Make and Take

I've just returned from a Make and Take morning presented by the lovely Jill of Jill Stamps Up where we were shown a selection of Stampin' Up products and used some of them to make this pretty card in Spring-like colours.  The background was stamped using a stamp set which is free at the moment if you spend £45 on SU products (not difficult!!) and other stamps, punches and so on were used to complete the card.  Thanks Jill for some great ideas and thanks to Anne for hosting the morning and providing us with coffee and scrummy cake.

Time Flies...

This saying is so true - where has this week gone??  It is almost a week since my last post here so today I'm sharing a wedding or anniversary card which I made recently using die cuts from Marianne  together with a stamped and punched sentiment from Stampin' Up - what did we do before there were so many lovely dies available??

Banners Again

I'm so pleased I got this set of banner dies because I can see they are going to be so versatile and this card uses them in a different orientation with the addition of a shape cut using Apothecary Accents dies and stamps from the Wetlands set - all from Stampin' Up.  Background paper has been in my stash for ages but it seemed right for this card.  We had glorious sunshine yesterday and the same again today so it seems as if the weather is actually taking a turn for the better.
