This is a card I made yesterday as an easel style fold, this style seems to be quite popular at the moment. The base card is 8x8 and the colour scheme is pinks and browns as if you haven't already guessed, well it's more like what I would describe as marshmallow colours. The image is a Whiff of Joy stamp and I used my nesties for the layers, the text stamp was a freebie on a mag sometime last year I think. Now I'm off to try and make some more in different colours, well that would be the plan :)

Well what do you Know??? here is a pic of my first scrapbook page that I was shall we just say prompted to make at work on Saturday by my Brilliant at scrap booking Boss for a class that will be coming in February. Heather gave me the layout and I chose the colours that complimented the photo (pale greens, lilacs, white and I added in the silver)
By the way the photo is not mine it belongs to Heather, it is her daughter with her OH, hope she likes it! The class is called Love & Romance to fit in with Valentines Day, pop over to the shop blog and take a look at the Page Heather made.

Hello Blog land, at last I was able to get back to work last week and surprisingly the ladies on the Thursday class all made it in to the shop, so glad were they to be back to crafting once more, aren't we all I hear you cry!
This is a card I made whilst at work on Saturday and it is on the class list in the near future, I took my inspiration from a card shown in this months Craft Stamper mag, using the Distress ink pads, Archival black and an Impress ink pad, lace trim on the edges of the card and the tag, bo bunny 12 x 12 background paper and a set of new stamps that I can't for the life of me remember so I will add this in later when I get home from work, almost forgot to mention that I made the frame using the mandala board.

Went out to leave some food for the dozens of little birdies that have been buzzing about, they all left rather quickly except for this little chap who sat in the tree and watched my every move. I think he wanted to be first in the que, not daft is he, although he did turn his back on me when I took his photo.

Good morning snowy GB. Here are a couple of photo's I took from my son's bedroom window
yesterday around 7.45am whilst it was still snowing. Picture perfect for a winters day!
But wait a mo.... how would we all get to work? Arrrrhh!. Problem! Anyone got a shovel?

This is a card I made on Wednesday 23rd December it was the last day at work before
the Xmas holidays.
I just wanted to play with something that wasn't Christmas...

This is the same card would you believe?
It looks a totally different colour, just taken the picture at a different angle

Here is just one of the cards sent to me by Janet & Roy, Janet made this card using a Parchment Craft pattern and it is beautiful, thank you so much and that goes for everyone :) xx.

Well what do you know? just like the snow it's been and gone, Christmas I mean and here is the lovely card that was made for me by my boss (& friend) Heather.

I received lots of lovely Xmas cards from our wonderful ladies who frequent the shop and the classes, I'm looking forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
