This one's for you Pat.....

My lovely SU sister Pat yesterday told me that she looks in on my blog everyday so this one is for her.
I was in a local seaside store (the kind that sell everything!!!) and found these A6 sized canvas packs for a ridiculous price and immediately thought SU. I think it helped that they were card sized so designing something wasn't too daunting.
As we are in the process of doing up our house I thought about something for Daughter no 2's bedroom... Trouble is she is a fantastic artist at aged 11 so no pressure there then!!!
In the end I plumped for Vintage Vogue combined with my favourite punch, Two Step Bird (I love how versitile this punch is) .
Pat, I hope you like this and Thank You for looking in everyday. I promise to try and blog more often x

An English Country Garden.....

I have waited to share this card with you as I wanted to make sure my SU mummy, KraftyBiker, had received hers.
I made this card after seeing something similar in a mag. At first I mistook their image to be this one from "Because I Care" (a level 1 hostess gift).
I decided to CASE the card anyway but use the SU image.

I made KraftyBikers in Soft Suede as it reminded me of her two cats but the card above is done in River Rock..... Is there a better colour at the mo???
Once I had done this one I just couldn't stop and ended up making a futher 5 designs using the same stamp set. This is going to be the set for my first all day class in Louth on March 5th.
If you would like to join me for this class or would like the opportunity to earn this stamp set free for yourself then email me at: or call 07917631483

Before my move to Mablethorpe I lived near Stamford and this is where I signed up to be a Demo. I left many good friends down there who are also part of my Stampers 10. Every now and again (ok, more often than not!) I head on down there for a get together with the girls.

Last time I went they asked me to bring a little something to do and this was it.

This is a design I saw following a link on ILWS. I thought I'd saved the details in my fav folder but can't for the life of me find it now. I will link back just as soon as I find it. The original was done in blue and held school photos. I wanted something a little more vintage and romantic so played around and this is the result.

I hope you like and will be back with more soon

What a class.....


Setting out with nerves more like jelly than steel I took myself of to Louth to face my first class since moving up here.
I should have known better, crafters are a friendly bunch no matter where in the world you are and these guys (ok 5 ladies and 1 bloke) were no exception.
Not having a clue as to their levels of ability and with Valentines fast approaching I decided on the card and box above. It has the ability to be as simple or as complex as you wish so fit the bill for a first class. I have to say everyone did a fantastic job, even Chris who has never made a card in his life and turned up armed with just 2 pairs of scissors and a willingness to have a go. I wish I had that confidence some days!!!
Now I've had a few more reminders about how to get photos from camera to computer I hope to show some more of my recent projects over the next few days.
Hope you all had a good Valentines x
