DoCrafts Project Design Team July Hop

And the theme this time is

Create A Projebt With An Interactive Element

I had too think long and hard about this one but I finally decided on a three tier card. Made in three layers it opens as a concertina to make a cake stack or stack of presents.

Here's the main part of the card, all folded and ready to post.

Here is tier two

And tier three

I added the tiny little flowers to finish off.

If you like this card and want to see some more interactive card ideas then start the blog hop and follow the links below.

Sometimes you just get a photo that stands out and makes you think wow. That's what happened when I saw this photo of my granddaughter taken on holiday this year. She looks so much like her mummy.

Here is the layout I made for last nights class

and some of the detail.
The Live, Love, Laugh stamp is one of the free stamps from the Quick Cards Magazine this month.

The circles were made using the sewing circle stamps by Prima and the hearts were hand drawn.

I'm working on loads of projects for Docrafts at present plus making loads of Christmas cards for classes beginning in September. 

Have a great day xx

Bridal Shower

I've been a bit busy over the weekend preparing for and attending my nieces Bridal Shower. My sister did most of the crafty makes but it was my job to make the food.

It was a fantastic afternoon with games and pink lemonade and loads of time to chat and relax. Here are a few photos.

All of the Bridal Shower Decorations were made by Karen. If you would like more information about these items please contact and I will pass your details on.

I had a wonderful time and now I can't wait until the big day. Love my family xxx

In The Country Birthday Card

I am a great fan of wildlife but when it comes to stamps I find it really hard to use cutesy animals. Imagine my delight when I found this amazing lifelike stamp set illustrated by Pollyanna Pickering.

It was so easy to use with all of the shading already done for you.

Here is the card I made for class last Wednesday

And some of the detail

I've als got a squirrel and a owl stamps set still to use. Think I'll try it on a scrapbook page. Enjoy your Saturday xx
