It is my origainal Ladies Craft Morning today. We have been running for about 4/5 years now and I told them that they are moving up to the Intermediate class - they weren't impressed! (they mainly come for the company and a cuppa!) Anyway I have got them on to using the Stamp-a-ma-jig from Stampin up and they were quite impressed. They made the beer mug card (below) and also made a start on the Vintage Vogue/Bird on a branch puch card. I made this to show one of the ladies that you can make leaves from the wing punch aswell as the smaller leaves.

Recently I took some card samples in to the gym where I go to show the ladies (and try to drum up some business). Yesterday I was asked to do an anniversary card to include a picture so here is the card I produced - hope you like it.

It is my son Richard's birthday tomorrow so I made him a card with a theme which is very close to his heart - alcohol! (he will be 33 though, and I do like to think that he drinks responsibly - well I can THINK that he does!) His card is on my sister-in -law's blog but here is another version which I have made for my class of ladies to make on Monday. Original version cased from Julie's blog.

After making the owl card with the design paper from the brights pack (which I got with my starter set on signing up to Stampin Up) I decided to make one which was definately more for a man. I used papers from the Sweet Pea paper stack which sadly is no longer available. Hope you like it.

I'm Back!

Hello everyone. Well it has taken some time but here I am again.
I have renewed my enthusiasm for crafting by joining 'STAMPIN UP'. It is a fantastic company which sell a great range of crafting products for beginners and the experienced crafter alike. I love working with everything in their catalogue. It is all brilliant quality, where the colours co-ordinate and mix and match together. If you are interested in finding out more about why I love Stampin Up so much leave a comment on my blog.

To give me a head start I visited Jo Dumbelton's blog where I found inspiration for the cards below. I love the colours. They are so vibrant. Thanks Jo.
