Dear Eileen,. I do not want re-imbursed, just put a Donation in any Charity Tin, if you like. I have found some more, put them in an Envelope for my friend to post Tuesday, have fun with them!  I got my Craft-Shed Catalogue, lovely Fairy stuff, Fairies are my favourite, feel a bit of a buy coming on!  I do a bit of Stamping but usually with my Wooden backed Stamps. I do, however have some Lily of the Valley Stamps, my very favourite. Happy Crafting, Tina xwave

Tina I love the craft shed catalogue , but always want so many things out of it. I have a couple of lily of the valley stamps, but I have just bought some from sheena douglass, a set of 6 vintage ones that were on create and craft tv. I will put some money in arthritis research tin. Thank you so much for the stampsbig_hug

Want to  get some Gift Labels Stamped and ready to colour, I like doing this, as you can pretty them up.  I meant Gift Tags, my Daughter usually cuts me some out on her Machine, but she has not had the time , so will just cut them from bits and Pieces of Card.

I was cardmaking this afternoon too Tina but have come to a standstill I went to print some toppers off a cd rom to find that the ink in the printer connected to the computer has run out, so have just done some die cutting for future use.

Never got my Idea off the Ground, Eileen, have just finished Baking. Will do it tomorrow. Have my Friend who just sits with her Cross-Stitch, we just Craft away together. I taught her to do it, now I can't, as my Fingers are too  bent, so stick to my Cards. I have a Boxful of Family Cards ready, so feel good about that.

Thank you for the lovely Card, Eileen, really made my Day! Am just going to make more Xmas Tags, it is such fun, as well as using up bits and pieces that might have been wasted. Am putting all the Childrens names on the Tags of their main Presents. Happy Crafting! Tina x ps Just after my Friend posted your Package, got my Monthly Magazine with more Stamps on, will send it in time  for you to use it, as it is Xmas Bauble Stamps. They do say, more Stamps next Month, so will send them together.wave

I came across this collection of handmade cards - and I do love the beading and flowers - also the landscape feel to them. Fab. okokCertainly some ideas ....

Took Orders for nine Cards today, all the C Word.  Thank goodness the Gardening is all but over, still got Chutney to make but cutting down on that too this Year.  Convinced I need more 'Stuff', I have too much already, just need some new Ideas.  Just going to have a little Look, at what the Ribbon Girl, has new in.

i make all my own cards, but if I am in the mood to cross stitch, that is only for the closest family and friends.  The rest are just done in decoupage.  Mind you, now the postage has gone up for cards thicker than about an eighth of an inch, it gets more expensive to send 3D cards out.

Yes, Postage is an Issue, Ann, but I buy first Class Stamps through the Year, then when they are weighed, pay the Difference. It does cost a Fortune, and I am the Eldest of Nine, so have a Ginormous Family, but think they are worth it
