As promised - here are the two cards that the new class made last Monday.  The first one was a bit challenging as I showed them how to do the spiral roses.  I have been doing these for years as I used to do quilling and made them to put on my cards then.  It is nice to see that they are back in vogue again.

Last week I started a new Monday evening class.  One of the ladies is a complete beginner and one is quite accomplished so it was a problem to try to suit these two.  Another lady joined this week who is inbetween the original two so we have a wide variety of skills.  (I do have space for one more person if anyone lives near Dinnington, Sheffield and would like to join us I would love to hear from you.)

Anyway, to start the first class I thought I would use the new Mixed Bunch set from Stampin Up and use mostlt the In Colour palette.  As you can see the first card is quite vibrant and the second is more subtle.  The ladies liked them  I hope you do too.  Please pop back tomorrow when I will post this weeks cards.  Thanks for looking.

It is my sister Janice's birthday on Sunday and I have made this card especially for her as she loves red.  My husband, sister in law and me are taking her out to Derbyshire for a special lunch on Friday (I hope it doesn't rain!)  I have also bought her a red purse and will put some money in it so that she can buy what she wants.

I saw this card as a bit of a challenge as my sister in law posted her card she made for Janice yesterday.  Check out hers at

Wedding Anniversary

A friend asked me if I would do a Wedding Anniversary card for her son and his wife but she wanted a photograph on the front of it.  I came up with this and she was absolutely delighted.  When she gave it to her son and his wife they were so pleased that they are going to have it framed!!??

Hi everyone - sorry I have not blogged for a while but just seem to be so busy! 
Here are a selection of cards I made last week and intended to blog, so better late than never! 
I just love the colour combo and tried to make each one just a little different. 
Although these are quite simple I thoroughly enjoyed making them.
