Star Book

Morning all,

here are the piccies of the star book i made in the final class at sugar and spice.
I have made a few of these before so i had the idea already. I was a bit dubious about folding the piccies to go in the middle, but i can honestly say i love the outcome.

I would like to thank Nina for showing us how to make all these books, and for running the class for us.

I would also like to wish Janet a fab holiday back home in Aus.

Thanks for looking.

Nesties card

Here is the second card of the morning.
I used a square card blank and cur the large scalloped circle using my nesties and cuttlebig. I then cut the pink circle using nesties and also embossed it using the new tan mat i bought last weekend. (thanks nina & marion for showing me how to do this.)

Cupcake was sent to me, but i think it is one of magnolias, i coloured this using my koh-i-noor pencils added glossy accent to the icing and sprinkled on some glamour dust. The flower is another of the Green Tara ones.

Simple yet effective me thinks :)

Thanks for looking.


First Wallet card

OMG i cant believe how much i have got done already.
You have already seen my album, and i have also made this:-

Image was one that was sent to me coloured with koh-i-noor pencils, card from stash, eyelets found in bottom of box, buttons were papermania ones i think, large flower was green tara, small flower from a bunch i got from range, and brad was a papermania pearl brad.
Thanks for looking.

Bad Hand & new tattoos

Afternoon all,

I have been a very bad blogger i know :( Sorry.

I didnt manage to get any crafting done at all last week as I stayed at Darrens Mum and Dads in Basildon. I was hoping to go out to the shed the weekend but ended up being a bit of a hectic one, so no crafting still. Hopefully tonight.

Saturday started off bad for me, as I was woken to my hand being trodden on. Not deliberatly but still it was very painful, i woke up screaming.

This is the result of that:

The photo doesnt actually show how badly bruised the hand is for some reason. Trust me though it is black blue and purple. Not good. I went to the walk in clinic saturday and had it xrayed as the nurse took one look and said it might be fractured. Fortunatly no broken/fractured bones.

Saturday I also started my 4 week class at Sugar and Spice. This one is called off the page and it is based on mini albums. Nina our teacher is fab, you can see her blog here. There are 3 of us doing the course, Myself, Sharon and Janet. So its nice and small. I forgot to take piccies so will try and get it done tonight.

After the course I went to meet up with Darren as he was having his tattoo done, which does look very good - what you think?

I also managed to get mine done too, I am really pleased with mine, this isnt the best piccie but hey

Then sunday I went and gt my nails done nice and pretty :), and in the afternoon we went to Darrens cousins BBQ, which was nice.

Last night we went to the dogs with Darrens family again, again had a good night. Darren won all but one race, i didnt win any :(. Next time i will follow all his bets i

Hope you are all well.
