Sunflowers Z Fold Card

Good morning,
Hoping my post finds you all well, warm and bug free! I have the start of the sniffles and am hoping it will go away asap.  My poor Georgia and Jess are both feeling poorly, so am sure I will be joining them too.

 Here is my Monday project for Little Claire.  I have used the gorgeous 'Sunflower' stamp set, which is my fav of all of the vast sets that they sell.

 Here is my 'Z' fold card (above and below) using the set, I so loved colouring it in!
 I have stamped up all of the images in the set and have coloured them in using Promarker's.  For the full instructions on how it was made, pop on over HERE to the main blog.
This lovely stamp set is on offer until Thursday, at only £6.50 instead of £8.99 on the website.
I had a great time demoing at The Craft Barn mini-fest yesterday.  A huge thanks to all of the wonderful ladies that came and sat and watched my demos of Christmas, Babies and bird cards. So great to see familiar faces and new ones too!  I will share some photos of the cards in another post.
I am so pleased to announce that I have some more class dates to share at The Craft Barn, firstly :

Butterfly Flourish Card

Good afternoon, just sharing a little card that I have made for the 'Little Claire Likes' project today, over on the blog HERE.
I have used the gorgeous set 'Butterfly Flourish' which comes with some lovely flourish stamps and a great sentiment.  You can get this lovely set at the reduced price of £6.50 (normally £8.50) until Thursday this week, over on the Little Claire website HERE.
My girls had a teacher training day today, so we went shopping for family Christmas gifts and then brought ourselves a little real tree. We normally have a six foot imitation tree but decided this year, we are going small.  We have a lovely bay window in our lounge, so we have got a lovely little tree to fit on it.  Georgia has given her the name of Mabel and we plan to plant her in the garden after Christmas.  I will share a photo, once she has been decorated.
Have a lovely evening, thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Hobby Art 'Mae' Christmas Wreath

Ooo am slightly late in posting this, apologies one and all!
Have been very busy this week with Hobby Art Workshop makes and my classes over at The Craft Barn.
Here is my Hobby Art blog project using the gorgeous little fairy 'Mae'.  I have given her a Christmas feel by making her my central image for my little wreath. I have coloured her in using Promarker's and the flowers are made from some lovely cream pearl envelopes that I have just lying around.
Off to grab a large coffee and then back to the craft room.  Am starting my Christmas cards today, so hopefully I will be organised in time, fingers crossed X
Have a great weekend!

What If I Fall? Competition

Hi, am sharing a couple of my recent cards using the beautiful new stamp set - 'What if I fall?'
This little set is a new one from 'Little Claire'.  The DT have made some gorgeous cards, which you can go visit HERE.
My first card is in blue and pink tones and have gone mono using cream and black on my second.

'Little Claire' are running a competition where you could win this lovely little set, you just need to pop over to the blog and tell Gill and Steve what you are frightened of.
I am really scared of large brown spiders, deep water, heights and metal coat-hangers.  Yes, its a strange one, but I really don't like to touch them at all! I think I have this in common with the famous American actress Joan Crawford lol :)
Anyway, you have until Thursday, 27th November 2014 to enter, so good luck!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Am busy prepping for my classes at The Craft Barn tomorrow.  We will be making cards using acetate and gilding flakes.
Take care,
