And now for something a little more 'grown up'

Here's a card I made for a workshop at the hostess' request to use A Rose Is A Rose stamp set. A bit more complicated than I would usually do at a workshop but one of my favourite sets so I didn't really mind.

The card colours are: rose red, pretty in pink and whisper white with paper from the Love Stories Scrappin kit.
Inks are rose red, pretty in pink, mellow moss and certainly celery and the ribbon is always artichoke. The border is punched with the pretty eyelet border punch and the sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration Whimsical Words set

Something simple

Seems ages since I blogged, probably because it is! Obviously we are back from sunny Tunisia after a 4 hour delayed return flight. Still, at least we had relaxing break.
Today I have a couple of cards which I intend to make with the children at school. I'm not going to list the products as they're not all SU, but I think you c an easily see how they are made.

So here's the first one.

And the second one is a little more interesting and definitely cute. :)

Where does the time go...?

I can't believe how long it is since I last blogged! Life is so hectic and busy busy busy at work. What have I done since then? Let me see.... I've posted 200 leaflets through people's doors (in the snow) and had only one reply from  them but it was from a lovely lady who came to my class on Saturday and really enjoyed herself. I had a fantastic workshop hosted by one of my crafting friends and we've booked a holiday for half term. Yippee!!!!!. We're off to sunny Tunisia as always, to our favourite 'no kids allowed' hotel. Can't wait to see a bit of glorious sunshine yellow.

Here's a couple of cards for you. The first one was cased. It was a mixture of Carol's colour scheme and Louise's design. 

The colours are basic black and real red using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set - Good Neighbours.

This one is using the Bloomin Beautiful stamp set and the Sale-A-Bration stamp set, Whimsical Words. The colours are one of my favourite combinations - perfect plum and pale plum with pretty in pink and pixie pink flowers. The ribbon is 5/8" white satin and the pretty edge was made using the eyelet border punch.

Just a reminder that Sale-A-Bration finishes on 28th February, so not long to go now. Don't miss out on qualifying for one of these beautiful free sets. I'll certainly be sorry to see them go as I've had a lot of fun with them.

And finally. Here's one I'm really proud of. It's my take on one of Michelle Zindorf's tutorials. She's amazing. Go and have a look!

I couldn't begin to tell you how to do this one, so best to check it out on Michelle's tutorial. The stamp set is , of course, Good Neighbours.
