We are very, very excited!  Firstly we are delighted to introduce to you a fantastic new Teamie by the name of Willy, from the Netherlands.  She can be found, along with her very lovely stamping and craftwork, at: Just do it -  She has a beautifully arty touch to her makes and we so look forward to seeing more of her work with our stamps.  Here we have a make from her just completed featuring CI-449, CI-214 and CI-186....

..... loving it!

.... and here is another make we spotted on her blog recently....

Gorgeousness! Hope you will join in and welcome her to the team.

Our other excitement is because we have managed to put another YouTube video together in a slightly different format, and we do hope you like it and find it useful?!  It shows how I went about making some master sheets for backgrounds recently..

Here are some of the finished decorated card sheets that I made with this method, with some more detailed close-ups....

Stamps used above are CI-443 and CI-461.  I have been playing with the sheets, along with CI-442 and CI-370, and I'm sure there will be more makes to come.....

..... I think they will prove very useful for quite some time.

Finally I have a couple of very pretty Valentine's tags to share with you by teamie Flo, featuring stamps CI-449 again, CI-456 and CI-410, many thanks Flo.  Nice lolly sticks too Flo!

Bye for now,
Back soon,

p.s.  Many thanks for all the sweet birthday wishes you sent me for my big birthday earlier this week!
