Happy Monday !
Today's card uses the same colour combo and is CASED from one I saw by Lynn Starzl of starzlstamps.com
I really like the High Tide stamp set and like the calm , peaceful feel of this card......
I purposefully haven't added a sentiment yet as I feel it could suit a range of occasions, so I will add before I send.
Also, do you like those cute tiny stars ? They were the ' waste' from my Peace on Earth card - always like to use up the scraps lol !
I have a few admin jobs I need to get done then I'm hoping to do some Christmas crafting this afternoon with my new preorder goodies.
Have a nice day

Today's card is using Happiest of Days. I really like cute images in this one and it has sentiments too, so a very useful set
For those that like to follow the colour combinations it's Pool Party, Smokey Slate, Night of Navy and Real Red. Nice and fresh although my class ladies did all end up with very red fingers !
Have a good weekend

At last ! The sun is shining and I'm sitting out in the garden writing this. I'd like to say topping up my tan but I don't tan - just grow more freckles lol !
The weather has been horrible since I've been back , wet and cold , so it's lovely to feel the warmth of the sun again. It seems a lot longer than last week ago that I was moaning it was too hot !!!
I've got a Christmas card to show you today .....a little play with Carols for Christmas......
This set is in the new Autumn /Winter catalogue but has been released early - so you can get it now !!
Having a big sentiment is so useful and the dies are fab too - and not just for Christmas !
And I also had my box of preorder goodies arrive yesterday too so there will be lots more Christmas makes coming soon.
While the sun is shining I'm going to carry on and schedule a post for you for tomorrow, same colour combination but a different stamp set, for a birthday this time

Oops late posting today, but better late than never !
After a marathon ironing session yesterday I decided I deserved a little crafting time at my desk. I was supposed to be designing my projects for this weeks classes and was going to use my new Colourful Seasons set........
I was thinking of making something using the branch and flower images but then I suddenly got the idea that maybe I could make a snowman from these stamps. I know, strange, but sometimes I go off on a tangent lol !
Anyway after looking at the stamps carefully this is what I came up with .......
Cute isn't he ? Wanna build a snowman lol ? Hope the picture below helps explain which bit is which....
Can't wait to see what else I can make with these stamps - but I suppose I'd better finish what I was supposed to be doing !

As promised I'm back to show you a few pictures from a boat trip we went on while away. As well as seeing some beautiful (read expensive!) luxury homes overlooking the bay we were fortunate enough to see some dolphins.....
It was so amazing to see them in the wild and they came right close to the boat...
Almost within touching distance....
Although taking pictures was quite tricky as all of a sudden they would leap out of the water and dive back in again. A fantastic experience and lots of magical memories !
I've been 'back to work' today with an all day class so I will be back with some creative makes on Monday but tomorrow some of my team mates are taking part in the Jems Monthly Blog Hop and the theme is ' Anything but a Card' . I wasn't able to take part this month due to my holiday but check out what the girls have been up to, you can start at The Craft Spa www.thecraftspa.blogspot.co.uk
Have a good weekend

Morning all - although to be honest I'm not too sure what day/time it is lol ! I've been on holiday for the last 2 weeks and have a little jet lag today.
I haven't got any projects made yet to show you but I have missed stamping SO much so give me a few days to sort the mountain of washing/ ironing and then normal service will be resumed.
For now I thought I would show you a few of my holiday piccies - don't worry not all of them lol !
This was my view from my sun bed. I tended to be up quite early and enjoy the peace and quiet round the pool before it got too hot later
We stayed on a large resort and all the grounds were beautiful with lots of lakes.
Pop back tomorrow and I will show you some pictures from an amazing boat trip I went on.
Think I might need to put the heating on - I'm freezing !
