I had problems at the end of October with the website not wanting to upload any new items which we found to be diskspace!!!! I had used it all :o) We upgraded which meant I had to swap my server (nothing is simple is it?) which took ten days, then I had to upgrade my hosting which took another few days. Once I thought we were up and running again my computer decided to die!!!!
So now I am a good 20 days behind with uploading new items and updating the website. I will be working on it all next week so please bear with me.
As the computer has well and truely died this means that I have lost every single email sent to me!!!! I know that there were some of you waiting for items to come in and I had said I would contact you. I WILL NOT be able to do this now as the emails have disappeared. If you were wanting something please can you email me again, sorry !!!!
I have had some My Favorite Things stamps and die-namics in that I know some of you were waiting for and I will keep these off the website until I think I've heard from everyone although I have already got more on order :o)
I'll keep updating this blog and sending out newsletters to keep you updated on items being added.
Hoping you're all enjoying the weekend :o)

Tracy contacted me tonight to ask me to let you all know that she is having major computer problems again, the wretched thing went and crashed on her tonight and she is now without a computer. She can’t send out any orders as she can’t get anything printed off so please bear with her.
If you need to contact her urgently please email me and I will pass your messages on for you.

Hi peeps, Dawny P here and hope you are all OK.
I thought I’d share a little something today that I did for Tracy for a mag recently ….
… and this is it.
It’s such an easy to card to make and takes next to no time and I think it’s really pretty.
And practically everything I used to make it is available from Tracy over at the Dies To Die For website :)
Shopping List - click on the name and it will take you straight to the right place on the website :)
CC Designs Honey August rubber stamp, Copics Ciao Marker Pens, Inkssentials - White Opaque Pen, Craftwork Cards Digital Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock, Wild Rose Studio Polka Dots Paper Stack, Martha Stewart - Punch Around The Page Border Punch Set - Eyelet Lace, Nestabilities - Classic Diamonds, Marianne Designs Creatables - Flowers Style 3, Memento Ink Pad - Tuxedo Black, Doodlebug Buttons - Pastel Assortment, Flat Backed Pearls – White, wonder tape,
White and blue card stick and small piece of white organza ribbon were from my stash
Want some making up instructions?
Here you are ……
Mat a piece of 144mm square pink large polka dots paper onto a piece of blue cardstock and trim to leave a narrow border. Stick to the front of a 152mm square white card base.
Cut a piece of white cardstock to 128mm square and punch around the edges using the Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page Border Punch Set. Cut a piece of square pink small polka dots paper to 100mm square and stick onto the punched panel. Stick centrally to the front of the card base using clear foam pads.
Stamp the image onto a piece of Craftwork Cards Digital Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock and cut into a diamond shape using the largest die from the Nestabilities set. Colour with Copics Ciao Marker Pens and highlight cheeks, knees and the flower in her hair with white opaque pen. Stick centrally to front of card base.
Make a bow from the white organza ribbon and stick to the front of the card in the bottom left hand corner using a small piece of Wonder Tape. Die cut 2 flowers from the Marianne Designs Creatables Flowers set, one in blue and one in white. Stick a pink button in the centre of the white flower and then stick onto the blue flower. Lift the edges of the white flower to add dimension then stick on top of the bow using a small piece of Wonder Tape.
Decorate with flat backed pearls.
And that’s it – easy peasy :)
I hope the instructions help and that you enjoy making this as much as I did. Have fun and happy crafting :)
Hugs, Dawny xxx
