Hostess Gift Challenge

Hi All,

Last Saturday I attended a SU training day, where Amanda showed us how to make a box of 4 cards.

A challenge was set within out team to make one, and this is what I came up with

If you like what you see and are interested in how it was made......... it's simple.

All you have to do is book a party with me.
I'll demonstrate how quick and easy projects like this can come together, to make lovely gifts.

The new 'Mini' catalogue is launched on the 1st April; the delightful butterfly I've used, is one of the new single stamps you can buy.

Pop back again in the next few days, and I'll show you some 'sneaky peaks' of what's on offer!!

Till the next time,

Hi all,

I'd like to thank JO for a fab time on Thursday, it was great to catch up with her again and she showed me how she'd created gorgeous effects using the brayer and only one colour tone. (Click on her name and you can nip over to her blog to have a peak
at the wonderful things she creates).

These were my attempts - some of the flowers and the brayering were all in the same colour, then a few other flowers were added in a darker colour. They're not as good as Jo's - by a long shot, but I enjoyed it so much, I've been experimenting!

I just love watching sunsets - but, I'm not sure whether my attempts are depicting the sun rising, or setting - LOL!! What do you think?
As you can see I started off by introducing a couple of colours...........and then got carried away!!

I just had to use the new birdie punch and gorgeous chocolate ribbon.
Hope you've enjoyed,

New Addition

Well Hooray,
the day finally arrived, and we picked up our new car on Friday

For those of you who know me, realise that since the end of November, I haven't been very mobile; and although I'm sorry to see the old one go - it's been great to be out and about in the sunshine this weekend (without worrying about mileage, over heating, or topping up with water every few miles - even the central locking started to fail towards the end!!)

May I say a massive 'Thank You' to all my friends who have constantly ferried me around for the past few months...
