Abbie hot air balloon ride

My daughter was very lucky, last year she won a hot air balloon ride. She wasn't allowed to travel on her own but had a friend who also wanted to go. She was 16 in July and luckly a week ago she was able to fly in the balloon... when she got off she told me she wanted to do a sky dive next xxx

Hanglar with no image

I'm a fan of hanglar, but I had purchased these bargain paper pads and the papers are sooo lovely that I decided that I would use a sentiment from one of the Hanglar kits and this is what I came up with

Just gonna stick everything I have, on ere today

Orange this time, sent to this to my friend for her birthday, this Hanglar stamp isn't one of my favourites I just find that I always struggle with this one :(


When I was a little girl I hated the colour brown, but I just can't get enough of the colour in my card making.

Sorry i havn't been on in ages... my biggest thing to do this year is tidy my shed, I changed furntiture round and really need to sort out everything... its such a mess.

I'm really addicted to hAnglar stAnglar stamps at the minute. And Im really thinking about seeling my 150+ penny blacks :( I have not stamped a penny black this year, and they are just sitting in there boxes. All that money buying them.... very naughty

also had a clear out and put lots of things on ebay to sale. made £95 last time, that funded my trip to the NEC in March.

hope you are all well
