Hello and hope you've had a good weekend.

We have now finished the decorating and I think everything is back in the correct room - I can actually see the floor in my bedroom  again now so I suppose that means its back to hoovering lol ! Might have some crafty time again soon.
Todays cards are some from a while ago that I don't think I've shown you. Colours are Rich Razzleberry, Perfect Plum and Pool Party............

Stamping has been done with the lovely Summer Silhouettes set- love playing with this set

This time the boat has been stamped from the Moving Forward set and paper pieced with Pool Party designer paper. Like how the chevrons give the design some movement.

This was made using the two tags die and some of the FREE Sale-a-bration sets and inside..........

.....a mini sewing kit, perfect for your handbag.  Thank you Liz for sending me these .

Hope you like ? x

Happy Valentine's Day

Evening all,

I expect you are all to busy opening the sackfuls of cards and arranging the million bouquets of roses ? No, me neither but I always think its the little everyday things that count !

I decided to use the More Amore papers from the new Spring/Summer catalogue along with a stamp from the new That's the Ticket set- I love that set and am sure I will be using it a lot.

Sorry the picture is a bit blurry but I was waiting for it to be light enough before I rushed out of the door this morning and now it's too dark to take another one.

I put some little love hearts in the mini milk carton-  hope the messages are appropriate lol ! Colours are Pool Party, Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple.

Hubby knows I am disapprove of the price of some of the nicer shop bought cards so he 'commissioned' Isabel to make one for me, knowing it would mean so much more. She hadn't seen the card I made but helped herself to some scraps from my desk and this is what she came up with.................

Lovely isn't it ? Think I might get her to design my next class !

So now we have matching His n Hers cards on the mantelpiece   - I ( heart) Stampin' Up !

Madison Avenue

Happy Saturday,

Hope you are all well ?  Got any more of the white stuff ? It tried here this morning but thankfully not for very long, although they are threatening some more tomorrow - let's hope not !

At my Wednesday class this week we used a lot of items that can be potentially earned free with a qualifying order. Colours are Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango ...........

Stamp set is the SAB set Madison Avenue and the sentiment is from Itty Bitty Banners which is also potentially free.

Can you see my sewing with the Pool Party twine through the punch ? Well, that's about as good as it gets as far as me and sewing are concerned lol !

We also made another card using yet more freebies and an ATC/Gift card wallet that I saw on Anne-Maries blog

I also made an ATC too and decorated the wallet with some designer paper ( free, of course ).

Right , time to tidy up before the (not so ) Happy Wanderers return from the football.

Have a good weekend x

Evening all,

Sorry I have been missing last week , just busy, busy, busy. As well as my card making I had 3 orders for bouquets to do and a bit of DIY going on too ! Or not going on and 29 boxes etc being stored in our bedroom ! Why does emptying one room cause chaos across the whole house ?

I have now added the fabby new Spring/Summer catalogue link  so if you haven't seen it yet, click to the right and have a look. There are some gorgeous things inside- I think the papers are really nice this time and I love the ticket stamps.

Todays card uses another new set , Hearts a Flutter and the matching Framelits (available as a bundle )

Very simple and quick to make too ! Colours are Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla on Naturals Ivory.

I'm sure this set might be used again next week, off to plan my love-themed class !
