Popcorn Chillin

I am finally back with a couple of cards. They were made for an order not for fun which is why I think I have managed to get them made.
I have used a couple of Popcorn Bear stamps that I got in for the shop and these 2 somehow found there way into my stamp box !!!.
They also fit into 2 challenges Stampavie & More, and Secret Crafter who both want to see animals on your cards this week.

Cardmaking & Papercraft Iss 71

Hi everyone,
Sorry no cards from me at the moment, havent had chance to have a crafty session for a while. I even had to go and buy my Sister-in-Law and Brother's birthday cards from a shop last week, how bad is that!!!!!!.
I thought I would just show you a quick piccy of this months Cardmaking & Papercraft mag where I had the designer challenge and had to create 5 cards suitable for the month of November including a Firework card (which was a nightmare).

I am hoping to resume normal service into cardmaking as soon as I can, have had a pretty hetic few weeks with the shop and the opening. The weekend went well though and my open day was a big success, so a big thanks to all my customers who came and supported me in my new venture.

1st Christmas Card

As you know I have been getting lots of stock in for the shop, and somehow some of the items have jumped out of their boxes and said they wanted to stay with me !!!!.

I fell in love with 2 gorgeous new stamps from Penny Black, so I had to make something with them. This card was originally supposed to go on the shop's inspiration blog, but I got carried away and added some things onto it which we dont sell. I dont want to put anything on the shop's blog with items we dont sell as I feel its unfair to the customers.

Image is Penny black and is called Hand Mailed, papers are Crafts-Too, Papermania shimmer dots & pearl brad, Craftwork Cards oval sentiment, Hobbycraft snowflake punch. The image has been matted using Nesties.

The other item I made is a little money holder, if you want to take a peak you will find it HERE.

Hi everyone,

Sorry about the serious lack of posting lately, I have had a lot on with the shop. I have ordered lots of goodies in ready for the opening day and most of them have come bulk packed so I have been packing them all up separately in nice little hanging bags and it has taken a lot of time.

I have been given this award from the lovely Pat so I thought I would pop it up. Thanks Pat is was lovely of you to think of me.
