Oh my days

Evening all,

Well with mother’s day just around the corner, I’d thought I had of started mother’s day card however I started last night. Luckily my Mum doesn't keep an eye on my blog so I can post pictures of the cards. So I’ve been waiting for a while to try this technique out, imp not 100% sure on what’s it called but I like it :-D!
Anyway the card is a single layer card and worked into with white gel pen and green marker. I thought it was missing something so I also added a bow and border, from this card I have discovered I don't like single layered cards; the more layers the better!!!!

Here’s how the card turned out, and I think you'll be seeing me use this stamp a lot:

That’s all for now, I’m going to get some crafting done tonight as I do have 12 mother’s day cards to make. Yay -.-

Its been a while dear friends...

Afternoon everyone, isn't it a lovely day!
Well where do I start? It’s been a busy few days. First Carol and Jan came:-D it has been so nice to get to know them and get crafting with them. It was so kind of them to bring me so many different bits and pieces over from the American Stampin' Up! So if you’re reading this THANK YOU!
Now here is a card I made on Saturday night when crafting with them after a long day at the NEC. It was established on the way to the NEC that I’m a Stampin' Up! Whore, in which I’m proud, also from meeting both Carol and Jan I cannot wait to become a demo for Stampin' Up! It is only 7 months... not that I’m counting.

I'll have to get back to you with all the supplies used as my Stampin’ Up! Catalogue is at Carol’s house so I’m not bringing it backwards and forwards all the time.
Oh before I forget, I got my Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up! This weekend and it’s so full of amazing products! Boy do I wish I was rich, not that it would last with the amount I like spending. I do recommend you take a look at Stampin' Up! Products as they are one of the best companies I’ve come across.

Anyway I thinks that’s me don for today, off to clean my room!

Mass Flowers Update

Hey all,
Apologies for it being a while since the last update but I’ve been doing coursework most of the time. Anyway to the point remember the oasis and flower arranging? Well Wednesday night I spent an extra 2 hours after school preparing the flowers for the mass Thursday. Heres what they ended up like:




After all that hard work they were appreciated by most; won’t say who didn’t like them *cough* The Priest *cough*. Oh well, I am aiming to do some more card making A.S.A.P however it looks like another busy week.
Hope you are all fine, Cya

Oh I'm so excited! I put my name forward to help display the flowers for the St. Patrick day mass at school, we still don't have a clue on what flowers and how we are going to buy them but i got excite at the opportunity. I came home that night and brought a few florist bits and it came today! Now i found this site and i must say it was much cheaper than i expected it to be however i cant wait to give it ago.
That's just i little selection of what i brought, now i havent ever tried flower arranging before so if anyone has any tips they would be appreachated! Anyway my dinner is done, i'll be sure to update you with pictures of what they turn out like :D

What a week!

Evening all! Boy has it been busy week, first week back at school and yet so many died lins to be meet. Stressed doesn't cover it. Anyway i tried to make something to post on here tuesday however din't have the time. Today i finally got the chance to do some crafting!
With Carol and Jane coming over towards the end of the month i wanted to give them a lttle something from myself to signify the friendship im sure will be made. Now i know Carol may be reading this so im not going to say what im giving, however i will show everyone how im giving it to them.
A had a how different idea to what i wanted to do in the first place however i didnt have enough Merina Mist after my Nans birthday cards. Instead i used Elegant Eggplant which is just as nice, don't you think? This is what i came up wit in the end:


Normally i find away of making projects like this really differicult, dont ask me how i just do. Today thought, i found it really simple. Now all i used was was a sheet of Elegant Eggplant, a bit of Baja Breeze and some vellum. Now i used a Sizzix die to do the box and it also cut out the shape in the lid. I used Razzle Dazzle to decorate the Baja Breeze and the sentiment is from Pocket Sillhouettes. I didnt plan on having ribbon on it however it wasnt staying shout  properly therefore i i used the ribbon to keep it closed.

Well thats that, hope you like it! Back soon!
