...firstly I'd like to say thank you to all you loVely people who find my little blog interesting enough to of clicked the follow button, knowing you like my crafty makes enough to keep popping back makes my heart smile...


...tis very tidy as i'd had a big sweep after playing again with my new Distress Inks from the loVely Kath...the cushion cover you see is a blog candy win! yep I know 2 wins in a week, I'm amazed myself...Jaki made this cushion as well as some gorgeous others, pop over and check them out  here http://mylast365daysinmyforties.blogspot.co.uk/ many thanks again Jaki  :)

  2. These tags are really something special. I've missed out with only joining WOYWW a few months ago but I think it's a great idea. Maybe I'll know how to make them by the next anniversary? ;D
    They are so pretty and the colours are stunning...I think there's going to be lots of fun happening with all the swaps.
    Enjoy WOYWW ~ have fun! Neesie (no number yet)

  3. Hi Mel,

    Wow - two wins in a row!!! You must be living right! I love your tags. After seeing the flower on the fabric made me rethink something I've been working on.....

    happy WOYWW
    Hugs,

  4. Well, aren't you just the lucky gal! Good for you.

    I really like the tag with the fabric. What a great way to celebrate those new inks. Glad you like them. I've only got one Distress Ink and it was given to me. However, I have purchased a lot of DI reinkers. THOSE I find useful. Looksl like you've been putting that TH class to good use with those stamps, too! Have a great WOYWW and I don't yet have a number!

  11. How lovely that you received all those goodies in the post, well deserved methinks!! And I love your tags, gorgeous, though the anarchic side of me has to smile at the Ink names. Is there a TH committee somewhere whose sole job is to come up with more preposterous names each time *grins*
    Thank you for your wonderful comments and support over the past few weeks - it is much appreciated, truly :)

    Hope you are enjoying the sunshine.
    You make the most beautiful tags. Your style is terrific.
    I am still showing mine of what you sent me. Don't laugh but I wrap everything back up each time so that I can go through how amazed I was to receive such a lovely parcel.
