Did you catch the launch of the new Denim and Lace kit from Kanban on Create and Craft on Wednesday? If so and you managed to buy one then you are in for a real treat....if you didn't then you don't know what you are missing!!! It is a stunner and without further ado let me introduce you to our little owl friend who appears on this luscious kit.
The design team were lucky enough to get the kits a couple of weeks ago so we could make samples with it and we all agree that it is a beautiful kit to work with. The kit includes images and frames, florals and stripes, assorted shapes and there are even inserts available to but to co-ordinate with this kit.
If you are in the Yorkshire/Lancashire regions tomorrow and have a bit of time on your hands then see the advert below as to what you could do to fill that time ;)
2nd Floor New Mill
Come and meet some of the team. We shall be open from 10 - 4pm with special offers and free "Make and Takes". And if you like our new kit "Denim and Lace", we shall be demo-ing with it and we will be taking orders

I can't believe that it's a month since I last posted on my poor neglected blog. My reason?......Well at the time I had a rather heavily pregnant daughter who didn't want to be on her own but unfortunately didn't have an internet connection at the time. Since the 20th July however, this little fellow has arrived and completely disrupted all our lives :) Meet Archie who has completely stolen his nana's heart!
He has made such an impact that I can't even remember what life was like before he arrived a fortnight ago!
The crafting didn't stop though. I did, however have a crazy few days trying to get all of his birth announcements and thank you cards made whilst carrying on with my wedding work.
I have used an assortment of Clearly Besotted stamps and dies and Spellbinders Nesties.
I'm still making Thank You cards but have simplified it slightly for speed!
Thanks for dropping by and as life is almost back to normal my crafting will be back on track but I still have loads of photos to add here and to my FB pages etc.
Back soon :) xx

The theme for the challenge on the Crafting Muskateers' blog for the month of July is 'Summertime' and we are very lucky this month to be sponsored by the Hobby House and the prize is a £10 voucher to spend in their store.
Don't worry if you don't have a blog as you can upload your work onto our Facebook page.
Thanks for dropping by :) x

Sorry about that but I could resist lol! We received a new Christmas kit from Kanban late last week and it is fab. It's a Nordic theme in shades of red and blue and all the backgrounds and toppers etc work so well together. I wasn't very keen on it when I first opened my DT kit and don't think I would have bought it, but after playing with it over the weekend I just totally fell in love with it! I would be more than happy to make my own Christmas cards from it, that's how much I fell for it :)
So, you need to make yourselves a nice hot drink and lock up the kids as the kit is being premiered on the Kanban Christmas Show on Create and Craft at 5.00 pm and 8.00 pm this evening with Keith, Denise and Dave Bradford.

I thought I would pinch (borrow, nick, steal) Kathy's title for this post to make my job of blogging a bit easier lol :) as it's time for the new sketch over on the Kathy's Waffle Sketch File.
You are really going to love this sketch......I got really carried away with it last week and plan to use it for some more cards, thanks Kathy
There you are, clean and simple! If you are looking for a bit of inspiration then hop over to Kathy's Waffle Sketch File and take a look at the DT cards.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you will play along with us.
