1st Christmas Card of 2009

Hi all
Thought I would show you my first 'quick and easy' Christmas card of 2009! A concertina style card, using Dovecraft products and ribbon from my stash.

Take care

I was in WHSmiths the other day and came across these little watercolour postcards! You stamp and watercolour your image on the blank side and as you can see the back is just like an ordinary postcard! What a fab idea ?! So simple and a lovely alternative to making a whole card I think, kind of a bigger ATC!

So out has come my Stazon, new stamps and my watercolour pencils! I am thinking of putting a simple sentiment inbetween the bear and flowers such as 'Thinking of You' or something, not decided yet!

The brand are Winsor & Newton Cotman WaterColour Paper, there 15 cards at 140lbs/300gsm with a cold pressed finish and were either £1.99 or £2.99, I can't remember. Each card is 6 x 4 inches/ 15.2 x 10.2 cm. Bought at WHSmiths, but I am sure there are tonnes of other places they are available from!

Happy crafting!

On the move again!

Hi all
Not only have we had the huge upheaval from Gibraltar to UK again this year (YEH!! to leaving, BOO!! to the actual moving lol), we have just found out that hubby is promoted (YEH!!) and we are on the move again (BOO!!), but its not too far (YEH!!) and to a really nice place (YEH!!) and there are already a couple of lovely people I already know there!!! (YEH!!). There is a craft club, thrift shop, swimming pool, great schools, girlguiding and an amateur theatrical society for the kids. We'll get a nice 4 bed house as we have 4 children too probably not too far from the Sgt's Mess, so no long staggers home or taxi's etc from functions, lol. Its in the middle of gorgeous countryside, in a village but not too far (10 min drive from the nearish large town) and still 45 mins from London! Bargain!
SOOOOO it ticks all the boxes!! Just gotta do the move in November :(
Happy crafting peeps :D

Some new stamps and watercolours!

Hi all,
Been a while again, just back from my hols and thought I would pop on and share these with you.

The stamps are clear stamps from Daisy and Dandelion, the set is part of the Bubble and Squeak pack. They are just adorable, I had to stand and make a choice :-O when I was in the Range in Plymouth! I wanted them all!
Also here are 2 Forever Friends stamps (apologies for the blurryness!) from the big set I was given as a gift when leaving Gibraltar from my lovely Craft Club ladies - I miss you!!!
My new watercolour pencils are from WHSmiths. I have found my favourite way of colouring in my stamps at last! I used a water brush to blend.

I have also bought some new clear stamps by Papermania from Chaplins in Plymouth, which I will share soon, they are from the Snag'em Stamp Duos range and are very sweet.

We also bought an absolute tonne of fudge from the little olde style sweet shop on the Barbican (where the Mayflower left from to sail to the US in the 1600's) but its WAY too late to share that with you :D hehe!
