Happiness


This image makes me so happy when I see it! I just love the quirkiness of Diane Duda's stamps! The past two evenings I've just not been in the mood for creating though. I realised today this was probably due to mountain of stash on my craft table! I'm not a tidy worker by any means but because I do do alot of crafting and have a habit of not tidying up after it my desk can quickly become covered! So it was time to clear up! Now I have so much space!

I haven't played over at Sketch Saturday for a couple of weeks so thought I best remedy that! I've also combined a few other challenges:) At Whimsy Challenges they want to see your friendship cards (am just in the nick of time for entering this..again!), tuesday taggers (a newie to me) want to see flowers as do A Spoonful of Sugar, and Papertake weekly want to see creations with a theme of a season-I'm going for Summer!

Stuff: Sugarnellie stamp by Diane Duda 'Upside Down', coloured using copics, distress inks in shabby shutters and broken china, core'dinations card, Basic grey papers 'Lemonade collection', McGill flower punch, xcut flower punch, prima and papermania bling, studio g sentiment, BoBunny doublesided ribbon.

We had a fab day at the Farm Park on friday, leo loved feeding the animals! We all went on one of those big trampolines as well-so funny! My candy will be closing soon! I've absolutely loved reading all your comments on what has made you smile-all of em made me smile! I also had a lovely email today from a fellow crafter (if you're reading this Michelle-you really made my day!) which made me smile even more! Hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend-here in the UK we've been super lucky with the weather!

  1. Oh darling this is just super cute as always. I know what you mean about your craft area. I do a clean up at least once a week but do try and do it after I have finished creating for the day so I have that clean slate in the morning/arvo when I start again. Hmmmm some nice weather would be great - throw some our way will ya - it is freezing here but I bet not as cold as it gets in the UK. Miss ya babe. Email me.

Glad you all enjoyed the farm visit and I think we crafters all get a bit clogged up at our work stations I have just had a big clear up as well lol.
