Stampin' Up Demo

It was the Tree Tops Hotel today for me - for a Stampin' Up demo by Dawn, Elaine and Kara. They put a lot of work in for the event and I so enjoyed seeing all their creations and techniques. Hope they have another one soon. First off we made a card with Elaine, then Kara shared some good techniques, third should have been a scrapbook page but I didn't have a photo for this so I made it into another card (still need to add a sentiment) and finally Dawn showed us how to make another card with a flower. All lovely projects

Here is a card I made last night using card and ribbon in the new colours from SU along with embellishments that Dawn had kindly given me earlier on.

It has taken me just under 2 hrs to photo and download these photos!!!! Better go get our evening meal on.

Graduation card

Here is my card for my niece who graduates in media studies on Friday and yes it is very basic.

Brother and my problem with TIME?

The weekend has passed and I had planned to spend some time with my inks, papers and computer but that was knocked on the head. I finally finished clearing out my brother's flat on Friday night so that just left me with some boxes to transport over to my sister in Ellon. On Saturday it was such a lovely day I took him along for the outing and after off-loading the boxes at Ellon we drove over by Oldmeldrum then stopped at Inverurie and had a short stroll along the main street then over to Westhill, Cults and home. Sunday 9am there was a phonecall - his PEJ tube had a hole in it so could I take him to hospital. We sat at the hospital for hours just to be sent home as the consultant only does the op he needs (replacing the whole tube) on a Thursday!!! I finally arrived home at 8pm to cook Sunday dinner.
Therefore I had no time to or even work out the 'how to' upload photos! Maybe tonight?

New Stampin' Up Colours

On arriving home last night there was an envelope lying on the doormat holding the new Stampin'Up colourways - card, paper and ribbon from Dawn. Why had I promised myself that I would crack on and catch up on a large pile of ironing last night? !!! (Husband just back from a 10day golfing trip to Hilton Head!!!!). I just laid the samples on my table, had a quick shuffle around before heading for bed and then again this morning before leaving for work!!!!

I sent off 2 cards yesterday (birthday and new baby) but didn't think to take a photo - maybe because they were very basic and made a few weeks ago - but I was pleased with them anyway. My crafting time is at a minimum at the moment as I have the task of clearing out my brothers flat but hopefully that will be completed this weekend - fingers crossed. Then I will set to and see if I can get some photos uploaded on my blog.

1st Birthday Bash and my 1st Post

For my 1st post I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Jacqui and her helpers at SIMPLY CREATE in Alford. It is a year since the shop opened and Jacqui held a birthday party/crop to celebrate. The shop is gorgeous and Jacqui and her staff are wonderful. Needless to say I wish her success for her 2nd year and I hope to be able to get along to more of the events that she lays on throughout this coming year.
