It's been another really busy week both on Create & Craft and at my shop.
Thank you for your support and orders. It's also nice to know that so many people are taking up crafting as their new 2012 hobby!
But a word of warning, and I am sure that there are a lot of people who will back me up when I say, it's highly addictive! Ha ha!
Thank you for the feedback on my Flower Patch Collection. I am so pleased that you like it and are having fun using it. Please don't forget to send in your photos to me. I would love to see what you do with the Flower Patch Collection! If you would like your cards to be in the video we will be doing of viewers cards made using the Flower Patch Collection, please scroll further down my blog for full details.
Here are some "New & Back In Stocks" available in the shop and on-line.
