Mmmmm - lovely candy!

I've been trawling around Blogger to find who is giving away blog candy so I'm in the process of updating the list on the right bar. There are some fab giveaways and they are easy to enter. Most ask for a comment and/or to link to a blog and/or become a follower so to be in with a chance of winning, just take a look at the list and click on the links. Do let me know if you win!

Next up is a black and white wedding card made from the same paper pack. I stamped a Papermania image and greeting in black and used clear embossing powder. I mounted both on to black card. I added background paper, some ribbon & brads. Lovely finish!

New cards

As I promised earlier, I've updated my slide show with some new cards from recent events.

First up is a "spring" card made from square card and using Clare's "the big one" papers. The flowers were from the same paper, mounted on to card then cut out and mounted.

My final card for today is a never ending card. This is a fabulous card that has the potential to drive people nuts! It just goes on and on as you fold it open again and again. It looks really hard to make but is really easy. All you need is two pieces of 6" x 6" card. Cut each piece in half giving you 4 pieces of 3" x 6". Score a central line on each piece vertically and then horizontally from both ends of each piece at 1.5". Lay two pieces together with the join vertical. The other two pieces lay on top with the join horizontal. Glue the 4 corners. Job done.
Two things to remember: the measurements and the gluing of the corners must be accurate. Finally, if your card "catches" as you open it, find where it catches and simply shave a bit off.

If you make one yourself, please do leave a mssg with a link or your blog addy so I can go take a look!

Been busy....

I've been bust since last Thursday prepping the workshop I did on Friday night, then the demo on Saturday, then the sunday school craft yesterday.

The workshop was great fun with many newbies there. The end result of spring cards was fabulous - so many designs and ideas. The puddings were pretty yummy too!

The demo at Reams on Saturday was busy but a bit quieter than normal. Where were you all?? Probably sunning yourselves in the lovely weather we enjoyed.

I absolutely promise to upload some pictures on new cards tonight and may be even a project for you to have a go at.

Off to to the fun factory for the day..... have a good day whatever you're doing.
