Hello all

I am going to remove my followers gadet , as a fair few poeple can not access my blog, I wondered why my stats were plumetting!! Apparaently blogger is trying to fix this and have suggeseted that we move our gadet further down the page and if this is not working delete altogether...

So I wanted to pre warn people that I am going to do this incase anyone wanted to bookmark my blog, or was just waiting on an update and were not visiting as they thought I weren't updating....

I am also having a few problems, the screen freezes every few minutes and is driving me bonkers, I am contemplating going with typepad and have set one up but not had time to do anything on there!!

Are you ready to Pamper yourself !

With some serious RETAIL THERAPY! (elyzbells sneak peaks)

Well hello all its been a long time!! Blimey time has flown by, It's a rather stressy week for me, after classes and mag work, my little fella Stan, got hold of my craft bag and chewed it to bits and all that were in it including my Stamp with us DT card, oh no no time to make another!! I did one in th end but i think my mojo was zapped by my sadness of my dinkie craft bag and stash, My fabby elzybells hand made by fairy was amongst them , he chewed the stamp right off the wooden block, I was however able to salvage the rubber so will remount, but my ink pads and tombows nope! A brand new watercolour brush, now I had two one cost just over a ound and the other a fiver, Hmmm, what one does he chew, yep the fiver one, oh lordy not even used it only bought it last week.. Some of my Copics were in there too but he must have Known that would have been just too much for me to cope with!!

And all because i left him to go to dinner at my SIL, Oh my why oh why did I forget to put me bag away! I knew i should have put him in his little house, as earlier that day when i took Paul to club, he munched his way through SIX bags of wotsits, and he could not deny it and blame ickle tillie coz he had cheesy breath!!

Well on to my Sneak peak are you ready for some serous retail therapy oh I am thats for sure!!

I coloured this one in with primas and koh-i-noor pencils and OMS which the later two you can purchase from Elzybells....the sentiment is part of the dinkies set.... Everythingelse can be purchased from Craftsulove...

For my second card, I used the same papers, and a differnt dinkies Set, This time I coloured with copics and paper peiced her dress, Now I have this stamp in the larger size, But this dinlie s a real must for co ordingating, or those smaller cards, they are just so mega cute!!

I went to craft barn on saturday to see the demo's they were fab, it were very packed, so squashed in where i could, didn't see all of them, but made sure I saw my fellow DT's from dare u 2 digi, Chris Dark and sandra dry as always they both had stunning creations on their tables, I sat for a while watching Chris colour with the distressed inks, and was waiting with baited breath for Chris to get to doing that unique background that she does, oh my its fabulous.... and got some tips from sandra for coloursofts so thankyou ladies....

I did come home and try Chris' technique and didn't do too well I am afraid, but hey it all comes with practice!!
