Hi everyone, I can't believe tomorrow is the last day of the year! Where did it go. Sorry no cards for a while but you know the silly season. This is the Loads of Love set and Short & Sweet for the sentiment. Used a cupcake stamp I had that is an incentive stamp demos give out with orders and a slice of metal cake! This was for CC195 on splitcoasters as I thought these colours were a bit more manly and this is for a man. Used the cuttlebug on the background and my brand new Cricut that Guy bought me on the weekend as an early birthday present (aren't I lucky!). Well hope you all have a fabulous and safe new years eve and look out for my January newsletter on Thursday for all the fantastic new offers that start next month!

Good Thursday morning. Happy Birthday Elsie. This is the card that I made for my mother-in-law for her birthday today. Hope she likes it. It is for SC206 over on splitcoasters and seemed to get good reviews over there. Unfortunately this set is retired but I used Basic Phrases which is still in the book. The DP isn't SU either but really loved it and I think it worked well with Bashful Blue and Very Vanilla. Off to work for a few hours again today and then have a million errands to do - can't we have more time before Christmas? I need a pause button! Guy is off on his break up day for work today so expect him to come home a little worse for wear (if he even comes home that is!).
Have a great day everyone.

Hi everyone sorry to be gone so long but things have been seriously hectic but hey guess I'm not the only one with Chrissy only 2 weeks away!!! Just thought I would let you know that the Summer Mini Catalogue has started and will be finally collecting mine from the post office tomorrow (that had better be the parcel that is waiting for me!) so if you would like a copy just drop me a line or of course you can view it online. This is one of the adorable new sets from that catalogue called Love Owl-ways. Isn't it just too cute. I made this for CC195 over on splitcoaststampers and gave it to my hubby for his recent birthday. Used Whisper White, Sahara Sand and Basic Black cardstock and then stamped image with black Staz-On Ink and then watercoloured with the blender pen.
Quick reminder that I can do last minute gift certificates for Stampin' Up! products ordered through me if anyone is lost for an idea. I can only accept cash for these though. Also wanted to let everyone know that Sale-A-Bration is coming in January and I have had a sneak preview of the lovely stamp sets you can get for free. A great time to have a party or become a demo even. If that all sounds too hard then just by spending $100 you can select a free stamp set from the special Sale-A-Bration range that will never be available again. Have a great day.

Made this card for a friends birthday. Thought I would share it with you all.
vanilla cardstock, chocolate chip cardstock, handmade paper, chocolate chip ink, gold brads, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon and some cream with gold edged ribbon from the stash heap.
Stamps: Oh, So Lovely and Basic Phrases
Hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Need to get going to bed as back to the daily grind tomorrow!
Happy crafting until next time - email me your creations.

Have finally done some pictures for you all! Sorry about the photography I'm still getting there. This card was an order for someone for a 40th birthday. Used up some scrap pieces lying around except for the base which was Whisper White. Decided to use the Card sketch challenge SC 195 on Splitcoaststampers for some inspiration. Hope she likes it! Just love those punches and my cuttlebug.
