We had a fabulous day on Saturday...

...with a class in the morning and another (different class) in the afternoon! We all had a wonderful time, lots of fun, lots of chocolate and cake, lots of drinks and most importantly - lots of cards!
Here's a small selection of what we made, not everything by any means...

Look at this card above, would you believe that it is made using a sticker?  Made with our Outline Stickers, VW and papers from our new Citrus Paper Pack, this card design was a firm favourite...

and we made this with our Dinkie up, up and away stamp, love the little clouds and this:

with our 3D Butterfly stamp and here's our Dinkie Balancing Act card:

We can't show you anymore cards because we used lots of NEW stamps on Saturday and you will have to wait to see these! 
If you would like to receive one of our free postal newsletters which we are beginning to post out this week, just send you name and address to Gillian and we will add you to the list.

See our web for details of our next class and you can see Steve with lots of our goodies this Sunday, 27 November at Taunton, Junction 24 Market Way North Petherton Somerset, TA6 6DF

Is it cold enough...

ooh a bracing walk this morning with our two doggies; Buddy and Martha, definately hat, scarves and gloves weather, brrr...
Last week I posted pictures of two of our lovely £2.00 Christmas stamps because I suddenly felt all Christmassy (the C'mas tingle), it's still there, thanks to the cold, looking forward to putting up fairy lights soon - just the thing to brighten up the dark nights.
Here are two more great little stamps to warm your cockles...

Dinkies Row of Snowmen
Dinkies Row of Snowmen stamp, complete with text: 'in the meadow we can build a snowman', don't they look right at home stamped onto our 'Falling Snowflakes' background paper and our White Tags?
And here they are with our Christmas Jewels paper in the background - we love these little chaps, and, yes - just £2.00

And look - here's our Dinkies Bauble Scottie stamp:
Dinkies Bauble Scottie
The red background paper is from our Christmas Doodles paper pack and here is a photo of Buddy and Martha with their main man, Steve:

Martha is on the left (black and brown) and Buddy is on the right.

Strangely feeling a little bit festive today...

Don't know what it is, might be the weather, heavy grey sky here (Wirral) and quite dark, but suddenly had a little Christmas tingle (do you ever get that, the Christmas 'feeling'?)

So I got looking through some of our Christmas designs and they did the trick, cheered me up on a dull day...SO, thought I would share with you too, feast your eyes upon a delightful selection:

Bauble Hedgehog stamp
We just LOVE our Bauble Hedgehog stamp, can I let you into a secret?  It wasn't supposed to be called 'Bauble Hedgehog' at all, should have been something like 'Christmas Tree Hedgehog' which is more appropriate given that there are no baubles in sight, don't know what happened, can only think that I was having a menopausal moment when naming it... lol

Here are the 'Bauble' Hedgehogs again, mounted onto our Christmas Doodles paper, a great pack comes in 2 sizes and lots of colours.

Nativity Scene
Here is our Dinkie Nativity Scene stamp, again another favourite (and aptly named this time!), the background paper is from our Christmas Jewels papers which come in a choice of colours and sizes and the blank card is our exclusive Elegant Edge cards and envs pack.

Was going to share more designs and ideas but this blog post is in danger of becoming too long (sorry about that) so I will come back another day with more lovely images to share with you.

If you like either of the stamps featured in this post you will be pleased to know that they are only £2.00 each, yep, we think that is so good and you can also find the papers and blank cards mentioned on our web here

Best wishes
