Second Hand Craft Sale Sat 22nd October!

Would you like to earn a few pennies for some new stash from your old/unused crafting stuff. Yup you guessed it I am holding another second hand craft sale. This will be the fourth one and they are getting more and more popular! There were massive bargains to be had last time so don't miss out this time!

It is free entry to come and grab a bargain, there will be lots of stalls and refreshments for you to have a rest in between stalls! You may even get to sample a famous Mrs Wonka cupcake!

It will be taking place on Sat Oct 22nd and will be from 12am-2.30pm.

I have already booked 75% of the tables but still have some still available. If you would like to have a table and get rid of some of your surplus stash (we all have it!) then please do not hesitate to contact me and I can give you all the information.

I will of course remind you all about this nearer the time, but this is one not to miss!!!!! I am excited about it already!

Last Miss Mimi card..........

This is the last card that we made at the September class, not over the moon with this one, am unhappy with the background, but I guess we have to share the good and the bad!
I hope that everyone is having a nice weekend, we are having an odd job day today, so hopefully the weather and Mr Wonkas enthusiasm will last!

OMG I inked and distressed Mimi...........

Morning bloggers! Not my normal style today, I inked and distressed, which left me very distressed!!! LOL Anyone that knows me knows that I like a nice clean line and find anything vintage/distressed a little disturbing! Don't get me wrong I love it when fellow crafters do it but it takes me well and truly out of my comfort zone!
I have used SU paper and have distressed an inked the edges....................faint! The funny thing is you can't even see it in this photo! LOL I did do it honestly!
I am dog sitting Rosie today so had better scoot and get my walking shoes on!
Although roller skates may be better as she takes me for a walk really!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, be back soon! xxx

Bonjour Miss Mimi......

Good morning bloggers! How the devil are you all. I had a lovely birthday, thank you for all your lovely comments and for all my beautiful handmade cards and presents. I was so spoiled and received such thoughtful presents that I was a little overwhelmed to be honest.
It's all over now though so back to normality! Well not quite normality, we am having some work done on the house and my gosh I am all over the place, everything is filthy and I can't imagine ever getting back to normal!
This is one of the Mimi cards from my September Penny Black class, we made three different cards and I will pop back over the next few days and let you have a peep.
I have used SU papers from the celebration range and teamed it with some "night of navy" card. I love the navy and read colour combo and am pleased with how this one came out.
Right I am off to make the patio man a cup of tea and defrost my toes!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birthday dear meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Happy Birthday to me!
Bet you can't guess who's birthday it is? LOL I do get a little over excited at birthdays!
As you may or may not know I do like to indulge in the making and eating of the occasional cupcake. Well one if my bestest friends decided that rather than me making them she would make some for me, she has never baked before and practiced all week! Here are the results:
I think she done a brilliant job don't you? They even have a superstar Z on the top! I was so excited to see them and even welled a little! LOL Getting sentimental in my old age! Thank you Lou Lou x
I will pop back soon and do a birthday show and tell! I am spending the day with Mr Wonka, I think you will agree a spot of shopping, a little lunch and a few cupcakes are in order!
See you soon.
Birthday girl! xxx

August Scrapclub Single Page Layout

This is the layout that I made for Augusts Scrapclub it is the only photo of me that I actually like so it tends to be the one I reach for if I need a pic of me (although I have reflection across this picture and it looks like my nose is 20 times larger!)
I have used "Lap of Luxury" papers and the SU Sizzix flower die. I was really hesitant to use these papers as they didn't really grab me in the catalogue but I was kicking myself for not ordering them sooner as they are DELICIOUS in real life! You still have a couple of weeks to get your mits on them so don't hang about!
See you soon xxx

Final Stampin' Up! class card.

Here is the final card that we made on Augusts SU class,
it goes to show what a shocking blogger I am as I held Septembers class the other evening before I had even shown you last months! I will try and get those cards on quicker! I have used all the same products as the first class, and have used the adhesive gems as well.
I am off to chill out as I am off to a wedding later, I'm really looking forward to it, I hope that I manage to last the whole evening!
See you soon

August Stampin' Up! Class Card 2

It may have taken me a little longer than expected but I'm back with my second SU class card.
I love the blossoms in this colour combination (Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy). I'm also really pleased with how the faux stitching had come out. I have embellished with some adhesive pearls.
I'm sorry that I have been a little quiet, I have not been too well (nothing interesting, just on going girls stuff) and everything is a bit of a struggle! I do have a couple of busy weeks ahead but I will try harder to pop back more often.
I'm off to prep for the September SU class, so see you soon xxx

Hello hello, as promised, I'm back again with the first card that I made for my August Stampin' Up! class.
