Oyster catchers

One of my favourite places on this gorgeous planet is Anglesey (long before the Cambridges discovered it!), and one of my favourite places on the island is The Oystercatcher. Great restaurant with a great philosophy and also deliciously tasty local food. But enough about that, I also love the actual oystercatcher birds who visit Anglesey, with their busybody ways and constant chattering. So when I saw the Wetlands stamps (see below for link) they were ordered straight away...

I made my two sisters oystercatcher cards and one of them was even kind enough to frame it!  Here are some photos:

It was a simple watercoloured backgrounds using inks, and stamped in black ink but to be honest I kind of love it! Hope you like it too :-)

Stampin' Up! Retiring List

The 2014/2015 Stampin' Up! catalogue is about to come to an end so they have announced all the products that will not carry over into the 2015/2016 catalogue.  Lots of scrummy bargains to be had, and many at 50% off!  What's not to like?!

Retiring Stamps

Retiring Accessories (ribbons, papers, inks, dies, embellishments etc)

There were loads of technical difficulties with the website yesterday, but it is up and running today. And the products are definitely first-come-first-served so if you see something you like get it whilst you can.

I'll be sad to see some of the products go, especially some of the colours I love, but I guess it means we get lots of exciting new things to play with when the new catalogue comes out in June. Links to the two retiring lists are above.

Back soon with some new cards and boxes to show you.
