I'm here to tell you my other bit of good news for the week....... I've been asked by my lovely friend Ruth to design using her gorgeous new stamps which are available at A Passion for Stamps. This is Ruth's first rubba adventure and I was blown away when she asked me to come up with some samples. The difficulty is what to start with as the designs are just so scrummy and I've so many ideas buzzing around in my head, but I decided to make my first card with Jenny at the Beach because it fits with the current season. When I saw this amazing creation by my friend Dena I just knew I had to attempt a stair fold card to create the beach theme, thank you so much for the inspiration Dena! I'm entering my card into this week's Stamp With Fun Challenge where the theme is 'At The Sea'! Everything on the card was made with paper and card scraps really, apart from the beach hut..... the blue stripey paper is a Pink Petticoat download.
I hope you will get the chance to hop over to A Passion for Stamps and take a look at all the new designs....... bet you'll be spoilt for choice, hee hee!
Well I apologise for a lack of blog hopping over the last day or so and I probably won't get to you all tonight. It's my wedding anniversary you see and also probably the busiest week of the academic year at the college where I work so I've been putting in all the hours I can! The only reason I'm allowed on here tonight is because I'm going to show you the cards and flowers I've had - plus my daughter Georgia has cooked a three course meal for us and I promised to show you the prawn cocktail. After I've finished typing this it's back to the hubster for wine and chocs....... what more could a girl want? Only downside is I've got to be up early for work in the morning so I'll have to go easy on the wine ;o(
Here is a piccie of my flowers and cards...... Georgia gave us the one on the left, I made the one next to it and have shown it on my blog previously, the next one along was made by Georgia for Chris to give to me and finally there is a card from his parents.
And here is the famous prawn cocktail and it was yummy! Georgia made a homemade pie for main course and followed that with homemade shortbread biscuits with ice cream...... I can barely move, lol!!!
Right I'm off back to the hubster then before I get in trouble! Thanks for bearing with me - I know it means a lot to Georgia that I'm showing you some of her hard work. I hope to catch up with you all very soon ;o)
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
