HI everyone!

Sorry I didn't make it onto the blog yesterday.  The day sped by and I just didn't have enough time.  I was playing in the craftroom with the Wee Cardmaking Kit from The Hobby House.  It is brilliant with enough to make 12 cards and the inspiration to go with it.  As you all know I'm not a bling and flowers person but the embellies in this kit are beautiful and as I'm off to a school fete in June I'm going to put these ones in boxes.  Once I've finished them all I'll let you see them but can only claim to have made them as the designs are copied from the inspiration sheet by Hazel Conboy.  I've done half of them so it may be a few days before I get the others done.

Next, the Kumihimo bracelet was easier to make than say ... once you got started!  Again I'm going to make some of them for the fete as you can rustle them up in no time.  I made mine in black and grey, added a wee heart and, naturally, will give it to my granddaughter when I meet up with her on Sunday.

Lastly here is my make for today.  I've been playing with some of my new stamps.  Before my craft crisis I didn't have that many stamps but have discovered how easy they are to use so am building up my collection little by little.

I don't know if I'll have time to blog tomorrow as it's out with my Aunt day.  We are hoping to have a trip to the seaside (we may never get out of the car!) but there's snow forecast again so we'll have to wait and see.

Enjoy your evening.
Anne xx

Love the bracelet Anne, your GD will love it too. Is it just made by hand or with a gadget? Love your stamped card, gorgeous layout. Hope the snow stays away. We have had rain and grey skies all day long.

Both card and bracelet are lovely sweetie. I am glad the bracelet wasn't as hard to make as you first thought.

Have a good weekend, hubby and I are off tomorrow on a steam train trip to York for his big birthday.
