A Three Panel Card

Good evening, just popped by to share my project for 'Little Claire Likes' today.
I have made a three panelled card using the gorgeous stamp set - 'Freedom'.
It has to be my favourite of all of the stamps from LC, I never get bored stamping up the elements and colouring them in.
Here is the first panel of my card.  I have used lots of the glorious kraft card, Promarkers, pearls and of course, my favourite dotty ribbon.

I so love the two-part sentiment that comes with the set.

Here is the lovely butterfly cage from the set, such a lovely image!

The last page and final part of the sentiment, just beautiful!
You can purchase this wonderful set of stamps at the special sale price of £5.00 (normally £8.99), whilst stocks last.  If you want to treat yourself to this set, pop over HERE.
Off to enjoy the rain at last and make some Christmas cards, have a great evening!

A Christmas House

Good Monday to you,
Here is a little Christmas card I have made for the 'Little Claire Likes' project over on the blog today.
I have used the lovely 'Christmas House' stamp, some black and white card and silver embossing powder.
You can get this stamp HERE at a special price.  It is great to just stamp and emboss or if you love to colour in like myself, great for that too.
Off to lie down in a dark room and hopefully cool down, as this heat is beginning to get to me somewhat.
Thanks for popping by today,

It's a Pleasure Card

Good Monday morning, hoping all you bloggers out there are well today?
I am totally shattered after teaching for two days at the Little Claire workshops last weekend. A great time was had by all including my youngest, Georgia who came along to help and ended up teaching some shrink plastic! Think she has just a little bit of crafting in her blood lol!
Anyway, this gorgeous little image is a new Silhouette stamp from Little Claire and can be snapped up HERE and full product details and instructions on my card, can be found HERE on the blog.
Am hoping Georgia will stay awake at school today and want to wish my middle daughter Jess, a great first day on her work placement and my eldest Amy, good luck in her new job!
Am off to do some housework today and then am meeting family and a friend for some catch up time, of course over lots of Costa coffee lol!
Have a wonderful day!
