Some new home cards to show you today. These are easy to do with paper piecing or with a simple stamp. They make an elegant card.

How do you keep track?

My blog isn't that old and I'm already losing track of what photos I've posted already! How do you remember which ones you have posted? Any hints & tips are graetfully received!

Today I have a set of wedding stationary to show you. These are relatively simple with lots of heat embossing & gold cardstock. The stamps are Stampin up - Baroque Motifs I think.

My craft space is a right tip as I'm in the depths of christmas crafts. It's a fine balance between having the right number of christmas cards to sell and having too many. I've found that people don't really want to purchase hand crafted cards as they are expensive in relation to a pack of 10 cheap christmas cards. But, there is still a market for the 'specials' to immediate family etc. On the flip side, if I have any left over that saves me buying some or making more!

Where did the time go?

Time is running so fast these days! I've been busy with craft clubs, Centenary Parades for Guides, family visiting, craft fairs, school cycle training, Brownies, Rainbows ...... Just the usual for me! LOL Here's another couple of cards & 3d items.
These 3 (I've no idea why I've photographed them together!) are simple cards for the stall. The middle one is a sugar nellie stamp and the others are stampin up with cuttlebug embossing on each. Maybe that was my reason for the group - they all use the cuttlebug!
Another cuttlebug card with stampin up stamps.

These are post it note pads covered and trimmed with ribbon, punched shapes & fabric flowers!
I promise not to leave it so long before I update again!!

The Mural is Finished!

Yippee! It's done. I'm pleased with it, and the time taken. More importantly, the family are very please with it. Here's a few photos of it. If anyone in the Ayrshire area and wants a mural painted - just give me a shout!!

Pack Holiday was amazing. We had so much fun even though the weather was rotten. The leaders all worked together well - especially as it was our first district one. Now we just would like good weather for the parade through Ayr on Saturday to celebrate the beginning of Girlguiding's centenary year!
