Happy Wanderer

Well tomorrow I have promised I will get the caravan out for her first outing... If I don't bite the bullet I'll just keep procrastinating. So I've loaded her up and am heading off after lunch.

I'm not going far and leaving hubby home to look after the cats... I'm going to do some walks on The Ridgeway... more Project Life!

I thought I should post though so you don't miss me too much...

It's just a little card I made with the Lotus Blossom set, Free during Saleabration... you only have until next Tuesday to take advantage of the great offers so don't miss out!

Gorgeous isn't it?

I think it was probably the fastest one off the shelf this year during Saleabration.

These diddy little flowers are so sweet!

I'm off to bed now - so see you again soon and have a fabulous weekend, you can still shop whilst I'm away - just use the Shop Now button at the top right of the page. xxx

Are we nearly there yet?

Oh yes we are! I am so excited that the days are getting longer and it will be light in the evenings again!

Please excuse me if I ramble on a bit but I made a spaghetti bolognese this evening and there was a bottle of red wine in the cupboard... and, well, it would have been rude not to!

I wanted to share the cards we made in our March classes. The last class of the month is tomorrow. But I do have spaces available in April and have four spaces available for the class in The Swan Hotel, Thame on the 13th of April at 7pm... so book now to save your space!

These were the cards we made this month...

This one used Gorgeous Grunge and Flower Shop with the Pansy Punch

In addition we used Petite Petals with the co-ordinating punch on this one.

The background on this one is Something Lacy and the sentiment from Petite Pairs

The sponging on these flowers is so effective! And the leaves were made using the Bird Builder punch

I'm off to make some thank you cards now for this months orders... Have a great week!

Out of Office...

Yup - I'm having a couple of days away so thought I would pop up a quick post to let you know and share something GORGEOUS.

I'm sure the animals will be pleased I'm gone - and hubby won't miss the nagging... MUCH!

I was asked to make a birthday card for someone special. So I came up with this...

I don't often use DSP but I loved this free with a £45 order during Saleabration.... lots of layers and lots of sponging.

The embossing on the Vellum is adorable and wouldn't be complete without a couple of pearls... and a butterfly!

This is one of those cards where I emptied half the drawers and cupboards in the craft room... So way too many products to mention. But you can always send me a message if you would like to know what products I used.

Back with something else on Thursday!

Sheltering Tree

Sorry the post is a bit late... I have been making bunting for my caravan!

One of my fellow Pinkies did a video for us using the brayer technique... the lovely Lilian 

I decided to use the technique and CASE her design and make all four seasons... I LOVE Sheltering Tree and those Candy Dots really finish them off!

If you want to come to any of my classes in April - You had better book as I'm running out of space. I can't believe that I am having to run 2 classes a week - But I really enjoy your company... so please keep coming and crafting.

I hope you like them! I promised you some beauties! 

Back soon! xxxx

Great fun had by all!

Yesterday was my free introductory session for my classes at The Swan Hotel, Thame.

A lovely group of ladies came along and I think they all enjoyed it as they have all booked for next months class!

If you think you might like to come along and give it a try the next date is the 13th of April just £10.95 and booking essential. If you would like to know about forthcoming events and classes, special offers and discounts, just e-mail me and ask to be added to my mailing list. I only send about one email a month so you won't be inundated with junk I promise!

Stampin' Up! are extremely proud of the quality of their products and have taken the difficult decision to withdraw the Blendabilities from sale as the manufacturers are unable to guarantee the quality of products that Stampin' Up! insist upon, it is as a result of one of the manufacturing techniques so they will be researching and developing a replacement at some point in the future.

One of my work colleagues celebrated a big birthday this week - so I made her a card.

A pretty card for a lovely lady... I love the butterflies from the Papillon Potpourri set

We also used the butterflies last night for the make and take.

Here are some of the ladies crafting away - excuse the photo it's not one of my best and is a little dark for some reason!

I would love you to come along to a class, or you can book me for a party in your home... please do get in touch!

I have another class tomorrow but will be posting some beautiful creations Thursday!

Don't forget you can shop securely on-line using the link at the top right of this page.

Have a fab evening!
