A Halloween Post/ Christmas Sample

Hello there everybody
Just thought I would post another sample of the Christmas cards we are making on the class this Saturday and also show you the Halloween door hanger I made for my nephew.

Needed something long to curl my card and couldn't find my wooden kebab sticks so had to use my lethal metal one, perhaps won't bring them on Saturday!

I was finishing this hanger off at 8am this morning, that's keen... Truth be known I forgot to put the rubbish bins out last night before it went dark and Stephen was away, so I had to be up early to get them out. Surprising how much one can achieve when one starts early. Trouble is I am now ready for bed at 9pm.

Pumpkin was cut out early too and soup made... Bit basic but all good fun...

Last but not least the peek you have been waiting for. Paper again from Bazzill Basics- 'Count Down to Christmas' with a great spot design on the reverse, my favourite spots... smells lovely too!
Paper addicts will know what I mean..
See you on Saturday.
Take care.

First Peek At Cards For Christmas Classes

Good Afternoon everyone
Hooray I have got my computer back, can't believe I have missed it so much- what am I coming too!
It has been away to India with my hubbie as he needed it to work with. I know now what I need to ask Father Christmas for...I have been a very good girl! When I look back I would never have thought I needed any form of Laptop computer or Kindle as I always hated technology and couldn't understand it, maybe I need to re-phrase that, I still don't understand a lot of it, but, I am learning...slowly...
I have been desperate to get my Christmas samples on the blog for the ladies that are on the first class, 2nd November. I was going to work on Leanne's Laptop but it is so slow...anyway here they are...

I have used a scalloped craft card which I got from Craftwork Cards and the checked paper is a Bazzill Basics from the Nordic collection. I have been waiting ages for the christmas papers to come in. The stamp is Patch Reindeer from Woodware or should it be Patch the Reindeer, that sounds better. There are also nice wordings on the stamp to and a snowflake which is always handy... Used a bit of felt as well and when I took the picture I forgot to put his bell on.

My second card is more like a tag within a card.

Gate-fold card used this time in the craft card in order to make the curling effect. Curling is the new folding!
The wreath has been stamped in Adirondack espresso and embossed with clear embossing powder and then coloured in with Promarkers.
Hope you like the samples I will put another one on if I can manage it. I need to work more quickly, that is always my motto but I have trouble achieving it, I can easily wander off to make tea like I have to right now.
Pity we have to do other things!
Thanks for dropping by.

Christmas Cards at Home...

Hello everyone
Just a short post today showing the Christmas card sample I have made for my home classes.I have decided to do two afternoons from 1pm till 4pm. The first one will be on Sunday 20th October and the second Tuesday 22nd October. Tuesdays class will be a repeat of Sundays. I can fit six ladies round my large table, at a push I have a large work surface we could use depending on how everything works out. It will be £13.00 for the class with a freebie Glitter glue which we will be using on the cards.

The theme on this class is three cards using one stamp set. The stamp being a Woodware clear stamp called 'Huge Snow'. Colours used are pale blues,greys and browns with a bit of glitter.

There will be plenty or tea/coffee and cake, hope you can make it.

Please let me know as soon as you can because of the limited places.

Back to work now on my other class samples so as to get them on the blog as soon as....
Thanks for dropping by.
