My crafty buys from blue jelly- and dont forget i have a blog candy at the moment open to all


On sunday i went to meet vicky aka blue jelly as she was having a sale of her old unused stuff and her stamping up stuff, well it would have been rude not too lol, i stayed for about 4 hours chatting and of course spending lots of my money(or should i say dans)

It was fab and vicky was just as i imagined her to be

I bought lots and lots as you can see, it was like going to the nec lol, although ill be going there too as im still saving up,Can you spot my stampin up stamps lol that makes about 12 sets i own now, lots of matt stacks and sentiments, chipboards,ribbons etc etc,
It was lovely to meet vicky as im nervous meeting new people and especially since i went on my own lol, i do hope to see her again at her future crops and classes,
Besides this whole lot of stuff ive bought 2 other second hand stampin up sets and some charms, along with a maggi and cc design stamp of ebay, and am awaiting my stamping up club order !!!!!!!
think i must of spent a small fortune of hubby's money lately, but you know what they say....
"you only live once"
well better go now as ive got stew and dumpling cooking in the slow cooker lol

Have a pint on me


This kenny k digi is fab i just love it, so when i was asked to make a card for a son who loved a pint i just knew he was the one, now there where a few challenges floating about for clean and simple so thats what ive done, The grossgrain ribbon is 1.5 cm wide and fantastic on mens cards, ive used platinum stickles around the image. and the papers where gifted me from one of my trimmie friends as i dont have much mens papers, of course my promarkers got an airing as they do on most cards lol, i know im still not great with my colouring but im learning, some images i colour look pretty good and others not so.
