Groovi Birthday

I've been having another play with my Groovi plates and I have to say I'm really enjoying them. This time I have made a birthday card for a friend

October Post Cards

Well it's another month and that means it's time for the next post card swap over at Chocolate Baroque and this month the choices were Marigold or Purple Heather. I chose to go down the marigold route as I didn't really have stamps that fitted either theme. Anyway here are my postcards and I hope they are ok

Another Christmas Card

I'm on quite a roll now with my Christmas cards although I must make a couple of birthday cards in the next week or so and also I need to get my next set of Postcards done for the swap. However at the weekend I made this Christmas Card using a new Sue Wilson die from Creative Expressions.

More Christmas cards

On Thursday I managed to have some time to play and I was able to put together some more Christmas cards. I'd managed to get them cut out the evening before while watching the TV so i got 12 done in a fairly short amount of time. I did 6 each of these two designs. I got these from Craftsuprint a couple of years ago but had never got around to using them, I didn't know if they still do them but you can find the Craftsuprint site here

First attempt

Last Sunday I was lucky enough to go to Alexandra Palace to the craft show which was great and while I was there I treated myself to the Clarity Groovi Plate starter kit. It was wonderful to watch Barbara Gray demonstrating this great piece of kit and I was really inspired by her. this is my first attempt at using it. I know its far from perfect and I need lots more practice but i did really enjoy using it

Christmas Card

Well on Wednesday it was 100 days until Christmas (according to something I read) so I thought it was time that I started sharing my Christmas cards, not that I've made many. In fact this is the only one that is completed but I have the elements cut out for several more and so I am hoping to get on and get them made up this week.

Card Group

Last Saturday was my card group and this time Di was our leader and these are the two cards we made

Im not too happy with my colouring on the first card but we didn't know that was what we were doing so only had the colouring pencils Di provided foe us to use.
The second card still needs a greeting adding but I'm waiting until I decide what I will use the card for to add that

September Post Cards

This year is certainly flying by and summer is almost over here in the UK and we are starting to head into Autumn. A new month means its time for the postcard swap over at Chocolate Baroque so here are the post cards I have made for September. The colour for this mont is Blue and the flower is Aster, now I don't have an aster stamp so I've just gone with the blue theme this time.

Our youngest daughter is being bridesmaid to her best friend on Saturday and she asked me to make her a card to give the Bride and Groom. I made two as I wasn't quite sure what she wanted .
Here they are
