Workshop card 29th October 2015

Been neglecting the blog for the last few days, reason is because I am off on my holibobs on Friday and trying to get everything sorted and ready so not much card making has been done.

 However I have still found time to go to my craft workshop and Clair came up trumps again with this lovely christmas card made using 'Flurry of Wishes' stamp set from Stampin Up. The card in a circular one using Little Be's Circular dies. I love the colours in this one.

Again a stamp set that will go on my wish list.

Last of my 2015 Florida Photos

As it's half term, I got to spend the day with Leon and we went off to Drusillas for the afternoon. I took him for a haircut this morning and he was a very good boy as he always is :-). Then off to Drusillas and meet up with his friend and his mum. 

Getting excited now as only 9 more sleeps until my holiday and I can't wait, so I thought I had better finish the scrap pages for last years holiday so here they are. Now that I have finished them I need to print them out and put them in an album.

We get to spend Thanksgiving over in the States every year and last year we spent it with some American friends and their family. We had a fun time and looking forward to spending it with them this year as well. We were thinking of what we could take them this year that is English so we have decided to take them over some Pimms and to make them some mince pies. 

Now I have finished last years photos I only need to do the previous 8 years and this years ones when I have taken them!!!! Busy time ahead I think.

Carpet Cleaning

Today I have been doing a bit of carpet cleaning. It's one of those jobs that I kept putting off only because I normally hire out the 'Rug Doctor' and the local shop I get it from has closed so I need to go further a field to get it. Any how I saw an advert for a Vax machine that was on sale so decided to buy it. I got round to using it today and I was very pleased with it and the benefit is that I can do it more regularly.

The card I have to show you is one I made for my niece. The image is a decoupage sheet from The House of Zanda. Love these images. You don't need much for the card as the image does it all. The greeting was stamped straight onto the card. Then added a few gems.

Back to normal

Well back to normality today after all the goings on last week :-). Not sure if I like it not though...but at least I have my holiday to look forward to.. 11 more sleeps!!!

I do have a card to show you today. This is one that we made at the last Saltdean Workshop. I loved making this card and although the stamps and dies used are now retired I hope to be able to get hold of a set when I go to the States. :-) Not sure what the embossing folder is (I forgot ) but it was very pretty. Definitely be making this one again.

Busy week

This week has been a very busy week, my son got married on Monday (pictures will follow). A lovely day was had by all. Then they went away for a few days so we had my grandson for the week until Friday. I had to do the school run which was a novel experience for me :-). 

I haven't had much time to make any cards but I do have some that I made earlier.

These are the cards that I made a couple of weeks ago at my Tuesday Craft Workshop. All cards have been made with Stampin Up products. Great selection of cards and very simple to make.

The first 2 pages are from Kennedy Space Center. If you ever get the chance then you really need to visit it.

This page is showing that men never grow up. All pretending to be alligator hunters :-)

Second posting of the day you lucky people... Yesterday was the 30th wedding anniversary of a very good friend of mine. Here is the card that I made for her and her husband. The hearts are from Nellie Snellen and the greeting is computer generated. 

The card blank was embossed using the 'tied together' embossing folder then loads of pearls were stuck on it/Some ribbon and flowers were used to finish it off.
