Are you reasonably local to me (HYDE, STOCKPORT OR MANCHESTER) and would like to hold a Stampin' Up! party in your home? These are normally great fun and nobody is pressured into buying anything. However, I am not held responsible for you falling in love with the products and wanting them all :-) and with the FREE Back ground stamps in the month of June you may be tempted.

I don't even know any one who is 21 yet but I had to use the key and well, you understand what it's like to be an addict don't you? lol I'm getting very creative I couldn't find a flower to match so I made one out of ribbon (I think this is because one of the previous challenges you had to make your own flower). You can see why challenges are good to enter, they give you good ideas that you can use in other projects too! better stop waffling.....
And the items used : hold your breath there's a few lol the wonderful K&Co 'key', & 'design papers', from journey range (so yummy and lots of other matching things, which I bought oopps!) Papermania brads, Dove craft 'charm brad', Making Memories letters, American craft 'numbers (from the thickers range which I coloured to match)' and finally the ribbon that was all ready in my over flowing stash... I so need a bigger room (notice I will not suggest buying less stash) lol. As always I'd love to hear your comments and why not become a follower and never miss a post! Love Dawn xx

Any way CARDS I love doing this I really love getting an order and them trusting me to create something wonderful that they will love, (the sentiments have to be put on yet but as this is an order I thought I would leave them off for the blog.)This is also and entry for Stampinchic All to do with hand made flowers well there is some on the card above (love this stamp set I have to say) so it's the top card that is the entry details of what was used below.
Never mind, Any way, I am getting much more confident with taking the photos for the cards now, thought I may need a new fancy camera turns out I just need to get to grips with the manual of the camera I have lol, it's a Samsung L830 and cost about £60-£80 not breaking a hole in the bank. The ones recommended by scrapbookers are SLR Olympus DD50 (I think don't quote me) they are £500+ I'm not a serious photographer although I would like to get better maybe in the future I will.
Items Used: well the Easter bunny card PP are DCWV spring stack and the bunny and daffodils I have had over a year bought off e-bay (forgot I had them to be honest) but I think perfect for this card. Rub on's MM Card stock Core'dinations gems from stash. The top card is made with free papers from a magazine (never throw anything away) normally I wouldn't use papers from mags but these were of such a good quality (not the awful shiny stuff) the paper was of a good weight and double sided bought Spring last year, the daffodils dicuts are from Tesco, stamped flowers Claire Curd (papermania) coloured with whispers watercolour pens.
I love Easter it's my favorite time of year (religious wise) better than Christmas! it's Spring the Sky's are turning blue the birds are all frisky lol and the grass is growing all that new growth and hope given and the saviours atonement for us all that we may yet live with our Heavenly Father again, if we but repent and come un to him. I really love Easter and all that it represents. It's not all about bunny's and eggs (although if I don't get a chocy egg I will be very disappointed) lol as usual if you would like to become a follower so you never miss a posting, click on follower down the left hand side, and please feel free to leave comments I love seeing what you have written all you feed back is welcome.

Back to the cards, I didn't want to make just one card thought it would be nice to offer a choice. the top one is the example I will show (she may not like Elvis) so I made matching sentiments for all the other cards and put them in the packet this way he can choose and I can make it up for him while I'm there and not use five cards (well it is a specific card) and then the others can be sold when ever, the 50's is going to be big this year (that's my tip) (very fashion conscious lol not) I bought some vintage 50s dresses I love the old tea dress style and I see the 50s style is making a subtle come back in Tescos so I won't have to pay vintage prices either YAY!
This is just clip art off the computer I'm not that keen on this but I have to make for all taste when its a special order and let them choose (all part of the service) lol choice is key
