Scary but Yummy!

Hello, very quick post, just nipping out to the shops. Today I took the boys to a Halloween Cupcake Decorating class, I thought it would be something different and they quite like helping out in the Kitchen.

Tah dah! Not as easy as it looks but I will keep practising.

And these belong to Nicholas, unfortunately one is no

Pennant Punch Goes Christmas!

Well, when I started this card I didn't really know where I was going with it. I decided on the papers or more like was determined to use the papers as I've had them that long
Anyway, made the card added the papers and then it was left for a month or two, then decided I would use my new punch on it - so that I did. It was then left for another few weeks and just by chance I made the poinsettia for another card but it didn't really go and hey presto! I have a finished

All in all it probably took about 2+ months to make, well they do say 'everything comes to those who wait?!'

I suppose the 'pennant punch' speaks for it's self but he poinsettia was made using the 'bird punch' and the papers are 'hostess' in poppy parade (now retired) but you can still buy very similar ones in the same colour.

Have a good week and I hope the rain stays off ;)

Scary Post!

Happy Sunday peeps, well it's not glorious sunshine but at least it's not raining (thankful for small mercies!).

This week over at Simply Stampin the theme is Halloween and there are just so many fabulous ideas flying around (most of them spooky!!! ha!) ok, maybe I'll just stick to the crafting ;) So this is my entry for the challenge, not my idea I'm afraid, I found it on one of the fabulous US blogs belonging to Connie & Mary and thought it was so cool and very easy to make.

Hope you're all having a good weekend or if like me a nice week off too (yay!!)

Birthday Gifts

Just grabbing 5 mins to show you the gifts I made for my friends birthday, it's now safe to post them (she regularly checks my blog). All the products are SU, although the paper is now retired, the wrapping paper is made from the packaging that comes with the SU orders (I just ironed it) I stamped all over it with the 'bella toile' stamp which is also retired now (sorry!) but there are lots more gorgeous background stamps that will do the same job and look just as good too ;)

And hiding inside are, two SU stamp sets, SU owl punch and a SU embossing folder not forgetting the Lindt choccies in the sour cream box :)

Off to try and make a card now, if I can be bothered ;)

It's Winter!!!

Well at least it is in Liverpool. OMG it's soooo cold and I really don't want to put the heating on right now, trying to hold out until at least the end of the month (shiver, shiver.) May be some crafting will take my mind of

Just got a few cards to show that I've made over the last few weeks but didn't get around to posting, for one reason or another.

I'm so pleased with myself that this card actually turned out, used my brayer and SU inks to make it, just love the little bits of dazzling diamonds on it.

This card has been CAS'd from the one below, just adore the original card but tried it in a different colour combo and I do believe I prefer the

This is the card my SU Mummy (Monica) sent me for my birthday, back in August.

Thanks for stopping by and I promise I will be back 'sooner' with some more cards.

Enjoy your weekend
