November 2014 cards

Hi everyone hope you are all keeping well & that I have not shocked you too much by having this post up more than a couple of days before club dates & before Sylvia's emails ;-).

I have even shocked myself given the busy month I have had again. Since last seeing you I have been to London twice to complete my Chemotherapy course at the Royal Marsden Hospital ( only a 2000 word essay to write now :-( ) & I have been on our annual trip to Alton Towers for Scarefest so I thought you all might like to see a couple of photos of us all in our Halloween outfits.

Amy & her friend Maria

My Halloween outfit & scary makeup 


Watch out Girls!!!

Now on to more serious business .........

This month I was asked to do more "grown up" Christmas cards so I hope I have succeeded in fulfilling this request.

The first card has been designed by Margaret from the Hethersett club so will only be available at the Hethersett meeting only

Card 1 - Elegant Script designed by Margaret Hillman


Card 2 - Poinsettia Script 


Card 3 - Poinsettia Take 2

 
Card 4 - Elegant Trees


Hopefully you will all get the email soon with the card requirements, any queries just give me a call x

September 2014 cards

Hi everyone hope you are all well. My month has started off as busy as usual, we celebrated "Mini Me's" AKA Amy's 13th birthday on Thursday.  Can you believe she is a teenager now, I'm sure many of you remember her attending club with me when she was only 3 or 4 years old & all she was interested in was what biscuits we had & when she could go out & play on the swings at the old Bawburgh hall.......My has she grown up since those days.

Well enough about my family lets get on with the cards

Card 1 - Sweet Sugar Candy by Jeanette - this card is for Hethersett only

 



Card 2 - Christmas through the looking glass by Sylvia



Card 3 -  Ho Ho Ho by Sharon



Card 4 - Quarter Fold Card by Sharon

 

You all like the cards this month xxx

August's cards

Hi everyone it seems like ages since we last all met up & I am so looking forward to seeing you all again & finding what you have all been up to. Unfortunately Sylvia will be unable to attend on Sunday as she is still recovering from her recent op but she hopes to make it back really soon.

As you may remember due to unforeseen circumstances we had to cancel our traditional Christmas in July meeting,  we have therefore decided to have Christmas in August instead :-), so you know what that means........it's time to dust off those Christmas papers & stamps, grab all your sparkly glitters & put on some Christmas songs as we begin the countdown to our busiest card making time of the year.

So here goes with the first Christmas offerings of the year......

Card 1 -Rolled Up Tree


This card uses patterned paper which is rolled up & cut to make a different sort of Christmas tree. I've used traditional colours but I think pinks/purples would look just as good.

Card 2- Xmas Building Block card

This card involves quite a bit of scoring & cutting but I have made a guide for you all to help you along the way. Again I've chosen traditional colours but feel free to change the colour scheme to your personal taste. I will bring the stamp I've used but if you have your own please bring that along with you.

Card 3- Xmas Ribbons

Hi ladies, I am so sorry to say but Christmas in July is going to have be cancelled.

 As you know I was unavailable for most of July but now Sylvia has just heard the operation she has been waiting for, has been scheduled for when our July meeting !!!

We will therefore have to have Christmas in August now but please watch the blog as we may have to change the date depending on how Sylvia is doing postop. 

Take care & see you all in August xxx

May 2014 cards

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 Winking smile.

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

January 2014 Cards

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.
