Cherry tree lane number 2..

img_2725-mediumTodays Kaisercraft cherry tree lane card uses the 6″ pad. The flowers are fussy cut from one of the papers in the pad,and a piece is used as the background layer.The piece the sentiment is on is from the 12 x 12 sheet of pull aparts that accompany this range, and that sheet is great with lots of different images to pull apart and use.I added some lace, ribbon and a couple of pearls to finish. I taught my class this morning, and we used this range of papers. It was lovely catching up with my ladies, now next on my agenda is packing for the cruise I am teaching on. We leave two weeks today, so not long now! Til tomorrow….

IMG_2854 (Medium)Now and again I get out my inks and stamps, and go to town! For the next few days we will have a stamping special where I will show you what I have been working on lately.This one uses all stampin up – cardstock – pretty in pink,raspberry ripple and primrose petals. The stamp is from Serene Silhouettes stamp set and stamped in Raspberry ripple ink, and even the ribbon is stampin up! I die cut a circle through the top two layers of cardstock so that the lowest colour showed through, and I have just realised the embossing folder I used was not stampin up – it was a freebie off the front of a magazine. Had a lovely crafty afternoon with some other like minded ladies, swapped tips, saw what each other were working on, and enjoyed afternoon tea together – it was lovely after doing lessons back to back this week to just sit, craft and relax! Til tomorrow….

Celebrate Today with Bo Bunny Prairie Chic….

IMG_6054 (Medium)I have interrupted my latest series to post this card that I made this morning ( in between shopping and visiting Mum and dad) . It’s a special card because I am Celebrating – In the next few hours one of you will be my 100,000th visitor to my blog! This is amazing to me – My blog is a daily journal of my crafting travels, and sometimes my life travels too. That so many of you visit is great, and that so many of you come back is even better! My love and relaxation is card making, although I have taken a few short trips down the box making path, the off the page path , scrapbooking path,and the mixed media canvas art path ( a longer path that one as I love creating canvasses!) I always stay true to card making. looking back over my blog I have evolved and changed, and tried some new techniques – some worked, some didn’t, but I have always had fun and shown my successes and failures! Recent highlight was being chosen as a beautiful Blog in Papercraft Inspirations magazine, and ongoing highlights are my card classes that I teach, many of my ladies I class as true friends, and they¬† travel the card making path with me, sharing ideas, and tips.So to all of you who visit, those that keep coming back and the 100 or so followers that have joined along the way – Thank You so much for letting me reach this milestone! Todays card was quickly made with Bo Bunny Prairie chic papers, a stampin up sentiment stamp, and some ribbon lace, and bling. I think it reflects my style ( for now!) perfectly! ( Can’t wait to make more with this gorgeous paper….Til tomorrow…..
