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

50th Birthday Card.

How are we all today then, all done and dusted?  I've completely finished with the shopping , everything wrapped and ready to go. The ham is simmering on the stove, my little balti dishes are wafting Christmas spice everywhere. I'm just taking a little break from blitzing the flat. I don't know why because it will look like a bomb has hit it half way through Christmas morning anyway,lol.
 I had an order for a birthday card, such a pleasant change from all the Christmas stuff i've been churning out. The chocolate factory is now closed,lol.
I love this stamp because it lends itself to a bit of paperpiecing, and she can have a new frock every time i stamp her. It is by Art Impressions Not the least expensive at nearly £15 but i've used it loads. Finished with a few flowers and some leaves with my X Cut punch. The brads in the flower centers are papermania.
 Time to carry on with the chores now as i'm working tomorrow, woe betide Speedy if he messes it up while i'm out. Only working until 3 0'clock, then a couple of festive drinks on the way home. The sleigh will be having it's final outing and is loaded with smutty and respectable goodies.
Enjoy your Christmases.    ( I was still at target weight this morning but i'm going to totally go off the rails for the next 2 weeks).    See you soon.  xxx
