Waiting for Tuesday

That's all Harvey is interested in, Tuesday as he is 8 on that day :)  He is soooooo excited!

I made this card tonight, all was going well until I "wonkily" stamped his name on it.  But by then I didn't have the energy to start again.  He'll love it, wonkiness and all.

I used my Cricut to cut and weld the 8's
Woodware Mice for the main images
Tip of finger for the white dots!
Stampin Up! for the wonky letters

Got lots of buzzing about tomorrow to get things ready for his birthday :)  Its so lovely when they are 
young and very excited.  He has been going mad all week everytime he thinks about how close it is now.

Positive Feeling

I am feeling positive and happy right now where things are and what is happening.  Having made the decision to stop Stampin Up! the other week I was really upset, a HUGE decision as it had been something I had wanted for so long.  But for me my love of stamping with all things cute and colourful is the best feeling and I am sure this is the right decision.  That and working for one of the best craft stores in the UK how could I be sad?  I have one month left of being a demonstrator and then I am sure I will be someone's good customer! LOL  Last order will be going in 15th March.  Give me a shout if you want anything :)

I have played about and made a quick blog banner and also changed my wallpaper, do you like?

Cant believe the time... I have a bunch of new Penny Blacks just calling my name.  I'll will be back during the weekend to show you what I have made ;)


Penny Black Cupcakes

Here is the adorable new Penny Black stamp.  One of a "few" that I got last week.  Well its my second to last Stampin Up! commission payment so I got to treat myself :)

Really please how this came out.  As well as the Penny Black image I used

Woodware scallop Heart Punch
Stampin Up! label Punch
Stampin' Up! Buttons
Maja Papers
3d Gloss
I coloured her in with my SU inkpads

This fits a few challenges :

Wags n Whiskers - Punches
Cupcake Craft Challenge - Cupcakes and Icecream
Daring Cardmakers - Poundshop Challenge

That's all folks.  Tomorrow we are going to cinema to see a Marmaduke, an older film but for £1
at ticket it cant be sneezed at and my boys love animal films.  Then off to TGI's for a lunch, a sort of 
pre birthday meal for my Harvey who is 8!! on Tuesday 


School Holidays

Kids have mostly been with nanny and me mostly working.  Poor Caiden was sick for 4 days.  Thankfully he has perked right up now but its horrible for them when they are ill during their week off.

Here is another owl card made using the lovely Woodware stamp set.

Went out geocaching today.  Found 5 and we are all worn out!  A lot of walking, least my feet were warm and dry in my wellies :)

My first love

Penny Black was my first love in stamping and I still love their designs.  Here I have used a cute hedgehog from a clear set and popped him inside a clear treat cup from Stampin' Up! with some little beads as "shakers".  The sentiment and leaves and flowers are Stampin' Up! too.  The heart border is Martha and the cute little hearts from Quixotic Paperie.

I am thrilled to be teaching and demoing with some brand new Penny Black stamps at work, so please book your place to be creating with these adorable images.

Been a hard week with work being SOOOO busy and Harvey not being well
I am very tired but pleased I managed this card :)

Cake Time

I made these cakes for my three beloved boys :)  Darren, Harvey and Caiden.

The icing was a bit too thick so it didn't pipe on nicely.  Needless to say they didn't last long :)

We've been having fun geocaching.  We even brought our own Travel Bug and wrapped it around the neck of a little bear called Bentley (see above) and placed it this past Sunday in a cache in Crawley.  Its already been picked up by someone and will be travelling all around the country :)  I'll let you know where he ends up next.

Happy Valentines Darren xx

OK so I made another card last night.  I saw Ladybug Crafts had a Love is in the Air challenge so I wanted to get a Magnum out to make a card.  I also used my heart stamp set from Stampin Up! too.  I am placing my next order tomorrow/Weds so if you want to tag anything onto it let me know.  This is the second to last order I am placing as demonstrator anyway.

Here is the link to the challenge blog

I hope whatever you do you have a lovely valentines.  My humbug husband doesn't celebrate it so its just another day for me.

This also fits the following challenges

Get Punchy at
Cute and Cuddly at
Creatures Great and Small
and the last one Hearts and Flowers at

Fishing for your heart

As soon as I saw this little Prima stamp at work I had this idea that the little boy was sitting on a large heart fishing for this heart brad.  I have used lots of bits for this Prima flowers for large heart,Hero Arts text for flower and edges of white card, Prima hearts from another one of the Prima stamp sets, Of course the fishing boy from that Prima set

I need to add some wording to it.  I think is hubbys valentine card. :)

Hi All
Hope you are all alright, bit dusty in here!  Been busy working and too tired to blog anything.

Lets see if I have made anything..

Oh yes, I made this cute card using one of my New Helz Cuppleditch stamps.  I just loved this cute rabbit!

And this one using my other new Helz Cuppleditch set too :) They are very cute aren't they!

We've also discovered Geo Caching and I am sure we will be doing a lot more of that as Spring and Summer approaches.  A good way to go for walks and get the kids excited about it.

Will be back soon with a more regular blog regime.
