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

Gingerbread what?!!

I've been looking for some mini gingerbread men for a while. I saw some in M&S in the summer and a gift was born in my head. They were in cello bags and enough to make 2 of the gift ideas. So i went to work on some labels with this free digi image from Pink Gem designs. I went back to buy my gingerbread men to find they had turned into posh little boxes of 9 for Christmas. So i shopped around and found boxes of 30 for £1.40 at Tesco but i had too much to carry and didn't want to crush them. Great, carry on with the tags i thought.
And here they are, all ready to go. So yesterday i went back to Tesco to pick up my men. I was inspecting them to make sure there were no broken ones when it dawned on me that they were actually gingerbread santas and snowmen ! Eek !! Who's air brained idea was that i wonder. So i'm still without men. Someone on the docrafts forum said they had them at Sainsburys so i'll have to make a special trip next week. Meanwhile this is all i've got to show you. Sorry peeps but i'll show you the finished bags as soon as i get my men.
Edit. I've just tested my link and the page no longer exists so i guess the image was available for a limited time. Hopefully some of you may have already grabbed it.

  5. these are brilliant di.love the image and am looking forward to seeing them with your perfect man :D

  6. They are lovely Di and will be perfect when you find some little men. Tesco do usually sell mini ginger bread men(I get them for the kids) but I guess they have changed them for the Christmas period.
    Janet (pink gem) now has the digi for sale at her shop http://www.pinkgemdesigns.com/catalog/gingerbread-digi-stamp-p-507.html She usually gives them away for free for a short time then adds them to the store. Hope this helps xx Jenny xx

    hugs, annie x
