Sunday – and a little Therapy.

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Was tidying away all the prep boxes from Friday’s TV show earlier, and came across the Dandelion card I had cut out, that was on offer in the Super Saver. CLICK HERE I LOVE this design. Many of you may already have it because it was a previous Fresh Cut Die Club Die. A really, really superb one, illustrated by our friend Mel Turner.

Back to work after a weekend in Cornwall

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Back in the Clarity saddle today, after spending a few days down in Cornwall, to pay our respects at dear Pat Hosking’s funeral. To be honest, it really was much more a beautiful celebration of her life than a sad occasion of her death. She had left strict instructions with the family that this was how she wanted it. And that was how it went. The Helston Town band was in the tiny chapel,…

Say it with Flowers One Day Special

Say it with Flowers One Day Special

Hi there Thanks for popping in. Happy Valentines Day! Am I a grump? I was watching all the hype around roses, champagne and chocolate at M&S yesterday, and couldn’t help thinking what a commercial trap Valentines has become. Remember when we used to send an anonymous card to someone we fancied ? And that was it! Nothing more. Did you ever receive a S.W.A.L.K. card? I remember as a teenager, finding a single red rose on the window ledge outside…
