One more day!!


.. is all there is left! Yep.. One more day to pre-order the Gorjuss girls as a set.

Karen has kindly agreed to me giving you a tease of these little cuties and also to remind you that after tomorrow [Feb 16th] the pre-orders are closed and the Gorjuss girls will not be available to buy as single stamps until late March.. so get yours over at FUNKY KITS while you can!! 🙂


Over at BASIC GREY CHALLENGE BLOG the theme this week is hearts.. and as I’ve used Sultry Papers by BG I’d like to enter this card over there 🙂

Other materials for my card are BG Sultry page elements, heart nestabilities, SU! ribbon, journaling pen for doodling, chipboard flowers and glossy gems.

Inside is decorated too..


I’ve added some more glitter and flowers after I took these pictures.. lol

Then I’m sooooo excited to be going to the Stitches Trade Show in Birmingham tomorrow.. I’ll be meeting up with Karen from SugarNellie.. Also meeting up with Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts.. I cannot wait to meet both girls!!! It will be so nice to put a face to the voices and names!

There was a craft show on in Hinckley today.. and I couldn’t not visit it as it is so close by! [any excuse!!] I took my girls and we spend a good couple of hours browsing.. it wasn’t very big, but nice allthesame!  IMAGINATION CRAFTS attended the show and they carry the Sugar Nellie stamps.. and when I looked at their sample boards I found 4 of my own cards being displayed 😀 


I’ll be back a little bit later tonight with some pictures of my room.. I’ve got most of it sorted.. and the majority of the sorting out was actually what was hidden in drawers and cabinets.. but it does look so much better now.. and I’ll show you later, the only problem now is that I don’t want to mess it up again, so I’m not going to craft for a month or so [yeah.. like that is gonna happen!]

For now, enjoy your dinner [if you haven’t had it yet!!] I sure will enjoy mine.. I’m starvin!! lol

Sorry that this turned into such a long post and i hope you’all haven’t nodded off by now!!

Hugs, Marlene xx

  • Maria

    Marlene congrats on getting your craft room organized. I hope to achieve this someday. As for the card, it is stunning and the colouring fabulous. I hope you will do a tutorial one day on how you colour, especially the hair. I have always wanted to know how to colour black hair and especially with all the beautiful highlights you achieve. I have only ventured as far as the browns. Higs, Maria
