Just a little make...

Hi! hope you are enjoying your Saturday?
A quick card with one of the new stamps from the states( sorry-i feel that i may have left my mojo in the States).
My lovely Hubby took me to The Great American Stamp Store in Westport-Connecticut which was lovely and full of crafty goodies.
They had so many rubber stamps and a lovely range by
Memory box.
The lady was so nice too and gave us directions
for a ride along the coast line which was so pretty.
Just couldn't resist these :)
(i think i have a bit of an
addiction to trees/twig stamps)

The cushion is from Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts Store,
the big button too and a little coin(Dime)
to show its size.
Just thought you might like a peek :)
thanks so much for stopping by,
see you soon,hugs all.Lou.xx

Hi there Lou,
It's lovely to see you blogging again, I bet you had a blast on hol's with your family...
I could kick myself as I wasn't into card making when I went to America, mind you I suppose it's a good job or I would have drove my lot crazy wanting to find all the crafty places...lol

All your goodies look delish, I am so green...lol
Love your card, and hey matey, theres nothing wrong with your mojo, your card's as fabulous as ever, I can't wait to see the next one...

Welcome home

How fun! I can imagine it would be so much fun to go to a craft store in another country. Was there variety you haven't seen before?
Glad you had a fun trip. I've never been to New England, but my brother just moved to the East Coast so I think I'll be making a trip soon.

Glad you had a lovely time with your family in the US.

Lou I don't know how you do it you've been half way round the world only just got back and your making a fab card, with new stash. It sounds like you had a great time and your hubby is so good, my Nick wouldn't take me to a craft shop even in the UK let alone whislt on holiday.
Your card is so lovely and so you. I think you do have a thing with trees & branches, best watch if we go away on one of those craftie weekends with our crafting buddies.
See you soon. Nicola xx

Hi Twiggy, wowzers what a collection,it all looks superb, I LOVE that cushion, and that button can't wait to see what you do with that, the stamps are all so you, and the ribbon looks fabulous,like the look of that paper pad with leaves on too, will need to have a closer look if thats ok.

I really really dont think you left your mojo in America, its right here and on your blog and as brilliant as usual.

hope to see you soon, been to Sir stamp today, though about calling but thought I would let you get back to normal.
see you soon love chris xx

Hi Lou,pleased you had a good holiday - and to find a wonderful shop full of stamps would just add to the enjoyment!. You have the ability of making a simple stamp come to life and I can't wait for the next one to turn up on your blog so get crafting.
See you soon

Hi Lou

I'm still on my mad catch up from my holidays, seems to be taking me forever. Mind you not helped by new puppy muts, not the brightest idea right on the back of our hols.

My Mojo's still missing as well, prefered the watmer weather I think. But your's looks to be intact to me, super work as always.

Please you had a good holiday

Wow, I`m soooooooooo jealous, I would have to take extra suitcases just for the stash I`d bring back if I went to America ! Love this card and can`t wait to see what you do with all your new lovely stamps. I`m the same with tree stamps - can`t resist I`m a bit of a closet nature freak !! hugs Sara xx
