I swear they are out to get me...................moths and flying things that is.
Anyone that knows me knows that I am not good with moths or spiders. That is probably an understatement. I HATE THEM.
Well this week they have definitely fought back. On at least 3 separate occasions I have leaped back from the till - in the middle of serving a customer I may add - as I have been dive bombed by a huge moth.
The first couple of times our trainee manager came to my rescue. Apparently he is on constant moth watch at home since his wife doesn't like them either. She will not allow him to hurt them so on these occasions my attacker was gently removed and allowed to fly free.
I'm afraid today he fared less well - no trainee manager only a firm magazine. I'm sorry all you insect lovers but it was him or me :)
Anyway I figured that this led me quite nicely into pictures of one of the cards that I made for Barbara.
This stamp is called Moonfairy and was part of the latest Christmas show that Barbara did on Create and Craft.
I have coloured him/her using distress inks and added some Pearlex to the wings although I'm afraid that it doesn't show up too well in the pictures.
My Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and an EK Success Border punch were also used to good effect.
I'm afraid I seem to be very into my hand made flowers at the moment. There are just so many wonderful tutorials out there and they do add a fantastic finishing touch.
Gotta go now, I have to go back to work and count the cigarettes - 2 hours of Air Con how wonderful!!
Have a good evening.

I am a self confessed 'Stampaholic' living with my family in Surrey.
I am known as the 'Granny in the Attic' and have six Grandchildren

I work full time in a BP Simply Foods petrol station and then craft in
my spare time.
I have written two books. The first on Teabag Folding and the second on
Rubber Stamping, both for Search Press.
I have written numerous articles in the past for magazines including Craft Stamper, Quick Cards Made Easy and Cardmaking and Papercraft.
I teach classes in Purley and have

I am on the Design Team for Woodware and Hobby Art, and have also designed for Imagination Stamps, Stamp Addicts and Clarity. Several of my cards have featured on each of their TV shows.
I am lucky enough to make samples Jane Gill who still designs stamps for Woodware who are now part of Creative Expressions.
