I'm back!

Hello my lovelies - I've been away from my blog for so long, hope you haven't forgotten about me in my absence?! I'm pleased to report that my cold has pretty much gone and I now have a brand spanking new oven and fridge-freezer in the kitchen! Woo-hoo! No more warm yoghurts and cold dinners! The only problem is, I've been used to setting the oven to 250oC, chucking whatever needs cooking in and then wandering off for a couple of hours.... however, I fear things are going to start getting burnt if I do that now! ;o)

The upside of this is that I now have a bit more time for crafting! I made the most of it this weekend and managed to make 3 whole cards, and was helped along greatly due to the fact that my latest Dies to Dies For DT package arrived Saturday morning :o). I also only have to work Monday & Tuesday this week and then I will have 8 whole days off! Can't wait, even though my dreaded MOT is booked in on Thursday...... If it goes well and I get away with £100 or less, I can buy more craft stuff. If not, I am on a serious stash diet this month!

Anyway, enough of my waffle! Here is the first card I made this weekend using this gorgeous High Hopes stamp from Tracy.


Yes, I've used my Bloom and Grow digi papers again, I'm slightly addicted to them. Having said that, I got some more bargains on Saturday morning when I realised that Sweet Shoppe Designs have a half price sale on! I know I am saving for my MOT but Several of the ones on my wish list made it in to the sale bin so it seemed rude not to get them! So, I spent £10 for £20 worth of products. How thrifty am I?!

Goodie List........
Stamps: High Hopes - Jenny Glow Bugs available from Dies to Die For
Digital Paper: Bloom & Grow by Zoe Pearn.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Ribbon, button and flower from stash.

Hope you are all doing well and that you are looking forward to a few days off over Easter. I promise that I will be visiting you all soon! Right now though, I'd best go get ready for work!

Lots of love,
Pin It
