Well I’ve not done much blogging over the past few weeks as between work and studying for my French written and speaking exam I’ve not had much spare time.  I can now relax for a bit although I have loads and I mean loads of work to do before the next 2 exams which are listening and written the 2nd week of May.

I’m off to Sir Stamp a lot this weekend at Peterborough with friends.  It will be crafting morning, noon & night.  It will be tiring but well worth it.  I will come back having learnt and had a go at lots of new techniques, with lots of things that I’ve made and my bank balance much lighter than when I went :) But I will be a very happy if tired ‘bunny ’lol.




This is a commission for mother’s day.  I used  retired card stock (close to cocoa) and DSP from Stampin' Up!®

This is a peak view of the insert which I’ve used the top note die which is in the new Stampin' Up!® mini catalogue and of course my favourite stamp set pocket silhouettes


Well I haven’t yet packed for the weekend so I’m off to pack.  Being picked up at 12MD by my friend Pam.

thanks taking the time to pop by and look at my  blog – please leave a comment as I love to read them.  Have a great weekend

Hi Lesley, I did know about the baby elephant dying. What a shame. At least I got lots of lovely photographs of him during his short life!
Are you going to be at the next Dabblers?
