I Got the Pip

A Sweet little Cherry Pip to be precise...but I've also got the pip with SN. Now we all know that there is a recession on..and not many of us crafters can afford to splash out these days...and soon I'll have to kerb my crafty spending again as I'll be out of work..anyway...I been looking at these sweeties and really wanted £4.95..not toooo expensive...I did my order online with Funky Kits..only to be disappointed to see they have a minimum order of £5.00. Ummm...I checked their other stamps..and digi's and you have to buy more than one to cover I don't think that's nice. I actually emailed Funky Kits/Sugar Nellie and asked them why they have a minimum order of £5.00 when most of their stamps are £4.95..I'm afraid to say that I haven't had a reply. This is not good customer service. I didn't want to buy more than one...but I had no choice if I want to add a Little Pip to my I succumbed and bought Candy Pip too....and then the p&p was £1.99...Ok I got them the next day so that WAS good but the cost of the postage was for a large first class envelope...and we all know that isn't 1.99..but hey I suppose we have to take overheads into consideration...and the padded envelope!!!

As you can see I'm very pleased with the little Pip I wanted...she is coloured with Prisma pencils the DP's are TH..and I finished with loads of WOC flowers, a gorgeous organza bow and pearls...

But I'm afraid to say..I wont be buying anymore from SN mainly because I think its sharp practice to have a minimum order over the price of their stamps which means you have to spend more money than you want...but more to the point is the fact they couldn't be bothered to answer my email.

OK moan the other stamp I bought?? I had to use a couple of times...and is now on eBay...
Have Fun!

Hi guys...I'm not having a good week on the whole..the little black cloud is still there..cant seem to shake it...and today I'm having to cope with food own fault...the perils of microwave cooking when you cant be bothered to do anything else...ugh!!

Finished with spotty organza bow..gorgeous WOC flowers and a cute little butterfly charm...(just realised is green...thats exactly how I'm feeling Yuk!) Anyway thank you for popping by and for all your lovely comments..I really appreciate them all

Gone a bit Moody today

Hi...Now if you follow my blog you will know that nearly all my creations are in pastel colours..pretty pinks blues..etc..Anyway..on Saturday I was feeling quite down and as you all know there is nothing better than a bit of stash shopping to get rid of the bought some BG paper Sweet Threads all very yummy and I treated myself to a Gorjuss Girl..well it looks (and feels) like that the little black cloud hasn't quite gone away yet...

You can see that I've gone all moody with the colours...She is coloured with Copics..topped up with Polychromo Pencils..I masked the image and then cut a wavy piece of card and the stippled the background with Distressed ink..added some gorgeous WOC Flowers and super tulle Bow, pearls and sparkle..

My dark mood wont last long..I think its the weather really..oh I long for a holiday..but how things are at the moment..not sure I'll get away this year..
Anyway..hope you all have a good week..I hope to be back when I've cheered

Hi all..I hope this finds you well....I'm having to do 'One for Two' this week as my time is not my own at the moment.. Mum is needing more care these days and I'm struggling to get any time to craft...but my contract at work finishes beginning of August so although I'll be out of work..I'll have more time then...
Anyway back to my card...there is a super sketch over at Just Magnolia and I have combined that with this weeks Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge - Wings 'n Things.
I used a sweet Hanglar stamp and delicious Magnolia papers...coloured with copics and added gorgeous WOC flowers, spotty ribbon and pearls to finish.
Sorry its such a quick post...Normal service will resume shortly..
Happy crafting!!
