Formerly known as Pink Poison has landed in the UK at http://www.diestodiefor.co.uk/ Apparently they are waiting on more as their order has been despatched in a few parcels instead of one. So if its not in stock it may well be coming soon.
Keep looking out for them and if you do order please tell them stampingcaz sent ya!
These are the two that found their way to me, they are BIGGER than I thought! But fantastically so.. nice size for the 6 x 6 cards I make.
Saleabration here in the UK is nearly halfway through. Spend £45 with Stampin' Up! UK and choose a FREE set from their flyer (can be viewed at www.stampinup.co.uk)
Ones that caught my eye are ....

Mondays Must not miss it is a lady Erica's Blog http://blogje-van-eer.blogspot.com/
She makes the most beautiful cards, a lot of Magnolia which of course I love and she creates fun little stories for the girls on the cards, I really do love reading them ;0) So pop on over and have a read and meet all the girls.
Update of last nights walk. It was a walk from Reigate Hill carpark to the top of Reigate Hill, through the pitch dark woods, up to the hill to see the view, the stars and most importantly roll down the crater! So we walked, Oh yeah, I didnt tell you did I? I decided I was missing out and just before Darren left ran around for clothes and wellies for me and Caiden and we went along. I am glad I did. It was something that I never would have done, a freaked out if the kids tried but as it was a organised walk and roll and we were told they would be very muddy we let them get on with it and it was a blast! Picture 20+ kids all under 8, so aged between 5 3/4 and 8 walking in the dark, in the woods, with torches, mud and puddles. Then we get to the crater and they are encouraged to roll down the crater on their bottoms, rolly pollys, even Tictac took some sledges too! Fantastic muddy fun! A memory they will treasure and what a fun night and so what if they were covered in mud?! Next week is science week at Beavers and the week after a walk to a local church for bell ringing and exploring. I am so pleased Harvey is going to beavers is fab fun!
BTW I did do some colouring but not make a card last night, took much fun in the mud!

Today was running errands with Mum and then popped into Crafts U Love where I had reserved a Alota Cupcake stamp. Those that blog surf about may have seen this large cupcake stamp used and its a fab one for the Tildas to sit on. They have also got a lot more of the large Alota stamps and the sofa back in stock too. Mum treated me to a 99p stamp too ;0)
No cards to share at the moment. Just made a big dish of Macaroni Cheese for tea and had my lunch. Harvey is out on evening walk with the Beavers tonight. It has been so wet recently I think he will be coming home a bit muddy. Oh and lucky Daddy has been volunteered for this one so he is going for the moonlit walk with all the little beavers!
I hope to ink something up later so please do pop on back.

yeah! WHo else is singing? Today I played with one of my first loves, well not in design as this is a new design for 2009, but going back to my first love in Penny Black rubber stamps. Now I cant wait for the new releases, usually I would have seen them by now but they are underwraps well and truely this year.
So this is a cute little Hedgehog which I have teamed up with a selection of fab SU goodies. The background paper is Summer Picnic, the flowers have been made from their punch and shaped, the heart is one of the Saleabration stamps and the sentiment is from one of the fab hostess sets. The silver additions, are, if you needed telling Craftwork Cards candy. I stamped the hearts in 2 shades of pink and one of red and I paper pricked the sides and bottom of the patterened paper.

So the weather inspired my card today and I made it with Changito Slicker M230. The phrase I made up myself. Used SU patterned Paper, cuttlebug folder, SU punches, watercolour pencils and glitter glue.
Lets hope the rain stops... but if it doesnt you know what to do right?

And here he is afterwards with his scalf and woggle! He is so proud to be a Beaver and wanted to wear his scalf and woggle to school yesterday. We are proud of him too! Love you Harvey!
ject I made - very simple and the photos are terrible! But I made this little wallet with Pollycraft Images, cards, envelopes, ribbons and background papers as a small birthday pressie for one of Harveys friends sisters. He was taken as a guest by Ben his friend for his sisters birthday to see Alladin in panto - which he incidentally loved! January is a very hard month money wise so I decided to make a little cardmaking kit.

Today I went to Crafts U Love to pick up some stuff I need to prep for my class on Tuesday with. I am taking a class using some of the Autumn Leaves 99p stamps. There really are some bargain stamps out there now. I picked up a cute bird, swirl and two flower stamps to have a look at and think of somethign for the class. I also happened to find a cute stamp set from Hero arts and as much as I shouldnt have got it... ahem.. it followed me home.
So above is the card I made with the cute Hero Arts set. Not entirely happy with card but its OK.
I also made a little bag using my free newtons stamp from Quick Cards Made Easy. I brought this magazine JUST for the stamp!! LOL And then went onto take the stamp off the wood and recut and mounted onto U Mount as it really was a terrible stamp before remounting. It once mounted again stamps lovely and looks cute eh?
Talking Hero, I want to Thank Sir stampalot once again for their fantastic fast service. I got the new Hero Catalogue and two magnolia stamps. The Hero catalogue is FANTASTIC!! there are SOOOOO many wonderful stamps in it and its full of ideas to. STUNNING.

Whilst sorting out my stamps to sell I came across this little cutie, she is called Hugging Hearts and she is from Stampendous. Sad thing is I havent inked her up for probably nearly 10 years!! and the sadder thing is is that if you like her you wont be able to get her as she was released long time ago when Stampendous held the licence for "Our Kids" images. Sorry not meaning to tease but I just had the urge to ink her up!
Today I sent a photo of the cottage pie I had made Darren. I dont cook them that often so was proud that I had made it. I sent him the picture of the minced beef in gravy with carots and onions before I put it in the dish with the mashed potato on it and you know what he text back? "Is that sick"... LOL I suppose with the carrots he can be let of... I called him back and said "no its your tea"... heeee heee I wont eat it, I dont like mince but it smelt yummy whilst I was cooking it.
Here is another card I made this weekend. I saw this fantastic tip for people with either the SU USA topnote die (if there are any USA readers out there) or you can use it for the Nesties as well for all is no USAers... SO I will make this ladies blog, My Monday must not miss it blog
http://technostamper.blogspot.com/2009/01/fun-with-top-note-die.html Mary Jo Price-Williams and her fab idea with turning the shape after cutting has made a fab shape.
The stamp is one of the ADORABLE Huggabugs from stampingbella. All the papers are from the very fabby Stampin' Up! (via me if you havent got a demonstrator) The cute heart is from Crafts U Love but I think they might have sold out of these. As are the pins with a pearl on top, but they do (did) still have these in stock. Coloured with pencils and lashings of glitter glue.
A HUGE thank you to all that have brought from me! I am ALMOST there with my target so please do see what is left and if you want it let me know... I added more pictures so you can see how fab the studio sets are.
