A lovely warm day.......



I hope you are enjoying your Sunday and relaxing, doing whatever pleases you most.

I went out yesterday to buy a new basket/box as my dies were over-flowing........ I ended up with a plastic shoe box which is fine........today I had to go out and buy a container for my clear stamps as they are now overflowing......... I ended up with a small 3 drawer stack.......... this means now that I have an empty basket, I can sort out my stickles and distress inks which again... are over-flowing!!!
If ANYONE sees me near craft shops or on-line shops, make sure you batter me and take my credit card........this stash is becoming obscene!!!! what makes it worse, is the stuff you come across that has never been used, but I could not live without!!!
I just hope I am not the only one!!!

In between the trauma......... I have made a card for a couple of challenges.........

Back to basic papers (from last year, I did not buy any Christmas with being away)
Matted on to green card
Image Sugar Nellie
Coloured with promarkers
MS snowflake stamp
Nesties circles dies
Marrianne poinsettia die
Stickles from stash

I am entering the following challenges;

Merry Monday ---------sketch 57, make a Christmas card

Craft challenge --------- Christmas

Card Mania --------------- Die cuts and punches

Delightful Challenges ---------- Circles

Well, thank you for your visit, I will try to visit you before the Sunday night telly.........only night I enjoy lol

Hi Tilly
I'm back in the land of the living and playing catch up. Your quilt will be posted soon ....it's No37!! woo hoo! Trouble is that I'm off again in May to Slovenia, then to Germany in June.
Are you going to Port Sunny... might see you if you do go as I'll be there as a visitor not demming as Carol is going on holiday this time so will not be exhibiting. Let me know.
Love Jo x
