Remember the Midnight Caller?

QC1a

You know the guy that used to have a radio show ... never slept and solved murders and things on his days off! Well I am the midnight crafter! I am not actually ... I made it up ... I am safely tucked up in my bed ... either sleeping or still gawping at Wendy Vecchi's fabulous article in Stamper's Sampler! Have you seen it? I managed to get my grubby little mitts on a copy today ... boy does that lady rock!

I also need to apologise ... I was out today ... seeing the wonderful Lin ... who is poorly and needs lots of wishes of wellness to make her better and the lovely Karen ... my super duper personal shopper ... she is just the best when it comes to stash!

I got side tracked ... sorry ... I need to apologise to half the WOYWWers ... for the first time ever ... I did n't get to you all in one day ... tinternet was on a go slow and I lost patience ... I promise I will finish the rounds in the morning!QC1

Anyways ... now we have established I am sorry and that Lin is wonderful but poorly and Karen is lovely and fabulous at stash shopping and I am not the midnight crafter ... I need to tell you that tomorrow will be spent ... die cutting everything in sight ... I have nearly all the new Lord Tim of Holtz dies ... got them today :0) You know Tim ... the man that could make the UK's general election campaign interesting with just an inch sized piece from his paper stack and a tiny attacher staple. Talking of Tims papers ... guess who got those too :0)

The card is Crushed Olive and Broken China Distress inks ... Olive archival ... Ranger of course and the new Paper Artsy Flora and Fauna stamps ... layered and coloured in with Marvy le Plumes ... how cute is that little owl???

I will be seeing you all in the morning ... sweet dreams! Only 3 more sleeps to Ally Pally :0)

Must remember to pop in more often - have just whizzed thro some of your older posts and Wow! those cards, tags etc are gorgeous. I could be tempted to dash out and buy some of Tim's goodies so that I can have a go!!

Fabulous Linda - yes you and the art hehe Love the colour and think I need those stamps! I've got a few of Tim's dies but unfortunately now have to wait for the new machine to come out as I still have the old Sizzix one and the big dies are too wide but can use my 2 'On The Edge' dies but only to make a narrow edge IYKWIM.
