cute cards at Christmas card Club

 Hello there! Well another fortnight has rolled around and I am now officially broken up for the summer holidays - very excited about that as school is becoming a bit of a chore - infact I have handed my notice in and will finish at October half term - can't wait - I will need to look for something else to do though that can wait until September!

Christmas Card Club this fortnight is all about cuteness - cute christmas. I have stamped 4 cards and recycled two this time!

These are the 4 stamped cards and I have used stamps from Hobby Art - one of these is destined for my friend Shelagh who has a dog not dissimilar to the one in the picture. Below are my recycled cards - I have even recycled one that Margaret sent last year - thanks again Margaret!

These are the ones from my mum - both used a hunkydory card kit!

All super cute - I am looking forward to seeing what the ladies from Christmas Card Club have made this time around!

Big hugs and a happy Sunday to you!

fancy fold cards at Christmas card club

 Hello there - well I'm chasing my tail again and getting things made at the very last minute - this time I've at least got the excuse that I was away with lucy in Oxford. A lovely bit of nostalgia for me and a chance for lucy to see where her mum and dad first met.

So here are my makes - I used recycled cards and made them into fancy fold cards - two easels and two z cards.

Not the easiest to photograph but above are the z fold cards...and below the easels.

Mum made three cards this time... the first two used John Lockewood stamps and dies

and the final one was made using the same John Lockewood stamps and dies plus sue wilson tree dies.

Pretty fancy that bottom one isn't it?

I hope you have a good week!
Big hugs

never grow up!

 Hello there!

Well its been a busy week and now here I am at Countryview Crafts again with another travel challenge post. 

This is made using a piece of map that I have coloured and a stamped image from IndigoBlu. I have simply coloured the image using clean colour pens. 
You have lots more time to join up to the challenge which you can find here.
Never know - you might win a £20 voucher to spend in store!
Good luck!
Hugs Rachel xx

Travel at Countryview Crafts

 Hello there! 1st July! How lovely! Time for a new challenge at Countryview challenges where the theme is travel. Today I have a twofer train travel post.

Both cards were made using Hobby Art stamps, coloured using clean colour pens.

The theme is very broad so why not use this opportunity to stock up on some travel themed makes?

You can link up your project - and get full details here.

Have a great day!
