Weekend fun

Hi there

I had fun this weekend creating these little card wallets. I saw them over on Jenny's Blog and was blown away by her example. Mine are not nearly as beautiful as Jenny's but I certainly had fun making them both. I decided to make my wallets as little gifts so will be including 4 cards and envelopes in each one.

The Unfrogettable wallet is the same size as Jenny's but the Heartfelt one is slightly bigger as I wanted it to hold standard C6 cards and envelopes (these were just a touch too big for the original sized wallet)

I loved the look of the fastener on Jenny's wallet but don't have any of those so I used ribbon instead. I just cut a slit in the two sides of my wallet, attached the ribbon inside and threaded it throughto tie at the front.

I don't usually do "Cute"

I do not usually do "cute" cards but thought I would share these three with you.

The first two are using Magnolia and Sugar Nellie stamps. I decided that I really needed something in my stamp collection that is perfect for really cute little girls cards and I think they will be perfect.

The third card is using a "Fluffles" Stampendous stamp. Janette is solely to blame for this purchase :-) She made me a gorgeous little Get Well card using this stamp, after my recent surgery and it cheered me up no end...... It was just one of those "must have" images

I need a lot more practice with watercolouring (not at all confident as yet) but I am sure I can learn if I practise enough.

Not just a card

Hi there

I have been having a play around with an assortment of 3 D items this week. I found all of the ideas over on Splitcoast Stampers and have had real fun giving them a go.

I have been having problems with my camera download program on my computer all week but my extremely obliging nephew has sorted it all out for me tonight .....thankyou so much Matt.

I can therefore upload a few pictures of my little projects. Hope you like them.

Guess who had their Stamping Up order today


I had my amazing box of Goodies from Stamping Up today. Ooooh I cannot go into too much detail ( who knows who could see this post lol) just suffice to say it was a rather large order

:-) and I am thrilled to bits.

There is a story behind this order.......

6 weeks ago just before my surgery I actually decided to try and give up smoking and I am delighted to say that I have still not had a single cigarette in all that time.

So this mega parcel I had today is my present to myself for not giving in and not going back to the cigarettes. How wonderful that all of the money I would have spent in the past 6 weeks has now bought me stamps, inks, cardstock etc etc instead of just going up in a puff of smoke.

So here is my first card made with some of the things I had in my box which arrived about 3 hours ago ( after I mounted all my new stamps)

Nestability Dies

Well I finally gave in and have bought my first Nestability dies. I bought the Classic scallop squares and circles and couldn't resist trying just one out this morning. I am soooooo going to love these little dies (when I am back to full health and am able to put them through my Wizard without hurting myself lol)

This little House Mouse card is only the simplest of quick cards but it has given me an idea of the Nestabilities effect.

Back at last

Well firstly I must apologise for being away somewhat longer than the 2 weeks I had expected following my surgery. I am now back and on the way to recovery.

I have also had my In Laws staying with us for 10 days so have been rather occupied with that.

I haven't been up to crafting for what feels like forever but yesterday I made a start and here are three cards I managed to create using the Stamping Up "In the Spotlight" and "Simply Said" stamp sets.

I love these two stamp sets and will have a more in depth play with them once my stamp-a-ma-jig arrives.
