Lost Treasures!

Good morning (yes I know it's Monday) well hope it is anyway. Just a really quick post from me today, just so you know I haven't gone off on one again

This was a thank you present I sent to a blogging buddy ages ago and thanks to RM she never did receive it. I was quite annoyed about it as by the time I'd paid the postage on it, it all added up to quite a few pounds not to mention the time I'd put into doing it (which I did enjoy.)

All products are Stampin'Up! but unfortunately the ribbon and 'yummy' stamp are retired but if you would like to order any SU products just drop me an email at and remember SU now accept Credit or Debit card payments, which does makes it so much easier!

Have a good week.

What's going on?!

Hahaha! Me again, two posts in one week, what can this mean? Just thought as my weekend began yesterday ( I might try a little challenge for a change. So as I absolutely adore PTI products and have a little stash of goodies (that I only seem to look at latel) that I might put them to some use. The challenge this week over at A Passion for Papertrey is 'out of your comfort zone'. Now I absolutely adore acetate and the effects it's gives when it's stamped on and especially when a whole card is made from it but I've always been too 'chicken' to have ago. So given this challenge I thought I would face my fear and give it a try.

So this is what I came up with, inspired by an extremely talented lady by the name of 'Sarita'. I have to say it was a bit tricky working with the acetate and matching the pattern up from the background stamp, not too mention fingers prints all over the but all said and done I am quite pleased with my feeble attempts ;) Ok so off I go to make sure I don't miss the deadline.

Have a great weekend ;)

More Gifts and the Start of My Weekend!

Oh I just love 4pm on a Thursday afternoon, the end of my working week, well my 3 day working week It's been the longest week ever and the fact I have another ear infection and can't wear my hearing aid doesn't help matters. I didn't realise just how deaf I am but I can laugh about it and I have taken a bit of stick this week in work, all in jest of course.

Way back in November when I attended the Stampin'Up! Convention, I made a few gifts, or should I say made the packaging for a few gifts. Anyway forgot to post them then, so am doing it now, better late than never hey ;)

These I made for my roomie, Keren. The cake box contains a cupcake candle.

This was the gift I gave to my upline, Monica.

If you take the time to stop by my blog, I am eternally grateful and hope you like a bit of what you see ;)

Well must dash, need to finish the house work, my mum and two friends are coming to craft later ;)
