Colour Create Challenge

I am a member of a ladies lunch club (something encouraged at work!) and they have recently elected me Club Secretary. This coming Wednesday is our first meeting with me in my new role so I thought I'd make everyone a little gift to say thank you for having the confidence in me. Hopefully I'll do a good job!

I made these cute little bags using my cricut and filed them with Lindor chocolate eggs (yummy!) and then decorated in co-ordinating colours which just happened to fit in nicely with this weeks Colour Create challenge: red, black and off white!

Here they are all together, I hope they like them!

Thank for stopping by

Julie's all day class

What a fun weekend I had last week - me and a few others went up to Leeds to visit Julie and go to her all day class - we did a lot of chatting and not much crafting but we all had lots of fun!

Here are a couple of treat holders

and here is a lovely tin we decorated to hold our cards...

and here are the cards we made...

and these are the ones I had to finish off at home (because we were too busy chatting!)

These are all made using the Sale-A-Bration sets Whimsical Words, Happy Moments & Vintage labels & the Sunny Day Simply Scrapping kit (tempting turquiose, pink passion, old olive and pumpkin pie). I wasn't too sure about the colour scheme at first but I actually love it!!!

Thanks for stopping by

All you need is Love!

Well Valantines Day is here again! I wasn't here for most of the weekend because I was up near Leeds having a lovely time with Siobhan and Julie and some of the other Jems! (I will post some pictures of my projects in a few days time). I therefore thought I'd better make him something special so here is his matching card and milk carton filled with goodies!

I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday (last week's) and the milk carton came from Sarah-Jane's blog - I love it SJ!!!

I'm entering these two in this week's Daring Cardmakers challenge 'Have a heart' and Cute Card Thursday's challenge 'In the name of Love!'

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone had a lovely Valentines Day
