Sketch Saturday

After seeing the sketch on this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge, I just had to have a go, although I think I have done it around the wrong way!! I couldn't wait to start using my new stamps from Stampin' Up, and these cards are what I came up with. I've started to make 2 of each card now - so that when I use one, I still have one to keep! (How sad am I!!?)
Stampers 5 Club...
I'm making a last ditch attempt to keep my demonstrator status... so here goes... If you would like to join my Stampers 5 club, I am hoping to get 5 people to each spend £30 (plus postage) per month for 5 months, and then in return for this commitment, you will each take in turns to one month receive the hostess gift of a free stamp set plus £15 of free Stampin' Up items.
If you'd like to join this, please email me - (put Stampin' Up in the title line). If I don't get enough people interested then I'll just give it up!! Aaaah! so please take pity on me!!!

Forever Friends

Here's a treat bag that I've made for the Forever Friends challenge. This week is "something for a sweet", so I've used some shrinkplastic to make the tag on this gift bag. Also, here's a card made using a new stamp set that I just love! It's called Trendy Trees, from Stampin Up.

Basic Grey challenge - paper piecing

After taking a look at this weeks challenge over on BasicGrey Challenges, I looked at the DT cards, thinking - they've not done any paper piercing, I was a bit confused, until I went back to the title and saw that it said paper "piecing" not piercing!! I had a chuckle to myself, then went off to my craft room. After having a good sort out, came up with this card. I really enjoyed making it - what a great technique, I'm definitely going to have to try this again!!!
