Something Different


How was your weekend? The weather has been really nice hasn't it. I haven't had much chance to sit out in it but it's a nice feeling seeing the sun out. Thank you for all your lovely comments and cards lately. It really does keep me going.

Something abit different for you today. I had been asked to make a card for a lady who is celebrating 60 years of being a nun. That's her Diamond Jubilee. My initial thought was ' What on earth I am I going to do?' Well after abit of erming and doing this is what I came up with.

What do you think? I have used my own card stock for the base and then layered with some retired card Barely Banana and Ballet Blue. The stampset I used was Special Blessings. I used Night of Navy ink pad for the colour. The ribbon is also retired Stampin' Up stock. And you know me it's not quite the same without abit of girly. The Basic Pearls have saved the day again.

So on that note I am off to sort my tea out,

Thanks for looking

Jem Swap


Just a quicky.

I realised that I hadn't posted the swap I made for the Jems swap for the new mini catalogue. This swap was made using the Hope and Strength stamp Set. This set has been released for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. For every set that Stampin' Up sell they will donate £1 to the foundation.

I used Crumb Cake for the main with Pretty in Pink for the touches. I have stamped the H with Melon Mambo. You can only just see but I have stamped the butterfly wing just to give a bit of detail. I have used the fabulous new Seam Binding in Baja Blue, and I wouldn't be me if I didn't put a bit of bling on now would I.

So off to cook tea now. Hope you like. Thanks for looking.

Bad Lynda.


Sorry for not posting for a while, where has the time gone. Before I knew it a whole week has passed before I know it.

Today I have had a great day. I have spent the day with my lovely Stampin' Up sisters, and 'Mummy' Jules. We have made some great projects for the new mini catalogue. I will get around to showing you them soon. There are some amazing great products in the mini including THE BIGSHOT--whoo hoo. And just wait till you see the fabulous dies and embossing folders.

Last week I held a class with my lovely ladies. You remember the card organiser I made? Well that's what they made too. We used the DSP Paper stack in the brights. It was great to see them in all sorts of different colours.

Don't they look great? I will have to go and do my own range of colours now.

I thought I would show you a Thank you card I made for a consultant who helped me so much during my doing the course. It is made using the Itty Bitty Bits stamp set which is one of the fabulous new things out of the catalogue. The colour combo is Rose Red. Pear Pizzaz and So Saffron. The ribbon is Satin Daffodil Delight. You may be also able to see that I have used some little Itty Buttons on the card that just finish it off.

Just one last thing before I go. I know, you don't hear from me for ages then I can't shut up!!!

I thought I would show you a picture of Lauren when she was going to do her work experience. She worked at Leeds Registery Office and ushered on some weddings too. She absolutely loved it but how grown up does she look?

So Iam definately going now. Have a good week.
