My Happier Place

Good evening folks, how are you all? hope you are all ok and enjoying a relaxing evening.

I've not been around much this week as I've been really busy at work and been unpacking my stuff into my new craft room. I'm really pleased with it, as it's a bit bigger and my hubby has also put his computer and stuff in there. Which means I won't feel as guilty spending time crafting whilst he is sat on his own, as he'll be in there too, doing his stuff, although I will be in charge of the remote for the telly. Hehe!

Here's my first card made in there.

I've used a very cute stamp from Red Gingham Designs available at Little ClaireDesigns.

Red Gingham Designs are a wonderful new stamp range which include some fab circle sentiments and some gorgeous new Christmas designs which are available very soon.

One if which is Little George, that I have used here, although I've coloured  George in pink, aww! just a little cutie as a boy or girl.

I followed a sketch over at Sketch Saturday

Before I go I have some exciting news to share with you, I have had one of my cards published. Woohoo! I'm chuffed to bits.

A couple of months ago Gill at Little Claire's asked me to design a card with a step by step to put in the Best of British cardmaking book. Well it's in this issue, I am just thrilled to bits. :o)
