Pixies Snippets challenge week 230

Had a little crafting break last week as I need to catch up on other things and also we had a few days away. 

I had already made this pleated card a couple of weeks ago but it never got posted so this is my entry for this week Pixies Snippets Challenge 

The pleated paper is a lovely way to use up all those bits of DP, everthing on my card is from my snippets box...DP is an old old Stampin Up one..the embossing is also a S.U. embossing folder..

Enjoy the rest of your weekend..

Fishing Birthday...

It was our friend John's birthday on Tuesday...John loves his fishing so it had to be a fishing card, I should have taken another photograph as this one isn't brilliant...
The image wa sent to me by a friend so I dont know where it came from, I used S.W. Dotty background and little bit of ribbon and the embellishments I've had for a very long time in my box...

The weather has certainly changed for the better we've got a lovely sunny day down here in Somerset...hope the sun is shining where you are

I wont be posting for a few days now as I have a few busy days ahead...

LOTV teenager...

I finally got around to colouring one of my new LOTV teenager cards...I find cards for difficult to make but these are super images, this image could be one of my granddaughters as she seems to prefer laying on the  the floor when using her tablet.....

My white base card seems to have disappeared into the background....papers are from LOTV border punch is a Martha Stewart one.

We have lovely sunshine this morning which makes a change from the snow, hail and rain we've had over the past few days..

Stampin UP Extravaganza Day....

Yesterday we had another Stampin Up Extravaganza Yesterday with the lovely Jenny Moors from Stamping Moments
The stamp set we were given was the Balloon Celebration set and here's what we made with with it.... 
 A fabulous exploding Gift  box.. the little box in the middle where you pop your  gift so really its and card a gift box all in one.
We also used the Happy Birthday Die set.....

 I just love the colours we used they looked gorgeous against the black.

 Our first pop out card  using matching DP and the Hip Hop Horray die from the Birthday Birthday set.

 Pop out card Number 2......using stampsfrom Party With Cake stamp set
 Just loved this little cake box we made, I loved the little bow as it laid flat and of course we made the rose to go on the top..
 Lovely fancy fold card......
 This little birthday album was fun to make using stamps from the Grateful punch set... ...lots of die cutting and punching but it was so pretty when opened out.
It was a fabulous day crafting with everyone (33) of us , we all worked hard to get our projects finished but the person who worked the hardest getting everything prepared for us.... Jenny and we are so lucky to have such a talented lady, thank you once again Jenny for another great day and fabulous projects.  Jenny's mum Sue always comes and looks us regarding food and the kitchen so thank you Sue.....and we are already looking forward to our Christmas Extravaganza in October..
