Too Much a Good Thing

Just wanted to show you the swap I made for the quarterly Demonstrator Meeting I went to on the weekend. I used the in colours for this year and the new tart and tangy stampset from the new Spring Mini thats out from the 1st of August. I had so much fun making this swap!! It is the first Swap Ive been involved in and I received some really lovely ones in return. When I charge the battery in my camera I will take a photo of them all and post the pics on here so you can have a squizzy aswell.

On another note Im thinking of organising a Ribbon Club soon so I will post those details on here aswell shortly.

This is a little 6x6 scrapbooking page I did for a workshop a couple of months ago I really love this stamp set (Scribble This) its one of my favorites. The colors I used were bravo burgundy, always artichoke, so saffron and very vanilla I also used versamark ink aswell.

I cant wait for Saturday we are having a demo get together and Ive made my first swaps Im so excited I will post my swap on here next week...

Hello all

I have been a bit absent lately I apologise.
Here is a card I helped a friend make for Mothers Day recently.
I used the heartfelt thanks & ittybitty background stampsets I also used the bold brights color family for the cardstock and finished it up with a piece of certainly celery ribbon.
I just love using the markers for that more alive look...
On another note I had my dear sister Lizz and her boyfrend Dave around for dinner last night which was great. They are such a cute couple...
Well I will try and post a different card, page or alterable once a week.
