Found a Bargain!

We had some more sad news in Weymouth....I don't know if you were aware but there used to be three crafting outlets in our small town - Craft Central, a lovely little craft shop at a place called Brewers Quay and a craft shop in our main post office in town. Well the shop at Brewers Quay closed down a little while ago and a few weeks back Craft Central closed as well (apparently, it's gone into liquidation). Now our Post Office is in the hands of an Administrator......can you believe it! The good thing to come from this is they had a closing down sale - everything half price! Because I've been so good and haven't bought anything in a VERY long while and have managed to sell alot of my stamps I don't use, treated myself to my favourite papers and card....My Minds Eye and Bazzill, so be warned, you will be seeing alot of this paper and just to prove my point, here's one I made earlier lol!!!



I'm back using my sewing machine again, however, please don't look too closely as I'm having problems with getting the tension right on it and the stitching isn't as neat as it should be! When I was sorting out my craft stash found a Tim Holtz distressing tool which I've never used so I'm really lovin' this at the moment.


The image is Sweet 'N' Sassy and has been coloured with Promarkers with some paper piercing around the edge. Papers are My Minds Eye, c.s. is Bazzill. Sentiment is from SU as are the scallop, scallop edge and corner rounder punches I have used.

Must get on now as I've got to get the boys sorted and somehow manage to get Sam off the Wii!! Have a great weekend.

Love the card Jo, the papers are delish! I've lost my Crafts Central too ... didn't even know it was closing. We do still have 2 craft shops in the town but they can be so expensive.

I've been thinking about your (tena lady) cake and was a little unsure of what else to put in it lol .... disposable knickers perhaps and some fem fresh pmsl! mwah Jillix
