Card class prep.

I have a Thursday evening card class today. It's always a lovely evening, very friendly, relaxing with a nice dollop of chatter too. Oh, and we make three beautiful cards as well! I just thought I'd show you my desk at the moment, with all the packs, punches, stamps and inks ready to go. If your are eagle-eyed then you can spy a peek at the cards we will be making too. I won't reveal them all as I have another class next week, and I need to keep and air of mystery about myself!

Card Swap.

I'm a member of a card swap group, 10 of us make and send one card each month to another member of the group. There is normally a theme. This months theme was neutral. I'm not good with neutrals, I love a splash of colour, but I do enjoy having to work outside my comfort zone.
Here is this months card. I've made it using the  Stampin' Up Something Lacy background stamp and the itty bitty flower punch along with the postage stamp punch, also from Stampin' Up.

(Don't you think a splash of purple would just lift it?! ;))

Exciting times.

My good friend dawn Macfie has just done her show as a demonstrator on Create and Craft TV. She demoed the new Scrapberry's range of papers and embellishments. She was fantastic, totally natural and excellent and demonstrating her cards.
She kindly asked me to be on her design team to create sample cards and scrapbook layouts for the show. I was so pleased. I have three very different kits to work with. I thoroughly enjoy the task which did push me to work with papers that would not be my natural choice to use.
Here are some of the samples I made for the show.
