I went with the colours from Global Design Project, which I thought would work with the ‘leaves’ theme from The Paper Players (I don’t have any scarecrows!) Now I’ve looked at The Paper Players’… Read More Eden’s greeting
Hello there. Well it’s not been the day we’d planned, as the queue for the Queen’s lying-in-state was still closed early this morning. We decided that we couldn’t go later as we are already committed to something tomorrow morning and the queue was forecast to be up to 24 hours wait. So very disapppointing.

Hello crafty friends. Well, here we are at the start of another week and the sun’s still shining here in the UK.

Welcome to my crafty blog. Well I seem to be doing quite a bit of die cutting at the moment – today’s card features a bit more! I dug out my Stampin’ Up! ‘forever fern’ set, after being inspired by a post from a bloggy friend that used it. Somehow I’ve managed to combine four… Read More forever fern wreath
