Good things come to those who wait... what I told my bf Fee today when she called to say that she doesn't do waiting and wanted to know what I was up to lol!!! I told her my lips were sealed and she will have to wait just like the rest of you : ) Though I must tell you that it's been extremely hard to to tell all and sunder (or is that sundry?) but I don't want to jinx anything just in case.

Now on to more exciting things...I made a card today!!! Actually I made 5 but they're all the same. It felt great to colour after so long. And this little fella was a treat to colour...Cuppycake Huggabugg from Stamping Bella. I'd like to say at this point that I do own stamps other than Stamping Bella but can you tell they're my favourite??? I used my Copics to colour it in adding glitter and a couple of crystals on it's antenae. Can you guess the pp? Basic Grey of course lol. And yes I do have other brands of paper too. Now, can you see that round flower on the ribbon? If you click on the photo you can see that it's actually quite big and sticks out. Any guesses??? It's my new toy...the i-top by imaginisce! (it looks like the crop a dile) I got an email from CraftsUlove and ordered it straight away...think I was one of the first to order it and they sold out straight away. It's not cheap by any means as you need the i-top tool then an i-top punch and then the brads. There are 3 sizes of brads...I ordered medium, but if you order large you have to buy another piece to go with it! But can I tell you....I love it!!! It is so quick and easy to use (bit fiddly the first couple of times) and I think the results are fab. It means you can properly co-ordinate your brads with your project.

That's it for today folks...2 posts in one day. Hope that makes up for the weekend Trace : )

Enjoy the rest of your day wherever you are and I'll catch ya later x

Lovely card (as always)! I never thought I'd see the day that I would like basic grey but you are converting me! Don't think I've heard about the I-top stuff, might google it for a nosey lol. E
