Something Different

After a spell of making card for other people, I have finally had a bit of time to make something for fun. I have been stalking Bev Rochester's gorgeous blog (you can find a link on the side bar, All the Things I love). There is also a stamp draw for a Magnolia stamp, so do visit. I dug out one of my cute stamps and indulged myself. I think the stamp might be a Sarah Kay one but not sure.

The papers are from Papermania and I used another Martha Stewart border punch.
I paper pieced the image and used pencils and sansodor for the little bit of colouring I did.
The Ribbon is from the current SU mini catalogue.
The card is for a Friendship swap over on the Docrafts forum so I hope Debbie likes it.

80th Birthday Card

I have had a very busy week-end, went to see the U2 360 tour at Wembley. The show was fantastic and the boys were in great form. Our first trip to the new Wembley Stadium which is very impressive . I am off work for two whole weeks now, yeah!!. Going to have time to catch up on a bit of housework and take the kids out for some days out and a couple of card making days planned to but I will also have to tidy up the garden (somehow I don't thinks 14 days is going to be long enough!).

Uploaded a few pictures of a commission for an 80th Birthday card and matching candle. I am not very good at colouring so I paper pieced the rose. A beautiful stamp from Elusive Images (graphicus).

I also made a matching box and gift candle.

I embossed everything in gold and it looks lovely against the pink.

Another outing for my Martha Stewart Valentine Lace Edge Punch. I added a little bit of glamour dust and to the rose for a bit of extra sparkle.

I will also be preparing my next Stampin Up class, Summer by the Sea, please email me if you are interested in coming along.

Cupcakes Class

Just time to upload a couple of photo's today. The first set are from my Cupcakes Class, the very cute Crazy for Cupcakes Stamp set from Stampin up. We also used some of the Sweet Always DSP which goes with it beautifully. We made a cute little box and some cards to go in it.

If you would like to come to my next Class, Summer by the Sea, please email me to book your place.

I found a lovely desk box over on Inking Addicts blog, it is sized for US cardstock but I have converted it to fit a standard card here (including the envelopes). I will definitely include this in an upcoming class.

Sorry about the quality of the photo's, had to use an old camera, only 4 mega pixels. shows how things have moved on!
