Sweet Machine Card

Well, i have had this stamp set for quiet a while and just not got round to working with it.
So was out with my daughter and picked up a bag of mixed sweets for my grandchildren, when we got back
i said to my daughter just let me take a couple of sweets out so i can make this card.
Did just that and and then sat and did this card, have not put any words to it as will let my grandchildren send it to a friend, so will await to see if i am putting a number or just wording.
I used SU Whisper White card stock on top of  SU So Saffron card stock, then i stamped the machine from SU stampset called something sweet. Then i stamped real red, pink passion, olive green, chocolate chip, so saffron sweets around the machine.

Craft Class

One lady that joined my class last week asked if i would hold a class weekly. I agreed to do this thinking that maybe i could attract others to come on any of these Wednesday's. Today the projects she made are pictured below. I used white SU cardstock and SU designer paper to make the bag, SU cardstock to make the card with the same SU designer paper for the cards that we made. The lady wanted all identical cards so i have only taken one photo of a card and, of course,the bag!!!!

A card made for a friend

Today i had big ideas of doing lots of jobs around my home. It all went wrong!!!!  Firstly I received a call from my youngest sister from Australia and that can usually wipes out at least a couple of hours.
While i was on the house phone my mobile rang and it was a friend that was in the area and was going to call in,to catch up, my phone call with my sister ended 5 mins before my mobile rang, and it was another friend, that i was attending a meeting with tonight. They were just making sure about what time we could meet before the meeting to iron out a few issues.
Then my friend came, during us catching up, i just happened to say my sewing machine was playing up so she had a look at it and played around while she did this i made her a card she likes orange and yellow so this is what i made.
The items used for this card are
 Only orange SU cardstock .
Only orange and Yoyo yellow SU write markers.
Striped orange and yellow ribbon
Whisper white  SU cardstock
SU Scallop circle  punch
1 3/4ins Circle punch
I stamped flowers on to the only orange cardstock in versamark

Tomoro i shall use some of SU new cardstock and ink.
Take care see Luv Paula

SU Bird Card

This is a tent card. I saw one on a blog but cannot remember whose
 so just to say this is not my own design.
I cut my purple cardstock 4 ins x 4 ins.
3ins x 3ins pink cardstock
4 ins x 2 1/2 ins purple
 I cut out a 2 1/4 ins  x 2 1/4 ins square hole from the middle of my 4 x 4 cardstock.
Then i cut out  a 2 1/4 ins  x 2 1/4 ins square out of the 3ins x 3 ins leaving a border of  3/4 ins x 3/4 ins.
Then i scored the 4ins x 2 1/2 ins i scored it at 1/2 ins  then 1 1/4 ins and then 2ins
Then i used the extra large two step bird  punches from SU, i put my bird on a little cord 
and hung it from the top of my card and i glued the leaf and stem to the back of the card.
Next i folded my score lines at both 1/2 ins score lines i added glue and stuck each end to  my card so now my card can only open 1 1/2 ins.
Then i stamped the face of the card with "Welcome"

Question Answered

I forgot to tell you that i did not buy any crafting goodies while i was in Manchester, but i think that was because i never saw a craft shop or believe me i would have,  for sure, would have bought something. And i did not feel so bad because earlier in the week i had place a SU order.
I did not have time to get withdrawal  symptoms because today i had a delivery from SU so that was great.
My order was for the new colours that SU have just introduced to the UK in May.
If you are interested in any of SU products please contact me so i can assist.

I'm Back!

I'm back from Manchester with my friend. My previous post said i was off to spoil myself.......well i did. We arrived in Manchester in the early afternoon then Jackie and I shopped till we dropped. The hotel was fab and so luxurious. We then went to see the show, "How now Mrs Brown Cow" I have never laughed so much in my life. The show was fantastic. \i recommend anybody who reads this to book and see.

After the show we returned to our hotel for a meal and then to bed. This morning we ate then shopped even more than the day before. What a lovely way to spend time with Jackie to celebrate her 60th birthday.

ps I spoiled little Joshua again but never mind he is just sooooooooooooooooooooooadorable.

Important Announcement

Last night we announced that No 38 Pam White was the winner of my Candy. It has been  brought to my attention that Pam did not have my Candy linked to her site, which is a requirement to be eligible to enter the draw. This renders the result invalid.
I have sent Pam a message to say that i am sorry but i will have to redraw the blog candy, because she did not link. She was absolutely fine about this and she told me that she is new to blogging and still has a lot to learn.
