Birthday Greetings x 6 !

Well hello blogging friends..I am back as promised. This time I have some more shares from card class. For those that ask it is a monthly class and we make 6 cards in two sessions of three. Always something different and the chance to use stamps/dies that otherwise you may not choose to.

So straight in....a tag card with a  liberal amount of winking!!..

..........a bit of decoupage here....

this uses the inside of the centre cut in the card above....

 Oxide inks and the words are die cut from card swiped with the same oxide colours used in the background...The black square is drawn on with a fine liner but looks 3d.

Gemini dies on this one...not sure about the flower...

 and this one is created from a Hobbyart scene it set that contains the castle, hills etc which I used in a previous card.

and there we have it.!

I hope your week is going well. Here in West Yorkshire we are fed up with the rain! The days are so dark and depressing and it is so hard to get motivated.
I have been in the craft room but mainly trying to find a home for things (freebies from magazines)
....this sorting out lark takes time, especially when one has so much stuff!! but I am pleased to say that all my ink pads are nicely labelled now and I can see what I have!

Thank you so much for stopping by and extra thanks to those that leave me a comment and let me know they have been. Your comments are what keep me blogging as sadly it seems rapidly to be going out of fashion....blogging that is. I wonder if some peoples feeds have disappeared from blogger as I know that on the odd occasion I miss an odd post from someone for that reason.

I went to Port Sunlight on Saturday......always a good show and though there was nothing I wanted or needed, it as along way to go and not buy a few bits. Mainly stamps from Uniko and Inkylicious this time. It didn't seem as busy as last time we went in the Spring so it was easier to get to see the stands.

Enjoy the rest of your week.....I won't wish it away as we will soon be half way through October!!!

Take care everyone and keep well.
Love Carole xx


  1. Oh WOW, you HAVE been busy Carole! Six wonderful creations. It's been pretty dark and dismal here too, although we seem to be having a few days break from the rain. Glad you had a good time at Port Sunlight and managed to get yourself a few crafty goodies. xx

  2. You've been a busy crafter with these gorgeous cards, some are very stylised. I like the pretty flowers and colours on the tag, very crisp and clean. You have such an array of cards, nicely done x

  3. What a great collection as usual. Carole, and I especially love the last one where you used the scene builder stamps from Hobbyart. I have a few sets from there but I never seem to use them and you have reminded me that I need to pull them out and have a play. I looked out for you at Port Sunlight but didn't spot you. Like you, I thought the crowd was thinner so I hope that won't mean stallholders will think twice about returning. I hope the rain stops for you soon. We have had rain forecast but it has actually been quite sunny in between the downpours.

  4. Hi Carole

    What a fabulous post .. .. and so many gorgeous makes. I love them all but especially the third and the last ones! The colours on those two are extra beautiful.

    Your work is always so beautiful and neat.

    Quite a lot of work to fit into a class session .. .. and a lot of temptation to buy the products at the end too. LOL!!

    Pleased you enjoyed Port Sunlight. Looking forward to seeing your new acquisitions in action.

    Love Jules xx

  5. Hi Sis, FABULOUS makes, wish I was closer so I could go with you to these great classes... recognize a few of the stamps you have used they are on my wish list lol!!.. also been miserable with lots of rain here is South Yorkshire.. but today is clear skies and sunshine..
    Love Sis xxx

  6. Well these creations sure brighten a wet and dreary day! I love that big bright orange flower and the black and white one... Gorgeous and original all of them. Enjoy your Sunday Carole!

  7. So sorry to be late Carole, not been a good blogger this last week or so, the 'noddles' playing up big time, but what a wonderful feast for the eyes.

    Each one is pretty and being a floral girl having problems choosing a favourite, love the second with the decoupage and also the last which has a real summer feel.
