New Year, New Craft stash!



Hi everyone,

Well as i'm practically snowed in at the moment here in Bedfordshire, I got some proper crafting done today for the first time since before Xmas! Woo hoo!

I usually get the family to collect the Xmas cracker packaging over Xmas and New years so I can 'recycle' them in my cardmaking the following year.  It doesn't always go to plan as I forget about them, but this year I did actually make my Thankyou cards out of them!  What do you think?  I don't think you would know at all!! hehe

I think it's a nice thing to do, sending thankyou cards.  I know we all say it to our family and friends when we receive our gifts from them, but what's an extra token of appreciation?  Plus, you get to show off what your best at - creating!

I also made myself and a few friends some 2010 diaries this afternoon using my new The Greeting Farm Miss Anya stamps.  I am building up quite a collection now, I just love them, almost as much as Magnolia Tilda and Edwins!



Well, bedtime for me I think!!  Don't forget to enter my blog candy below if you pop by.....!

Take care,

Lou x
