Clean and simple

Very quick and easy Stampin' Up card, using 'Bird on a Branch' stamp set.

Don't faint.....

but I've made a card!! Although, to be fair, I have been making plenty of Christmas cards, but not posting them on my blog. The Christmas cards may remain unfinished though, the way things are going. I placed a Papertrey order, this month, that contains the finishing touch for my cards. But rather than winging it's way to me in England, within a few weeks as usual, the tracking shows that it has ended up in Ireland?? Parcelforce have no record of it on their system and the USPS tracking hasn't updated for 3 days - so to say I am frustrated, is a massive understatement!! Anyway fingers crossed that it turns up sooner rather than later.
Back to my card, which is for a friend's daughter's 17th birthday. Everything apart from the bling (Papermania) and the embossing folder (Cuttlebug) is from Papertrey - oh the irony!

ArtsyCrafts Weekend

Had a fantastic time at the ArtsyCrafts weekend in Warrington! Lin and Leandra are excellent teachers and the projects are so well thought out and organised, that it is relatively easy to take home something that you are really proud of.
The picture below is the main project of the weekend and my favourite.
