Does your Mojo need a quick fix ?

Whether y0ur mojo needs a quick fix or
you're just sick of looking at the same old stamps ? Running out of fancy paper and need a card like NOW ! Well here is the perfect solution !
Pinkpetticoat !
The instant download image stamp !
They are all the rage in cards ... and you just chose one , pay by paypal , click on the link you recieve in an email and download your chosen images to your pc, print - then colour them in using pencils , chalks or prismas or just keep it plain. They are also available on cd format too !

They have a great range of images, monograms and background patterns ( loads of colours ) with an image for most occassions you'll never be stuck again !

I personally have always been abit scared of using downloads - but im so pleased i had a go. On their website is a link to the blog that has all the links on how to do it and some great ideas and inspiration. Also on the blog is a help guide that makes unzipping the file real easy.

I think they are fabulous - especially if you dont have all the equipment for stamping what a great and easy way to have an image . prices start at £1.99 You get 6 images ( each slightly different ).The cd format contain a collection.
Heres the link

Enjoy ! ...... post by Maddy Hill

Well well well Miss Joan look what you've done !

Well i can only say i was so shocked and so very pleasantly surprised when i recieved a knock at the door and there was one of the members Joan stood at my door holding something it her hand and beaming like a cheshire cat
Now Joan used to be the craft clubs tea lady but decided she wanted to have a go at making cards !
We lost our tea lady and gained a member ! and wow she really has surprised everyone - Joan had never made a card before . A few weeks on she has now bravely had a go at the monthly scrappy challenge "Altered"!
The pic is of Joans first altered item . No wonder she was beaming like a cheshire cat ! I just love the little crochet lid cover and skirt - how brill is that !

Well done Joan your altered coffee mate tin is fab!

Altered Sugar Pot ! - Tons 4 Buns ! - designed by Maddy Hill (class teacher )

This sugar pot i found in a cheapy shop in Leeds . I love anything with a gimmick to it so i designed alittle pot for Fairy cup cakes that included the yummys you need to make your fairy cup cakes that extra special and called it Tons 4 Buns !

Theres alittle mini book with a stamp fairy that has the recipe for fairy cakes in ! The lid is stamped with fairies and daisies and i used stazon ink for this.
The little pots are from Asda.

Waterfall Class makes ! post by Maddy Hill

Jean and Anita !

This was a class i took a few months ago and proved a popular make.
The card in the picture was made by a member of the craft club.
The waterfall cards were made by using double sided card and made such a difference to the finished result. I have to say that each members card turned out stunning ! well done Ladies
