Well Father’s Day is nearly here so had to get my thinking cap on. As my dad is a big fan of FC Barcelona and also wishes he had a VW Campervan what better way than to mix the 2 together.
The colour’s may not mean much to many of you but the top layer are FC Barcelona’s home colour’s and the bottom layer are their away colour’s plus the colour’s of Catalan.
Now my dad has a VW Campervan !
Supplies :- Clearly Besotted Stamps – Colour Chameleon

Following my recent post on Digi Stamps I decided to give it a go. I have to admit although I am not brilliant at cutting, I am pleased with this draft result.
Now for the next few weekends I will attempt to have a go with other digi stamps providing I can find time as been asked to make cupcakes, baby shower tags …. Where is my craft time ?!
Supplies :- Coffee / Latte Cup via google, Coffee Beans via google

Stamp was given to me
So as today was miserable weather I decided to make a couple of cards – well template’s of cards after browsing Pinterest for ideas.
I know these cards are again not 100% perfect, just merely templates for when I do make them for various occasions.
I made 3 Thankyou cards for my godson Nanna ( as unsure what one to give her ) as she kindly made me a nap map and next week I will be making her a Scrabble Family Name Frame as a Thankyou for her kind gesture.
The Unicorn does look plain I will admit but I am aware it needs a colour background I was so undecisive of what colour so left it blank for now….maybe pastel blue, pink, orange ??? Hmm I don;t know !
Supplies :- Clearly Besotted Stamps – Thankyou, Flower Blocks & Forgive Me Flowers. Dies :- CBS Flower Blocks & Marianne Designs Eline & Unicorn Die. Inks- Memento Dew Drops
Well I had all good intentions to use my fab Breast Cancer Awareness stamps and die cut this morning but just could not get an image to create this…typical as all week I had some good images in mind, I must start to jot these down !
Anyway, as my mum’s birthday is looming as she loves Poppies, I decided to give this set another go. Have to admit I am pleased with the outcome and am sure she will love it.
I then came up with a Nautical theme, I have no idea why but came up with this design.
Hope you like 🙂

After a very manic week I am slowly getting all my happy mail ( well apart from a seller in China that sent me 4 embossing folders instead of 8 ! but am on the case with that ) and a lovely rare day off, I decided to play around with new dies, folders and stamps.
I have been after a Ribbon Awareness stamp for what seems ages and finally got a stamp set, although ribbon not as big as I would like, I must not complain.
These are nowhere finished to my satisfaction but as I said am only playing around.

I just recently bought WRMK Precision Press Stamping Tool from CraftWorld after reading so many fab reviews…Where has this tool been since I started !!
I know there are other varieties of this stamping tool out there and I am not going to make any comparisons as I don’t own any others nor would it be right of me to do so.
So what made me buy this ? I suffer from Tennis & Golfers elbow and after a while I get excruciating pains and have to stop, Not any more with this handy tool. I must admit my stamping is now so much better and so much easier. There are so many pro’s for this product…. Light, Compact. perfect stamping, can easily re ink an image if not correct and not have to worry about lining stamp up, layer stamps, card did not move when stamping …need I go on ?
If anyone is thinking about getting this or any other stamping tool my advice is DO IT !
It was so easy to stamp and I did 50 Wish Jar Little Notes within approx 2 hours from scratch.
Supplies :- WRMK, Tag Die, Stamp Set – Scribbles Flowers CBS, Inks – Pickled Raspberry ( Distress Ink ) & Memento Dewdrops : Dandelion, Tangelo and Tuxedo Black
I have a Wish Jar to make for a Christening soon and coming up for a design was baffling me as really did not want the traditional “baby” stamps or dies on the tags. After looking through Google it then hit me … Scribbled Flowers !
This was my first mock attempt and although I am pleased with them I do however have 50 …yes 50 tags to make ! I will be so happy when my WRMK Precision Press arrives as be able to make 50 tags all with same design.
I then decided to keep playing around with this set and made this A Little Note Card
What do you think ??
