Pink, Red and White plus giveaway

I've been trying to colour store my supplies these past few weeks. Sometimes its just easier to grab things the same colour rather than fishing for it in a box of multicoloured items. But I'm screwed on how I'm going to store patterned papers that have, like, a kajillion colours on them. Perhaps I shall store those in manufacturer order. I wish I hadn't started, if I am truthful. I keep finding things I had forgotten about and getting sidetracked. It's driving up the bloody wall.

Aaaaaaaaaanyway, I came across these paper from GF Smith. They are flocked handmade papers and are incredibly strokable. I set myself some time this evening to have a little creativity whilst Mark was at Uni. I also wanted to use some of my little bits from one of my absolutely favourite shops, Mei Flowers.


Using GF Smith paper and cute red beaded hearts from Mei Flower


Stamps by 7 gypsies


The most beautiful butterfly punches from Tonic Studios

Check out Mei Flower's 99p postage cost - across the board, no matter the cost of your order.

So this afternoon........
Eddy was really getting in a fiddle when Mark didn't come home at his usual time. He aches for him to come home and sits at that window with "lock on" our driveway. His inbuilt timing is bob on.


Ellie waited at the window with him but this picture was taken 2 hours before Mark eventually tipped up. Eddy is about to bark in the picture below....because he saw a leaf move on the tree outside. LOL
I love my two guys so so much. Its that aching feeling you get in your chest that twists inside when you try and describe how much you love something so much. But its true, they are my world.

And oh....yes,
you see this canvas I taught here?
Well if you are at a loss, this weekend, do try and pop along to PaperArts (Gloucester) where there are a couple morning spaces and a coupla afternoon spaces left. It would be nice to see you :) What you don't know already is that there is a mini bonus class too.

I used to keep colours in groups together, it did make it easier when doing a quick card. But now, well I have too much stuff!
Your sausage is so cute, we have a surrogate sausage called Fidget!
I could do with a bit of flocking, so who knows you might pick me!
