Dolly Mixtures.....

 Here is a quick card made with one of the ready-coloured images I bought from the show at the NEC. My new paper pad called Cheryl, from the Dolly Mixtures range by Craftwork Cards were a perfect match. The Dolly Mixtures paper pads are gorgeous, lovely coordinating tiny patterns - perfect for cards

A few have asked the name of the teen girls on cards that I featured from the show. They were from The Hobby House, and come in ready coloured die cut sheets from their Kenny K range

I am not sure if this works with the sale items that have up to 50% off, but it's well worth a browse.

Talking of bargains, I was browsing Poundland today and look what I spotted, gorgeous little tubes of micro beads in different colours. The whole pack for £1. Apparently they are meant to be sprinkled onto nail varnish before it dries. I can imagine it would be very irritating to have bumpy little nails, but sprinkled onto a drop of glue in the center of a flower.....perfect

The floor is more or less done - edges etc to do after Easter. We had it laid from the front door/hall into the kitchen, it makes a big difference, the whole space looks bigger. I am finding this whole process quite exciting!

I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend x

    Great deal on those micro beads, I found some tubes of them in the clearance bin a while back for a very good price, they are so fun on cards etc.
    The floor looks wonderful! I love wood floors and have them through out much of our house too. Bet you can't wait until everything is done and back in order.
