Money, money, money

I made this card for my hairdresser's son. I've used a tissue pack that I got from The Works. I split the tissues and used them to make a ramdon background and then stamped around the edge.
After all a boy can never have too much money, shame it's not real!

Don't forget

At our monthly glue and stick get together we made this really handy note hanger. If  you're anything like me I have bits of paper all over the place. Reminders stuck in my diary, on my fridge, near the teapot (always a good place considering how much tea I drink!) So this will be ideal to keep them all in one place that is if I can remember to clip them to the pegs or pop them into the front pouch

Little White Lies

Don't we all tell these at one time or another ?  Well mine was when I mentioned that I don't sew. What I really meant is I don't make anything creative or useful. I can sew on a button or take up a hem but nothing hand sewn and definitately not a quilt.  But have made these lovely felt brooches with the help of my sewing friend Gail. Now here's a girl who can really sew. Check out her blog for some really really inspirational sewing projects. Here's my humble efforts. I've made these to take to New Zealand for my sister in law and nieces.

Didn't you know I was off to New Zealand! Where have you been? In four weeks hubby and I will be jetting off for 8 weeks of rugby, sightseeing,rugby, visiting family, and even more rugby! This blog will be quite for a while but if you're interested I have set up a travel blog so you can follow our visit. It's not quite ready but I'll let you know when it is.

Step back in time

Here's a selection of vintage themed cards that I did in class a few weeks ago. I have used mainly Crafty Individuals stamps and their new printed tags. I've also used a LOTV stamp which I normally use with brighter colours and papers.

 This one is a Papermania stamp.
