Hope is a wish with a little more Clout.....


Hello there, today I want to share with you such a lovely heart warming story.

Earlier in the week I came across a story shared on Facebook about a lady called  Betty Musker.

Today Betty celebrates her 104th birthday!

She lives in a nursing home and the staff there had asked Betty what she would like for her birthday this year to which she replied " just a card " 
So sweet!
So the staff started a group on Facebook
with the aim to grant Betty's wish and perhaps reach a total of 104 cards, one for each year !
It's been so lovely to see what an overwhelming response they have had from all over the world, it's amazing what the power of the internet can do...they have received over 5000 cards!

So much more than the staff could have hoped for!
 The story even reached The One show on the BBC


fast forward to around 10 minutes in to the show :)

So my card today is to say a big well done to the staff,
Hope is a wish with a little more clout
 an amazing story and an amazing lady!
Happy Birthday Betty xx




Have a lovely weekend!

What's new at The Stamping shed ?

Hello There, it's been a busy week here at The Stamping shed,
 and I have a few things to share with you today.

Why not give the gift of crafting this Christmas?
with The Stamping shed Gift vouchers
A perfect treat for a crafty friend or someone who's looking for a new hobby?
or perhaps your nearest and dearest could treat you to Stamping Shed gift vouchers this christmas?
Sometimes they need a little help in picking that perfect gift.....

 So with that in mind I have available very soon Gift vouchers
 that you can spend at The Stamping shed on Yummy Stampin Up products!

 additionally I will have workshop vouchers too which you will be able to redeem against any number of workshops up to the value of the voucher. A full list of 2015 workshops dates will be given also so you can book workshops in advance.

With that in mind my next workshop is ready and here is what you can make with the lovely Wondrous wreath Stamp and wonderful wreath framelit die set.


This stamp set is available in photo polymer (clear) which makes it so easy to line up when over stamping layers and the quality is fab!
