Christmas came early........

I've been a really bad blogger recently and something just have to give, but hopefully things have calmed down and I'm back home so you should see regular postings from me........ and for those of you that don't know its my birthday month so please be sure to pop back for my "Birthday Blog Candy"

Another reason I haven't blogged was because I have been busy preparing for my "Christmas in July" Saturday special class.  Lots of fun was had by the ladies, they came into Mickey & co singing Christmas Carols to them. We had light refreshments but the cook was unable to produce any mince pies   :o(

Here is one of the cards that we made in total we made 4 different cards and 3 other projects.

Products used :~   Top note die, Not quite Navy, Night of Navy and Bashful Blue Cardstock, Night of Navy Ink, Plaitnum Shimmer Paint, small Heart punch, Perfect Pearls, 3mm Night of Navy taffeta ribbon and the two stamp sets used where Serene Snow flakes and Heard from the Heart.

Today I'm going to share with you a couple of cards that I taught my ladies at one of my card classes. 
My ladies have a fear of bows so I thought that I would spend some time  showing/teaching them different ways of tying bows......

As my ladies took their places they looked a little puzzled at the sight of  a dinner fork in front of them but they were really pleased at the out come and how simple it was to make this bow.

I had a couple of spare sets left over so a couple took them home to finish of them my best friend texted me at 12.30 in the morning really pleased with being able to do it all on her own, picture as well!!

The supplies used was Chocolate Chip and Certainly Celery Cardstock, Certainly Celery Taffeta Ribbon,  Chocolate Chip Ink, Greenhouse Gala Designer Paper from the main catalogue and from the Mini Catalogue Four Frames Stampset and the matching Decorative Label Punch.

Colour Coach Blog Hop

Today I'm going to share with you 2 cards that I made with you for the Charity event both using the Colour Coach as a guide especially  I knew I was participating in this "Colour Coach Blog Hop"

This is a handy little tool which I certainly wouldn't be with out now!!

This first one is using Sahara Sand, Pink Pirouette and Bravo Burgundy. The punches used are the 13/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches.

This second card that I came up with based on an idea given to me by the lovely Bekka (who's blog can be found here to make cards using a  "One sheet Wonder" at the Chairty event. 

I so wanted to use Daffodil Delight on  one of the cards so using my trusty Colour Coach I looked up a combination and came up with this one that I really liked, Marina Mist, Pretty in Pink and Daffodil Delight.  The Sentiment for this card can be found in the Curly Cute Stampset.

Thank you for stopping by, I'll only know if you leave me a comment so please be sure to do so.

To continue your way around the blog hop then pop on to Niki's blog and if you missed it then why not pop back to Emma's and have a look at there too!!
