Morning crafters, I hope you all had a great weekend and maybe managed to sneak in some lovely crafting time?

Such an adorable stamp and another I’ll be sad to see go, if you don’t already have it in your collection you can get it today for just £4.50 with free worldwide postage

Have a look at them all on the website here and if you spot a few more that you missed you can take advantage of our multibuy offer, get 5 small stamps for just £20.00 and again this is with free postage

Stocks are limited on many of these stamps though so if you have a favourite then remember it will be first come first served!

Lou coloured this with the new Inktense pencils and we have an exclusive set available on the website. Our Dena chose 15 essential colours to get you started and I’ll have a colouring tutorial by her to show you using them later in the week. They are quite a new product and many of our DT have swapped and are enjoying using them

Also on her card Lou used one of our useful Journaling Tags and some elements from the Grunge Christmas Postmarks set, full details will be on her own blog
