Big Bows ...

I love adding ribbon bows to my cards and you couldn't get much bigger than this bow! All the papers are from Melissa Bennett's Freezin Season at Sweet Shoppe Designs, I love the colours.

A Quick Gift ...

Whilst I was playing at the weekend I 'found' this plastic bauble in my 'I'll buy that because one day I might use it' cupboard) I bet you all have one of those cupboards!! Anyway, it took hardly any time at all to fill it with pink smarties and make a few tags and add a length of pretty ribbon. I think it will make a lovely little gift for someone who loves pink as much as me!

November already???

Can you believe that it's November already? EEeeeee I am so excited as it's *almost* that magic time of the year again! The big 'C' word is topical in our house at the moment and I have been busy making a few Christmas cards, starting a few lists and I have even bought my first Christmas present!

I love this Cosmo Cricket paper, it kind of fell into my basket when I was shopping at the weekend and as soon as I got it home I used it for my CPS card for this week. I also bought some distress inks to colour my stamped images as recomended by my lovely friend Jane - I think I need more practice with the inks :)
