Today I am sharing with you my latest Christmas Class project. This class is not my own design, it comes as a complete copy of the frame I received as a gift from my lovely upline Jenny at last years Stampin' Up! Convention in London.
Jenny kindly agreed for me to case her idea and use it as my Christmas class for this month as all my ladies loved the original which was done in various shades of green. I wanted to show how different it could look just by changing the colour so I went with various shades of blue for this sample. Every one of my regular class ladies have signed up for this class so if you too would like to join them please get in touch.

Introducing my new craft room assistant...............Sapphire
I set my table up this afternoon to take pictures for my Cottage Garden class notes and once I had done the first lot I moved over to my computer area to upload them and check they were okay. I was busy typing up the notes when I looked back over to the photo set there was Sapphire sat on the white cloth along with the cards and wallet. She had flicked a scrunched up piece of card onto the cloth and was sat there looking at me as though she expected me to take more pictures. Needless to say I couldn't resist as she did look very lovely so here is my little class addition

Today I am sharing with you the card I made for Father's Day for both of the very special men whom Gordon and I are proud to call Dad.
I decided that I wanted to use a nature style images for this year as my Father in Law works hard in his garden and it always looks amazing and my own Mum and Dad are currently having their garden landscaped and I just know their garden will soon mean a lot to them too.
I have always loved the Lovely as a Tree stamp set (in fact it is one of those sets that I bought before I was even a demonstrator) and I tend to use it a lot for male themed cards. I do have to admit that I tended to only use the row of trees image or the Christmas Tree one but this past few months I have begun to use the oak tree and leaves images too. I think I avoided those images in the past because I wasn't confident about my colouring abilities, however once I discovered the blender pen and ink pad technique I realised that even I can create a nice colouring effect with a bit of practice.
Well I hope they both enjoy their cards, I am now off to work on some ideas for my July classes

On Sunday afternoon I attended a wonderful craft event over in Hebden Bridge, thank you Sue for the invite. I met some lovely people so thanks to all of you who stopped by for a chat. (If you are reading this Elaine I will be in touch early next week)
I made this cake to take with me and I have to say that most of the ladies agreed with me that it was the best sort....no calories but still pretty ! My cake may not have the calories but it does have some hidden extras.

This is a gift from me and is in addition to the already generous freebies you can achieve from Stampin' Up!
