Christmas Event Day

Here are some pictures of the classes held at the hall and Suzi Q's Cafe. Thank you to Sarah Kallender and June Garner for helping Sue in her cafe. Thanks to Carol Dawson for donating a lovely Quiche (proceeds went to charity). We would also like to thank Wendy, Helen, Caz, Kim & Francoise for all their lovely cards and inspiring everyone! And a BIG thank you to our staff Sue, Tracy, Heidi, Katie & my mum for all their help leading up to the show and on the day to make it a successful and a fun event.

Ladybug's & Thank You

We have just received these new stamps in from Ladybug and they are causing quite a stir. Kim Fee demonstrated them on our Christmas Extravaganza and everyone loved them.
I have lots of photos to put on the blog over this week from our Demo Day and would like to thank everyone for their continued custom and help to make it a really special and enjoyable day

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!

Natures Dance

Here is today's Create & Take, Natures Dance stamp from Penny Black. We embossed this stamp with gold embossing powder and then used silver & red Stickles at the end of the branches. We tied the new Bazzill Tulle around the cardstock to finish it off.
Hope you like it!

Lilly Ladybug

This is one of the latest releases from Alota, the Lilly Ladybug Collection. They are so cute and very good value for £19.99 a sheet which has 9 stamps on it! I just realized I did mean to glitter her wings which will I think would look much better.
