This week the Monday morning ladies wanted to do the music card that I made for my Brother's birthday (already posted - see below) and while we were busy punching the shaps from the word window punch (Stampin UP)  I thought it would be nice for them to make anoyher card to go with it.  They were delighted with both cards.

On Sunday it was my brother's birthday and as he is very much into music I thought it maight be good to use that theme for a card.  This is a case from another card I saw online  but unfortunately I have forgotten who it was.  I have altered it slightly to make it my own , but if it is you then email me and I will credit you.
It uses the top note die and word window punch for the main piano, the music roller and the scallop oval and plain oval punches, all from Stampin Up.

Paisley Petals

The monday morning ladies don't like to have too much of a challenge so I thought the top card would be ok for them, although we did have a few laughs along the way as they were gluing the wrong pieces together!  While they were busy doing their thing I thought I would do just a monchrome version as I had already done the sample.  I think it turned out ok - very clean looking

This is the last card the ladies made on Monday night. 
We used the Bordering on Romance stamp set to make the zig zag card. 
The ladies enjoyed colouring in the flowers which were stamped alternately on the front, then on the back of the card so that when it is folded you see all the stamped images. 
We cut around the top of the design, again turning it from back to front as you reach the fold so that you can see where to cut.
This is a case from my sister-in-laws blog at, which I think in turn was a case from

Mixed Blossoms

Here is another card the ladies made on Monday night   We used the Mixed Blossoms punch and stamp set from Stampin Up.  (unfortunately the greeting got bent during the evening but I think you get the idea.)

This is one of the card the ladies made on Monday night.  Last week and the week before we made cards using the same stamp set from Stampin Up called 'French Foliage'.  I think it is quite a versatile stamp set, epecially useful for the Mens cards which we always seem to struggle over.  I did spritz it withn shimmer to demonstrate how to use the shimmer effect, but personally I prefer it without.

Yesterday it was my Nephew's Son's (does that make sense?!) birthday - here is the card I made for him.  (Not saying he is a little monkey really!)
