    Wifey the brown boxes are still £4.99 or 4 for £18. The special offer ones are the old white boxes with twice as much space!! They were advertised as Managers Special. Wish I had got more though.

    Hops onto shiney new thread :p.

    Wifey - alas Funky Fairys is no more and the shop has closed - think Shaz wanted to spend more time actually making stuff :). She still posts some freebies on her own blog here.

    Funky fairies challenges are now called fab n funky challenges.

    I love those MME papers but am (struggling with) being good :A plus I don't think I would ever use them all I need to use up what I have first - or at least a little bit of it :rotfl::rotfl:
    Officially a non-smoker but still rounder than recommended :p

    A shiny new thread :D

    Have spent most of today making cards and have started trying to make some mothers day baskets and Easter baskets but haven't finished any of them

    Have also experimented with shrink plastic for some embellishments for my cards, quite please with them, will try and post onto my blog if I ever get around to it

    Want those MME papers, and have been looking at more October afternoon papers but I have so much I need to use some up first

    Will try and do some blog hopping tomorrow, decided to make OH toad in the hole for his tea, but if my Yorkshires are anything to go by he will probably have flat pancakes and sausages :rotfl:

    Hello all :j
    New thread -just shows what a busy lot you all are..........lol
    Actually made a card today...........forgot I hadn't done Easter card for little grandson ..........managed to find enough bits and bobs to do it -now need to make an envelope.........haven't got one the right size..........typical me not to think of the size in the first place................lol
    Painted some little pebbles as plant markers for foster daughter -Sage, Thyme, Basil and Parsley. Quite pleased with them.
    Now OH's got the stamps for MIL I've put them in her box of cards and its all ready to wrap.
    Every intention of tidying up and being a bit domestic but failed badly on that one...............as usual:rotfl:
    I would be unstoppable if only I could get started !

    You lot are better than therapy - had a carp day, came on here to have a moan and have laughed so much that I don't need to moan and might not need my second [STRIKE]piece[/STRIKE] half of lemon drizzle cake from M&S :rotfl:

    Lol at you lot with your trolleys and freight trucks to get you back from the NEC.

    Peppop I get my smilies from here I just luv 'em.

    Off to feed the troops - Sweet & Sour Cicken for tea.
