A few bits and pieces to show

Wow, I can't believe that it's nearly 2 weeks since I last blogged TUT!!! Well here's the excuse why - just a few things to show what I've been making.

I've finally joined My creative scrapbook for 6 months and for that I get a lovely parcel every month filled with new release papers, prima flowers,etc. This month the theme was Autumn - papers of lovely read and greens etc perfect for some of the photos taken whilst doing a 10 mile!!!!! walk last weekend around Willingham Woods / Tealby. Considering it was September it was like a summers day ambling round the woods - really enjoyed it.


Finally found some lovely Melissa Frances papers in The Hobby Shop and also the Baby Stickers sheet so just HAD to make a baby card for Wendy a friend at work who has become a Nanna again. As usual had a book of Baby rub-ons that has never been touched!! so added the word BABY to the card, stamped a couple of swirls in Brown Memento, tied a pink ribbon to the front and finally added a pink gingham brad to it.

. Honestly - the bow is a lot neater then what it looks like here!

Then I made a birthday card with some of the remaining Melissa Frances paper - this was quite a simple one - used my Martha Stewart Doily punch (absolutely my fave punch at the moment), a heart using the Cuttlebug and a Happy Birthday stamped in Memento Brown and finally .........

a Anniversay card again for a colleague at work. He wanted a card that was slightly different this year so......

This is the front of the envelope card decorated with Love is like a butterfly (used this stamp at Sues and fell in love with it and just had to buy it) .......

and this is the inside of it. Anything can be added here, I just made a little card and stamped a quote on it. AND it is so easy to make - just 1 piece of 12"by12" patterned paper is required.

Oh just one more - this card is my favourite - hardly anything added to the card front except the image which I think is beautiful.

Well thats it for now TTFN xx
