Plum Pudding

Before I get on to today’s post I just want to say that my thoughts and prayers are with those in Norway.  Such sad and difficult times for so many.

Not long now till  the newest Lili of the Valley Christmas release!!  I hope you have been loving the oodles of inspiration on the Ideas to Inspire blog, and do check back later this afternoon when all the winners of the Christmas in July week will be announced there as well as on the Wild Orchid Crafts blog.

So today I have a card made with the Plum Pudding image to share with you (and yes I wish it was the real thing with lashings of custard rofl).  The paper is from the new Papermania Christmas pack (sorry I don’t know what it’s called as I chucked the promo sheet away that comes in the pack – not a clever move Bev!)   The French Pastry doily die is from Dies to Die For – isn’t it delish, and it’s a whole die and cut’s beautifully, no faffing with a half die for me!  The die that I have used to cut the image is from Go Kreate, it’s Frilly Square Frame #9.   The lace, satin ribbon, holly berries and poinsettias are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the holly is a Woodware punch.

Oh no, I just popped across to Dies to Die for to get a link and saw the new Memory Box dies are up for pre-order and now I am destitute!!  Well I just had to have them now didn’t I.  They are absolutely stunning so go take a peek here if you dare!!  And if you like we can form a club for destitute die addicts rofl.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I am going to be supervising the garage/utility to craft room conversion (yep I won that battle!!)  The new ceiling is going up today.  The walls have all been insulated and all the electrics have been done with loads of plug points.  The new doors are in at the front and the stable door has been ordered to replace the back door – it’s starting to look GOOD!!  My poor hubby has worked like a Trojan bless him, and no he’s not for hire lol.

I will be back with the WOC candy winner this afternoon, and the Simon Says Stamp winner tonight.
