The background paper is taken from Tim's gorgeous paper stack Vintage Shabby overstamped with swirls using Distress Ink - Worn Lipstick and smooched with Spiced Marmalade, I then stenciled through a piece of Making Memories Die Cut Eyelet paper with Snow Cap Dabber. Tim's Tattered Florals get a look in too, cut from 7 Gypsies Life Creme paper and coloured to match !
Sometimes it's nice to re-visit old stamps that have been cast aside in favour of all the new additions lol !
Hope you are all having a fab bank holiday weekend and enjoying the beautiful sunshine...........well it's gorgeous here on the Island !

So who wants to win a 6 x 6 Mini Deck ? Just leave a comment and in a few days the random generator will select a winner.
It's official......I'm in love with the new Tattered Florals Die !!! I spent a lovely afternoon yesterday at my pal Penny's house and we set to work making gorgeous fabric flowers (Penny's craft room is not only a haven of your normal crafting stuff, but it is also chock full of gorgeous fabrics and threads) I said to her yesterday that she really needs to have a blog to show off her amazing fabric creations - they would blow your mind !!!! In fact if she doesn't I will have to take some photo's and show you myself.... ha ha, I know you will be reading this Penny !!
Anyway here's some of the flowers we made.................
I can't believe that it's nearly that time of the year again when the Island comes alive with the sound of 1000's of motorbikes and the promenade is buzzing with life ! It's the time of year when I start hankering after another bike !! Luckily, I never actually get around to getting a new one - I had a few very near misses in the olden days LOL ! - So I ponder and window shop and before you know it, T.T. Week is over for another year and my hankering gets pushed to the back of my mind again ....... the kids can then breathe a sigh of relief again......pmsl..........ermm.... "Mother on a motorbike"..........I don't think so !! They would never live it down LOL !
Ok, get commenting if you want to win lol

I think Blogger is actually behaving itself today as well, so will attempt to put a few piccies on..................
I thought I would make this little folder to hold all the little packets of gems and blingy stuff that always seems to get lost, so using a set of the Teresa Collins Bracket Covers and page protectors, I set to work.......Some yummy paper from one of the Tim Holtz Paper Stacks and my favourite little Stampotique pal Prom Queen (who will be arriving back in stock any day now)
With hindsight, it needs bigger wires, so I will probably re-bind it over the weekend, but it sits on my shelf nicely and no more lost gems :)
Back later with some........Bl..........sssshhh.......

So...I though I would try my blog instead... a nice long post for a change, and twice now, yes twice ! the blinking thing has not published - there are gremlins about tonight.
It must be about time for some more Blog Candy.....but that's for another day.... so keep checking the blog !
Right I am hitting publish now before I lose the blinking thing for the third time !!!
Be back soon

I was having a bit of a play with Stampotique "Heart Throb" boy at the weekend...... although I don't think he looks very happy in his cage LOL ! I used the new Tim Holtz Cage Die in Grungeboard and dug out some of the older Prima papers to go with it. The words are 7 Gypsies Gaffer Tape.
He looks a bit happier out of his cage here.........or not !!
Ok just a quick update on the 12 x 12 Grungepaper - it arrived yesterday and was put back into stock last night, an email was automatically generated for those who had it on notification, unfortunately by the time many of you checked your emails this morning - it was showing out of stock again - yes....it sold out in under an hour !!!! It has been in such short supply now for months that everyone was bulk buying several packs at once (and in one case... the entire stock that was left) The good news is that we have the 6 x 12 Grungepaper, and that is now in stock in the new products section, so apologies to those who thought the website was going mad !!! Other new bits and bobs have arrived too including Tim's Paper Stacks which are now back in stock. Still a few more boxes to unpack that arrived yesterday, so watch this space.....

- Having successfully ran an online craft shop for many years, the time had come to take it easy and find more time to create and play. Of course I couldn't leave it there and signed up as a Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. A fabulous range of high quality products and a brand new craft room, what a great combination !
