Looooong post…


I’m afraid I’m gonna bore you with a very, very long post.. I’m sorry.. but I have just so much to show and tell you *Ü*

First let me show you this card that I made.. I was going to case one of Jorunn’s cards  but it turned out slightly different.. will try again sometime.. [Thanks for letting me hun, you are a sweetie!]


I finally got my hands on some of the new MME papers ‘ Bloom & Grow’ and I think I’m in love!  I absolutely adore these colours and the patterns are fab! Can’t you tell I’m one happy bunny??? lol

I didn’t find it hard at all to be creative with these papers and ofcourse the fabby Sugar Nellie stamps.. infact.. I think I’ve gone a bit overboard.. hey-ho!

I’ve got my mini seedbeads out and made the closure on the heart charm by the tag. the Love & Hugs stamp is from the 99p range found at the Range.

Under the big flower that is on the buckle I have put a magnetic closure, the negative is on the inside [also under the flower]


The sentiment is by Hero Arts and It says:

Follow your heart 
Inspiration will find you 
Find your heart 
Be yourself


Then I got given this award from Gro, Kristine, Daan and Janneke


Thank you so much for thinking of me, I love it!! 😀


Lastly.. but certainly not least!!

There are some very exciting things going on regarding STAMPIN UP!


We only got a brand spanking new Mini Catalogue!!  Yayyyyyy!

All demo’s are able to pre-order all available product all through March, to make up samples and prepare for general release which will be on April 1st and you can order from it until September.

No need to tell you that I spend a small fortune today, there are some fab new stamp sets and punches!!  I can’t wait to receive my goodies!!

If you are in the UK  and would like to become a demo [for demonstration or for personal benefits!!] there is no better time to join.. as you get to order from the mini catalogue before anyone else.. My offer of any free stamp set from the catalogue when you sign up with me still stands 🙂

I will have to stress that you will have to be resident in the UK  if you would like to join..
 For more information you can contact me HERE


See.. I told you it was gonna be a looong post!!

I will leave you all alone for a bit, I’m going to settle down in front of the telly and watch Dancing on Ice, can’t wait to see Ray’s routine.. he is just Amazingly good!!

Have a great evening ya’all

Hugs, Marlene x
