Good morning everyone,
                                        I haven't posted for a while so apologies for that - I have been so busy with a number of up coming and exciting projects a couple of which I can tell you about.

I have been approached by a publisher and writer to illustrate a number of children's books. There will be a total of 35 books (11 of which have been written). I am very excited about this and am really looking forward to seeing the 1st book completed - Sarah Hill is a very talented writer and her stories are perfect for my illustrations. I need to have 15 illustrations finished by June which doesn't sound a lot however, a lot of planning and hours go into each illustration so I have a huge amount to do.

I also have a really great project coming up regarding Glamoureyes. It's going to be a good few months of preparation but will be worth it all in the end. I unfortunately can't discuss anything at present but what I will say is the lovely Kathy Mills will be involved. I will keep you updated.

As you know I am a designer for Daisytrail. I have just completed my 'Summer Seaside' digikit for them which will be released mid June and have to create a bundle (3) of kits for them for July ( being released in September). They are such a wonderful company to work for and I hope you will pop over for a look I have so much work ahead of me but I absolutely love it.

My talented mother-in-law (and one of my DT's) is new to the blogging world and is in the process of creating a blog. Please show her some support by following her . Many thanks.

I'd like to say a huge congratulations to my wonderful DT Caroline Spice who won the 'Craft Kathy' competition. Kathy loved all the entries but especially loved Caroline's with it's richness of colours and creativity. Brilliant card from such a talented lady. Thank you to all who entered.

Evening all my lovely crafters apologies for not 'blogging' for a little while, I have been extremely busy not only with Glamoureyes stuff but also creating my latest 'Life's A Beach' digikit for the lovely Daisytrail. I have also had 3 very sick children on my hands as well as not being in perfect health myself.

Anyway, I am very excited about my latest competition which is being judged by the lovely Kathy Mills, the prize being x3 of my clear stamps of your choice ( excluding the sets), x5 digistamps of your choice and best of all the winners card will be shown on Create & Craft. All cards must be made using one of Kathy's boards. Please email me if you would like to enter and I will send you my 'Crafty Kathy' stamp. I have put some of the entries cards under the competition details on the competition page.

I am nearly finished my digikit for Daisytrail so once that is completed I will be back to focusing on my stamps especially 'Following Phoebe.'

I would like to leave you all with these two gorgeous cards made by Caroline using my 'baking Phoebe' digistamp. She is so talented - please have a look at her blog, it's lovely

Hope everyone is well.

Hi everyone,
                     Well I have had a busy busy day. My husband kindly took out 2 of my 3 children ( my middle child has been really unwell, I feel it's the start of chicken pox) so I have been looking after her and also trying to get my new Daisytrail digikit finished.

My new digikit is one I am really proud of and it's really starting to come together now. I feel so blessed to be one of their designers, I love creating kits and the team are so lovely.

I had little time once finishing the artwork for Daisytrail to colour in some of my digistamps however, I did manage a few which I have attached with this post. I have taken the photos with my phone so the quality isn't great - my aim tomorrow is to purchase a scanner/printer as I am currently popping over to my mother-in-laws to use hers when I need to.

Just a reminder that my competition comes to an end on Monday. In future I will allow a little more time for creating cards for my competitions - there's nothing worse than feeling rushed and I appreciate people lead busy lives and may need some extra time.

Can I again thank all those who continue to support me in my new venture, I am loving what I am doing. Remember to email me any suggestions you have for stamps.

I will leave you with the stamps I coloured in today.

Sleep well. Sarah x

Hello everyone,
                          I hope you are all well. I have a few new digistamps available in my shop. Please check them out. I would love to see what creations can be made from using them. I am continuing to expand the ' Ladies items' collection as I feel some lovely cards could be made using a few different ladies items.

 I have also created a new corner stamp - I will definitely be having a play with colours etc once I get a chance. I have attached some of the new stamps - I do hope you like them!!
