My mate Judith is selling her Cricut for £130 ono.
She will be including the GEORGE Cartridge and SPATULA and Mat and 2 SPARE BLADEs. Judith will also be including an extra Cartridge called GOING PLACES.
There is nothing wrong with it. It has only been used on the very odd occasion, because she is soooooo in love with her BIGSHOT which suits her style of crafting best.
Judith also has several Cartridges for sale; Christmas Cheer, Storybook & Wildcard. £25 each
If you are interested then email me at email@example.com so i can get back to you.

Glossy Accents on the
I thought it was just perfect
on it's own, so no need to
I used it for a Sympathy Card.
Punches are both Martha Stewart.
And i managed to tie a bow in that bloomin grossgrain !

For the lettering i used sizzix decorative strip alphabets; Easy Peasy & Small Stuff. Both available from Sir Stampalot, and they have the full range of the Ollyfant clear rubber stamp sets too.

Ollyfant are so affordable and they stamp perfectly, they are not an inferior product at all - infact quite the opposite.
Sir Stampalot have the whole range including the 4 new sets.
It's another one i made earlier, thank goodness i have a stash of them !

And just when I think i have made some headway, i look round, and suddenly everything is all ontop of me again..... I bet you guys know exactly what i am talking about, so no need to elaborate.
Needless to say, this is another oldie as i haven't crafted for months...
Hope your all well out there in the either !

This one is a bit elaborate !.. I made the pagoda on my PC and cut it out on my cricut with Sure Cuts A Lot. A Brilliant programe that lets you cut out any font on you computer... amongst other things.
The flowers and branch and corner are all sizzix sizzlet dies. And of course the 3 Oriental ladies are Hero Arts and very cute indeed !
I am quite chuffed with this one, I hope you like it ! See ya

I love this word ARIGATO - just rolls off the tongue. Evidently it means Thank You - but Arigato sounds much nicer don't you think !
This Oriental girlie has an Evil Twin. She looked a bit - well mad actually ! - so i lobbed off her cheeks and her feet and slanted her eyes a bit so now she looks quite cute.
Been meaning to use dangly beads for ages, and sewin...
Arigato for looking.
thought i'd just slip that in! See ya.

I thought i'd post this card up as i have just seen my visitors counter thingy and it has counted just ONE visitor and that was probably ME !!!
Isn't there a song...I might as well go and eat worms !

I loved using this set of Hero Arts clear stamps, its a really fun set ! I coloured in with Souffle pens for a nice bright solid colour. I embossed the branch on blue cardstock to add a bit of colour. And Daisy Bucket paper sets it off a treat. All supplies from Sir Stampalot or course !

This is a card i did for my husband's birthday. I tried to keep it quite plain cos i know how guy's don't go for all that razamatazz !
His birthday was on the 3rd July and we've only just taken it off the mantle!
I used a Digi Stamp from Victoria Case. She does fantastic drawings - funny people or animals with lots of humour in them, right up my street ! I really do recommend you take a look.
Watch out girls it'll be coming your way soon ! You really ought to check out Spyders' site because she has links to some brilliant blogs which really are worth seeing.

I had a go at making my own flowers using sequins. Just layering them up. I used Glossy accents as glue- nice and strong.
For the stems, i used large paper clips cut into different sizes. They are already stripey!
And then tied on ribbon, just as knots.
Now then, i have found i can't tie a good bow with my bowmaker if i use ribbon that is too skinny. The ribbon needs to be a bit wider to
get a nice fat plush bow.
I shall try and post a bit more frequently, i just haven't been so good lately. But it's certainly cheered me up chatting to you guys, i should have done it sooner. Thanks for stopping by.
Here's a bunny card i did about 4 weeks ago. I know im a shameless cheat, but, I haven't been able to do any crafting lately.
