LAST POST FOR JANUARY!?

I have some projects to show you tonight that have been sent over by the team recently - thanks so much ladies, you are so kind - hopefully they will brighten our lives on an otherwise dull, wet January day (at least it has been here on the east side of the country).  Must also thank you all for the continuing encouraging and caring comments you are leaving on a regular basis - they certainly do warm my heart!

I am going to show you one of two projects I have here by lovely LYNNE - the other will follow at a slightly later date.  This project uses stamp CI-336 and postmarks from CI-122 & CI-124 to adorn a stunning hanging so beautifully:


Nice bit of recycling going on there too!  Check out the close-ups (I like close-ups!) -




Then I have one of two printer trays sent over by lovely ISABELLE, where she has used the same hot air balloon stamp as above (and I notice she has a fabulous tag on her site too just now, made with our stamps - so do pay her a visit soon!):


Plus close-ups -


Lots of texture, and loving the rich shiny red on that balloon.



There are of course a few more of our stamps appearing on this tray including CI-221, CI-334 and CI-237 amongst others - very nice!


And I think to finish the display I will show you a lovely creation with a truly patriotic feel by lovely HELEN (lovely being the word of the day I think!) -



This will probably be my last post for January as I am off into hospital tomorrow for a thyroid operation (aaaagh - murmured in a weak small voice!).  I will be back blogging again as soon as I can and of course we will be having the February Challenge soon - although it may be a little later in starting than the 1st of the month this time, so please bear with me.

Also there will be new stamps out very, very soon - to be ably dispatched quickly to their recipients by Malcolm and Kay, plus some must, 'must-have' new products which we think you are going to love.  Watch out for the email, which will also have some info about a little crafting holiday you might like to join us on in March.

Goodnight All.
