I thought I'd share my lovely gift for having my stampin up party on friday I got some lovely set's of stamps too. Thanks Can't wait for your workshop on Friday. Oh by the way Amy my daughter has snaffled the ribbon that went so neatly around the top of the box.

for Darren and Rachel

I thought I would make a nice card for my oldest pal's wedding anniversary although I'm sure she thinks I'm a bit sad card making I think she'll like my card. I made it with tim holtz sizzix edge die, sizzix flourish and the wedding stamp is from lilly of the valley. I followed the allsorts challenge sketch.
and the colours from totally gorjuss challenge blog.
Hope y'all like it too!!

I think I made it rain with mmy last post....i got up this morning and it was tanking down :-( I threw this card together in a rush for a freinds little (Or not so little now) girl... I love the colours they are so vibrant and the hedgehog sticker went so well.....

sunny days to come xx

Hope you like my new box I made it after a stampin up workshop (making a similar box), the card is Stampin Up the so saffron colour so reminds me of sunshine it's time we had some don't you think after all that snow in the winter!!! The swirly pattern is a Stampin Up Roller but the tree in the middle is Kanban which I also love. I think i'll enter challenge 42 at summer colours....
Hope You Have a Lovely Day

I designed this card for my friend at work who was fifty at the end of april I am sure she still feels like the little girl on the front inside..... amongst her presents she got some perfume called confusion, a lookin annual, some dentu fix and bingo pens..... FAB
I bring these bottles home from work as work do not recycle glass and there's at least 100 a week so I bring them home to go in my glass bin but it seems such a shame so I used 3 to decorate for gifts.... I am sure i could do a better job but this was for 2 little boys so I thought blue was most apt..will have to use some more .....xx

Hi folks
I just got time to add a few things I've been making in what spare time.
I had a Stampin Up party last night it was fab and I got loads a stuff for being a hostess and I really enjoyed the girly company... I can't wait to get my new stash.....the only draw back of the party was my hubby was around and want to know what I'd bought so I had to fess up.

This is the front, inside and back of my mum's birthday card. It is made from a paper bag decorated and I will make a small book mark to slip inside the opening. This will be my final post tonight ...I still haven't managed to link my party bag to the challenge site but I can feel my eyes getting heavy. This is a late night for me already i'm usually asleep by 9.30 that's why I don't get anything done.
Thanks for looking.

EM's card

I made this card for another Elizabeth at work who is always immaculately dressed and very girly her hair is always gorgeous just like the digi stamps and she is scottish so i've added some girly pink tartan paper. Told you I'd gone a bit mad yesterday and i'm not finished yet.

This one's for Philip

This card is simply made didn't take long and I enjoyed coloring the Kan ban monkeys in. It's for my friends little boy who is definately a cheeky monkey but a gorgeous one he is 4 soon.

Amy's 7th birthday card

This took me a while as i used my new Kan ban wobbler stamps I just got from QVC and then glittered them with glitter magic (anti static glitters).Iused 4th dimension letter stamps on shrink plastic for the Amy and 7. Oh and I used my Martha Stewart hearts punch which i adore I must get some more .... so many things to buy so little time.x This is my fav card that I made mainly because It's for Amy and I know she'll love it for the dogs....

Happy 50th Elizabeth xxx

Got carried away yesterday and made loads mainly because David was entertaining Amy most of the day so I had time to catch up with some cards for friends. This one is for a colleugue at work who turns fifty on the 8th congrats Elizabeth xx.
