Merry Monday No. 5

Good morning on this Merry Monday and white rabbbits too.  It is 12.2 degrees outside and it isnt 5.30am yet, lovely.

Onto the handmade Christmas card that we received from Jane M which is lovely. 
Thank you Jane.  This has been made with Lovely as a Tree stamp set from Stampin' Up! which has to be my all time favourite stamp set as well as the most popular one.  I am in the process of getting a Lovely as a Tree crafting evening organised where we shall make 10 cards using this stamp set.  As soon as its all ready, I will put details of where and when, here on the blog.

Today Katerina starts her Exams for 'The Bar' over in Cyprus.  She has been revising since the end of October, for at least 8 hours every day.  She has to take 10 exams (today there are 2) over the next 2 weeks.  If she passes 7 of them, she can retake the remaining 3 in June.  If she passes 6 or less, she has to retake all 10 again in September, yikes.

Yesterday Christiana flew to Cyprus for a few weeks for a bit of warmth and sunshine (fingers crossed).  It was very strange not to have her to talk to last night and I know that I am going to miss her company.

Last week was Crafty Week and what a smashing week it was.  It was so lovely to catch up with everyone and we made some wonderful Stampin' Up! projects.

Here is one of the cards we made, for the men in our lives

This was made by inking up, with a brayer, the World Traveller Embossing Folder in Sahara Sand and then running it with the card inside, through the big shot.  Papers from Going Places Designer Set were cut up and placed under a stamped image from the Going Global stamp set.  The sentiments we used were from various different stamp sets. 

The next Crafty Week in in February, there is one place available on Tuesday 23rd however, if you fancy a crafting afternoon on Thursday 18th February please let me know.  If there are at least 4 people we can have an afternoon of making a couple of cards, a couple of tags and a lovely little box for Easter.

Did you know that the Stampin' Up! Sale a Bration continues throughout February?   This is where you get FREE products for every £45 you spend and there are some wonderful new crafting items available in the new catalogue.  If you would like to find out more, see some of the products or come along to have a look at some of the cards we have made with Stampin' Up! goodies, I am having a Tuesday at Traceys next week on 9th February.  Kettle will be on from 2-4 and again from 6.30 - 8.30 so please, feel free to call in.  If you would like directions please give me a ring on 01332 721877.

Well I had best get a wiggle on and jump in the shower, got to do a few hours in the proper job today.  Thanks for having a read and I hope you have a wonderful day  x
