Good evening, here is very quick post to share my blog project for Ali-Craft.  I have used the great little set from 'Paperartsy'. All products and instructions are listed HERE on the Ali-Craft blog.
Have had a really long day prepping for forthcoming workshops this weekend, so am off for an early night after catching up with my soaps.
Take care,

Oh Man Card

Hello there, I am sharing a male themed card that my ladies made at my class last week.  I used a great little male set called 'Oh Man', I just love this image.
As most of my girlfriends know, I cheat when it comes to men's cards, so my crafty ladies set me a challenge each month to come up with a male themed card.  I am really enjoying the challenge.  Also I tend to use square cards but this shape is really good to use for bigger cards.

 If you love this little stamp (it comes in a set with lots of others including a beer glass), you can get a huge 20% off on-site today, so go fill your boots (or baskets) lol!

Have a great Sunday,

Weekly Blog Project - Christmas Card & Candle

Good morning, thank Crunchy it's Friday! Wow, this week has been a very long one. Birthday's, colds and crafty work. Am so looking forward to spending time with my girlies and sitting down with them to watch the new series of 'Downton Abbey', am sooooo glad its back on Sunday :)
Anyway, it is my turn to create a blog project for Little Claire this week and I have made a gift set of a candle and card, using the fabulous 'Poinsettia Cluster' set.
As you can see, I have added some Poinsettia die shapes and lots of glorious red ribbon.  The paper is from Craft Creations, which I think goes so well together.
I have listed all products and instructions over on the Little Claire blog HERE.
Lots of prep to do for the Little Claire workshops, which are taking place next weekend, so had better grab a large coffee and get on with it!
Have a fabby weekend!

Driving Home for Christmas!

Morning, you know when you get a tune stuck in your head and it just won't go away? Well good old Chris Rea, what a super Christmas tune! 
Well, it is only September and am already thinking about Christmas presents - arrgh! Not like me at all, I always leave things until November to get sorted especially as September is birthday month for me and Jess.  My lovely girl turns 17 next week and I have my birthday this weekend, am not sharing my age as it hurts to say it out loud lol!
Anyway, over at Little Claire you can purchase this cute little stamp set 'Delivering Christmas Wishes' for only £5.99 (normally £8.99) until Thursday 12th.  It is such a great set to play with.
I have made a quick little card using three of the images, which I absolutely love! The robins remind me of the minions from 'Dispicable Me'.  The car is one that my dear old dad had and I remember we used to have to stuff things in the boot and on the roof like in the image, brings back good childhood memories lol.
Ok, off back to the craft room, have lots of prep to get sorted for workshops and classes.
Have a great Monday!

We Three Cats

 Good afternoon, am a little late in posting this as I have been catching up with housework etc after my day demoing at Biggin Hill yesterday.  It was so lovely (as always) to meet up with all of the Little Claire customers that come to visit the stand and have a giggle with Steve and my lovely friends.
Anyway, here is a little card I am sharing today using the gorgeous 'We Three Cats' that I have made for the Monday project - Little Claire Likes, over on the Little Claire blog.
For four days only (or until stocks run out), you can purchase this cute little stamp, for the great reduced price of £3.99 (normally (£5.50).
I have also used the great new 'Christmas Postcard' sentiments that were launched last week, ten great little postcards for £12.99 - bargain!
For my card product list and instructions on how I made the card, you can go via HERE to the blog post.
Have a lovely afternoon,
