It's been a very eventful couple of weeks with trips to the hospital and doctors and so much more, that I can hardly remember it all now. The old memory has taken a battering as well, but what's new there then.
A huge thank you to the lovely Ems of The Little Brown Rabbit blog. I won her giveaway and chose a beautiful print from her Etsy shop. I'm looking for the perfect frame for it them I'm hanging it in my bedroom where there's no danger from being damaged by the sun (not that we get that much, but I'm not taking any chances). There's a link on the side bar for both Emma's Etsy shop and blog. Take a peek she really does have some beautiful prints, paintings and cards.
This is a card I made for Michele to sell for the Candyfloss Animal Sanctuary, the papers are By Crafty Individuals, the text stamp is by Illusive Images, and the tree stamp is by Art Stamps (I think) sorry too lazy to go and dig it out to check. I partly covered the tag with versamark ink and embossed with clear embossing powder, I also clear embossed the moon behind the tree at the bottom of the card. Sadly it doesn't show that well in the photo. Oh and I nearly forgot, I highlighted the tree with a white sukura glaze pen. That reminds me I have just had the red and green glaze pens come into my possession, thanks Amanda, they really are lush, I lurve em. And I didn't even know they had done them till you told me. Don't know how I managed without them, lol.
I've been doing a spot of shopping too, so I thought I'd share a few of my purchases with you. I bought these beautious gifts from The Laural Tree Shop. There's loads of gorgeous gift ideas in this lovely little shop. Not living that near the shop I ordered it all online. Brilliant service and very well packed. There is a link to the online shop on the sidebar, just click on the picture.
And I treated myself to a new pair of boots (or should I say the credit card did). Well I didn't have a lot of choice, my sad old pair had completely worn through, and I was fed up with getting wet feet when I took Sammy for a walk. It took me ages to find a pair that was comfortable and warm, but I finally found a pair in Ecco's.
And I just had to put in a pic of my sheepskin slippers. OK so they are actually boots, and they came all the way from New Zealand. Considering I get chilblains on my feet in the summer it's essential that I keep my tootsies warm, and these fabarooney boots do the job real well. I'm on my fourth pair, and in my opinion they are far better than Uggs.
And here is Bilbo having a chocolate mousse treat, it's one of his faves and he goes right to the bottom of the pot and gets it all over his face. Sammy's always on hand to help him wash it off though.
Sammy even shares his food with him.
And her royal plumpness Baggins having a snoozle on the cushion.
And drum roll please. KaJeD Designs have at last been released for sale. You can buy them from A Card 4 U (link to the shop on the side bar). The most mahoosive thanks to Julie for going to so much trouble and making it all possible. There are 5 sets of craft papers, 1 set of additional backgrounds and loads of digi stamps. I've put a few examples of the stamps on here, but please go and have a look at the rest, and please let me know what you think of them. Right just lost one of the pics of the paper bundles so you'll have to check it out on the website. Is it just me or does it drive you crazy when you try and tidy it all up, and poof your picture disappears!!!
