Morning crafters, thanks for stopping by!
I have a few bits of news for you; Jess is home this weekend hooray and I’m so pleased to see her. I was a bit worried about her driving all that way as she is quite a new driver but she got here safe and sound yesterday afternoon and promptly fell asleep! She seems to have settled in a bit better now and can laugh about it, she really can’t explain why she was feeling so sad so I think all it needed was a bit of time.
We got Joe enrolled in college during the week, he’s doing catering and seems genuinely excited to start. He didn’t like school and couldn’t wait to leave and although he got the results he needed to get into college they weren’t great. He managed to get a job in a lovely local restaurant too which is great, it’s 1 night a week to start which suits him fine for now, hopefully he’ll be able to pick up another couple of shifts when he’s been there a while.
I hope you enjoyed the Lili of the Valley blog hop, the winner was picked from Fleur’s blog and announced last night on Ideas to Inspire. The new stamps go on sale at midday today so not long to wait!
There are so many cute stamps in this set that I can’t choose a favourite, I’ve always loved the older Nativity images so I think if I had to pick it would be the Nativity Angels …I do love James the bear though …and the new squirrel images are a bit different
I’m really late with my Papertake post this week, but it’s a lovely challenge and you still have plenty of time to enter
The theme is…
…so a nice easy one, just add something floral somewhere on your card!
Our sponsors are The Ribbon Girl so there’s a fab voucher up for grabs for the winner
I used an image that had already been coloured so I can’t take the credit this. Dena did it a while ago for advertising purposes, and it seemed such a shame for it not to be made into card…
It’s one of the gorgeous Lili of the Valley Little Mermaid stamps and I’ve used the new Always and Forever papers, I love these – very girlie!
Here’s everything else I used;
LOTV Simply Sophisticated sentiment
EK Success border punch
Magnolia DooHickey heart tag
Pearls, tulle and mini beads from The Ribbon Girl
Some of these flowers were a pressie, thank you lovely Elise!
Hope you like it, have a fab weekend everyone xx
