Oooh - look!! New things!

Although I have not been able to create much recently (life has taken over a bit), I still have my beady eye on what's new and exciting. And I have a few favourites to share with you today.

First up, some new stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp. they have loads of new ones, but these are my faves....

And next, some gorgeous sequins from The Ribbon Girl. I have been looking for places to buy quality sequins in the UK for ages - and finally my favourite UK store has them. Yay! Look at the pretty colours!!! So shiny. :)

Hoping to get back to my craft table soon. Until then, have a great day. x

Smiley Card Set

I have a little card set to share that is perfect for using up all those punctuation stickers that you get left with so often... I love alphabet stickers but I pretty much never use the punctuation ones, so had to come up with a solution.
I grabbed the cool Square Sayings stamp set by Simon Says Stamp, some fun graphic patterned paper, and voila! A fun card set and so easy to throw together. This would be a fun gift set to give a friend. :)

The possibilities are endless… and they would work with so many different sentiment stamps.
Yay for using up your supplies.
Bye for now.

One Big Hug

Hello. I have a card to share today that features stamps from Simon Says Stamp's Spring release. I just love this little bear... and I created a customised message by combining a sentiment from THIS set with the word 'bear' from THIS one, adding a hand drawn arrow. I just love mixing and matching sentiments like this.
Some wiggle eyes and Glossy Accents make the bears extra cute I think. :)
That's all for now.
Back soon.

Thanks, Friend

Hello, happy Sunday.
Today it's time for a new Ribbon Girl challenge, and this month, the challenge is to add a button or two to your project. Fun. I expect I am not the only one to have enough buttons to fill a small car...
Anyway - I created a fun stripy card using some pretty Simple Stories papers, a sweet sentiment from THIS SSS stamp set, some lovely wooden buttons and some yummy ribbons.
I do so love making rainbow-y cards!! Can you tell. ;)
Find the challenge details HERE - and do enter, you can win some great prizes!
Have a very lovely Sunday, whatever you are doing. Lots of family time over here today! Yay!
Bye for now.

Have a lovely weekend.
