Christmas in October...........

Hello Ladies

I am back with the cards for October... Christmas cards.....themed around the Craftwork Cards Festive Chalkboard collection.
Red, green, white and of course the black. The black seems unusual for Christmas cards but it is great for embossing on, with Versamark and white embossing powder.

Christmas coloured stickles!!!!


The first sample I have used the Lindsay Mason stamp...'Winter Wonderland Snowman'.

Using the white embossing powder...on a shaped card.

The second sample I have used the Woodware stamp,' Noel Window'.

This is a great stamp that you can cut down and make smaller cards or use the entire stamp as I have done here. Just a sneak peek though!!!

I have these stamps in stock but if you would like this Woodware stamp in particular, it may be a good idea to let me know as soon as possible. The reason being I had word from Judith at Woodware that they are retiring at the end of this year and so I am thinking ahead that you may need to order this  stamp early before she sells out.. the Noel stamp is £5.50.

Panic set in when I got the letter....Woodware are one of my favourite stamps!!!!! What am I going to do!!!

I have been debating on what days to do these classes on, as I had mentioned having a small break. The weather has been great and I have enjoyed tidying up the garden and putting in the Autumn flowers, but I have to say I was ready to start my cards again. I think I lost my routine!!!! Anyway the dates are:-

Sat . 8th     October
Sat.  22nd  October
Afternoon 1:30pm till we finish.

Let me know if you would like to come along. If these classes get booked up I will add another day.
Thank you for popping by.

For those of you that haven't seen Charlie of he is!!!

     Doing what he is always doing.....

                                                                 Cat Napping!!!!!

Take care.

Flowers Just For You....

Hello Ladies

I can't believe I have made my ninth' Card of the Month'......
September is usually a lovely month one of my favourites.

A useful card for a Birthday, Anniversary or Engagement etc.
Lili of the Valley stamp:- Close Your Eyes.

Pink floral paper from MME

I have used pink felt for the decorated corners. I have also shown a close up, so you can see that I have stitched round the edge of the card and the felt corners are stitched together, before I stuck them to the card. I use my sewing machine which stitches paper easily, just remember not to use too much glue or sticky tape as that can clog everything up.

Ingredients as they say:-

1 x   7"x7" Scalloped card
1 x  My Mind's Eye paper(Memorable 'Journey' Adventure paper.
White card for layering
Spellbinders Labels Two Dies
Die Namics Corner Dies
1 x LOTV stamp - Close Your Eyes
Sentiment stamp
Assorted Promarkers
Pink net
Ric Rac
Pink thread (for stitching)
Leaf Punch
Glossy Accents

I have made up a few packs with the Felt corners, Net and Ric Rac etc. plus I have the Papers and Cards.
Till next time
Take care everyone
