Morning all

WOW July already!!

Welcome to another Jems blog hop and this month our theme is 'You are my sunshine'.

At the recent all day training Julie held she gave us a challenge - a pack of card, papers and some accessories and asked us to make some projects...harder than you think believe me.

I came up with this card using the whole lot of lovely designer papers, some pear pizzazz ribbon and card and the perfect sentiment to send to my Mum - who is my sunshine!!

She has seen me through thick and thin and I appreciate her every day so to make her day a little extra special I sent her this with some of her favourite chocolates.

Happy Monday crafters

To brighten the day and start to the week I am sharing a lovely bright birthday card today

Simple colour combo of pear pizzazz, daffodil delight, crumb cake, very vanilla and basic black. I used the wood crate die and cut in half along with tranquil tulips and wood words stamp sets

The sentiment is from happy home and perfect fit on the crate.

Happy crafting

Sharing the love today with my cards sent to the emergency services involved in the recent tragic events in London, I really appreciate what they do each and every day!!

Simple and to the point I think, hope they were well received.

I am hoping to get organised today and have some crafty playtime...fingers crossed.

Good morning
Such a glorious Sunday here hope the weather is being kind wherever you are too!

Yesterday I spent a lovely day with some of the Jems team and my fantastic upline crafting all day, lots of fun, laughter and chatter as well as CRAFTING...perfect day.

My swaps were made with the windowbox thinlet and loved the way they turned out.

Made in calypso coral, so saffron and wisteria wonder with a dazzling diamonds glimmer paper butterfly.

The sentiment I added from the wood words stamp set and added tiny flowers and gems.

Here they are in all three colourways lit up...gorgeous!

It's Friday!! and that means all day crafty training tomorrow...excited!! I t has been a while since I attended one of these fab days...pop back next week to see the swaps I made for this event.

On to todays offering and again with tranquil tulips - I love it am going to have a play and see what other things I can make out of them! Feel free to play along too.

So I made this gorgeous anniversary card which is to go to friends in Holland - it had to be tulips :0)

Its lovely and hope it will be well received.

The sentiment is from number of years and stamped on to a stitched frame, would of loved to add some dimension but flat is best when sending in the post.

Happy crafting and happy Friday

Good morning

Never mind...I will craft instead :0)

So I have been bit absent this week, just so busy have not had time to blog but I did hold an new catalogue launch last weekend and wanted to show you the makes we made.

We used the gorgeous new tranquil tulips hostess stamp set for these cute little 3x3 inch cards with various sentiments in yummy colour combo of so saffron, blushing bride, powder pink, pear pizzazz, perfect plum, sahara sand and black.

Just lovely and all my crafters agreed and adapted the sentiments to occasions they had coming up.

Then to top it off we made the cutest little crate for them to go in...I LOVE this die already!!

How gorgeous!!

Off to do a quick clean of the house and then a crafty day for me

Enjoy your Saturday

Hello and happy Monday

I am a little late on to the band wagon when it comes to this set, I fell in love with it and HAD to have it to then it sit awaiting playtime and only just gotten round to it.
I must say though its a fab set all round for many projects and is even cheaper at the minute as sadly it is retiring at the end of this month so grab it whilst you can.

How cute!

I can see myself making lots of these in various colours for all over the house...I do not have to water them :0)  I always forget.

The stamps and dies for this set are on the retirement list with a discount message me to order alternatively I can cut a kit for you to assemble message me for details
