Hi crafty friends & bloggers, hope you're all well & warm.....the weather's certainly
taken a turn for the worse right now...............we have snow & it's so, so cold!
So for today I have a little giveaway, let me tell you the story behind it....
I was at a checkout waiting to pay for something the other day & on front of me was an elderly lady paying for some cushions. She pulled out a couple of neatly folded bags & was trying to put the cushions in them & put her purse away at the same time.....while the cashier sat picking at her finger nails!! I automatically picked up one of the bags & helped her to pack her cushions, then popped them into her shopping trolley for her. She was so thankful & said to me that she hoped I was
rewarded with kindness from someone very soon. The very next day Postie brought me a package from my lovely blog friend Barb containing a heart I'd admired on her blog!
How gorgeous is that? Thanks so much Barb, I love hearts & this now has pride of place in my
craft room! So I decided to pay Barb's kindness forward & give away a paper pad.
It's called Mulberry Kisses from First Edition, it's 8x8 & is full of the most gorgeous
papers....some glittered, some fabric, some double sided......just beautiful!
If you fancy winning just leave me a comment.....would be great if you were a follower & feel
free to pop a pic in your sidebar. I'll draw a name at the end of the month.
Morning lovelies, how are you today? Well, I hope. All good here, had a little crafty spend yesterday when I was supposed to be doing my Christmas shopping so guess what I have planned for today? Not a lol,....gonna shut myself away in my craft room & have a crafty play. So today's crafty share is a wooden heart, I painted, sanded, stamped & crackled away then finished with some seam binding I dyed with Dylusions spray ink...... so much messy fun lol!
Here's a close up of that fabulous crackle
Rightio, my friends.....I'm off to fill my coffee mug then I'm off to my craft room. Thanks for calling, see you soon. xx
Hi friends, hope you're all well & warm......I think it's definitely time to get me Winter woolies out!
We have a new challenge for you today over at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends so I have my Dt make to share. I used the gorgeous Snowflake Fairy from Ching-Chou Kuik, coloured with Copics. I layered everything onto black card & finished with some die cut snowflakes, punched tabs, gems & some Tim Holts chit chat stickers. As usual the theme is anything goes & we have 3 fabulous sponsors:
Morning crafty friends & bloggers, hope you're all well & warm.........I think we're definitely
on the way to Winter, it's that chilly this morning I've got the heating on!!
So today being Friday you know what that means........Share an Oldie time (craft style of
course) with Erika over at Snappy Crafts as she invites us to look back over past makes.

A Christmas card from me today, from about 3 years ago....could have sworn I'd shared it
before but can't find it so apologies if I have! I used sweet Magnolia Tilda image, added inky
edges, pearls, a charm, ribbon....lots of my favourite things all in one place
That's it for today, thanks for calling.....hope to see you tomorrow with my Crafty
Calendar dt make!
Hi crafty friends & bloggers......hope you're all well!
Ooh, it's a cold morning.....damp, dark & misty....perfect for shutting myself away in the
craft room....once the nasty h****work is done, of course......wink, wink!
Another Christmas card to share today made using a sheet from the fab Studio Light,
a little bit shabby this time & nice and flat so perfect for posting.....and I love the non
traditional colours too! Rightio, gonna go get myself a nice hot cuppa & have a wander
around your lovely blogs, thanks for calling......see you soon.
Hello crafty friends & bloggers......hope you're all well.
Today I have another quick & easy, flat for posting card to share....I do love the colours
on this one although I have to say it does look much nicer in real life lol. I'm still not
up to colouring anything, my hands are still bad but thankfully I can still get my crafty
fix using lots of die cuts & toppers. I think once my hands are in full working order I'm
gonna sit & colour up a whole batch of images!
So that's my lot for today, off to get my hair cut soon & have a natter and a cuppa with a
friend, I think we might even manage a little cake with our cuppa!
Thanks for calling......see you soon!
