It's the first of March and you know what that means (putting on my best game show host voice)...iiiiit's Teaser Time!! lol
There are seven new stamp sets, with five coordinating die collections being released on the 5th of this month and as always, here are a few little teasers...
Mr & Mrs:
On Your Day:
I am beyond happy that Jen Nelson, Jo Nevill and Lucy Abrams are back on board with us this month (weren't they absolutely incredible in February?!) and I'm also super duper excited to have an additional Guest Designer joining us...Nicole Picadura, who is an amazing talent :)
I would be extremely grateful if you would kindly join me and the formidable Design Team and Guest Designers over the next few days whilst we share with you what's in store for this month :) Happy Sunday, thanks for dropping by! x

Happy Sunday, I hope you're having a lovely relaxing weekend! Dean is simultaneously ironing the children's uniform and helping them with their homework, ready for school tomorrow...he's use to sitting back and just giving all the orders at work so I figure it makes a nice change for him - I'm all heart aren't I?! ;) LOL
Here are a couple of cards I made last week...
Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Baby Shower', 'It's Your Birthday' & 'Laugh Out Loud' / Tools - Clearly Besotted 'Baby Shower Die Collection' & 'It's Your Birthday Die Collection'
I had better rejoin the family before it dawns upon Dean that there are no benefits whatsoever from being married to me! lol Thank you for taking time out of your weekend to pay me a visit, I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! :D xoxo

I managed to get a few cards made yesterday but I am really struggling to take half decent photographs of them! I fleetingly considered (as I often do) investing in a SLR (is that what they're called? I have no idea lol) but even the entry level cameras and lenses are out of my budget so I guess I'll just muddle on with my cheap point and shoot for the time being...
Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Simple Silhouettes' & 'Thank You' / Tools - Clearly Besotted 'Simple Silhouettes Die Collection'
Better start on dinner for the children, the food won't microwave itself now will it? ;) LOL xoxo
Tuesday, February 17
I though it was about time I posted something on my poor neglected blog! Not entirely happy with this card, but I suppose when you 'force' yourself to stamp, the results aren't always that pleasing ;) lol...
Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Dandelion Dreams'
The children are on half term break and I am without a car (loooong story) which is proving to be tricky! Luckily my new car is being delivered tomorrow (Dean finally caved in a couple of months ago!), and not a moment too soon because cabin fever has well and truly set in and if I hear 'Mummy I'm bored' one more time I think I may lose the plot completely lol
Happy Tuesday, I hope you have a wonderful week :) xxx

Wednesday, February 4
Try as I might I couldn't sleep last night, the downside being I'm feeling exhausted this morning! The upside however, is that I managed to get a few more cards made (yay!)...

Tuesday, February 3
Another quick card I made this morning (in a rush!) - hence the dubious colouring! I'm a little bit sad that I never seem to have the time to craft anymore, hopefully things will calm down soon and that will change :)

Monday, February 2
Having no spare time to craft (the stock clearance sale has proved to be a lot more popular than I had anticipated!), I wasn't going to join in with the teasing today...however, I managed to get a little bit of stamping done this morning...

We're celebrating Owen's 9th birthday this weekend (Big Hero Six, followed by Prezzo's with several of his friends yesterday and a small party today) so it's a particularly manic one! Hope you're having lots of fun too :) xoxo
