well we had a small bunch of crafters today you must have all been at the beach, was nice & cool where we were, was still noisy though as Deb & Kate were back this week, although Dorothy claimed she got more work done listening to thier antics & was very entertained! I managed to help our Daphney with 2 scrapbook pages & I made two yes two cards! unheard of me making a card let alone two, 1 was inspired by Gay who shared an unusual template for a double diamond card have seen a few of these about but not made one until now & a baby boy card I will try to add better pictures tomorrow just scanned these

Hope to see some of you there.
our challenge this month for the design team was to create a card using paper piercing, I decided to do some stiching a task made a little easier by using the Christmas tree from the Christmas cheer cart which already has the stiching on! I enjoyed making the paper chains althought a little fiddly, will be making some with my children in a larger size to decorate.
my creative juices have been flowing with this lovely range of lily-boo Christmas images, finally I got to play in my new craft room, still not totally settled in but loving my play times, I hope to have some inspiring craft demo's for you @ our next craft day
the background on this one was a cutout from a Christmas advertising brochure I had hanging around from last year, coupled with the so swirly roller SU stamp in brocade blue they were made for each other buttons on a dufex type ribbon
SU circle of friendship stamp, Lily-boo's image coloured with promarkers
here is the last of my submissions for the Lily-boo's halloween images this time I have used the image on the pillow boxes to create treat boxes, also embossed through the CB & a little black ribbon to finish
