Did you get it? I stayed up last night to see what all the fuss was about... Linda (A Crafting Journey) worships 'Lord Tim of Holtz' as she calls him - I watched.... and have to agree - he makes it look so easy (they all do) to come up with really fabtabulous pieces of arty things. So... I JUST gave in and bought the TSV...
THEN added to it and bought the...
Just don't tell my OH (he went to work before I ordered it/them). Watch this crafty space...
On another note - remember my last post of the little bag with the handmade flowers on - I said it was winging its way to someone special and couldn't reveal what was inside:
Well this found its way, thanks to Mr Postman, to WIPSO at A Stitch In Time. Wispo blogged about receiving her little gift this morning before I'd even turned on the PC!!! She has become a special friend - we exchange e-mails and she has been soooo kind and supportive while i've been off work sick - and this was a token of my appreciation and thanks for being there - and listening to my going on about my aches and pains!!
I would also like to thank EVERYBODY who leaves really lovely comments and regularly visits my blog - you've made me realise that I wish i'd have discovered blogland long ago. I've only been blogging since beginning of January this year and already have 'met' so many great, talented, generous and kind crafters.
Anyway - I also made a card for WIPSO then added a tiny picture of the poppy canvas she made which is on my craft room (conservatory) wall. Here is a pic of the card:
If you pop over to her blog (and why not have a look in the shop - Sisters Crafty Creations while your about it), you'll read about her reaction and see what lovliness they have for sale... I already have a couple of items on order which I can't wait to receive.
Anyway, I said i'd reveal what was in the little gift box once it had reached its destination:
- Edited instructions (removing all my waffle) for making the flowers
- Some pages from an old book - to make the scripty looking ones
- A kebab stick - cut into two pieces
- A template for the large flower
- A template for the smaller flower
- A heart shaped chocolate
- Some punched out flower stamens
Thanks for dropping by, big hugs,

p.s. will blog some cards later that I was making at silly oclock this morning :O)
