Tuesday Club make

Good Morning! Firstly, I wanted to let those of you who have been following my Strictly journey, know that I will be on BBC 2 tonight at 6.30pm in the first round of the Strictly Super Fan Quiz. Lots of people have asked me if I will be dancing and the answer is no, I am taking part in a national quiz to find Strictly’s Biggest Super Fan and tonight’s round is the Quarter Final against a lovely guy called Myles. I have bet so many wonderful people throughout this surreal process and am excited to see it tonight plus I’m a little nervous too!!! Do hope you can tune in and cheer me on!

So back onto crafting! Here is one of the makes from last nights Tuesday Club. I have to give a shout out to the lovely Caroline van der Straaten who kindly allowed me to CASE her design. This card uses the Envelope Punch Board and you literally make an envelope and then cut off one of the flaps and add an insert and a belly band!
I used traditional colours of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crumb Cake and Whisper White along with some of the paper from the Trim the Tree DSP stack. The Festival of Trees was my stamp set of choice for this card.

Love love love the Cherry Cobbler ribbon from the Autumn/Winter catalogue, its perfect for this project.
Hope you like todays make, all the supplies used are detailed below

Happy Birthday Miss Mollie

Yesterday my beautiful Niece, Mollie, celebrated her 1st Birthday! She actually woke up at our house as she was staying here on Friday evening so I got to see the Birthday Girl first thing in the morning and give her her Weetabix! I had to make her a special card and I must say I am more used to making cards for boys than I am making cards for little girls!
So I decided to make a diorama style card using So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Wisteria Wonder with a hint of Crumb Cake. My downline Sally Jo first inspired me to make this style of card, she makes them with such ease! I did enjoy making this even though I was out of my comfort zone, I’m just so used to boy cards! The great thing about the Zoo Babies stamp set is that you can make them look masculine or feminine just by changing the colours.
 My sister seemed really pleased with the card when they opened it at Mollie’s little tea party yesterday.
Hope you like my girlie make and I will be back later to update the Supplies link as I am in a rush this morning!
