I was commissioned to make a silver anniversary card, so while I was doing that I cut out 2 lots of card stock so I could make use of the stamps and inks I had out.  This uses quite a few different stamps sets, some current some now unavailable.  

You may recognise the format from previous cards.  I find it so effective and simple to do, and with the range of colours that Stampin' Up! have it's easy to change the feel of a card by choosing a different palette.

-{I was Crafty Picked!}-

Had a lovely surprise last night, Tiffany Bauer of My Crafty World blog, left me a message on my blog to say she has picked one of my cards to feature in her "My Crafty Picks".  Every week she chooses 10 cards that have inspired her.

She choose the card below, you can see the post {here} and have a look at the other gorgeous cards featured.

-{Jubilee fun}-

A few weeks ago I was asked to do a Jubilee themed craft table at a Family even in my town.  A lovely lady called Hannah took these pictures which have recently been forwarded to me.

Here is me demoing how to make the rose below.  I found the tutorial on youtube {here}
I bought 3 ply paper napkins, one was enough to make one rose.  I love being able to create something so spectacular from something so ordinary. 

Below are some cupcake toppers and cake bunting.  I've been making these quite a bit recently for friends who have had parties.  Such a great way to decorate a party table.

-{squaring up}-

Apologies for not posting in such a long time!

Life has been a wee bit busy, and although I have been making cards and photographing them, I have not managed to get them on here till now.

I must tell you about the June offer Stampin' UP! has on their Designer Series Paper (that is all the packs priced £9.95 in the main and mini catalogue), if you buy three packs you get a fourth FREE!  A good time to stock up on pretty papers.

I really enjoyed making these, I used the Attic Boutique papers - which I love!
