A few things to share, firstly  a card using a stamp from the Sugar Nellies range.  A luggage tag has the image mounted on it bought in a pack from WH Smith, papers from a stack of male designs name escapes me, stamped name using Karen Foster Snap Stamps (love these) and lastly Skittle-Dee-Doo Sizzix Decorative Strip for the 'U Rock' sentiment, brilliant investment, I got mine for about £12.

Second a picture of Livvy the other day, looking like she was living in Siberia, we were seeing Grandma who likes to see Livvy 'wrapped up warm' . Livvy does have a tendency to get wheezy when she has a cold, so when we see Grandma we bundle her up a bit so we don't get told off!
The weather here today was lovely and fingers crossed the forecast says the same again for us in our little corner of world tomorrow.  
Must just plug a few places in Bristol that have some great bargain craft items, the first is called Rajani (in Fishponds) and it is a huge store selling everything imaginable, a huge range of candles and masses of picture frames, my fave purchases are packs of shaded card in varying sizes, suitable for card making and at 89p a pack they are a steal.  I will upload a photo of these tomorrow. Today I bought Red shades and Purple shades, but don't tell Neil.  They also do sweets and choccies branded and un-branded for bargain prices, great for all those lovely treat boxes and bags that I am seeing on all the clever crafters blogs at the moment.  They do have a large stationery and craft section, in my opinion some of this can be a bit cheap looking, but worth a rummage!  Another note to self -do not give him this blog address until this post is at least on page 3, he'll never read past page 2!  
There is a lovely Craft shop in Kingswood called 'Hooked on Crafts', with a very friendly and helpful owner, their stickles are the cheapest I've found locally.  Nice selection of stuff that isn't available at places like Hobbycraft including easymount.
Will add some more local bargain plugs soon!
