One of my favourites on the list is the Greenhouse Gala designer paper, usually £8.75 but now only £7.00. In the pack you get 12 double-sided sheets of 12" x 12" paper which you can use to make all sorts of beautiful bags and boxes, cards and scrapbook pages. Here's a little card and some treats I made using some of the papers.
This paper is so dynamic it needs little more than some coordinating lengths of ribbon and a stamped and punched sentiment! The sentiment is from Perfect Punches - the quickest way to add a sentiment: stamp it, punch it, attach it!
These Green and Blacks mini chocolate bars make lovely treats when wrapped in the papers and decorated with ribbon, punched flowers, leaves and brads. I gave this little set to one of my lovely hostesses to say thank you for booking a party. If you live somewhere vaguely near Buckingham and would like to book a fun stamping party with me I'd love to help. Just send me an email or give me a ring on 01280 820593.

We were talking about hobbies today and I'm not sure if my boys have the hang of it at all. My eldest son cast me a reproachful look, saying that he wished I hadn't thrown out the Argos catalogue as reading it had been his hobby. My youngest son capped this by announcing cheerfully that his hobby was looking out of the window!
Thank you for spending time with me today and do let me know if I can help.
I'll be back tomorrow with Three Minute Thursday. Hope to see you then,
