Goodbye Summer, hello Autumn

Sniff, it is nearly time to say goodbye to the gorgeous Summer Mini.  So if you had your eye on that lovely Butterfly Punch, Sweet Treats set, the bright designer buttons in playground and sherbert, the cute Wagon full of Fun set, spotty red ribbon, the DSP etc.....don't leave it too late!  They may or may not appear in the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue, but they definitely don't appear in the upcoming Autumn Mini.  Make sure you contact me by the end of this month (not long to go!) to place your order.

I've been busy making improvements to the Craft Lair as you know, might post a picture here later!  I've also been starting to play with some new toys - making samples with the Autumn  Mini stuff for our big Launch on the 18th April.   If you are sittting on the fence about coming to the Launch, let me tell you - it will be a fun day out!  You can have some "me time" and come home with some gorgeous creations you made.  What a relaxing and productive way to spend a day!

Here is a sneaky peek:

 Isn't it a gorgeous stamp?    Anyone know what technique I used to make these?  Add your comment, and I'll rustle up something as a prize for the first correct answer!

Here is a closer look:

While I was making these, I had company:

I have no idea what the technique as a whole is called, but it looks like the background stamp was embossed, then a stamp in bleach over the top. Haven't seen that done before, but it sure is pretty, love that stamp.

Well apparently I've changed my name to xxx. Not sure why it did that, mustn't have logged in correctly.
