Meet Bingo...

Well its been and now its gone, what was all the stress about?
Another Christmas over and I really hope you had a lovely time. My parents spent Christmas with us and my sister and family were home in England for the first time in 4 years, so it was so nice to be all together around the dinning tabel for dinner! which my wonderful hubby prepared, I was chief kitchen hand, dishwasher loader and pot washer!!!

The kids really loved there presents especially "Bingo" the 8 week old kitten, I did not realise its so hard to find a kitten around winter time, but with the wonders of the web, lots of email exchanges and  a snowy trip out to collect her on Christmas Eve, we managed to get a kitten...she is so cute and a real hit with everyone especially Alfie our puppy who just wants to lick her !!!

Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine is on sale on the 6th January 2011 and I am so proud to be featured again, this time I have designed the Exclusive Free Gift, a set of Molly Blooms stamps. So I will leave you with a small sneek peek of whats on offer, so be sure to buy your copy. Just remember that these stamps are not the usual deep etched  red rubber that my stamps are always produced in so the stamping  may not be the usual quality, but what a fab free gift while you await my new range!

A big thankyou to you all for reading and following my blog, I really do enjoy reading your comments, heres to many more.

Finally may I wish you all a happy and peaceful New Year for 2011.

Love "n" Hugs

Baby... its Cold Outside!

Well I had so much planned for today... but alas the snow has won and put a stop to that.We have just been out walking with Alfie, and we soon had to turned back as the snow was to deep, not that Alfie was fussed but my feet with thermal socks and boots were frozen!!! So my list to finish my last bits off for Christmas will have to wait till we can get the cars out.

So I thought I would share this card with you, before I go and start my Christmas wrapping. It is the one and only card I have made to give to someone very special this Christmas, I did not even make Molly and George a card how bad is that? considering my stamps are based on them!

Before I go, I must say a big hi to Maureen, you did it well done! I was really impressed when I saw your name up there.

Well as always thanks for stopping by, let me know what you think.

Stay warm and cosy,

Advent Boxes..... Empty

A good morning to you all out there. We are still struggling with snow and ice here and I am beginning to wonder if the snow will ever go.

Thought I would share this advent calendar with you today. I made it for Molly with some of my just released new stamps. Unfortunately the box of Cadbury Heroes that I bought specially did not make it into the little boxes, as George and I had a chocolate feast on Sunday evening!!!

I apologise for the poor photos but now my camera is playing up along with a list of other things in my house. Let me know you popped by, and keep warm.

Snow Snow and more Snow..........

Can't really believe all this snow, I can really... it happens every year around here, but not till a little later in the year normally. Well life has to go on and after living in this area for 3 years we are use to leaving cars at the top of the hill and walking home! George is a little miffed this morning school is open and no snow day,can't believe he's 18 in a month, because he was behaving like he was 8!!!

I am off to Sirstampalot tomorrow, for their Ultimate Stamping Demo Day on Saturday, not sure how long it will take me to get there, but I will definitely be their for the first class of the day 8.00am, so if your booked in I look forward to seeing you then, we will be working with my newly released christmas stamps that no one has seen yet, so I think I will leave you with a little sneaky peek.

There are a few places left on my classes which are running throughout the day so if you are not booked on yet contact Sirstampalot.

Have a good day,
Stamp & Enjoy

P.S. I will probably not be blogging for a week or so after the weekend so will not be contactable via the web as we are changing over server.
