Valentines Day card

I'm part of a ladies networking group that meet on a monthly basis and this month it was my turn to promote what I can do. I thought I'd do a Valentines Day card make & take. The colours are Rose Red, Chocolate Chip & Marina Mist. I used the You are Loved stamp set with hearts using the Fashionable Hearts Embosslits.

They loved it and were really pleased with how well their cards turned out.

Boys birthday card

How's the snow been affecting you? It's been quite bad here though the kids only missed Monday at school. It's pretty sunny today & it looks like a lot of it is melting now (I hope!).

I've made a couple of quick cards this morning, my son has 2 birthday parties this weekend and typically I've left it to the last minute to make the cards! I've made them both the same as they don't know each other & one design is enough to think about first thing in the morning.

I do struggle with boys cards not to make them too girly. I don't have any boy stamps but these cards prove you don't always need them. I've used paper from the Festival of Prints paper that is in the Autumn/Winter mini, which will finish 31st Jan.

It's just Island Indigo card stock as the base with a mat of Chocolate Chip with stripes of paper on Whisper White card stock.

The sentiment is a new SAB set called Pretty Petites with a co-ordinating punch which is also a SAB freebie. Just order £45 & one of these can be yours. I'm a sucker for a punch!

Have a good weekend

January class

I hope everyone had a good Christmas & New Year, we had a fab time and no illness! Which was a shocker as everyone around us was falling ill.

We had the first class of the year on Saturday and made these cards & concertina card box. We used the beautiful Natural Composition papers which are my favourite. They're more like card stock. I cased the cards from some I'd seen on Julie Kettlewell's blog.

We all had a fab time and ladies at the class were really pleased with their projects.
