yesterday with no pressure to get something ready to blog and i got a few things made.I bought this little gingerbread man stamp from Elzybells 2 weeks ago then wished i'd bought the little verse to go with it, so i ordered it and it arrived on wednesday.
There is a link to Elzybells sale in a post further down the page, hurry though, stuff is running out fast.

I'm going to to loads of these for my bulk chistmas cards, as you can see i've not been too fussy with the colouring as they'll be straight in the bin in January. The card bases are 5"x5".

Remember this tag stamp i got for 50p at WHS last week? Well, i saw some mini gingerbread men at M&S so i'm going to get some a bit nearer the time and put them into cello bags with a tag to give as stocking fillers.I like to give certain customers a little something and these should give the old dears a bit of a laugh. I chalked it up as it looked a bit stark,it's a bit more sagey green than it looks in the pic.
I saved this as a draft last night so all i have to do now is..................

.............The friday weigh in. 9st, 7lb...that's a pound back on!!!!! This pound has appeared overnight. I've not had anymore calories than usual, i spent all yesterday afternoon trudging round shops trying to find a wedding outfit and this week i've walked 28 miles on my treadmill as fast as i can go without actually running as it's bad for the old knees. There's only one thing for it.......i'll have to start walking on my hands!!  Just joking, maybe 2 pounds will disappear just as mysteriously next week..............

  2. Hi Diane
    Just found you on the Docrafts website, these are great and love the sentiment.

  3. Hi Di

    Cute little gingerbread men and lovely verse.

    I keep going over to Elzybells and choosing things and then being strong and emptying my basket. Just know I will regret it!!!

    You are working so hard to lose weight - I hope you reached your goal soon.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    Love Jules xx
