Oodles of cards ...

I spent a few hours last weekend making lots of cards for charity - some to send to our local Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle and some to take into the special school where I work to raise some funds to buy a new swing in our outdoor learning area.

They were so simple to make because I used the fabulous pre-coloured images from the Lili Of The Valley Art Pads and also the large pre-coloured images from their outlet shop (have you been over there yet? lots of opportunities to grab a bargain). I added a few sheets of LOTV papers and some scraps of ribbon and I made 46 in an afternoon so I was happy

A Pretty Card ...

Last weekend I went away for a crafting weekend with lots of my lovely crafting friends to Whitby. As well as eating lots of cake and doing lots of talking we actually had quite a productive weekend and I came home with 9 cards that I'd made! Amazing as I usually go to these things with my car piled high with the full contents of my craftroom and come home with a full tummy and about 2 cards!

Anyway, here is one of the cards that I made using a new stamp from 3DJean, she is called Little Blossom

I used Little Blossom stamp, Lily Bee papers and diamante stickers from 3DJean
Liquid Pearls, Lace, satin ribbon and charm from Ribbon Girl
Copics, spellbinders die, stampin up tab punch
