Xx How Kind xX

People are sooooooo kind, sometimes I come home and there is an parcel waiting for me …completely out of the blue, from one of my followers …. I am always totally overwhelmed that I have spookily popped up in someone’s mind and they have taken the time to send me something VERY special and funny,  as has happened this week ……
Small printers trays
…… Like Sam who sent me this WONDERFUL pile of little trays, I am so thrilled …. and I know she really had to go ferreting to find them… I haven’t been able to part with the original shelves of curiosities I have  made, but now I can make a few more to give as presents …… and another one for myself to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Thank you Sam soooo much, they will all be treasured, I promise you.
Letter from Louise
…. And this letter and present made me howl …. it’s from Louise ….
MNaltesers Fun Size
….. it arrived yesterday ….. and made my heart sing …..
How special is this?  I wondered why Louise had asked about the font in the Chat Box!!! I love it.  Most of the Maltesers disappeared during two episodes of Coronation Street last night  (I think it was Michelle who did Frank in!!) A letter will be put in my Smashbook and the poster will be put next to my desk.  THANK YOU so much, I love them all dearly.

Cards Made Using Fizzy Moon Celebrations – 8ins x 8ins Pyramage Pad

I have a confession …….
Fizzy moon Card 1
I never ever thought I would have any pyramage on my blog, it’s just not my thing BUT …. I was browsing the reduced craft items at my local garden centre and picked up a Fizzy Moon Celebrations decoupage pad which had been reduced I ummmed and ahhhhed and then put it back.

Then as I wandered round I thought that for the price of the pad I’d get 24 toppers from it (for 24 cards) which worked out at 25p each …. and the designs would probably go down well in my box at work.

So the pad went into my basket …..
Fizzy Moon Card 5
….. It was only when I got home and looked at the pad again that I realised I had picked the wrong one up, they looked so similar, but  had in fact bought the pyramage one!  Aggghhhh
Fizzy Moon Card 6
So I shoved it in the back of my cupboard, very cross with myself …. for not having paid enough attention to what I was doing.

Then the pad started niggling at me because I knew if I left it there it would stay there forever and I would have wasted my money ……. so I took a deep breath and made them all up, and now time will tell if they go!
I’ve used Creative Paper Strips in Gingham and Dots from Handy Hippo for the backgrounds.
