Feeling the pinch?

Oh yeah... we are... But then, who's not?

The poxy car failed it's MOT again, despite the fortune I have spent on it this year. Gutted is not the word. Only failed on one thing but it's going to be another £90 or so to get it through. FFS. Everyone in the world has their hand in my pocket.

On a happier note, I've done a bit of crafting this week. I had a really crap weekend last week and wasn't in the mood to do anything, but things have eased up a bit now and i've managed to get in here and pick up some papers.

A wedding card for the theme post on IACW. 

This looks large but it's actually tiny! Only 3.5" x 4.5" :-)

And a card in gorgeous Autumny colours

And a 12 x 12 of Rubes.

There are a few half finished things on the go as well which I'll hopefully get up this weekend as they get finished.

Yesterday I went to meet a fellow scrapper, a lovely lady called   Bekka  who is local to me who just happens to be a stampin up consultant... and now I want... um... everything. Lol!

I saw some gorgeous pens, inks and watercolour pencils. More stamps than I've ever seen in one place before (drooling much?) and pored over the brand new catalogue which could make you dizzy with inspiration. All I need to do now is win the lottery! I got to have a play too - and now need a cuttlebug and ALL the embossing folders :-) yep.. just 6 lil numbers... and i'm there!

Thanks lighthouse girl for my lovely things, that wonderful coffee and for letting me loose with your stash :-)

More later

You are more than welcome :-) It was lovely to meet you. I really enjoyed our little play too - we will have to do it again soon!

If anyone else wants to check the catalogue check out my blog at It is truly scrummy. I also have my name down for those 6 numbers - so much goodness to be acquired!

Thank you for sharing these lovely cards and pages
