A Brownie Guide Challenge

At our Brownie meeting we do like to have a session making some cards for the Marie Curie Campaign so here are a few I made to give my brownies some ideas - although they always seem to be able to come up with plenty of their own!!

Egyptian Party Weekend

Well it's been celebrations all the way this weekend. On Saturday I celebrated been able to see my craft table as I'd had a manic tidy away so that I could see my way to playing with some yummy stash destined to reach our craft shops soon. Followed by an infamous family Burns Supper. A tradition which has been upheld in our family for many a year. In pride of place sits Geordie - a steiff bear wearing my Grandad's family Gunn tartan. Every year we welcome new guests to the table and this year a grand time was had by all. The festivities continued on Sunday with a birthday party.
I do have some photos to upload but need to retrive my camera from a relative's house

The Artful Cat

Cat - a small, soft-furred,four legged domesticated animal who, rightly or wrongly, believes in exercising superiority.

Today's crafting challenge has been - who will dominate the craft table. Obviously the cat believes that if you leave the table or chair it becomes theirs to lounge all over. Then the cat thought it would play a game - let's paw and bat the paper on the floor and watch my owner pick it up. I've given in, raised a white flag and resigned myself to watching Eragon with my son and having a glass of wine!!

BoBunny Bits and Bobs

Whoa what a week - 3 classes and a BoBunny demo. Thanks to a group of ladies who would call themselves 'The Card Making Virgins' I was set the challenge of showing them how templates work. So they selected making an elegant slipper from the toe tapper templates, and I introduced them to some of the BoBunny double sided card range including Beau Jardin, Splendor, and My Darling. They were delighted with their cards.

I also must confess that I am a bit of a magpie for craft products with wow packaging and BoBunny have sets of co-ordinated tins with brads, flowers and scrummy buttons. The tins are shiny, useful and have magnetic bases - perfect for stacking more of those bits and bobs.
Any way will leave you with a selection of cards made using some of the products from inside the tins!!

Wishing you a Happy Crafting Week.

More Harlequin Rose

I have been like a child in a toy shop wanting everything out to play with at the same time. I'm so glad we (my husband and I) made an effort to tidy the house for Christmas! Nevermind I did say to myself that the craft stash cupboard needed a sort out.Anyway let me introduce you to more Harlequin Rose - she's a FABULOUS plate of stamps for every hungry stamper out there. She works in any colour theme - black and white is SO classy, chocolate and teal so scrummy and a colour way I never really use shimmering pink and black.

And then we have hues of lilacs, greens and silvers - having looked at this colour combo I can see a new flower boarder in the garden this summer

Wishing you all a happy new year filled with creativity to do those things you love.
