Birthday Rose is a Rose

Hi there

Just thought I would share another Rose is a Rose card with you.

I was asked yesterday to make this for my Mum for her best friend whose birthday it is today...... Happy Birthday Belle

I didn't go to bed until the early hours this morning so it's a miracle that I have managed to get up this morning and make it for her in time for collection within the next half an hour.

I think my Mum will like it and hope you all do too

Forest Friends

Firstly I need to give an apology to my loyal ladies who check out my blog regularly. I have been rushed off my feet in the past week and not been able to craft.

This morning however, for the first time in a week I have managed to create a card. This was for a card ordered by a friend for a 1st Birthday card for her little niece. I am sure she will love the Forest Friend images I have used....who can fail to love them ? they are so cute !

I am making a heap of Baby themed cards this week with crafting partner Vikki so will post pictures as we get them finished.

More Rose is a Rose

Wow, wow, wow .............I am totally loving my new A Rose is a Rose stamp set, what was I thinking of when I delayed buying it until now ???????????????? What a waste of 8 months since it's release in our catalogue which came out last September.

I truly cannot believe how stunning the roses look within seconds of adding the 2nd stamped image. I must also add that the Stamp-a-ma-jig positioning tool gives perfect results every single time and I wouldn't be without mine for the world.
I had planned on starting a new more organised regime for my blog of making sure I add one new photo every day...... that idea has now gone out of the window as I have 3 cards I want to share with you today. I hope you enjoy them.

A Rose is a Rose

I have wanted this stamp set ever since our new Stampin'Up! catalogue came out in September. I knew I would simply HAVE to have it but it has taken until now for me to give in and get it for myself.

I am blown away by how easy this set is to use and after playing around with it for just one day I already "know" it will be one of the sets I keep forever, regardless of if it ever gets retired by Stampin'Up! This card is just the very first card I have made so be prepared to see many more in time.

I just thought I would add that the watermark you can see on my photo is new to me. I followed a link to this lady's blog and purchased some different ones from her. (Karen is very helpful especially to those of us who are somewhat technically challenged)
So if you need a watermark for you website or blog bob on over and take a look HERE

Easter Gifts

Hi all
I am away in Wales for a short Easter break with some of my family. My nephew Matthew is also joining us tomorrow so I have made little Easter gifts for everyone for Sunday morning.

I thought I would share pictures of the gifts I have made for everyone.

Easter Baskets

I saw these adorable little baskets over on Monica's blog and have made lots of them for Easter gifts. These two are for my friends Vikki and Jenny and I made cards to match. I have given them out today and both ladies liked them ( bet they will like the eggs even more lol)

They are so simple to make, in fact one of the easiest 3-D items I have ever made, but I think they look lovely.

Launch party success

Hi there
First and foremost a big thank you to all of you ladies who attended my Mini catalogue launch party and made it a huge success. Thank you also for your valued orders which I hope to be delivering very shortly along with your individual raffle prizes. It was a wonderful day and it was lovely to meet some of you for the first time.

I was so pleased to have heard back from you all that you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to seeing some of you again at my Photo wallet class later this month.

If you want to attend this class on Thursday 23rd April 10 am - 1 pm please let me know as soon as possible as places are limited. In addition I do have a couple of spaces left for the Thursday 23rd April evening class 6.30pm - 9pm.

Unfortunately the Friday class 10 am- 1pm is now full .

Here are a few more pictures showing my launch party samples. The little Ferrero Rocher chocolate handbags were the thank you token gifts I made for every guest, just to say thanks for coming.
