    I get mugged by the spendy elves and come away with loads.

    For those who are interested I have just blobbed a decopatch project that I attempted yesterday and adjusted this morning when I realised my J was back-to-front d'oh!
    First time doing this particular craft and I must admit I'm quite pleased with how it turned out

    Right, off to eat, bathe and get dressed as much like FF I've been in the room of craftyness since about half nine and only just seen what the time is I blame the mini album I was making! Another first for me - it's a DT project for next week - there are photos on my FB but you'll have to wait a week for the blob post

    Thanks FF, you're a star but the original outline that my customer gave me had about six words on it including 'happy birthday so I think I'll have to look at those little letter squares that I think come with paper packs. I have a set somewhere but it's not going to look as good as the real thing like yours but thank you for the kind offer. I might try UKScrappers and see if anyone has a set tucked away.

    FF I got my images the other day so thank you!! Just waiting for my Promarkers to arrive then I can show you all the lovely things I do with them

    I've started making our mother's day cards - all ready to mount a picture now

    Went to the Range on Saturday and bought myself some sentiment stamps and brads and paper flowers. So very excited!! I was very good though and put lots of things back and stayed under my budget. Sooooo proud of myself

    Hi all,

    New to this thread - stumble upon when I was browsing mse website. I've been card making for a while now, but sometimes runs out of ideas or times, and started picking this back up recently and making our wedding invitations just now.
    Looking forward to getting to know all of you, had a read through some of the threads and finding away around and swapping tips and hints. With me not paying attention to the crafting when I've been busy, am now behind with the new crafts and promarkers you guys been talking about, so about to go googling! Have a good day and will hopefully not write an essay next time

    Cake is ALWAYS welcome lol! I'm actually going to be baking tonight - long story but it's a girl at work's birthday soon and she is normally based up in our Scottish office. However she is down south with us tomorrow and Friday so I thought I would spoil her with cake

    Plus it gets me mega brownie points with the rest of the office lol!
