Gorgeous Top Note boxes

I totally love these Top Note boxes. They are very versatile - fill them with yummy chocolates, cake of soap, jewellery - anything you like - what a delightful gift for a friend.
I only have 3 to show you as my photographic skills (not that brilliant as they are) went out the window. The 'girls' made a small greeting card to match, and I think went home very happy with themselves.

Here are the 'girls' hard at work constructing their boxes.
If you would like to organise a class, please contact me anytime.

Wedding Card for my friend

On Saturday, we attended the wedding of my dear friend Diane. We have been friends for a very long time and it was such an honour to be invited.
I had helped her and her 2 gorgeous daughters to make up her invitations and gorgeous little chocolate 'mini sunny boys' (that's what I call them!) to be given to each guest. She wore a beautiful suit of teal, chocolate and beige and even had a tie made for her man in the same material. Her girls wore teal also - really fitting colours for a garden wedding. It was one of the most relaxing and fun weddings we've been to in a long time.
We wish you and Steve a long and happy life together my friend.

A little birdie told me

Don't you just adore the Aviary stamp set which was available in the Summer Mini? It has the potential to lend itself to so many cards and scrapbook pages. I wasn't sure whether I really liked this card, but when two of my lovely class attendees told me they loved it - I thought, what the heck, I really do think I like it after all! Of course that gorgeous Two-Step Bird punch leaf allows so many uses.

Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue is here!

View the 2011
Mini Catalogue online

Hi everyone,
So sorry it's taken me this long to come back to my blog. Have been, as my hubby would say, 'flat out as a lizard on a log'!
Have been working full time, and  getting over the work!!! Not as young as I once was!
This week I held 2 card workshops here at home in my little 'studio'  with some of my delightful lovelies. I hope you enjoyed as much as I did.

As you can see, we have introduced the Autumn-Winter Mini catalogue which has so many gorgeous products for you to drool over. The catalogue runs until 31 July and if you'd like your very own copy, just contact me and I'll mail one out to you.

Am out to the kitchen to cook up a big pot of chicken soup as I'm trying to get over an annoying cold. My family have always believed in the amazing healing qualities of chicken soup; it has magic in it!! Until later....
