Desk Set Box

Hope you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday!
I'm busy catching up on bits before we go on our camping trip later
in the week.

Here is a box I have made using a template I found one evening when
searching the t'internet!!
It's for a desk set.
This lovely box holds note cards and envelopes and
sits nicely on any desk.

I've used the colour combination Barely Banana, Pretty in Pink and Rich Razzelberry.
Very spring like!
I've added a hat pin and some beads from the pretties kit as my
decoration to keep it simple yet sophisticated (I hope!!).

And here is the box with it's co-ordinating note cards.
I'll show you those tomorrow.

Right I'm off to get some more jobs done.

Bravo Challenge!

Good Morning!
It's a bit grey and drizzly here, hope it brightens up
for half term next week!!

Here is a quick card I made last night after the boys had gone to bed.
I have have challenged myself to use a colour I have never used before...
Bravo Burgundy!!

I've teamed it with Bordering Blue and Soft Suede.
It doesn't look too bad!
A good colour combination for blokes cards.

The stamp set I have used is Pocket Silhouettes
and I've used my neglected Oval and Scalloped Oval punches
for the sentiment.
I've added a bit of detail using the paper piercer
and of course I just had to use some new yummy dotty ribbon
in Soft Suede!!

Yesterday was a busy day which included me going to school
to see Ben at his May Pole dancing.

Here he is skipping round the pole with his ribbon.
Aww bless him!

Right I have to get some housework done while I wait for a
large Stampin'Up parcel to arrive!

Rich Razzelberry, Soft Suede and Melon Mambo!

centre of the flowers to thread the ribbon through.
The flower is the stuck down with dimentionals.

Right I'm off to take the boys to school then it's off to work!

On Your Special Day

Hope you are enjoying the warmer weather.
This card is inspired by all the lovely blossom colours around.
Barely Banana, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip work so well
together and remind me of blossoms on trees with new, fresh
green leaves.

This is one of the cards that my lovely ladies will be making tomorrow evening
at my card class.

Here you can see that I have used the Vintage Vogue stamp set
along with the Special Blessings set.
The dove has been cut out and raised up slightly using dimentionals.
Oh and the ribbon adds a touch of class!!!

card to brighten your day.

Vintage Scrap

I though it was time for a change
so I have done a scrapbook page using some of the photos I
took when we went to York for the day on Bank Holiday Monday.
And you can't viist York without visiting the minster,
such an impressive building!

The perfect colour scheme to compliment the photos
is Kraft (soon to be known as Crumb Cake), Bashful Blue and Whisper White.
And the prefect stamp set is of course Vintage Vogue.
I've used stamped some of the flowers using the
"rock & roll" method and some Crystal Effects.

The torn paper down the side is the lovely Bride designer paper
with a strip of Bashful Blue paper added on top.

I really ought to make more time to scrap more family
photos (like most people we have loads!!) and I've really enjoyed doing this page.

Oh well, back to making cards!
