This is a wee prototype for a workshop I will be doing sometime in Aug/Sept at Stampers Grove in Edinburgh, I will post the date once confirmed 🙂

I thought I better get cracking with a wee prototype and do a basic one to start with, love how it works and will be working on more for samples for the workshop.

Wishing you a Choc Chip Cookie Day


I was catching up on my twitters and noticed that jennifer mcguire had a link to a couple of cards that dawm mcvey had made using Hero Arts Stamps…. well I continued reading Dawn’s blog once I was there and noticed she had a colour challenge on the go, and I had made a card a few days ago that was just the right match of colours, so I have modified this post so that I could enter into the challenge 🙂


I have wanted a particular couple of sets of Hero Arts Stamps for a long time.. and Julie over at A Card 4 U ordered them in especially for me.. I placed my order yesterday and they arrived today.. how is that for a great service!
