Hope you are all well, and are still getting some traces of Summery Days, I like September as it's usually not that bad weatherwise, yet it is still not quite Winter and not quite Summer....Oh ye that makes it Autumn....Durr! lol
You all know what I mean, and this week we cannot complain here, as it's been lovely.
As it's Saturday it's Challenge Time at Sweet Stampin'. This week it's "Ribbons & Bows" and our sponsors are The Ribbon Girl.
For my card this week, I was asked a couple of months ago by my Daughter to make a Baby Card for one of her friends at work, so this is the card I made.
I have used a LOTV baby girl image, and some papers by Which Craft (think they are Nit Wits).
the little pearl heart is from my stash as is the organza ribbon.

I am a little tired and a bit achy today....Yesterday I wallpapered one of my Daughter and Finance's rooms in their New House.....Forgot how difficult and hard work it is....A big shout out to anyone who is a Painter & Decorator by trade....Respect!
I am now waiting at said New House for New Bed to arrive..........No show yet!!
~I realise today is 9/11 and although it was 13 years ago I still feel gutted when I see on tv the Twin Towers on fire. I see it like it's the first time every time, I don't think I will ever get over the feeling I feel when I see it. Just devastating. Thinking of you all today.~
On to today's make. (I have been doing allsorts lately, as I have a Fair coming up in a couple of weeks) I have made boxes, trays and other MDF things, but I have also been making cards for my Daughter's friend's at work and this is one of them.
The Papers are from my stash, the banner and cherry die's are all by Memory Box, the pearls are Hobby House, the border is MS, ribbon is from Mei Flowers, and this super stamp is from a set by Anna Griffin, you make up all the lines to fit and there are lots to choose from, clever idea and I think it looks lovely, very different.

Hi There Girls,
Hope I find you all well this nice day in September...Yes it is September already.
Only two months off my Winter Sun Holiday with Mum and Sister....Cannot wait now!
Well onto today's Challenge over at Sweet Stampin'. "The Great Outdoors", and our Sponsors this week are Stamp & Create.
Go ahead and have a go at this weeks theme, but don't forget we are a stamping challenge, so some stamping somewhere please.
I have chosen this lovely paper as the inspiration for our theme, Not sure who makes it as it was a single sheet, it once belonged to a 6x6 pad but not sure which one!
I have stamped one of my Hero Art Sentiment, and finished off with some mock stitching, a Whiff of Joy Corner Die, a Memory box Bunting Die and a few different coloured Enamel Dots.

A big thank you for all the comments you leave for me, they are so sweet and I appreciate them all.
I have been making some cards for my Daughter's work colleges, they sure do keep me in business and I love the variation they ask for so always nice to do.
I have made a Wedding Anniversary card. I wanted to do something a little different from the usual cute image (mind you I have some great Anniversary images!)
This flower wreath stamp is from "Chloe", she is a super lady and her stamps are just so nice, I will be buying more supplies off her in October at the "Happy Stamper Show" Port Sunlight, where she will have a stall (if you live near Port Sunlight it is a fabulous Stamping show, but note that it's ticket's only, so you must buy one asap, here is the link to it.
I stamped the Flower Wreath a couple of times on some pearly cardstock, then decoupaged some of the flowers on the top of the original stamped image. I used a clear embossing powder to give it all a shine. I added some Hobby House pearls to the flower centres and used the pc to generate the Sentiment. I matted it all with a touch of Silver mirror board. Nice and Simple, yet the stamp I think is just super.

Me again, I don't know, don't post for ages and then twice on the same day.
I have been busy making some little post it note pad note holders. (Saw this done on C&C on tv the other day, Debbie from Craft Asylum was making them, so I thought I would give it a go).
So...I ended up making half a dozen, here are three of them.
I started with a piece of card that I folded in the traditional Easel card way, then stuck the post it notes to the bottom section. The wording "Notes" is done with the Letter Box Stamp from Clarity Stamps (I use this so much it's a wonder it has not worn out, I use it on loads of projects and the kids on the Summer Workshops always use it too).
The papers are all loose sheets from my stash, great way to use up lots of leftovers. I have finished them off with flowers, enamel dots, pearls and a few metal butterfly's.

Sorry I have been missing in action lately.
I have had a few Commissions to get out the way including a 12x12 Scrapbook, so that took up a lot of time, now to top it all my lovely Daughter Eve and her Fiancée Sean have just got the Keys to their new house, so I have been busy helping their too.....Exciting and Emotional all at the same time. They are very happy and their house is so sweet.
I will show you the Kaisercraft Advent Calenders I am working on at a later date. They are quite big and alot of work so not had alot of time to do any other projects.
I am also waiting on photo's to do two "Boy" scrapbooks, so more big commissions, but hey I am not complaining, I love it!

Another Saturday means another great challenge waiting for you at Sweet Stampin'.
This weeks it's.....Yee Ha.....Cowboy/Cowgirl Theme. Our sponsors are Crafts U Love.
I like this one as I have two great stamps from Nellie Snellen, it gives me chance to use them, and I have done just that....Used them both!
I decided to make a couple of Big Tags using the Cowboy and the Indian. (Did you ever play this game when you were younger?) I was always an Indian on foot being chased by Cowboys on bikes....How's that fair!! Gosh that was a long time ago now, still remember it tho'.
I started with Craftwork Cards Tags and used some leftover papers from my box to cover them. I have stamped the set of Grunge Stampin' Up stamps on top of the papers and finished with the images which I coloured with Pro-Markers and some red twine.
