Spring is in the air

Yes we really think at long last Spring has sprung here in the UK. We have warm weather and sunshine - perfect. Not that we are seeing as much of it as we would like as we are receiving so many new products we are kept busy unpacking and uploading for you.

So some hi-lights over the last few days include.......

The gorgeous Bo Bunny Gabrielle - we have craft packs, separate sheets and matching ribbon and of course our perfectly matched card stock

we have Prima Trinkets so many to chose from?

and staying with Prima the delicious A4 pads

Finally a couple of LO's from our recent crops - fancy joining us look HERE

Love how you can use the Nestabilities Lacy Square to add dainty accents

and you can never have enough Pom Pom Trim on a page - did you spot it round the title?

Keep watching our Latest Additions as stock is arriving all the time

We are totally in love with the new Marianne Design Dies and even more of them arrived this week. The Cupcake Die was used for this card below. To get all the detail you need to cut and then emboss with the tan embossing mat

And for the card below, you need the tag and this Flowers and Leaves set

Aren't the cards gorgeous? Wish we could take credit!! They were done by Marianne's own Design Team! Thanks Marianne for sharing the images!

Must go now and get organized for our Birthday crop tomorrow!!
