A few little Thank-You's

A super quick post for you today as I am working on my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack Class, more details and dates HERE, book now to be sure to get the day you would like ;-)
Anyway, I needed a few little cards this week to pop in with orders, amongst other things, and these quick little designs were the end result. This one was made with an off cut of the One Sheet Wonder we will be making at my August Class, see full class details HERE
and this little one too, again using Baby Blossoms, sentiment is from the Level One set Afterthoughts, which I inked using a marker just to say Thanks,
and I made this card to go in with the prize I gave away at Netley Marsh Steam and Craft Fair last week,
Pretty in Pink flower (Daisy #2 die) with a Marina Mist button centre,
and the sentiment popped out over the "vase"
Right, back to the grindstone, hope you are enjoying the weather where you are, it's glorious here today! Yay!
Thanks for visiting,

Dad's Birthday

Good Morning,
Hope all is well with you today, we are supposed to be having a BBQ today but it looks likely to be an indoor one unfortunately :-(
Anyway, I do have a little card for today, I made it for F.I.L birthday which was this week,as well as a Victoria sponge :-)
Card first, I used a colour combo of Certainly Celery and Soft Suede,
I spritzed the Soft Suede layer using the Crumb Cake marker for a subtle background and stitched around the edges adding a piece of Celery satin ribbon too
I used the ole faithful for a male card again, Engraved Greetings! You need this stamp set! and it's only £12.95, page 96 if you want to have a look. DSP is from the Elegant Soiree pack
and I stitched inside too, this time a Crumb Cake layer, and used the stamp to give a ghosted image inside to finish
and the cake, filled traditionally with strawberry jam and buttercream :-D yum!
Well, that's it for today,
I hope you have a fab weekend, whatever the weather ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today,

Handmade Teachers Gifts

Hello there,
I thought I would share with you the bits I made for the little ones teachers, now I know that teachers get lots at this time of year but I tried to give them things that might be useful in a classroom if nothing else ;-)
Just a little warning though, lots of pictures for this post, you might wanna grab a cuppa!
O.K. do you remember when we did the Colour Coach Blog Hop? I made a bus card? Well, these littleies are to match that for the teachers assistants from Zoe,
and from Zack I made more Owl cards, slightly different from last weeks,
all together,
For the teachers I made...
some pretty covered pegs, (I use mine all the time)
 a Post it note holder,
covered tissue packs, everyone needs a tissue, right?
and a book mark, I gave the teachers assistants the tissues and bookmark too,
Well, the kids said their teachers liked their gifts so all's well and I hope you have enjoyed today's post too!
Thanks for stopping by today,
Back tomorrow with more craftyness,

More Jems Birthdays :-)

Boy, July is one busy birthday month with those Jems! I have a birthday card for Lisa to show you today, it was her birthday yesterday so I should be fine to share this with you today.
I decided to use the super cute Level 2 stamp set (FREE that means) 'Cute by the Inch'
I love the cupcake image in this set which I inked here using the markers to get the two colours and then punched out using the Tag Punches,
and look at this scrummy ribbon rose, I made a very similar one for techniques class last month but the lovely Jo D came up with an even simpler way of making them, her tutorial is HERE,
I put the bottom strip through the crimper and spritzed it with shimmer spray before adhering,
and a little decoration inside with the Eyelet Border punch and the crimper again,
O.K. that's today's post for you. It's the first full day of the holidays today so I am hoping the kids want a PJ day as I have still got a list as long as your arm ;-)
Before I go please don't forget the July special finishes soon.
 And also please email me now to reserve your place at my August class, more pictures and details HERE.
I look forward to hearing from you soon :-D

I am scheduling this post on Saturday night this week as when I finished at the Netley Marsh Steam and Craft Show Friday night I was sooo tired I was asleep by 8.45!! Not like me at all but it was a really fun day and lovely to meet so many stampers too **waves to you**, last day today (Sunday) if you fancy a great day out with lots to see and do I can highly recommend it! Hope to see you there ;-)
Right, onto this weeks Simply Stampin' challenge, and we have a colour challenge for you this week...

I have paper pieced the birds, I love doing this with these little birds :-)
and an arty angle too
finally inside has a little decoration to finish, I used the level one DSP pack for the Poppy Parade and Mat Stack in Subtles for the Celery pieces,

Teachers Cards!

I have finally remembered to post the teachers cards I mentioned a few days ago, he he! We get there in the end eh?
But before I share the cards with you a quick reminder that I have still got a special offer or two running along side Stampin' Up's promotion, go HERE to read all about them but hurry, they finish in a little over a week :-)
Right, time for some teachers cards with Mr Owl. These cards were a request from a friend so I still have to make mine, eek! Better get cracking I think..
I used the old faithful Tart and Tangy, just perfect for teachers ;-) and as I didn't know of these were for men or women I had to keep them neutral so used linen thread instead of ribbon,
Teacher Owl with a free font I downloaded, can't remember the name, sorry!
and all 5 together
Well that's today's cards for you, I will be back tomorrow with this weeks Simply Stampin' Challenge card but don't forget you still have today to enter this weeks sketch challenge, we would love for you to join in :-)
And don't forget to come and say 'Hi' if you are at Netley Marsh Steam and Craft Fair this weekend!
Stampin' Hugs,
