A little while ago I went on a course at The Glitter Pot and luckily for me Stamping Caz was the demonstrator. These are a bit like the ones we made, but I've just changed it to suit my sister-in-law, I'm half way through making another one for my niece which I'm hoping to get done tonight so I may be able to show you that tomorrow. Thanks Caz.

Another day and another blue card, not sure why all my cards seem to be blue this year I'll have to try some different colours. Not had much chance to get much made a the moment, what with broken arms, children being ill, getting some christmas shopping done and trying to keep up to date with my Maths work, hopefully I might get some done over the next couple of days.

Another christmas card, getting there slowly, this is the first time that I have tried stitching on a card before not sure if the card needs something else, any ideas? I've had a bit of a busy week again, I have not been able to get much done, and to top it off my daughter Jordan broke her arm at school on Friday. She has been really good and does not seem to be in too much pain.

Xmas Cards

Hi everyone, here are a couple of Christmas cards that I have made using my kids as models, I ended up making quite a few of these to sent to Nan's and Grandad's, aunts and uncles. I know that they are very simple but I think they look great.

Wednesday, 12 November 2008 Over at Pink Gem Designs at the above address are some new fabulous stamps, you have to take a peek.xx

A little while ago I went out and brought Quick Cards Made Easy, I don't normally take much notice of the free papers that you get free, but this time i decided to have a go at using the free stickers and paper that came with it, and here are the results. hope you like.

I seem to be doing a lot of blue christmas cards this year, again the paper is from The Glitter Pot and I can't remember where I got the stamp from but it's made by Stampendous. I have so much to do and such little time to do it all in, we are quite busy this week but still trying to get some cards made, make some christmas presents, and I've got a maths exam to sit in 2 weeks.

I thought I would try making a couple of more tradional cards, which I am not to good at, but I'm really pleased with the way these turned out. Can't remember where I got the stamp from, but I know I really liked it. I have not been making much this weekend as I have finally started my christmas shopping. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I can get some cards made this week even though it's half term.

Xmas Cards

I managed to sit down last night and get some Christmas cards made up for my daughter Larna to send to her playschool friends and here is a selection of a few of them. The only problem now is my other daughter Jordan wants me to make a load up for her, so today I have been colouring loads of images in and hopefully I'll have time to make some up tonight.

Gift Voucher

Well at last, I have finally managed to upload some pictures of what I have been up to. This card is for putting a gift voucher in, very easy and simple to make. I got all the paper, brads and ribbon from the glitter pot.

Nikki's give away

I've just been looking at what other people have been making, and seen that Nikki is giving away a surprise box of goodies if you follow her blog, so take a look.

Don't you just love all things girly? I love making cards for little girls they are so much fun. All the paper, stamps etc.. used to make these cards is from The Glitter Pot. The Penny Black stamp is one of the very first I ever brought and it's still as good now as it was when I first got it.

Thursday, 9 October 2008

Not sure what I made this card for, but I just love this Penny Black image it can be used for such a wide range of stuff, Anniversary, 21st birthdays, congratulations etc.... I have made some other christmas cards over the last week or so, but having problems uploading them at the moment. Anyway I'm off to Brighton now for a little shopping trip.

Larna's at playschool this morning, so I've had chance to make a card up without any help!! I have been stamping a lot of christmas images so it has been quite nice to make something a bit different. I got the stamp from Crafts u Love and the paper is from my stash.

Time does fly. I've not been up to much over the last couple of days. I've have only just started to play with the Magnolia stamps, but I am loving them, they come out so lovely, gonna have to see if I can get a couple for my christmas cards. Talking of christmas cards, while I was making them my daughter friends I came across some clear stamps that I had ordered a couple of months ago and had fogotten I had so the plan is to use these, hopefully get some made today while the kids are out.

Thursday, 25 September 2008

Hi there, I have been looking at other peoples blogs, and a lot of you all use promarkers to colour your images, just wondered where you got these from.

Tuesday, 23 September 2008

Where does the time go? Not been making many cards over the last couple of days, I've been a bit busy. I've been helping up at my daughters school, because they are doing their cycling proficiency, and it is so scary watching them wobble all over the road while they are trying to look behind them. I popped down to The Glitter Pot yesterday to get some double sided tape and I'm not sure how, but I came out with a bag load of stuff. I had better get on and make some cards with it.

Spiral Whisper Challenge

This is my card for the Spiral Whisper challenge this week I hope it looks cold and wintery.

Thursday, 18 September 2008

I have finally started making my christmas cards. Had a bit of a nightmare cause my daughter Larna has been in and keeping us awake at night, so have not been able to do to much, but I do love christmas and always enjoy making all my cards at this time of year I'm going to try and start making some mini cards for my daughter to send to all her playschool friends.

Tuesday, 16 September 2008

Hi there I did manage to get my Five male cards done this weekend, these are the final two, which I am quite pleased with.
I'm now thinking about making christmas cards, but I'm waiting for a delivery from Elzybells, it should be here today so I can't wait, the only problem being my postman does not turn up till lunchtime.

Saturday, 13 September 2008

This is my 3rd male card this weekend which is one that I want to put into the Spiral Whisper challenge. Not too bad going so far I might even be able to make more than five.
Hi there, yesterday was a very busy day, I helped at my daughters playschool and then picked my friends 2 girls up from school and feed and put them to bed. Now I'm having a nice peaceful day to make some cards.
I'm not very good at making male cards, not sure why maybe the girly paper is just to tempting, but I've set myself a challenge to try and make at least 5 male cards this weekend. These cards are the first two that I've done, very simple but things can only get better.

I'm new to all this computer stuff and it's taken me ages to work out how to write on my blog page, I almost gave up. I've been messing about with craft stuff for a couple of years, but over the last couple of months I've really got into making cards.
This is one of many cards that I have made, please let me know what you think any feedback would be great. This card was made using a Penny Black stamp coloured in using H2O'S and various bits from The Glitter Pot.
