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

No milk today milk carton.

Just a quickie post to show you a short notice gift i made for a friend of Speedy's who was having an impromptu retirement drink at the local pub. He is, or was a milkman. so it had to be a milk carton didn't it.
The stamps are Elzybells . The milk carton instructions are HERE but i altered mine to come out bigger. Then i had to find something to go in it. Hey... Crawfords Malted milk biscuits with the funny captions.
The sentiment on the tag could only have come fom the bowels of my computer,lol. I also made a matching card but didn't have time to take a piccy.


  1. oh what a fab idea,love it,and he will too,

  2. Trust you! you have a special talent for whitty gifts! I have to say though that this one "takes the biscuit" Pure genious! You could also have used those little milk bottle sweets. Hope you're doing well,Julie.x
