Day 2 of Little Claire's new releases

Good afternoon, how are you all? I must say I'm shattered! I've been walking to and from work and although it's not far it's worn me out. Mmm! Think it might be the case that I'm unfit and rely on my car too much.

It's day two of the new releases over at Little Claire's and today we have two fab stamps to show you.

First of all here are a coupe of cards made using the brand new Garden Shelves stamp.

The Changing Tree - Easter set has six stamps that can be used with the original Changing Tree stamp set to create trees & also on it' s own.

I just LOVE all the new sets that Little Claire is releasing this week. These two were a joy to work with and I think the possibilities with different colours, papers, embellies etc. are endless. 

Well we still have another three days of new releases to share, you are going to love the others too.

I'm off now to catch up on some DT stuff, hope you all have a really lovely afternoon. Stay warm!

What I've been upto.

Good evening everyone. Hope you are all safe and warm. It's just started to snow again here although we haven't had as much of it over the weekend as some of you.

We've had a lovely weekend, we all really enjoyed the film UP last night. Aww! it really is a lovely film. Then we were up bright and early this morning, got all bundled up and went out sledging. Bradley loved it, his little face was a picture. We were going to build a snowman but the snow wasn't playing. It just wouldn't stick together. Then back home for a sausage butty & a hot chocolate. :o)

After Sam picked up Bradley I decided to have a change round and a sort out in my craftroom. It has taken me the rest of the day but I'm really pleased with it. So here are a couple of pics, it could be quite a while before it's this tidy again.

Hope you all have a really lovely evening, I'm off to catch up with your  lovely blogs and watch the telly. 

Ooh! the snow is really coming down now!
