Class Cards

Good Morning everyone,

Thought I'd post whilst everyone else is still in Tomorrow I have my sister in law coming round to do a class with me and these are the projects we will be making. Its my first class ever and next Saturday I have my sister and a friend coming round to make the same set.... I can't wait.

Yesterday my upliner, Victoria, visited with her 2 little boys. It was such fun running around after Blake who's only one. I think he's going to be an electrician like his daddy as all he went for was wires and anything electrical, especially my hubbys I am hamster sitting for my sister and Zac was fascinated by them, kept calling them "rabbits"...bless. It was such a lovely time and so funny seeing us all chase after Blake.

Thanks for visiting and hope to see you back again soon

Two step bird punch

Sorry I haven't posted for a while but, to be honest, nothing exciting has really happened. I've been planning a craft class that I'm holding on 4 September for family and friends. I will post a picture of the cards and box we are making shortly.
Yesterday was my anniversary, 23 years, so I made my hubby this card

All products used are SU. To create the background I have brayered over whisper white card in So Saffron ink then placed a love heart shape, cut out of a post it note, onto the top. With the shape in place I then brayered again over the whole cardstock with So Saffron. With Pumpkin Pie I brayered over the top of the So Saffron about half way down, then agan with Rich Razzleberry about a quater of the way down from the top. I then removed the post it note to reveal the love heart.

Thanks for stopping by and please visit again soon xxx

Anniversary Card


I've just had a wonderful day with a lovely friend, Karen, crafting at my home, well more talking than crafting I managed to make 2 cards and Karen just used my stamps to stamp out lots of images that she hasn't got to take home.

This is the first of the cards I made and the other one will be put on my blog tomorrow. This if for our neighbours anniversary later this month, they got married on the same day and year as me and my hubby.... how weird is that? All products used are SU except the embossing folder. The ribbon was initially whisper white and I used pixie pink ink pad to colour it and the flowers.

With this card I am entering the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly Challenge White and bright
Crafty Creations Challenge Wedding or Anniversary
Our Creative Corner Its Embossable
Sweet Stampin Challenge Pretty in Pink

Thank you for stopping by and I look forward to reading any comments you wish to leave

Cupcake Mouse Card

I was lucky enough to win some digi inmages in a challenge I participated in a few weeks ago so decided to use one of them this afternoon after a disasterous vist to the hairdressers. On Thursday I booked myself and my daughter, Kirsty, in for this afternoon. Before out appt we decided to go to a well known phone shop to see about K's phone as its playing up, they couldn't help us so went straigt to the hairdressers across the road, arriving 30mins early. As we walked in the owner looked at us blank so I told him we had an appt for 3.30 with a certain stylist. He looked in the book, no appt and the stylist had left 5mins before. It turns out that when I phoned on Thursday for the appt she had put it in the diary for Thursday instead of Saturday... so not a happy bunny as going out for a meal and hair not done....grrrrr

Anyway, to relieve my frustration and after a visit to Morrisons and Tescos so K could get some books, which she didn't btw, we got home and I made this card. Apart from the image all the products are SU, the image was coloured in with SU chalks brilliant blue, pixie pink and chocolate chip, I the used the card stock to match and WW ribbon. The scolloped edge was made using the SU boarder punch.

I am joining in the following challenges:
