Little Claire - Crawley Day Makes

Good afternoon, hope you have had a great day.  The girls and I went clothes shopping today, got some wondeful bargains.
I just wanted to share the cards that the ladies made in my workshops yesterday, at the Little Claire - Crawley Day.  Please do forgive the photos, they aren't my best lol :)
Firstly above, we used the gorgeous stamp set 'Bright Blue Skies' and sentiment.  We have stuck a little butterfly onto some acetate to make it fly above the boy image.
Secondly, we made this slider card using my favourite stamp set, 'Buttons & Bows'. We used the stitching stamp from 'Georgina's Buttons & Stitching' set of stamps to add the stitches to the edges.
Here is the card out fully. We coloured in with Promarkers, added some 'handmade' ribbon as a pully and through the button.
Lastly 'The Magic of Christmas' stampset has these cute little wellie-wearing geese. There are three great main images and lots of sentiments in this set.  We have added bakers twine and a lovely snowflake to finish the card off.
We had a wonderfully fun day and Steve and David made hunderds of cups of teas.
Will be back tommorrow with my October DT club stamp cards.  Have a good evening, I will be watching episode three of Downton :)

Good afternoon, here are a couple of cards that I have made using the newly launched today over at Little Claire .
My first card is using the gorgeous 'Little Owl Family', I just love it! I have used lots of pastel colours and have added a Happy Anniversary sentiment.

My second card is using the new 'Baby Tree' stamps which can be used with or without the tree as show below.

I have also used the 'Buttons & Stiches' set and also the 'Stamp set of the month' which has a fabulous baby sentiment in.

Happy 16th Birthday Jess!!!

Good morning, what a wonderfully sunny day it is here today.  The sun has come out for my lovely Jess, who turns sweet 16 today.
Happy Birthday Jess !!!!
Here is a recent photo taken of us girlies, (left to right) Amy, Jess & Georgia.

Have borrowed David's pc quickly to upload this photo and Jess' birthday card (below).  Mine is due back from the shop tommorrow, and I have missed it so much.

Her card is using a Gorguss girly stamp (love them!) which my lovely friend brought me for my birthday, actually I got four new ones, what a lucky girl I am!

The papers are from a lush papar pack, sentiment from Stamping Up and butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
Have loads of teens coming round for a party this evening, god help the neighbours lol!

Little Claire Monthly Challenge # 25 'Straight-Up'

Hello, so lovely to be back in blogland.  I am without a computer as my brand new one has had to go back to the shop to be fixed.  Am very miffed as I have only had it a couple of months and do rely on it so much.  What did we do without them back in the dark ages lol!  Thanks to my lovely Jess who has lent me hers inbetween doing her homework, so that I could load this card.
Anyway, yesterday was my birthday.  I had a lovely family day with David and the girlies.  Got spoilt rotten by family and friends, so much of it crafty bits and bobs and had so many cards they have filled up my bay window.  What a lucky girly I am! I got to choose what I wanted to have for tea, didn't want to go out as lots of the box, so we had fish and chips.  Didn't know that wine went with this particular meal, but I will certainly be trying it again.
Here is my card above for the new challenge over at Little Claire's .  This month we want to see card that stand up, hence the title.  The DT girlies have made lots of gorgeous cards, do pop on over via the link to take a look.  There will be lots of Little Claire goodies on offer, so get creating!
On my card I have used a cute little image called 'Garden Fun', SU cardstock, papers from a new paperpack called 'Blank Canvas', Die-Namics Grass die and wooden buttons and leaves.  The sentiment is one that goes really well with the image and is from the 'Super Six' set of stamps.
Am having a crafty day today and it's uniform ironing day, so have decided to put on the Christmas edition of Downton Abbey to get in the mood for the brand new series this evening, me and the girlies are sooooo excited, have the wine chilling and choccies ready, if you love it as much as we do, enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by,

Sketch Saturday Challenge # 223 'Jen's DT Week' - The Ribbon Girl

Good evening, am a little late in loading this card as my server has been down.  The sketch above is another great one to follow and the prize for this challenge is a £10 voucher from The Ribbon Girl.

My card has wonderful new image from Little Claire's from their new club stamp -      available now via their website.
 I have been rummaging through my box of crafty scraps and have made my card using them.  Some fabulous papers from a great paper pack, Baker's Twine and a little key charm.  The sentiment is from Little Claire as well which is included in the set.

I had a wonderful time demoing at Biggin Hill, so lovely to see so many familiar faces and catch up. Am busy getting the girls ready to go back to school on Thursday, well Georgia is off to the Paralympics with the school, am so jealous, tickets are so hard to get hold of.

Right, back to my craft room, am busy tidying and sorting as recently brought myself some new cupboards for my craft bits.

Have a wonderful evening whatever you do.
