I'm still here!

Oh my goodness how long is it since I posted? I really don't know what' gone on with me since I got home - I've just felt I wanted to lock myself away and be a bit quiet - so I did! I do feel really guilty though as I haven't posted ant DT cards for a week and that's bad.
So it's Monday morning - time to get on, draw a line and start the week with a card.
Today being Monday sees the start of a new challenge over on Make My Monday and this week the theme is - FAIRIES AND/OR MYSTICAL IMAGES.
Here's mine


Not Stampin' Up stamps I know but some I got free on a magazine a few weeks ago - bought with this challenge in mind actually.
I did however use my Stampin' Up Brayer and inks - can you spot a sneak peek???? Why don't you pop back tomorrow and I will reveal all!

Please do hop over and take a look at all the other lovely work from the dt and I will see you soon xx

MMM - Pretty in Pink

Good morning - it's Monday morning and that means another challenge over at Make My Monday. Today's theme is PRETTY IN PINK and normally I would have a card ready made for you however I decided to stay a few extra days with mum so I could visit my dad in hospital on Father's Day so I haven't been able to make one.
I found a pink card from a while ago to inspire you and I will try and get a new one ready later in the week.


Lots of retiring stuff on this card - please do go and check out the Retiring List on my online shop HERE

New Catalogue on it's Way!

That's right not long to wait now and you can feast your eyes on all the new loveliness heading your way in the new Annual Catalogue.
There is so much more this time: Project Life, new In Colours and of course Stampin' Up are launching their own line of colouring markers. Not like the usual Stampin' Write Markers (which are all still available) but markers which blend. And, oddly enough these will be called Blendabilities. There are also some fabulous new stamps perfect for colouring with these new pens.
So - want all this new stuff???? Of course you do! Can't afford it all in one go? I know how that feels BUT - I have a way of you getting your hands on all this and acquiring some freebies on the way - here's how

Join my Stampers Six Club and spread the cost of your stamping addiction over six months - 
Email me on deezinesart@icloud.com to let me know you would like to join.
Be prepared to commit to spending £25.00 each month for six months. (There will also be an additional charge for p&p).
Make your monthly orders on the 10th of every month.

You will then belong to a group of six other like minded crafters who will each receive a complimentary copy of the current catalogue and any other published during the six month period.
Also during the six months you will each take a turn at being a Hostess - this means that when it is your Hostess month in addition to your £25.00 order you will also be able to order a further £25.00 worth of products for FREE!
As soon as you sign up with me you will receive a copy of the current Annual catalogue and also any mini catalogues published during your time in my club.

My next Stampers Six Club will begin in July with the new catalogue.

I also pop a hand made gift into your order as a little thank you - take a look at a few I have made before



Thanks for stopping by today and reading my blog - take care and have a great weekend xx
