Get Well Soon

I made a card! It took a long time to get to it but I made one! A family friend had an operation this week so I made a card to send to her from our family. Although she is on the road to recovery we hope this card will cheer her up! On a plus side for me, the card is made from all stampin up! product! Love it!

(Click on the photo to make it larger - you'll see it better, I was lazy and didn't get the photo tent out!)

Card Recipe:
Image - Stamp from Fun and Fast Notes
Paper - Tea Party designer paper
Cardstock- from earth elements pack (can't remember exact colour!)
Others - White Grosgrain ribbon, button from mini catalogue, linen thread

I'm off to relax for the rest of my Sunday - the ironing might not get done! Hehe!

Until next time.....

Baby Announcement

I finally made a card! This is a design I have put together for my friend who is expecting a baby in late August - I have decided to make baby announcements for her. I also have another friend who is pregnant and due in late September, so I have to make more designs so she can have announcement cards too!

I played around with this card a lot but I'm really pleased with the outcome (I cased it from Papertrey Ink - I think from Nichole's blog)

Card Recipe:
Card - from a pack bought at Pear Tree Yard in Nottinghamshire (excellent craft shop - very cheap!) and Bazzil Cardstock
Paper - Papermania
Stamps (bear and sentiment)- Stampin Up!
Ribbon - Stampin Up! (from the mini catalogue)

I'm not sure when I'll next get to make a card as it's a busy few weeks at work and I'm still not feeling great so craft time will be at a minimum - not happy about that!

Happy Fathers day to my lovely daddy for tomorrow and for all other daddy's out there!

Until next time....

No creations for a while :(

Today I do not have any creations to share with you - because I haven't made any! Unless you count a dodgy card that I do not like - so I'm not sharing that! Hehe!

I've had a busy week and one of my best friends turned 23 this week too, so we've been busy celebrating! We went to Weston Super Mare for the day on Friday and had great fun! Here are my 3 friends heading for a paddle in the sea, although the sea was so far out that it ended up being a paddle in the mud!

Hopefully I'll be back soon with some creations! I also have a blog award from Katrina that I need to post and to follow the instructions that it comes with!

Until next time....

Lovin Stampin Up!

My first order as a Stampin Up! demonstrator arrived today! Woo hoo! I placed the order late Monday evening and it was delivered by DHL at 9.30 this morning, now how efficient is that?!

My order was huge thanks to the extra offer they run for new demo's when they place their first order. If you want more information about that let me know.

Here is a picture of all my goodies, I had fun just looking at all the stuff and stroking it! One day I'll get round to inking it and making some creations! I've ordered some stamp sets that I just can't wait to play with.

When my back was turned and the box was empty my cat made a run for it.....

.... he just loves to get in boxes!

There's no new creations to show today, but I wanted to share my excitement of my order! Now I have to find places for it all - I have some new boxes that it will fit into with the rest of the Stampin Up! stuff that I have already purchased!

Until next time....
