This was the final class at SU in Aberdeen and Diane took it. I love the 3d affect of this card and enjoyed putting it together.
Looking forwards to the next event later in the year. It's the first event I've been too and actually finished everything.
As fella crafter's know we have cupboards full of half finished items, especially from Holland. One day I'll get them all sorted! (Wishful thinking!)

This was Kara's class at the SU camp. I loved having a go at the stamping layers, very effective and as all SU stash co-ordinates beautiful the final effects are great. To finish it off we added very fine glitter to get that BLING feeling which unfortunately isn't clear in this picture.

Now back to the SU stamp class. This was Elaine's class and I have to say I love this colour combo, so much so when I saw Pam at the weekend she mentioned that I matched the card we'd made at SU camp in Aberdeen. Had a good giggle in this class also, thanks Elaine but then we always end up giggling about something! I loved the rollers and the mitered edges...which I need to practise. Oh my SU wish list gets bigger daily!

We seem to have a lot of birthdays in May.
My baby was 5 yesterday and shock horror got a bought birthday card! I know it's bad but he was much more interested in his party and decorating the house in an "animal" theme.
These are a couple of the cards I've made recently for birthdays. I've made very similar cards for the sisters across the road and the rugby themed card was for one of DS friends who is 10 today, Happy Birthday George!

SU Stamp camp in Aberdeen, as promised more pic's of what we made. This was Dawn's class. I love the colour scheme and the stamps. The internal section was made using the 3D sizzix cake die, which caused no end of innuendo's, giggles and snigger's. (You had to be there!!) It kept us amused throughout the day, will we ever look at the die in the same manner again?!

Today I have mostly been "playing with my blog". I know there are far more important things to be doing like housework, yep but I'm on strike and pottering on here instead.

I promised some pictures from the Stamp Camp in Aberdeen earlier in the month so to wet your appetite I have started with the make and takes which were quickly put together in the morning before lunch and afternoon classes commenced. I had a great day crafting and enjoyed the company of some new and old faces, you know who you are!!!
(And I haven't eaten the sweets yet, how good am I!!)

Now as I've been so bad keeping up on here lately I'm now going to post twice on one day.
All or nothing here I'm afraid.

My fella crafter's have heard my pleas of late for a doggy stamp to create a sympathy card. I was actually looking for a black collie but found nothing at all that I liked. I found this image and have tweaked it slightly. My pal who I made it for said it was just what she wanted so therefore I'm happy. Dare I mention the word decoupage without being slapped?!! Not only a bad crafter but a secret (not anymore) decoupager!!!

Guess what?
I've got batteries!!

Here are a couple of requests I've had recently.
One for a friend of a friend who has just passed her "Easy Jet" training
and the other for a retiring thespian.

I'm a bad, bad, bad blogger!
You know why?
I can't get off my bum and charge my batteries for my camera.

I'm not being a lazy crafter...I am busy making cards, honest. Do you believe me?
So guess you could say I'm being a lazy photographer!! (Maybe not photographer and more "point and shooter"!!)
Jo I'm in need of your services!!
