December Cards

So sorry for not having posted these samples earlier but as Sylvia explained I have been rather busy being Santa's little helper at Amy's school as well as attending 4 Nativity plays !!!!!! I'll explain more on Sunday.

As requested we have no Christmas cards this month. Not that you need them as I'm sure you all have now finished making all the cards you need.........

As mentioned in the email the first 2 cards came from a challenge by Cathy to use all the hundreds of skeleton leaves she had in her stash, I've tried to do something different with them & I'll bring along some more samples I've made up to inspire you all.

Don't worry if you have no skeleton leaves in your possession as Cathy has kindly said she does not mind people using a big Thanks to Cathy for that.

So here goes with the samples, as always please feel free to change your colour schemes to the ones you prefer.

Card 1 - Background Magic


Card 2 - Butterfly Magic


Card 3 - Cupcake & Banners

Card 4 - Unisex Card

October Cards

Well here I'm again having survived one very tiring birthday outing and sleepover or should that be "chatover".

Hope you all had a good time without me last month although I hear there were quite a few people not feeling so well, especially Sylvia who soldiered on regardless. Thanks to everyone who gave her a helping hand last month, you really are the best group of ladies I know.

So here goes with this months card samples:

Card 1 - Square Quarters

This is a different folded card that gives you 4 quarters on the card front to decorate, mine is an autumnal version but I also have a Christmas version to show you as well.

Card 2 - Bauble peel off challenge

This card is so called because Sylvia gave me a load of Christmas peel offs to try and do something with, so this is what I came up with.

Card 3 - Acetate Overlay

This card has an acetate overlay that we are going to stamp on.

Card 3 - Baby time

This card is just so cute & I'm really looking forward to making this one.

May's Cards.

Hi everyone this months cards are all about the men in our life. I don't know about you but I struggle to make cards for my husband & I know several of you have hubbies like mine who are not footie fans. So I've stayed away from sports cards & tried to do something a bit different. Hope you like them.

Card 1 - Dad's Boxers

Card 2 - Sail Away

Card 3 - I'm Busy

Warning this one is a bit saucy & if any of you would prefer not to do this one then let me know & I've got a reserve card for you but you will need to email me so I can let you know what to bring instead but hopefully you will all see the funny side of the card

Card 4 - You Wish

April's card

Hi everyone hope you all had a better Easter than myself.

We as a family had a lovely time in Dorset but on our return we had to have our elderly cat put to sleep as she suddenly developed a heart condition & given that she was over 20 years old there was little the vet could do for her. We are now coming to terms with her not being around but I especially miss her at it was my lap she nearly always choose to sit on, so I now have to have a blanket over my legs in the evening to keep them warm.

Now back to happier things here are this months cards for each group. Hopefully by next month both groups will be doing similar projects which will certainly help me not to get so confused.

Please can I also remind those of you who have booked up for the all day workshop you will need to bring that payment with you or you may loose your place - cash or cheques will be fine.

Aylsham's cards are as follows:

Card 1 - Sylvia's Chic Birthday

Card 2 - Vellum overlay

Card 3 - Cathi's Hat card
Here are 4 different colourways to do this fun card

Card 4 - Ollie the Owl

March Cards

Sorry ladies if you were all expecting this months cards to be on the blog by now but I seem to have run into a bit of a problem.

I seem to have mislaid my camera somewhere & this therefore makes it impossible for me to take pictures of the cards & then upload them to this blog.

Both members of my family also own digital cameras but hubbies one seems to be broken & Amy does not appear to trust her Mummy with her one & has therefore hidden it saying she will only allow me to use it in her presence so she can teach me the correct usage of it & also she does not want me losing her one too!!!!

I'm hoping I may be able to borrow one tomorrow but as I'm now about to do 2 long days (07.00am - 7.30 pm) at work I cannot realistically seeing me being able to get the cards uploaded until Weds pm at the earliest.

Sorry again & hopefully normal service will resume shortly.
