Important shipping information

Please note that for this release, orders will begin to ship on Tuesday morning. Monday is a bank holiday here and there is no Postal service.

Orders containing the following sets: Say it Loud and Gingham&Co will begin shipping later in the week - the delivery of these sets to me has been delayed and rather than cancel the release of these sets I have decided to go ahead and release them and just make folks aware that the shipping on these will begin later in the week. This is not likely to have much impact as release time is usually busy and the normal 24-48 hour turnaround is slowed down to 3-4 days anyhow. Hope that's ok with y'all!

Did you see I snuck in another little sample?? lol, I found out how to make the pics extra big in blogger!! woohoo!

Dainty doilies and say it Loud are a perfect pair! I love the heat embossing on the vellum - I used white powder and copper powder - yum, and I stamped my doily in PTI vintage cream ink - should have bought a bucket load of that stuff... i'ts fab! Trimmed it out with the Big scalloped circles Spellbinders die  - perfect! Made a wee embellie from another tiny little doily, and added a cream rose, lovely, well, i thought so! lol. Hope it tickles!! See ya later.
