Something for the fella's..

Today I'm off on a jolly with the lovely Sheila, so I've written this post and scheduled it for you all. I am off to a Stampin Up training day down in Sheffield and I'll be sure to come back tomorrow to share all the gossip!!

So.... Golf - how's about that?!

The last card for the special orders was another 40th card with the theme of Golf, and did you guess that from the sneaky peek from yesterday?

Here's the actual card that I made... well, more like a booklet actually. lol.


I say it was more like a booklet because there are around 6 pages in it. Kay wanted to have somewhere to write in, and somewhere to put money in , so I made a special little hideaway for the pennies and a double page for the writing, and of course I needed an acetate front for the golfer!

I had borrowed some stamps from Sheila, but thought this looked more apt for the occasion.

Kay had also wanted the words 'Uncle' and 'Brother' on it, so those were cut on the sizzix and finished off with a white gel pen to brighten it a little.

On the back of the acetate panel was this - another couple of layers of the golfer.
Now isn't this cute?


The designs are from La Pashe, and these decoupage sheets are so different to anything else you can get. Jak Heath is a great crafter too, and uses quite a bit of SU stuff, so I always nip on over to take a peek at what she's upto.. some great ideas!

This card was another success when I dropped them all off on Friday last week.. she loved them all. More card orders due in April. Hehe.


Tomorrow's card is a great suprise! I had a crafty morning over at Sheila's house on Monday with a very nice lady called Chris. We had a right laugh, and I got to drool over Sheila's craft room - honestly!

Organised chaos apparantly - but here's me thinking I need to clear my stash!!

There was more in that room than I own in my entire shed! lol. I did happen to borrow a couple of great stamps, and gave Chris a hand to make a card. I'll show you that tomorrow. lol.

So.. until then, happy crafting - and don't forget our Workshop event over in Carcroft on the 24th March. Just let us know if you'd like to be added to our list.
