Good morning,

Well, it's getting very exciting over at the new Crafter's Companion store in Chesterfield as we approach our grand opening weekend from the 23rd of September. We have been open for soft trading since last Thursday and the store has been very busy so far. Here's a peek at what the store front looks like - hope you can come and join us over the weekend for lots of fun and shopping!

On a crafty note, we have a brand new challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz today, and this week Jane has chosen the theme of 


Now, this is a nice easy one for a male themed card - here's what I made for a little inspiration ...

Sorry for the poor photo quality - the weather here is so grey and horrible, there is no decent light!

I used my little 'Toot Toot' stamp from LOTV and stamped onto Neenah cardstock in Desert Storm (which is kraft coloured). I coloured with my Promarkers and then layered up using some scraps of design paper from my stash. The little stamped element is also LOTV, and I added a few brown adhesive pearls to embellish.

Hugz, Jan xx


  1. I'm trying very hard to think of an excuse I can use to persuade my OH that we need to spend a few days in Chesterfield. How exciting to be in on the start of such a great project.
    And talking of projects, this is a great one too. That sweet little LOTV image is just perfect for the card and the challenge

  2. Hi Jan this is a stunning card I love it. That is a fabulous image. The new store looks amazing. I would love to visit. Maybe one day. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  3. Fabulous card Jan. Love those images from LOTV. The shop looks fantastic, bit too far away for me though. Sorry I didn't get round to visiting you last week but time just seemed to disappear!

  4. Great card. The shop looks huge! I will have to visit sometime soon, as Chesterfield's not too bad a drive from where I am.

  5. I love this stamp Jan, it is one of my favourite ones to use for those tricky men's' cards.
    I has great fun at the new store on Saturday. It was great to meet you in person. Unfortunately I won't be able to come to the grand opening at the weekend; children's sporting fixtures clash : (
