Busy busy busy

Yesterday was The Stamp Man open day, met some wonderful crafters "waves" ,new friends and old. This was my make and take project using the wonderful nestie stamps Jill has designed. These fit perfectly into the petite scalloped circle die. Working in monochrome is lovely one of my favourite colour combinations for sure. If you did come along then you will have bagged some huge bargains as Jill and Ian have been having a huge sort out of stock - the sale room was full to bursting which also spilled out into the shop too - amazing!
Now its not too late to pop along and bag the bargains as there are still lots left - the shop is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10-4 and Saturday 11-4. Keep an eye out for more open days too!
When I was tidying my stash away last night I found this bit of stamping I had done for a mini book but then changed colour scheme so I then turned it into a card. See the little blue heart? that's one of my bargains from yesterday. Stamped with coffee archival and a jump ring added its a perfect charm for a card or any other crafting project - this is one of the sale room bargains - about 20 of these little beauties in assorted colours, shapes and size for £1 - I know its a bargain aright! The rest of the card is made using stamps from Tim Holtz and off course distress inks a bit of layering and its ready to send to a cyber craft buddy who has been sending me lots of poppy cards and bits and bobs for the ladies group - Creative Crew - who should be ready to sell their cards via their own website very soon!
Today is a chill day - tidy up a little, catch up on the washing/ironing and a roast chicken dinner for tea with the family. Big news to celebrate - our Tom has got a job at last and starts on Monday - nothing flash but he will be employed so we are very thankful.
Our James had a successful "paid" gig last week too which went really well so he is really happy and in turn so are we :0)
Happy Sunday folks x

  4. I was one of the new crafters who made this make and take - I had bought this set of stamps at Harrogate and a few weeks ago, but had not had the opportunity to play with them - so I enjoyed myself.

  5. It was lovely seeing you yesterday. such a great make n take and card. I was hoping Belle would have liked to do one but I guess she was a bit off from being ill all week. She is still not quite right. Glad things are going well on the home front. Let me know when you guys want to get together for a crafting day. Take care. Angela
