Afternoon! What a cracker of a day! Have been out and about today, rushing about and not actually achieving much! About to attempt to make stroganoff for tea though which could be an absolute disaster as I am not a natural cook!!! Fingers crossed everyone!

I've had a wee play with the BEAUTIFUL Forever Friends nostalgia range for blokes. They are so pretty! Such gorgeous colours! First is an easel card...

Then an A5 ...love how these are so different and softer to the normal mens stuff...

I am going to be so upset when I use up this range, because I really struggle with mens cards normally!

And my folksy pick of the day My Pink Cow . Bought this brooch for my mum and it is just too cute for words! (Her logo's really fab too!)
Thats me for today...till soon , take care and keep smiling

Pampered Pets

Hi all! Enjoyed a fab week away for some R & R with Daisy for the first week of our school holidays. Was much needed and well enjoyed!!! Horse riding, a trip to Banburgh castle, swimming, another wee trip to Alnwick and just a lovely time! Came back to earth with a bump afterwards though, holiday cover and a ridiculously busy week at the shop! All good fun though! Here's some pics of samples I made using the Pampered Pet freebie from the Creativity mag. All I've added are some pearls, and white card stock...

I have to admit I'm not really a Pampered Pet kind of a person, but once I started working with these I really enjoyed it. They're actually really really pretty, beautiful muted colours and pretty images! Converted lol!

Here's my wee handmade recommendation of the day!
Wellydog Designs on folksy are brilliant...this is the necklace I received for mothers day (which I actually had my eye on to buy for my mum but it was sold lol!). I haven't taken it off since mothers day and its been well admired!
And this is the necklace I bought my mum for christmas...
I love this folksy shop, it's definately a firm favourite!

Thanks for looking everyone!

In the words of my 2 year old nephew, Later!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder (I hope!)

Hello strangers! Have really had my hands full recently so haven't been here for a while but will try and make up for that! We're off for a much needed break and rest this week and then will be back with plans for world domination :-D Have finally had some time to create so here are a couple of cards made from The papers are beautiful and here I've used my current favourite Tonic punch...

And as always I've used up my wee offcut from making the square card...

Next is a sweet treat using the free gift from
I've used co-ordination cardstock, distress ink, gems, promarkers and glitter glue...

It's mothers day this weekend and I decided to buy handmade this year! There is so much lovely stuff out there I've decided to start featuring some on my blog. First is this gorgeous dove from little house
Got a couple of different ones, both from Cath Kidson fabric and they're just too cute for words!

Thats me for today! Take care everyone!
