Bit of a catch up

The first two photos are the cards we will be making on Tuesday 15th March.

These next two cards are from last weeks Stamp a Stack. Thanks to everyone who attended.

Here is a Tunnel card we made last year.

If anyone has come back for a look, thank you! I know it has been a long time. : )

Jet Lagged!!

Hi  Just back from the UK, and am still having trouble sleeping at the right time.  We had a great trip, lots of family, our eldest daughter got married and then we went on a  Mediterranean cruise. Lots to fit in to three weeks. Since arriving back into WA I just can't get back into a proper sleep pattern.  I keep waking in the middle of the night for several hours and then sleep in until late.

Hopefully in the next few days I will get back into some card making and get organised for some classes.  X

Sorry ! It's been a while

Well it's been a while!!  My husband started a blog for a service club he's involved with and because it was connected to our internet that cancelled out my codes, passwords etc.  So everytime I thought I would update the blog I couldn't get in.  Then I would forget about it and whenever I needed the code he wasn't here.  Anyway here I am.  Can't promise how regular the updates will be but this is a start.

Thought I might just start off with lots of photos of cards that I have been making:

Hope you like these cards.  Hopefully I will be back soon with more photos.  I just got my sneak peak products from the new 2015 - 2016 Stampin' Up! catalogue so I'm hoping to have a play in the next few days and then I'll share with you.

Holiday Home Plus more

Thank you so much to Jo for letting me use her brand new stamp set Holiday Home.  I was a little nervous at first, worried that I would stain this lovely unmarked set.  So far so good I have been very careful and below is what I have made today.  Nothing brilliant, but fun. Hopefully I will have time to try out a few more before I have to hand it back.

These next two cards are the next Technique Class "Origami Christmas Trees". The next ones were from the last Technique Class.

I have had a stamp a stack too but don't seem to have a photo of those cards, I'll have to add that next time I'm on here.

The final photo is four generations of females in my family. My mum, my daughter and my grand daughter and me.  This was the first time we had all been together.

Thank You for looking. I hope you liked what you saw.

Second set of cards

Here are the second five cards for October's Stamp a Stack. I've gone with a black and white theme this month.  Hope you like them.

I've used various Stampin' Up! stamps Whisper White and Basic Black cardstock and the new DSP Back to Black.



October Stamp a Stack

Here are the first five of the ten stamp a stack cards that we will be making on 7th October.  Still working on the next five. They will be assorted cards (not Christmas cards).  I will post a photo of the other cards after they are made.

Have a great day.

Screen Cards

At this month's Technique Class we are making screen cards.  The two cards above use the new stamp set Flower Patch from Stampin' Up!  I love this set there are so many different ways to use it and it also has a matching set of Framelits.  A tip for using the framelits is to match up the framelit and the stamp and mark them so it is easy to place the framelit in the right spot when you go to cut out. At the class on Tuesday night we will do one of the above and a Christmas style card too (if people want to).

I have made a card with four panels and one with three.  I think I like the four panelled one best, it's more dainty looking.  However it will also require a specially made envelope because of it's size.  Luckily I have the SU Envelope punch board and that wont be a problem. I got a bit carried away with the stamping on the top card and there isn't much space to write on so I put a panel on the back of the card for that.

We have two very special visitors at the moment, our daughter and her daughter.  It's so lovely to spend time with the two of them.   We don't get to see them often enough and we're certainly catching up on lots of hugs and kisses for Grandma and Grandad.                             



Ash has been doing a bit of card making too.  She is very much into Clean and Simple cards.  Here are a few she made.

I might have to CASE the little boat card it is soooo nice.  Simple and classy. Well I think so!!

Just thought I would end with another couple of shots of Elsie, she is just so gorgeous.

Thanks for looking. X
