Cold Crisp Kisses!!

Good afternoon, hope you are enjoying the summer holidays, we sure are! We have had another busy day visiting with friends, cannot believe that a week has gone by already since school broke up.

Anyway, I wanted to share a quick couple of cards I made using the brand new yummy stamp 'Cold Crisp Kisses' from Red Gingham which you can purchase via the Little Claire's website for just £5.50.

Please excuse the photos, I do hope you can see all of my lovely cosmic shimmer that I have added onto the trees, Georgia has been playing with the zoom on my camera.

Bad, bad blogger lol!

Good evening, been a really bad blogger again, my time flies! Nearly two weeks since I last posted, where do the hours go in a day? Mine just seem to whizz, especially now that the girls are home. Georgia is bored already and needs constant food, so my cupboards are bare again!

Anyway, thought I would share some recent cards we made at my class last month. Have a few pictures for you.My ladies wanted 'Vintage' and these below are what they made. Ooo it was so much fun getting so messy with Tim Holtz lol! I have used two Little Claire and two LOTV, lots of lovely My Mind's Eye papers, SU cardstock and wonderful Aquamarkers, which I cant stop playing with lol!

Little Claire Monthly Challenge # 11 - 'Things With Wings

Good afternoon, OMG it has been two weeks since my last post, sorry but I have been such a busy bee, not a lot of time to craft. I have been busy with home things and catching up with old friends. Georgia has had her Year 6 Leavers play, 'The Lion King' which the cast performed so wonderfully, it was a very emotional evening, not a dry eye in the school hall. Georgia played Scar and was fantastic, yep I know, I am biased lol! The scenery, music and singing was wonderful, such a professional production - well done Mr Ryan & Miss Dale! Anyway, here is a photo of her all done up Lion style! Wednesday is going to be a very hard day for me and the mums of the Year 6, it will be the last time that I ever go to the school, I have been doing the school run for 15 years, so its all change.

Ok, now to the new challenge over at Little Claire's . They are running monthly from today and the DT have come up with some gorgeous creations. Below is the prize, including a brand new stamp set, papers, brads and dt idea sheets.

I have used three lots of Little Claire stamp sets on my easel card. 'Spade-slide', 'Floral Set' and a Red Gingham sentiment from a fabby new set of twelve that can be purchased over in the shop @ £12.99.

How I made my card : LC White Scalloped Card, SU Crumb Cake Card, My Mind's Eye Papers, Sizzix Scallop Die, Scallop circle punch, Aquamarkers and Kaisercraft cream pearls. I have edged with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

You have until Saturday 13th August, to enter the challenge. Looking forward to seeing all of your entries.

Had better go and get some tea, have been out and about today, dropping the girls here, there and everywhere. One to a bowling party, the other to the hairdressers then Georgia is off to a Leaver's Disco this evening, so David & I actually have an evening all to ourselves, first time in ages!

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by,

Little Claire New July Club Stamp Release

Good morning, oh what a bad blogger I have been! Do I have an excuse? Well I have been very busy with my demos for Newbury, which was wonderful! So lovely to meet up with some blogging buddies and meet lots of like-minded mad women like myself, lol! Also have a poorly little piggy to look after, she has a chest infection and needs a lot of love and care. Georgia has had her last sports day at middle school, it was great fun, she came first for nearly every race, but guess who forgot her hat and now has a sunburnt head? Yep, you guessed right ME lol!

Anyway, I wanted to let you know about the new stamps that are now available to buy over at Little Claires . These little cuties are so gorgeous to work with, I am a big hedgehog fan, so these are so right for me. There are two new sets of sentiment stamps too, both at £12.99 for twelve stamps per pack, what a bargain! What I love about these stamps is, the wordings are so different from any other stamp sets that I have seen and are more personal, which is great for the card receiver.

Here are some of my DT cards using them :

Also, Gill & Steve are doing some wonderful bargain purchases, today's can be snapped up for £5 and if you love Giraffe's you will be in for a treat! Whizz on over there, this offer is only available until midday tommorrow.

Georgia goes to her new secondary school for the day tommorrow, not sure who is more nervous, me or her! Her new form tutor is one we have known since Amy went there, so we can relax somewhat.

Ok, had better get some lunch and so some blog hopping, sorry if I havent been over to see your makes lately, will make up for it this afternoon. Oh and don't forget to pop on over to Little Claire's and grab yourself a bargain or three!

Have a great day!
