Hi everyone, Fathers Day is fast approaching so I thought I would make a start on some cards.   For todays card base I used Early Expresso, the mat colour is Tip Top Taupe which I ran through the Big Shot using the Woodlands Textured embossing folder, the ribbon is early expresso which I had left over, you can use any colour that you like. I used the largest Scallop Die with Real Red Card Stock and the next size down using Whisper White Card Stock, I stamped the car and greetings in memento black and used copic markers to colour in.

Last Sunday 17th July, 16 I had my very first market stall at Nic Nac Paddy Whack Market in Berwick, which is a monthly market.  I had a great day and met so many lovely ladies and gents too.  I thought I would share some pictures from the day.  Unfortunately it will not be running next month.  I have a few other markets I hope to be going to so I will keep you posted and would be nice to see you at one of them.

This was my sign up table to card classes or to join up as a Demonstrator, I was so happy with the amount of people that stopped by for a chat.
My hubby is standing in the background, he helped me for the day, he is just awesome!!!
He was the muscle putting up the tables for me.
A picture of the front of my tables, next time I will have white table clothes but I only had 6 days to prepare and make everything so was a tad time poor.

Some post it note covers with pen set, they were fun and easy to make. (You could make one in one of my classes too).
I hope you enjoyed todays post, if you would like to come along to one of my classes, Host a workshop in your home (and get some freebies) or become a Demonstrator please contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day.

Shaker Card
Hi everyone, for today's very cute Baby Boy shaker card I used the Something for Baby stamp set and matching die set, the new Dapper Denim card stock for the base of the card, the yellow and green background paper is from the DSP Affectionately Yours and the polka dot is from the Playful Palette DSP paper stack using the Bright Sequins for inside the shaker.  I stamped the baby carriage in Dapper Denim and Duck in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White card stock, with the Big Shot I cut out the carriage using the die set, using the new foam strips for around the cut out carriage (a tip on using the foam strips around curves is to make little snips on one side this will make is so much easier going around) lastly using the clear window sheets.  Unfortunately the blue ribbon and baby sentiments have both retired, but they can easily be replaced with the Dapper Denim Ruched ribbon and Made With Love stamp set sentiments.   I have listed the products for you below for anything you need to make this card, just click on any of the products and it will take you to my store.
Thanks for stopping by, I will see you here tomorrow.

Hi everyone, these are writing sets and a blank Thank You note card using the Note Card and Envelope set, the pad can be replaced, I bought them from the Reject shop and they fit perfectly.
I CASED this from Brandys cards tutorial which I have attached below.  I have listed the products below that I used as they are slightly different. Brandy has made the notepad permanent but I cut a piece of card stock 2inch x 6 inch and scored 1/2 inch on each side and glued each side down just over 1/4 from the top and you just slide the back of the pad in.   Brandy's tutorial will give you all the instructions to construct this lovely set.  I added an extra mat on the front cover under the whisper white and on the back behind the writing pad for extra strength,  I also stamped the all over the back cover and inside cover with the Flourish stamp from the First Sight stamp set.  Unfortunately the flowers I stamped on the whisper white are now retired but you could use any flower stamps you have.

To get one of these lovely sets FOR FREE!!! all you have to do is join one of my classes or place a $25.00 order before P&H, and let me know your favourite colour, that simple.  You can find me on Facebook just click on the Follow Me Button on the left hand side and it will take you there also visit my Pinterst Board which if under Inspiration Button
