These are the 2 I have made for the kids, the card shapes are some that we have been working on in classes.
This is Oliver's card which was made with insperation from the fabulous Bev's blog. I have been teaching side steppers in class, but when I saw this Mid Stepper on Bev's blog I decided I wanted to have a go at this.
This is Abbie's, I have also been teaching the Easel Card in class and thought it would be great for Abbie's card.

Sorry no cards from me at the moment, havent had chance to have a crafty session for a while. I even had to go and buy my Sister-in-Law and Brother's birthday cards from a shop last week, how bad is that!!!!!!.
I thought I would just show you a quick piccy of this months Cardmaking & Papercraft mag where I had the designer challenge and had to create 5 cards suitable for the month of November including a Firework card (which was a nightmare).
I am hoping to resume normal service into cardmaking as soon as I can, have had a pretty hetic few weeks with the shop and the opening. The weekend went well though and my open day was a big success, so a big thanks to all my customers who came and supported me in my new venture.

I fell in love with 2 gorgeous new stamps from Penny Black, so I had to make something with them. This card was originally supposed to go on the shop's inspiration blog, but I got carried away and added some things onto it which we dont sell. I dont want to put anything on the shop's blog with items we dont sell as I feel its unfair to the customers.
Image is Penny black and is called Hand Mailed, papers are Crafts-Too, Papermania shimmer dots & pearl brad, Craftwork Cards oval sentiment, Hobbycraft snowflake punch. The image has been matted using Nesties.
The other item I made is a little money holder, if you want to take a peak you will find it HERE.

Anyway thought I would show you the card I made for Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, Issue 68 comes out on the 10th and I had to make a card and tag using some papers they sent me. I chose to use a fabby little gorjuss girl and this is the outcome. Hope you like.
Next I need your help!!!!!! I recieved this image in a swap and would now like to buy the stamp. The problem is I cant find it anywhere, I thought it was a RAM design but have searched the Stampavie website to no avail. So if you know who is is by, what its called and where I can get it from please let me know.

Whilst sorting of my stuff, I came across this fab paper and embellishment pack which came free with a mag. So I decided to put it to good use at long last.
The images are Greetings Farm, Sugar Nellie & Messy Rabbit, flowers are Floral Doodles by petaloo and Papermania adhesive gems.
Finally here is a piccy of my little angel with her Nebuliser, she is such a star!!!!!.
As you can tell by her face, she is looking a little unwell at the moment, its so sad to see her so different from her normal self.
