Thank You Teacher

I had to share my 8 year old son's card for his teacher with you. I thought he made a great effort with this card but I was very proud of what he put inside, it read ' Thank you for teaching me. I liked learning about the Romans and thank you for Gardening Club and I like eating radishes.' He has loved planting seeds and growing plants and vegetables and bringing home the produce for us all to taste!

Kim does decoupage with Sarah Kay

On Saturday Kim Fee demonstrated the new Sarah Kay stamps. These cards are absolutely fantastic! You can't fully appreciate the detail of these cards on the blog but they are so beautiful in the flesh. We have run out of a few of these stamps but have more on the way. Check them out

Wine & Cheese

Here is a little idea for a mens card. We made this for Create & Take on Friday in the shop and everyone seemed to love it. The stamps we used are great for men and all you need to do is a bit of chalking. Unfortunately we sold out of all the stamps but they should be back in stock and on the web in about a week.
