My starlets Make N Take

Good morning, think we are in for a soaking today!!!

I thought I would cheer myself up and do some blogging.

So......... continuing with the offerings at the Starlets get together on 5 May, this is the card that I designed as our make 'n' take.

I do love to make CAS cards.  However, I must add that I am very likely to add bling!  I do like a bit of sparkle.    I had to be really strict with myself on this one though so as to keep it CAS !!

I must admit that I am hooked on making these card ribbons.  So much easier than trying to get the "perfect" bow.  I like things that are easy!

Well, hope you like my design.

All products used are from Stampin' Up.

Cardstock:  Whisper White
Paper:   Subtles Collection
Ink pad:    Cherry Cobbler

Right, better get off and get myself ready for work.

Speak again soon
Have a nice day
Take care

My Starlets Swap

Last weekend I got together with three members of Stamping Starlets for a day of craft, information, coffee and biscuits and all of this in beautiful surroundings  provided by Lesley G.  The sun was shining, the birds were all singing, such a lovely day.

Over the next few days or so I will show you the fruits of our labour that day!

As usual we all had very different swaps for each other.  That's one great thing about swaps eh?

Anyway, this was my swap.  Such a quick and easy gift and I'm sure would come in handy!  It was a post it note holder that held a 3" Square  post it note pad together with a matching page marker pad.
I think this would make a great hostess gift or a teacher pressie?
All products used (other than post it notes) are from Stampin Up

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Crumb cake, Daffodil Delight, Chocolate Chip
Ink:   Chocolate Chip

Right, I had better get off and help get the sunday roast on. Since having my daughter and her family (including 4 little ones!) living with us, most of my meals have been cooked for me.  My idea of heaven!

Speak again soon.
Take care
