Hop on over to my place........

Hello and welcome to my fairly new(ish) blog. This is my very first blog-hop and what a better way to start. I had such a hard time deciding what to use as I love so much of what is in the mini. . You will have joined me here from the very talented http://kraftybiker.blogspot.com/. I just know you will love her designs. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek last week as Sandra is my SU mummy and I went to stay for a few days so we could craft till the wee hours with all the new goodies from the fab mini. . My cards use Plane and Simple, which I think may well be my favourite set so far. I was soooooooo happy to see more 'male' orientated sets in the new mini as I'm sure I'm not alone when it comes to struggling with mens cards. . I used Not Quite Navy and Marina Mist for this card and sponged a sky full of clouds to set the Bi-plane off. For my next card using Plane and Simple. I teemed it with Always Artichoke, Old Olive and Sahara Sand. A band of Early Espresso striped grosgrain gives the card that little extra something. . I just love this set and being a true blue(RAF not football) it will come in soooooo handy and could well be my favourite set from the MINI.
Well I hope you enjoyed your little stop by my blog and keep hopping with http://sarastamper.blogspot.com/ who I'm sure will have something lovely to give us all inspiration.
