These are my lovely boys Samuel (right) who is now 5yrs and Ben (left) who is 3yrs. This was taken at Thomas Land at Drayton Manor Park in September. The boys, both being mad Thomas fans had a ball, riding on all the characters from their favourite stories.
I now tag Elaine, Julie, Jeannette and Siobhan.

So don't forget to check back later.

The only thing I added to the card that wasn't in the kit is the glitter on the bees wings.
Now unlike me I left this til the last minute. I made most of the card yesterday and added the finishing touches today!!!!! But I don't think I've done too bad, so maybe I work better under pressure.
I'm looking forward to the next Jems Challenge!
Sorry for such a short post, but I'll be back later this evening with another card from the Jems Challenge, my SU family.
See you later!

I added a gem for a bit of extra sparkle and used my happy mothers day stamp from the occasional greetings set.
I used the Fresh Cut background stamp again for this card and stamped it using Barely Banana. The torn paper and card stock are both Bashful Blue and I added some Very Vanilla ribbon and some gems to liven it up a bit.
Don't forget that if you place your pre-order from the mini catalogue with me before he end of March I'll enter you into a prize draw to win a limited edition stamp set.

Thank you Sarah B!!
The problem I have is who to pass it on to as she has already given it to most of the fab people I would!
Anyway, today is Samuel's 5th birthday, so happy birthday little man! I am busy preparing for his birthday tea and Jonathan's return from his retreat. Hopefully I'll be back later with a card and maybe and Easter treat!!

Samuel's birthday party was a success! So I have spent the morning making these mini 3x3 thank you cards for all his friends.
I finally had chance to get my new Oval All stamp set and oval punches (from the new mini catalogue) out and have a play! I stamped the thank you in Certainly Celery and layered it onto a scallop of Apricot Appeal.
And of course cat's love to chase butterflies, so I just had to add this cute cat from the All in the Family stamp set. He just had to be coloured in using Bashful Blue, Samuel's favourite colour!!

I'm hoping to have a play over the weekend, but as we have Samuel's birthday party I'm not sure how much time I shall have.
I am now taking pre-orders from the new mini catalogue, so why not grab a cuppa and click on the picture on my side bar and have a look at the catalogue. Anyone who places a pre-order before 31st March will be entered into a prize draw for a free stamp set! Just email your order to email@example.com

And last but not least here is a picture of Samuel's birthday cake!

So until then I have another card. This is another anniversary card using one of my sale-a-bration sets which is perfect for spring.
The colours I used are Rose Red, Old Olive and So Saffron, which I have to say work quite well. I added some Very Vanilla ribbon to pretty it up abit.
All of the items I used are from Stampin'Up, so if you want to get your hands on them you can place your order with me.
So hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with some lovely new items to show you.

I have put a link in my side bar, just click on the picture and it will take you to the new catalogue!
You have plenty of time to drool over all the lovely new stamp sets and accessories and plenty of time to book your workshop with me, so that you and all your friends can play with some of these lovely new goodies!!!
You can't place an order from the mini until 1st April, so plenty of time to save some pennies for those must have items!!
Hopefully in about 2 weeks time I should have some new samples to show you that I will have made with some items from the mini.
I'll also be organising another card class too, so keep checking back for more info.
