Tessa's Birthday Card

Cards can be hard to make for teenagers but Tessa loves sewing so this stamp set and paper was just perfect for her. Tessa and I have had some lovely sewing days, she is very clever. I hope you had a lovely Birthday Tessa.

I have been struggling with my photos lately but they are about to improve ! I am having a lesson this week, yeah ! No more boring blurry photos on the balcony.

Hope you can come back and visit soon.

Happy Birthday Felicity !

This was a card I made for my very special friend Felicity in July. She loves sewing and makes some amazing things. So this paper was just perfect for making a card for her. Unfortunately this paper has been retired but if you have some lying around this might give you some inspiration. These buttons are great for both sewing and card making.
Hope you are feeling better soon Felicity !

Happy Birthday Rebecca and Niki !!

Sorry girls this is a bit late ! A couple of weeks ago we had a birthday celebration day for two of my lovely friends Rebecca and Niki. It started with a game of golf in the rain !! These cards look much too sunny they should have had lots of mud on them ! In the evening we went to see the new movie Jane Eyre , thoroughly recommend it, finishing with dinner.
I have used the new Pennant punch to make the flag and trees. I was inspired by a card made by the very clever Cindy.
Thanks for visiting.

Inklings Weekend Away !

Yeah......... a  weekend of stamping, fun and laughter !!
 Once a year my team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators go away together and stamp until we drop.
We take cards to swap with each other so come home with lots of different ideas.
This is a picture of my swap card. I decided to go with a simple Christmas design. This stamp is available in the new 2011-2012 Ideas Book and Catalogue and is called Something for Christmas $19.95.
On sale 1st September 2011.
More pictures to come...

We were continuing with Christmas Cards and made a card with a 3d christmas decoration like this .

Happy Birthday Sue !!

It was my very enthusiastic team member's birthday on Thursday and this was her card.
Happy Birthday Sue hope you had a lovely day.

This card was made with papers and a fantastic new punch from the upcoming Ideas Book and Catalogue. The layout was based on Galy's get well card , see previous post, and is proving very versatile !

It has been a very busy month so far with lots of friends birthdays so stay tuned for some more cards !

I made this card for our lovely gym instructor Galy who is in hospital at the moment. Hope you are feeling better soon Galy !  Galy has a great website with lots of healthy ideas.

 I found these owls on Kerry's blog and just had to have a go at making them, so cute !
