Crafting!

The very norty Sue pointed out Dilly Beans Stamps was having a sale on their digi stamps. I had bought half a dozen last year and have used them a fair bit, so thought, why not! Went online, ordered 10, chose 10 free and went to bed. In the morning there they are in my inbox :) And an error had been rectified on my order before I even woke up! Now that's service :)

I am seeing two of my closest friends tomorrow and we've supported each other a lot over the years so decided to make them a little something. I trawled the web for ages for find the right quote - and even then tweaked it a little. Digi stamp; coloured in with Promarkers; Stickles on the wings; and some beads from Poundland that are meant for finger nails on the heart! So a very simple card for my first entry into a Dilly Stamps Challenge

That was part one! I then decided to make something to eat - and as Debbie had a challenge on her Gifts From Your Kitchen page, decided to make some truffles. Haven't made any for years! They are covered in chopped mixed nuts, chocolate strands and white sprinkles. I did think about making a box, but cba! Then found these lovely patio tea-light holders in Poundland. Have put some mini marshmallows at the base and then a selection of the truffles on top. Finally tied the cards to the holders with fibres and voila!
