I used Real Red, Brilliant Blue and Green Galore for the train and then stamped again in Basic Black, cut out the wheels and glued them onto the coloured train. The train is mounted on the track using dimensionals. The steam is stamped in Basic Grey. I used the Round Tab punch with Green Galore for the top of the tag and as an embellishment on the card. The sentiments are from the free Sale-A-Bration set Happy Moments.

I wanted this stamp set just for this stamp. Mellow Moss grass and touches of Real Red, Barely Banana and Creamy Caramel - how cute is this??? Got to now make more of these candles with all the images from the Queue Up hostess stamp set!!

I made this card on the evening out at Helen's (my upline). I wasn't going to post it as it is not one of my favourites, but here it is anyway!
Helen watched me with great curiosity as I punched holes in a piece of Bashful Blue cardstock and this is how it turned out. I wished I'd thought about where to put the holes first as you can't see many of them. The image is from the free Happy Moments stamp set (contact me to find out how to get your hands on it!) and coloured using Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa inks and Blender Pens. When I got home I added a piece of Basic Grey taffeta ribbon.

I was organising all the samples for my next party when I came across this little Fresh Cuts note that was done a while ago and I decided to use it to demonstrate 'Stepping Up'.
I used a Basic Black 14 cm square card and stamped the foliage along the edge in Whisper White, cut the back off the Fresh Notes, added a piece of Striped Grosgrain ribbon and popped it up on dimensionals. Voila!!

The mats behind the image were the squares I cut out of the centres of the Close to Cocoa base card and the Bashful Blue contrast card so nothing was wasted! A little Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon was tied around the edge and the small 'for you' sentiment was from another free SAB stamp set called Happy Moments tied around the ribbon with a little linen thread.

I braved the slippery roads to go and do a bit of stamping with my upline, Helen. I took with me Mellow Moss, Basic Grey, Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa card (and ink pads), the Polka Dot background stamp and the gorgeous Good Neighbours freebie Sale-A-Bration stamp set (contact me if you would like to find out how to get this set for FREE!!).
This is a card shape I love to use as it creates instant dimension. The house stamps from Good Neighbours were begging to be put on this style of card.
We had a great time ooohhhing and aaahhhing over each others creations, will post the others over the next few days!

My little girl had a spell of going backwards and forwards to the local A&E after burning both feet (don't ask) just a couple of days before Christmas, hectic Christmas filled with snow, family, gas fire condemned, sister had to have her cat put to sleep Christmas day, daugher with her 'indoor' scooter, visits up North, visits down South, etc, etc......
Yippee New Year, filled with snow, family, still no gas fire, new floors being fitted so no washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher, (these at the moment are stored in my craft room so I cannot get in it) school closures, grumpy daughter, and me starved of craft and adult company, and to make matters even worse I've started my diet!!!!!!! Oh and husband announces working away trips for next few months - GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!!
Phew................. anyway have lots of things planned when I can get into my craft room. Now where's the chocolate..........?
