Hero Arts Scramble

Hi, it's been a while.

Life can be sooo busy sometimes, school runs, shopping, laundry, appointments.  But tonight I suddenly remembered there was a Hero Arts 90 minute scramble in progress and when I read the challenge - use patterned paper, and something has to go over the edge - for a change, I knew right away what I wanted to do.

Hero Arts Blush designer paper, Spellbinders Labels 22, Hero Arts/Sizzix stamp and die sets Butterflies and Floral, Ranger Archival Ink in Plum, Distress Inks, pearls.

I am loving these new Hero Arts/Sizzix stamp and die sets!  I bought mine's from Kate Walsh when she brought her shop to the crafting event in Athlone a couple of weeks ago.  Luckily I will get another shopping fix from her great selection when she returns to demonstrate at the Crafting Ireland crop on 26th May in the Athlone Springs Hotel.  It's wonderful to have these events in the Midlands, other events in Cork, Limerick and Galway are a bit of a drive.

Thanks for visiting! Ger x.

Have a slice

I didn't get a card made but I did manage to bake this for tea-time.  Had to snap it quick before the family reached it with a knife!

I'd love to sit round a big (crafting) table with you all and have a slice and a cuppa.

Enjoy your Sunday and thanks for visiting. Ger x.
