why is it always harder for me to make a card for someone to give to someone else to order rather than just make a card because?? Yet for others people it's the opposite they find it hard to just make a card!!!!!
Any way here's a card I was commissioned to create for a friend to give to her parents to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary

 What do you think?

Well as a card maker this has to be the best reason to get my toys out and play!!! 
With Christmas just around the block I thought I'd share a card that is part of an up coming class we're running soon, date to be confirmed! The class is based around a single stamp that will be included in the price as well as all the materials to make 4 cards including envelopes!!! ( sorry about the poor piccie, I'm not a great photographer!!!!) Oh by the way the sparkle is far blingier, not sure if that's a real word but it means what it says, in real life!!!!! lol
Have a great day and hope you all get to play along too xxx

Hi Here are a couple of projects using products from the latest Stampin up Summer Mini.

 The first project is a wreath  made from simple paper hearts and a rosette made using the wonderful Simply Scored from Stampin' Up. It also uses the pretty pleated satin ribbon in Blushing Bride.

The second project uses an empty DVD case as a neat way to keep your wishes neat and tidy, and always ready to use with it's matching pen!

Hope your having a great bank holiday

Have fun xx

Well another week done which means........It's the weekend!!!

Where is this year going? Already it's the second week of March which means that spring is officially on the way ...( must make sure that mother nature gets that message LOL)

It also means that Stampin' Up!'s Sale-a-bration is drawing to a close for another year. The Promotion offers exclusive free product for every £45 you spend on goodies from the Stampin' Up! range.

I've used the gorgeous designer series papers called Everyday Enchantment and a stamp set called Fresh Vintage that are only available during Sale-a-bration to make these cards.

Have a good weekend

Well it's such a dull and dismal day here in Crawley that I thought I'd quickly pop a photo, (rather badly taken sadly!! LOl) of a little project I did recently for the Stampin' Up! stand at the Make It show in Farnborough for Natalie O'Shea our lovely up-line.

The flowers are all created using the build a blossom punch and shows how beautiful the Stampin' Up! colours are. Each flower has a coordinating button or brad in the middle.
Some will say I'm crackers for using the punch as each petal is individually punched out and shaped and layered but I had a wail of a time making it and I think it is really pretty and on such a dull and dismal day makes me smile and believe that summer will get here... eventually!!!

Any way of to do some project management training now so have fun

Well you sure can't say that I'm a regular blogger can you?????

Any way here's a photo of a little 6" wreath I made using the wonderful stripped grosgrain ribbon and the beautiful Spice Cake papers and the oh so useful beautiful wings embosslet.

In the other photo you can see I have also been playing with some mdf hearts that I picked up at Make It show in Farnborough and scraps of newsprint paper and got very messy with inks!! Nothing new there then if you know me LOL These little beauties are all made with the scraps from my work table...don't you just love it when you find a use for some of those scraps that you just "can't bear" to throw away :)

Any way I'm away to my bed know but I'll have some sneak peeks of the cards I've made for the up coming men's class to post tomorrow ......fingers crossed!!! LOL

Have fun
