I am so sad..........

My Cuttlebug has gone to Cuttlebug heaven........

This is one tool I use frequently, in fact every day he gets used to make a card with. I bought Colin home when they first came to our shores.

Many Thanks for reading this

I am on the home page of UK Scrappers, for the card that I made for my Son's Girlfriend!

I have never had anything like this before. Thanks Jane for pointing this out to me.

On Saturday, I went to my friends house for a good old crafting session, we were thin on the ground this month as Margaret is still away, Margaret 2 was baby sitting and Jane was poorly.

It was very quiet without them and I really missed them all.

Though I did have more space to craft on LOL!!!! ( I am a bit of a messy crafter)

I am always dragging loads of bags and wheelie bags when we go to our craft sessions, I decided to set myself a challenge and only take scraps of card and a few white card blanks,a few stamp sets and my Ribbon bag (I have a ribbon fetish and have two! Yes that's right two large e-z pulls full of bundled ribbon)
Not to mention the spools of ribbon LOL!!!!

I made 3 and a half cards with my scraps, I finished one when I got home and made another one.

Feeling proud, Yep I sure am.

It feels good to use those scraps of mine. I will post pictures soon.

Happy Stampin'

HHHMMM time flies

Wow it has been ages since I last blogged, how did that happen I hear you ask? Well life and work happened.

I have been busy in my *normal Job* But I also work for my Local craft shop demonstrating and leading workshops for them. I also have been traveling the country demonstrating at craft shows as well, So I have been a busy girl!

Last week my DS's Gf lost her Dad to cancer, such a horrible disease, as some of you may know I lost my Dad last year to this disgusting and vile disease. My son asked me if I could make a card for him, to give to his GF, I of course said yes.

The style of the card is called an Easel card.

The sentiment is computer generated! and the Damask Stamp is by Stampin Up.

I used Mellow Moss and Pale plum as the main colours and there is a bit of Very Vanilla.
The ribbon is one I picked up at the Haberdashers in Whitstable and the punch is a Martha Stewart, I also used the Large Square Scallop and the Large Plain Sqare Nesties and I also used my Cuttlebug to create the embossing on the background using the Textile Folder.

Please let me know what you think of them.
