Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Elusive Images - Stamp random giveaway - and me

Hi Friends, thank you all for your kind and caring messages, I really appreciate you visiting and taking the time to write, but life has been somewhat painful and stressful this last couple of weeks and I have been unable to cope, but Dave and I are getting better slowly despite the many difficulties that we are trying to solve at this time. 

Anyway, I have some good news for you for a change!      Elusive Images have just introduced 3 Elegant Ladies themeplates, each of which features a beautiful lady in a fabulous evening gown. Accompanying the lady on each of the plates are a lovely mix of swirls, ornate corners, chandaliers and candelabras. You can see the new stamp sheets in their full glory over on the Elusive Images Design Team Blog where, if you are lucky, you might win one of the themeplates in a random giveaway. You will also get to see some of the beautiful creations made by my fellow DT memebers to give you some inspiration. We all agreed that these stamps would be very pretty to use for wedding themes, making lovely cards to give to the bride and bridesmaids etc, but their versatility does not end there, as the samples shown on the EI DT blog show!

This is one of my cards - I thought this made a lovely thank you card which I would like to dedicate to you all for your good wishes.
