Mixed Craft Saturday
Good Morning Ladies,
Welcome to our Mixed Craft Saturday,
First up today we have :
Janet's stunning, boxed New Home Card, Janet it looks like you have used a
Fancy card fold for this card, I love how the middle section stands out
Fully displaying that beautiful die cut scene, of what looks like an
Alpine village, it looks as though you have stamped a scene behind too.
Such an amazing Keepsake, I love the box too, it makes a card more of a gift!
Thank you so much for sharing
Val's Fold back card, now I don't quite know how I missed this last Sunday but
I did and I always promise you that I will share what you make so
Here is Val's other challenge card, I love both the image and the sentiment,
Sometimes it's hard finding a funny sentiment that isn't either too rude or too
Stupid, I think this sentiment is perfect, you could give it to anyone.
Thanks so much Val for sending your card in, I hope that the weather has
Cooled down for you a little.
Karen, you haven't changed a bit, what an amazing scrapbook page!
Here is Karen's description:
A couple of years ago, at my little craft club, we had a challenge, and the choice was "school days". I made this scrapbook page with my very first school photo! It was made with a Serif kit. If you look closely at my eyes, they look a little strange because my little sister decided to colour "me" in, hence the "red scribble". My dad was a brilliant knitter, he taught me, made the cardigan I am wearing and so, the template is a little nod to him and his job as a draughtsman.
Other ladies made things like an embroidered book cover to hide "Lady Chatterley's Lover", another made a beautiful model of an old schoolroom, complete with outside toilets!
Karen, thank you so very much for sharing
Now onto Shopping :
Janet has bought some lovely new Crafters Companion 3D Embossing Folders
And dies for her Gemini, such a fantastic selection Janet I would love to see them
Die/cut and Embossed, looking forward to seeing what you make!
Thanks for sharing
Tracy has bought herself some of Sue's latest Christmas release die collection.
You have chosen some absolutely stunning dies Tracy, the background is really
pretty, I have one very similar from a year or two ago.
The snowflake is lovely too, I am really looking forward to seeing your
Christmas cards, I think it's 22 Weeks now, so we must start soon .
Thanks for sharing my lovely
Lynda has bought some lovely new goodies too, some fantastic Stampin'Up
Stamp sets, love the birds set, I have the Lace set and the Thank you stamp too,
They all stamp beautifully, you will live playing with them Lynda.
Those stunning paper pads are from the Works, they are amazing quality too.
Does this mean you won't be using your Northern Lights pad this week?
Last but not least is the beautiful 'tuck in' die, perfect for adding little bits
Of detail to your cards without taking over the whole background.
Thank you so much Lynda for sharing your shopping
What are you all up to this weekend???
Not much on the cards here, we had the most tremendous rain storms
here last night, the roads in town were totally flooded.
We popped into town to get some groceries for tea, we only usually
Shop in Aldi as they have most of what we need but we needed to pop into
Morrison's die for some Tiger Bread as we were having Fish Finger sandwiches
for tea, Paul decided to park there and said we would just pop over to Aldi,
Well to see the Heavens opened was an understatement, the rain was bouncing about
3 feet in the air, it was hammering it down, we waited in the Aldi entrance for about
10 minutes then Paul decides it's slowing down so we will 'Go for it'!! I was holding
Onto my wheelchair for dear life, I can honestly tell you that the rain was stinging
My skin it was that hard, it felt like being jetwashed with ice water, I've never squealed so much in public in my entire life, it took me a good two hours to warm
up, I had to blow dry my hair too. So I don't think we will bother with the allotment
today, we have heavy clay soil so it will just stick to your feet, I am hoping the rain will help close up some of the huge crevasses that have appeared because of the dry
Michele I hope your sale goes well today XX
Love and hugs to all
