Some new things …


I was recently lucky to receive a little prize bundle from Inspired by Stamping.

I am using lots of the new goodies in this card and am linking up to a few challenges as well.

Firstly this fab challenge where you use some new or never before used “schtuff” – love the whole idea of this there are a couple of rules so check them out before you play. 🙂Never-Before-Used-Schtuff (Stamps, Dies, EFs, etc.)

and the monthly IBS challenge

Now here is my card

nbus + ibsc 86 (640x478)

I have used new never before IBS Flowers Bloom, IBS Fancy Label Dies 1, IBS Vintage Floral Paper Pad and ribbon along with some things I already had IBS Fancy Label Dies 3, SU crumb cake cs nd SU Crumb cake and Bashful blue ink. A couple of gold brads to finish off this card.

Yesterday I took Ms 9 to a craft fair in Geelong. Boy did she have a great day. The stall holders where so lovely to her. The only purchases where for her stash plus she scored a couple of little extras for the generous stall holders.  I didn’t add to my stash at all. We have a Roxy long socks pattern which she had to have so hoping during the school holidays we will make this up – I have some fabric left from her quilt so the plan is to use this. Ms 9 has fallen in love with an embroidery machine so sweet I had to explain place value of decimals to her – she misunderstood $xxx as $x.xx! If only it was $x.xx.

We also made 4 poppies whilst we were there for the Geelong Wool Museum display.
