Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well. This month I have tried to keep supplies to a minimum as my craft room looks like a bomb has gone off in it & I could not find too much to play with .
My cards all use 2 flower stamps sets & matching punches but if you would like to make them using something else i.e. hearts or footballs etc. please do feel free to bring your own along
So here goes with the 3 cards I came up with
Card 1 -Flower Power take one
Card 2 – Flower Power Take 2
Card 3 – Flower Power Take 3
If we have time I have a 4th card in reserve using the same supplies you will just need extra white card, vellum & white embossing powder.

Before I show you the cards I just wanted to tell you a couple of things
- Firstly I will be bringing the RIBBON SHARE along to both meetings so if you want to take part don’t forgot to bring your pennies. All those who do take part will be put in a draw to have the chance to win a FREE PRIZE
- Secondly Hethersett’s meeting will be in the upstairs room so please use the side door this month
Card 1 – Well met by Moonlight (Sylvia’s name for it –she’s learning at last Ha-ha!!!)
Card 2 – On the ball
Card 3 – Easter Blooms -You can change greeting to another one

Hi everyone here we are again. I hope you have all avoided the wind & rain we have been having recently but it is a good excuse to stay indoors & craft
This month we are going to concentrate on PUNCHES.
We all have punches in our kit & we love them to punch out our sentiments but they can do soooo much more & I hope by the end of this weekend you will be inspired to think differently about them.
So here goes with this month’s samples
Card 1 & 2 – Two for the price of one
Card 3 – One for the Boys
Card 4 – Roaring Birthday
Card 5 – Two Famous Mice
Card 6 – Simple Flower
I will try to dig out all my other Punch themed cards to show you so if you want to bring lots of spare card you can then create your own examples at home.

Firstly a very Happy New Year to all my lovely ladies, I do hope this year will be a very good one for you all.
As you can see this year has not been such a great start for this blog. I spent the last few days trying to get this post to upload & if by magic this morning it finally decided to oblige me & hopefully now you can all see the cards we are planning to do.
So here goes with the first cards of 2014
Card 1 – A Bit of Stamping & Tearing
This card was inspired by one I saw at the recent Stampin Up convention but as I do not know the original creator of the card I cannot give them the credit they deserve, if I do find this out I will add their name here.
C6 blue card + extra scrap
Brown card – cut to 14.3x10cm
White card – cut to 13.8x9.5cm
Extra white card
Inks to match card colours
3 coordinating stamps – mine are from SU’s The Open Sea set but any theme would work
Brown string or white string which I will show you how to colour
Water reservoir brush
Card 2 – It’s all about the Swing
This card I admit to copying totally from the Mollie Blooms Birthday Parade kit but I thought it would be a fun card to make BUT be warned you will need to follow the instructions exactly to make it work
Inside of card
Supplies needed PLEASE NOTE MEASUREMENTS IN INCHES
2 sheets card cut to 11” x 5 1/2” – mine was blue
3 coordinating patterned papers
