Ornament Keepsake Decoration

We've all been there I'm sure when we say we will do something
and then regret saying it!?!  Well me and my big mouth said 
 " . . . and I'll show you all how to make the Christmas Decoration 
on the front of the of the new Autumn/Winter Catalogue . . . "!!!!!!!!!
Tomorrow I am doing a Workshop for the lovely Barbara and I am "doing"
the new Seasonal Catalogue.  I was away last week so I was burning the
midnight oil last night to get these 2 finished.  I am really pleased with the results 
and hope the lovely ladies of Eldwick are too!?!

The first is my version of the front cover of the catalogue using 
the stamp set and framelit dies, finished off with a squirt of the
Dazzling Delights Silver Sparkle!

Here's the arty farty angle!

The second one is made using the framelit dies and  Candlelight Christmas
 Speciality Designer Series Papers, finished off with a glittery brad.

That's all for now

Ye Olde Tea Shoppe!!!

Where did August go!!??!!
Well, I'm here now so happy Monday!

Here is the card I made for our Stampin' Up! Shoe Box Day last month.
The idea is that you make a card or any other craft item and
 prepare all the bits needed to make it, put them in a box and all
the boxes get passed round the table until everyone has made every card.
There were 9 on our table so I came away with 8 craft items.

Here's the arty farty angle.

Here is the inside.

That's all for now - I'll try and not leave it as long next time!!!

Happy Summer!!! 
Well let's hope it's here at last.

I'm sharing with you two cards I made last week.
This first one is for my friend Annie who sadly lost her mum and . . .

. . . the second one is for my "crafty" friend Alison who was a bit under the
weather after having a knee op that turned out to be more than was expected
so "get well NOW!!!" Alison!

Here is an arty farty view - just love the Blossom Punch from the Spring
Mini Catalogue - you've only got until the end of August if you want one!!!

Enjoy the sunshine

Hi - long time etc ..... !!!!!

Anyway I'm back and here is a card I made with  2 different
