September shares

Hi Friends!...phew what a week!...but here I am at last with a few more shares.

I am so glad that I managed to make a few of you smile with my last post, thanks for letting me know those that did :)   and my other mission is also accomplished (card for son in Oz) but I am keeping that till it has a chance to get there, though viewing my blog is not on his to do list for sure! Something for you to look forward to

So more shares from Craft club/class...whatever the correct terminology is here.....

This is a blast from the past.......if you know what I mean. Stamped in Versamark and them 'Pearl Ex' powders brushed over the top! you remember that?...OK then you are younger than me..or not been crafting as long!!

I think this next one (seagull) is a Woodware stamp

This is a Crafters Companion stamp and edge die.....beautiful and very reasonably priced (no I am not on commission)...I just love it! Coloured with copics.

Not sure on this ones origins...maybe penny Black....... certain bits decoupaged on this but hard to see on the photo.

I could go on but will save some more for later...especially as time is not seeing my creativity at present. Hubby has been on holiday this week and I have had a visit from Rudolph courtesy of hubby of all in all a somewhat 'unusual' week. By Monday I should be back to normal!...for me anyway!

Thanks for popping by.....I do hope you are all well and Rudolph has flown right past you....but if not...I sympathise...atishoo...and get well soon.

Enjoy what is left of the weekend...beautiful Autumn sunshine here and the trees are turning lovely shades of gold and red. How I love nature.

Take care..till next time

A Christmas start!

Hello I am at last!

I hope you are all well and Thank you for stopping by.
Autumn is showing its colours here, the trees are dropping their leaves early this year, I guess that is down to all the dry weather we have had.

The cards I have to share this time around are some I made at a recent class I have started going to once a month. It is run by two lovely ladies (The Crafty Duo) who used to work in the Roseville Road (Leeds) branch of Samuel Taylor's crafts before its closure.

The cards they design for us to make are lovely and varied.
 I am sharing the first Christmas cards that I have done this year. I love them but of course they are not my designs...all credit to the Duo for that. (yes I have their permission to share)

This last one has to be a favourite...oh.... and the snowman (Penny Black)

As time is flying so quickly again this year it wont be long until our next session this month.

OK...time to get back to my stamp sorting......all are stored on cling panels in A4 binders and I am sorting them into categories and stamping or referencing them all on copy paper in clear wallets stored so I know what is on each sheet...laborious...but I am taking stock of what I have at the same time, and what has never been used. I haven't parted with much I have to say so no room gained there! One binder to go...Christmas!! ( I haven't thought about all the wood mounted ones I have in drawers yet!!..eek!)

Will see you all soon with some more class makes.
Enjoy your weekend when it arrives and Thanks again for your visit and comment if you have left me one. You are the reason I blog! Hugs
