Yellow Tulips

I love this time of year when all the spring bulbs are flowering. I especially love tulips - the yellow kind!
Today's card is just that - yellow tulips. 
Take a look


These are some stamps from Altenew - expensive but beautiful.
I used my Stampin' Up inks for this 3 step stamp set: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry. The leaves are Old Olive. It makes such a difference to your stamping when you use top quality products.
I am going to be entering this card at


The theme is ANYTHING GOES

So - I have some news for you - I've joined Stampin' Up again as a demonstrator!
I'm so happy to be doing this and can't wait to be showing you projects using my Starter Kit items plus I'll be adding various buttons for you to purchase SU products or join my team.
Meanwhile ('cos it may take me a while to set up said buttons!) if you would like a copy of the current Spring/Summer catalogue please get in touch and I will pop one in the post.

Thanks for being here today, hope to see you again soon - J xx

Pink Bindweed - and Giveaway!

Hello. How nice it is to have the time to blog again - one of the upsides to sick leave! 
I have a little card to show to today that I made with some Altenew stamps that I purchased off Ebay.
I must admit that they were a little on the small side and a little bit fiddly too.
Take a look and see what you think



They are two step stamping stamps: you stamp the outline with a dark ink and then fill in with a lighter ink. I used Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink.
The sentiment is absolutely years old from the retired set Sassy Salutations but I love the font style!

If you like these tiny stamps and would like a play - leave me a comment and contact email and I will send them out to you - free!
(First come first served)

I am entering this card into the challenge over at


The theme is FLOWERS

Thanks for stopping by today - see you soon - J xx

Oh Dear - Late Again!!!

This really is becoming quite a habit! In my defence though I have been a bit poorly. There's been a mix up with some of my medication. The tablets I have been taking for a long time now shouldn't be mixed - mixing them can cause damage to the heart!! So, I was having a particularly bad flare, went to the doctors to get some stronger painkillers and came away with a note to sign me off work for a week and an appointment for an ECG! So I'm feeling a little worried now to say the least.

In other news there is the current challenge over at 



And here is my card that should have been posted in the dt line up last week!


Please head on over to the challenge to see all the wonderful inspiration from my fellow dt and if you can take part - even better!

See you soon - j xx
