Well, Christmas is nearly here and I have just about made all my cards – as I make a card for everyone I send to (62) and no one is the same – all originals! – they take a long time and I have not really posted any and all my other cards have gone on hold for the moment.
We did a wonderful class with Jo from STampin Up last Thursday (go to her blog on my side bar and you will see the gorgeous box and cards she designed for our class). I know you can buy the class from her too – such fun to do with our great crowd of friends.
We are doing another one with Jo on Thursday too for a Shutter Album with the Stampin Up gear so can’t wait to do that one – think we will have 8 round my table for that one.
So sorry no cards today, tried to do some Christmas shopping after visiting with my Mum, sister and great niece and did get a few things for my grown up boys. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day at this time of year, this afternoon after all that horrid rain!
Well, I have at long last gotten round to doing some cards. My sister bought me this stamp in Hawaii (lucky girl!) and have used it for some birthday cards today.
The papers are from my stash from long ago, the statement stamps are from Jo at Stampin Up used with their oval punches which are great – can’t say enough about the quality of Stampin Up! Ribbon and flowers are from Craft Obsessions and the umbrella ornaments were from The Range.
Hope you like them and that I can get more time to create!
Sorry I haven’t been writing or posting anything recently. My hubby and I went away over the half term holidays to Switzerland which was lovely and I have been scrapbooking the autumn foliage photos I took. If I get round to taking photos of them I will post them! Also, I have been making loads of family and friends Christmas cards which just seem to be taking forever and haven’t really gotten around to anything really creative.
I have bought quite a few new STampin Up sets since then, more papers and ink sets too which were badly needed so will get back to it as soon as I can.
My sister, friends and I are doing a lovely project with Jo this week making one of her Christmas tins with cards inside which will hopefully give me some more ideas – she has so many, especially after being at the european weekend away with Stampin Up recently.
Look in when you can,
