I would just like to thank the ladies who popped over last night for our little get together at Crafts U Love. Well done to Rosemary who won a Black Squeeze Tool in our free raffle and thanks to Carole Dawson for providing a lovely Indian Platter. Now here is the last Create & Take of the year. I have used the new Inches from Inkadinadoo. I have used the Greeting set but there are lots to choose from and at only £8.99 they are a good price too.

It was so busy up there especially Saturday, you could bearly move. We had the new Woodland releases from Quickutz which went down a storm. It was really nice to meet some of our on-line customers and put faces to the names. Thanks for everyone visiting us at the stand and making it such a great show.

We have just received the new Imaginisce Fairest of Them All range so I have used the papers on this baby girl card which we will make in Create & Take tomorrow.

I just thought I would let you know Magnolias are here. It has been mayhem at our shop today because the new Christmas Magnolias arrived and there are 42 of them! I don't think they will even make the shelf at this rate so if you want some now get your order in very quick! It is so hard to decide which ones to go for as they are all gorgeous as usual.

Create & Take with Forever Friends

I couldn't resist making a card with the beautiful Forever Friends bears so here is one for our Friday's Create & Take.. The burgundy one is coloured in with watercolour paints & glitter is used on his had and to create a snow effect (this is the one we will make in C & T). Then on the green one I have stamped on different card stock and paper and used white Fun Flock for his hat. As you can see I am just lovin the new Dotted Swiss cardstock from Bazzill.

New Recruit

Sorry I haven't updated for a week, it's very naughty of me! I still have problems with my scanner but I thought you may want to see our latest recruit at Crafts U Love. Here is my youngest son Ben (2 1/2) helping me with a mailshot. He insisted on helping so after he tried a few stamps which went everywhere expect the envelope and cost me over a £1, he was quite happy to fold down the envelopes and then put them all in a neat pile. Well after doing about 20 he got feed up and left the rest (another 700) to me!
