Butterfly Anniversary

Taking a picture of my baubles didn't fare so well so I will return to those another day!

This card is a commission I did recently.

It uses Stampin' Up! supplies but some of them are now retired - including the rather lovely paper I'm afraid.

All the butterfly stamps and dies are still available though and I've used the colours of Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry to stamp and cut them.

A Teeny Tiny Sentiment with punches and some thread, lace, pearls and an embellishment to finish.

White Christmas

This is a zoomed in pic of my tree on the day - I shall stage another photo shoot at the weekend so you can have a better look at the baubles.

I still wanted to add a few more to the tree but it looked ok and I did sneak a couple more in the early hours the night before the display!

Quilling Regional Display

The Quilling Guild AGM and Annual Display has been and gone.  It was a great success and I thought I'd need a few days off quilling but I am actually all inspired and raring to go again after seeing such great creations and ideas at the weekend.

I have many photos to sort but thought I'd share the regional table that I assisted with.

The ladies from the Woolavington group did a great job in providing decorations so we could decorate all these trees.

I made some white snowflakes and put them in baubles which are all on the white twig tree - I'll add a clearer picture of these another day and get some close ups of the decorations.

With some decorated presents, cards and 3D figures the table looked lovely.
We came a very close second which I'm not sure if I wanted to know or not!!

Quilling Display

Lots of commissions going on currently that I will start to share next week.
You can read about one of my recent projects over on JillStampsUp today (as previewed in pieces last time).

As, of course, there is quite a bit of quilling going on currently.

This Saturday 19th September is the Annual Display of Quilling hosted by The Quilling Guild at the Digby Hall in Sherborne (DT9 3AA).

We are open to the public from 12.30 to 5pm - do pop along and have a look at the great displays, competitions and be tempted by the traders.

We also have tea, coffee, cake and light refreshments available.
Admission is £1 and accompanied children are free.

Busy, busy ...

A quick picture from the chaos!

Friday night I popped across to Woolavington for us to assess how the regional table is looking for the AGM and Saturday morning Butterfly Bright in Sherborne kindly hosted my pop-up demo/make and take.   This picture is from their Facebook page, thanks to everyone that popped in (and I look forward to seeing your creations Jose):

It's a super shop selling fabric, wool, cottons etc but also some gorgeous hand made goodies - do pop in and say hi.

They have kindly put my picture in the window to advertise the Annual Display too:

Like I don't have enough to do I have today finished off some samples and made up packs for the girls who I hope are coming to Crafty Bunch this week:

I really liked the project so I hope the girls do too.

All this before a well deserved relaxing and entertaining evening at the theatre to see The Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain who are fabulous.

And finally ...

... the last few thank you's!

After doing the other cards in 2 different colour ways I had to do something a little different but not too snazzy as there were some time constraints!

I used the SU Sheltering Tree set again for the bike and made these:

The framelits and sentiment stamp are also from SU.

A bit of cutting out involved but the bike is really easy to stamp - even if I did have a pile to do!

All cycling thank you cards now done hopefully.
