This week it is my sister's and a very dear friend's birthdays, so I thought that I would make them presents this year as I really didn't know what else to get them. So I decided to make a set of small but perfectly formed cards in one of the no-cut boxes. I once again used the Sale a Bration sets as they just work so well for this sort of project. I was also a great way to use up some of that ever growing scrap pile! (Don't forget there are now very few days left if you wish to get your hands on one of these sets as the offer ends on 29th Feb.) Hope you like them

March's Windmill Class

Hi there. I hope you are enjoying the sun. I have just been in the garden clearing some of the weeds where the little daffs and crocuses are just beginning to poke through. It looks like spring is on its way!! Time to think of Easter and Mothers Day.

With that in mind in the next class at the Windmill on Monday 14th March, we will show you how to make these lovely little acetate boxes. They can be used for lots of occasions and filled with almost anything!

You will be given a pack with enough materials to make 3 boxes and a couple of cards too, all for £10 including tea & biscuits. If you don't fancy that but want to bring your own project to do and just join in the banter and have a cuppa please feel free to join us. There will be a small charge of £5 to cover the cost of the hall and refreshments.

Februarys Windmill Class

Yesterday Helen and I held our monthly class at The Windmill, Littlehampton. We had a really pleasant afternoon with our ladies. They made this concertina album with The Jolly Holiday papers. Helen helped them with the album and we just left them all to do their own thing and I have to say they all looked really wonderful. Helen and I felt quite redundant!!

Next month's class is on the 14th March and I will post a picture of the project we will be making as soon as I recharged the camera batteries!!

Thank You notes

Here are some little cards I recently made for my Stampers Group. I used the Sweet Summer & So Happy for You stamp sets from the Sale a Bration offer, which is only available for another two weeks.

Another Year!

Well its just over a week since my birthday and time to pack away the cards, but I thought I would show you another one of my lovely homemade cards. This one is from Michelle who is hard at work preparing for Valentines Day in the Flower Shop in Wick. Dont forget to pop in and have a look at her wonderful selection of arrangements and flowers.
