I have mixed feelings about this list as some of the names on it are old favourites of mine. (But of course the new catalogue will have plenty of new offerings to stimulate my creativity so I shall try not to mind too much!) I've used two favourites for today's card. Come and see:
I made this card to say thank you to my kind friend who looked after our house and garden over the weekend when my husband came to join us on holiday in Devon. Do you recognise the little house? It's from the Neighborhood jumbo wheel and has been stamped on watercolour paper, coloured with inks and an aquapainter, and cut out with my sharp paper snips.
This lovely wheel has had 40% lopped off the price and now costs only £5.10! You could unmount the wheel too as I did in this post, and split the buildings up - which would give you houses for a crazy £1 each, plus a kennel! The house is mounted on a strip of paper from the Greenhouse Gala designer range - and it's worth noting that all the paper ranges are retiring except the Patterns tone-on-tone range.
Apparently Samuel Beckett once said "words are all we have" but he had almost certainly never met a crafter! We tend to have loads of images but NEVER enough sentiments - or is that just me?!! The sentiment here has been put together with my stamp-a-majig and three stamps from a brilliant set called Basic Phrases consisting of heaps of words and phrases. They've knocked 25% off this set which is now a bargain at £25.46.

Writing about Basic Phrases has brought a lump to my throat because my daughter and I have had great fun with this set, vying with each other to make the most ridiculous sentiments. We love to make mad wordy things - this is the card I made her for her last birthday for example, using all sorts of sentiment sets. Anyway, that's enough of going to Mumland!
I really appreciate you popping in today and hope you manage to snap up a bargain! Have a great weekend and I'll see you very soon,
