On Sunday I joined a number of crafters at Pat Mellows' stamping day.  Elsa had brought along all the materials and lots of ideas for us to try...all in aid of Childline.  As well as crafting we enjoyed Pat's excellent lasagne and apple pie lunch and I understand, in excess of £500 was raised for this very worthwhile charity.   It was a super day.

There was no way I could have made all the cards but I had a good go and made this one........

..............and this one.  ( I can't get it to go the right way up!!)

This one is Jill's.

More tomorrow!  Mx

More 'layer' cards using Stampin'Up stamp set "Creative Elements" . 

I like the Crisp Cantaloupe "Ruffle Stretch Trim"  ribbon.  I have this ribbon in all the new colours now and I am crazy about them.  I sell them by the metre if you want to give them a try, 92p plus second class postage or, of course, you can buy a 9 metre roll for £8.25. Just email me.
Happy crafting.  Mx

Saturday found me at Sue's Craft and Chat Club.  She really is a happy, friendly person and we always have a great day.  We made a number of 'layer' cards (not sure what they are really called!) and I was really pleased with the results.......... (there's that Flower Shop stamp set again and the Venetian Romance DSP!)

Sue provided the original measurements (email me if you would like them) which made the 41/2 by 6 card and then I fiddled and finally came up with a square card which looks fine.....

The Stampin'Up stamp set "Everything Eleanor" was ideal for the stamped swirls and the "Fancy Fan" embossing folder made an interesting background.  Pity you can't see the rhinestones on the flowers.
More samples tomorrow.  Mx
