Quick look at the project's that we made at yesterdays crafternoon
Please excuse the poor photo I had to use my phone  but you get the idea of what we made using the Cottage greetings kit and a couple of extra ones.

I love this mint macaron and black with the gold embossing...oh yes we had a little embossing station too which we all had fun at.

Extra products were provided for the ladies to play with. This is the quick and simple design I came up with to use some of the extra bits.

Happy crafting

Good morning
Happy Sunday to you
Yesterday I held a Crafternoon at my house and was joined by 8 lovely ladies and had lots of fun crafting and definitely lots of laughter...so much so that we were supposed to wrap up at 4pm we went a couple of hours over good job no one had any further plans we had a fantastic time!!
We had to work in groups of 4 as only had table big enough for 4 but whilst one lot crafting the others were browsing display tables, chatting and enjoying light refreshments of cuppa and a cake :0)
Here is a brief look at before everyone arrived.
I made the little goody bag filled with all the materials needed to make the projects plus some extra freebie bits to use at home and made the lovely Bermuda bay tags which look fab against the Kraft of the bag.

Not the best picture of my display table I am afraid as not much light in my room as this was set up in the corner but all the lovely swaps from fellow Jems and samples I have made certainly whet the appetite for stampin up goodies!!

It was certainly a busy day so chill out and bit of a craft for me today whilst we wait and see what the weather is up to before deciding on what to do.
Enjoy your day.

Happy 22nd Birthday to my niece for today!
This is the card I made her using Build a Birthday stamp set.
I have seen this 3D effect on pinterest and had to have a go and had to add some bling with dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and Cheslea is a glitter gal just like me...we love the sparkles!!
She had requested vouchers for clothes for her holiday or money for her holiday so made a simple money wallet out of DSPfor her gift of £££
And made a box envelope to hold the card and the wallet all secured with one of my better bows.

Hope she ahs a fantastic day and hopefully we will be joining her for a family meal this evening - all depends on the chicken pox my son has come down with!!
Happy crafting

A lovely sunny day here and hope the weather is kind where you are.
Firstly I wish to apologise for my little absence I have had a sick little boy all week and now we he has Chicken Pox and is covered in spots...not nice for him at all so my crafting and blogging suffered...sorry!
Back on it whilst he is occupied though and today is the birthday card for one of his friend's whose party is today - obviously we are not going now so hope Freddie has a fab time at his birthday celebrations - sorry we can not be there!
Freddie loves lego at the moment so whipped up this lovely bright lego style card. pleased with how it turned out as some of the ideas in my head done actually go according to the plan :0)

Quick card I whipped up for my mum last night in a bit of a rush but very cute all the same using pretty petals papers and the cutest baby bumblebee that has sadly retired I am afraid
Coastal cabana is retired too but I love it so and topped with ribbon and little button too.

 on this close up you can just see the subtle shimmer I added using a wink of stella pen
love the way it shimmers

Morning all
Hope you are having a lovey weekend!
Mine is busy as always and today more gardening but at least it is a little cooler today plus we have a play day with Ben's school friend so  quickie ( although if truth be told I am hoping to get a little rafting in somewhere today too :-) )
Well yesterday was a children's party and I rustled up this card quickly for it.
Bit of fussy cutting around the cars which are slightly raised but pleased as was made in 3 mins flat...I thought I was organised till realised I had forgotten to make a card!!

Happy crafting to all

Lovely sunny day here today so I am taking advantage of the good weather to try and get my gardening done!
No crafting!
I know but my garden is more of a jungle and with a garden party looming next month need to use scissors of a different kind and get gardening!!
Happy Saturday people
Happy 4th July to all my American friends!

Morning all
I have come to the conclusion that my new favourite colour at the minute is mint macaron as just cant seem to stop using it :0D
and so when asked to make a last minute wedding card I immediately thought of mint macaron and this is what I came up with in 5 minutes...
Mint macaron with smoky slate on basic whisper white...clean and simple!
I added some of the new silver metallic thread under the hearts from the Groovy love set and added some little itty bitty flowers to the hearts

Hope the happy couple like it.
