Fresh and Fun!

My blogging buddy Jilli, recently celebrated her birthday and is holding a birthday blog candy challenge. The challenge is to make a card entitled "Fresh and Fun" so this is my contribution!

I knew which stamp set I wanted to use as soon as I saw the challenge.....Sassy Suzie from Stampin Up, which I've recently acquired, so I thought that was the "fun" bit and I love this patterened paper from Saffrasslass which I think could qualify for the "fresh" part. I've coloured Susie with Prismas and Sansodor and used Marvy for her make-up. Cardstock is from Bazzill with the turqoise/teal panel run through my Cuttlebug with the Spots and Dots embossing folder. Brads and ribbon are from my stash and the slits for the ribbon have been made with a SU punch.

I've got Sam off school today as the Teachers at the Infants are taking a "day of action", however, the Teachers at the Junior School voted against it so Lewis still has to go to school! Don't think me and Sam will be going far today as it's pouring with rain so hopefully, will be able to get some crafting done today. BTW, guess what? loo is working again!!! The plumber turned up unexpectedly yesterday evening with the part and it worked! Twelve days without a flush and lugging buckets of water about was long enough I can tell you!!

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...

...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
