Football Boy

The older my nephews are getting the harder it is to think of cards to make for them. Their passion is football like hundreds of other little boys I'm sure but I still find it hard to think of new ideas and of course they expect Auntie Dawn to come up with another exciting card. This year I thought a door hanger would be a good idea so he could display love of football for all to see. I used a digi stamp boutique image coloured wth promarkers, for the background I used x cut hexagonal dies and some die cut footballs. The letters were cut using sizzix Fruit Smoothie letter dies.

 I hope he liked it.

Exciting new craft shop in Kings Lynn

I'm so excited to let you all know of a new craft shop that has opened in Kings Lynn Norfolk. The shop is called Sprinkle Twinkle and is certainly a very sparkly piece of glitter in a dull business park, I thought we had the wrong place when we drove into the business park but boy was I surprised when I gingerly opened the door. I was warmly welcomed by Natalie and her partner and offered a drink straight away, I had my family in tow (much to their disgust! "not another craft shop mum") Well luckily there was a TV and drinks for them as well, obviously to keep them entertained while mum spent money. Oh I wish I had a large bank account I could have spent a fortune. Natalie had so much to choose from and lots of American brands i.e. Lawn Fawn, that are hard to find in the UK without paying a fortune for postage. They have a website for online ordering at so please do take a look and if your in the area pop in to see them it is a lovely place it's bigger than it looks on the website.

Happy crafting
