Cards, Cookies and Cosiness

The card my ladies made in class this week, there was a fair bit of cutting, all the little layered panels took some time but everyone agreed it was worth the effort. I think the fold will be replicated in lots of different styles.

We all agreed the extra weight made it a 'give' rather than 'mail' kind of card. The papers are by Prima and the die cut is a Nestie. The stamp is Hero Arts.

On wednesday afternoon June came in laden with a huge box full of homemade cookies, peanut butter, milk chocolate and white chocolate with walnut. All absolutely delicious - and gluten free too as we have a lady with an intolerance in class - how thoughtful ! We all had a couple of each and there were plenty left over, June said I could take them home for the kids - thankyou June, they went down a treat, the kids all say a BIG thankyou xxx

Remember the vintage ATC's I made a couple of posts ago ? I have started to make an extra one each swap to use as a card topper, this is the one I made in the crop this afternoon, very quick and easy as I had the stamping already done. Papers are Basic Grey, vintage button is K and Co. The large rose is a Prima flower, we took delivery of them a couple of weeks ago and they have been flying off the shelves, such a pretty flower !

Talking of ATC's, you have a fortnight to go to hand in your Recycling ATC's for the Running With Scissors swap, I already have quite a few in and I can tell you they are all fabulous, really creative with some fantastic reuse and recycle ideas.

Finally I will leave you with a picture of a scarf my lovely friend Dawn made, she truly is such a talented knitter and one of the sweetest ladies you could meet. She brought one in to show me last week and lo and behold had made one for me by wednesday - thankyou so much Dawn - I can't wait to wrap myself up in it xxx

 Love and cookies
