Lovely as a tree class

Hello everyone,

My what a hectic weeks its been.  Not only have we been baby sitting our gorgeous grandson but have been running his mummy everywhere to find a new car.  She has finally got one so is mobile again.  We also did a major clean on the house, I ran my class yesterday and then organised a BBQ to celebrate our anniversary.  It was a great turnout and, for the first time in years, all of hubbys family were together in one place.  Over the next few weeks I have to make 30ish swaps for training thats next Saturday, a wedding card, design my scrapbook class and other bits and bobs so quite a busy time ahead.  Oh and did I mention I have to work full time as

At my class yesterday I used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree.  We made a box that holds 4 tea tree lights and 6 cards.  The measurements for the box were kindly given to me by Victoria, thank you.   This is what we made:

The image on the cherry cobbler scallop card doesn't show up too well but it was the largest image in the set stamped in Night of Navy.   The colour scheme was cherry cobbler, night of navy, river rock and whisper white.  All the ladies loved the class and we had a blast as usual.  One of my ladies even brought home made cakes for us all and has specially baked extra for my BBQ... how sweet (excuse the pun) was that!

If you would like to order anything or book in for a class please visit the pages at the top of my blog for details of how to contact me.

Thank you for stopping by

Owl punch art

Hello everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around for a while but have had a few things to do that have taken up rather a lot of my time.  Anyway, I am off work this week and so far have just managed to finish off designing my class for Saturday.   I'm basing it on the Lovely as a Tree set and will post piccies after Saturday.

Yesterday was my wedding annniversary and, believe it or not, it was my neighbours as well.   We moved here 10 years ago to discover that they got married on the same day and year as us.  How weird is that!!!  Well to celebrate their anniversary I made them this card.....

As you can see I have used the owl punch to make a bride and groom and papers from the Lap of Luxuary set ensuring I got the word Love on the card.   I haven't seen them since I posted the card so I hope they liked it.

Hubby is meant to be taking me shopping this week to treat me so I'm hoping to get really spoilt.  We are having a BBQ on Saturday to celebrate our anniversary so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that  the weather is kind to us.

I won't leave it so long next time to post I promise.  Til them, ttfn
