My Mum's Craft Shop - DT _ Favourite Stamp

Oh decisions decisions, how many stamps do us girlie's have? and we have to choose just one fave?!

Well this Penny Black stamp always pops up, and is soooooo versatile for so many occasions, I do love it, it's defo a firm fave on my list. 

I have recently re found my love of copics, having admired so many talented ladies work in real life.  I forgot how amazing and vibrant the colours were, and had to give them another go - understanding I have to be patient! and learn, well this is my first play with them, and its not amazing, but I had fun and loved every min, so looking forward to using them more and more now.

We would love to see all your favourite stamps so please pop on over and join the fun. xx

Paper piecing

Over at Less is more this week the theme is paper piecing, I love this style of paper crafting, its so much fun, and with lovely papers the options are endless.
Any how I brought this stamp a couple of weeks ago at the papercraft show in Taunton.  The lovely papers are by Doodlebug.  I was so excited to try out this stamp and make this card I didnt even think about the less is more aspect!  Duh as the title is in the give away!!!  Not to worry I am sure I have another cheeky stamp or 2 or 3 to make another card from! lol
The stamp is by Woodware, I used a brown momento ink pad.  No sparkles or glitter so not like me! lol. x

My Mum's Craft Shop - DT - About the boys

I'm so so sorry for being soooooooooo late in posting this - I do have a very good reason for being late!!!  I've been in hospital - not many of you will know we are due to have a baby in 4 weeks, as our lil girl was born so early we are considered to be high risk!  We have gone way past the time she was born, but non the less we cant count our chickens just yet.  So I had a few days in hospital watching all these lovely ladies come in, and go through to have their baby's. 

Anyway because of all the dramas this week, I am late in posting (SO SORRY) the theme over at My Mum's Craft Shop is:


Well what better excuse to get out my shiny new Die-namics stamp and die combo set called Let's Toast - I can see this set getting used loads, for allsorts of occasions. 

Sorry the photos are a bit pants - dies are so fab when you have fat swollen fingers!  As grateful as I am to be pregnant, I am looking forward to having some feeling back in my right hand and being able to colour again : )

Well that's enough moaning from me - I'm so pleased to be home.

I would also like to enter this into:

I am not really a scrapbooker, but I thought I would give it a go.  I find the 12 x 12 size quite intimidating, I think this is 8 x 8.

I love the alphabet letters, they are Die-namics die, the stamps are a Stampin Up set, I also used a nestie die, and when if ever I am happy with a pic of myself, I will put one of me and hubby in the nestie space!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter:  Anything Goes.
Moving along with the times: Anything but a card.
Papertake Weekly: Anything Goes.
