Thank you card-Blooming with kindness

The last day of the year and it is pouring with rain on the south coast. I ventured out to Waitrose which was packed and now staying in for the rest of the day.
I made a few Thank you cards using the lovely Blooming with kindness stamp set. The bloom is beautiful and the set comes with 5 sentiments so is quite versatile .

Ho Ho Ho Santas on his way - or 9 Santas

Hi Ladies


Sorry I haven't posted for a while. We have had broadband issues  and I have been really busy crafting so not a lot of spare time.
We are going North tomorrow to spend Christmas with our eldest daughter and we are all having lunch with Felicity and John who are my daughters future in laws , so no cooking this year . I have just made  a Black Forest Trifle to take with us. There are going to be 9 for lunch so I have made table gifts to take with us.
Come take a look at what I have made:

They were made using the Stampin up cone die and then lots of different punches for the shapes for Santas face. They are just big enough to hold 3 Ferrero Roche so I hope everyone will enjoy them.
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas

Bags, Tags and Boxes Part 2

Good Evening Ladies
As promised yesterday , today I am posting further photographs of projects that the ladies did at our Stampin up event at Valley Park Community Centre last Saturday.




The ladies also made a treat box , but I can't seem to find the photograph of that so I will try to post that in my next post.
We always have a display table to show lots of different projects that the ladies could try. This month the table was obviously dedicated to Christmas.
Can you see the lovely Christmas wreath that Aly has made - isn't it gorgeous.
I seem to have been making Christmas cards for months but I think that I have about finished. I have made over 110 cards this year, 30 for my mother - in- law and 30 for my eldest daughter and then over 50 for me to send. I just need to write them which I want to get finished this week. In the new year I need to get going on the bulk making of wedding invites for my daughter who is getting married next August.

Love

Bags, Tags and Boxes

Hi Ladies
Yesterday we held our " Bags Tags and Boxes " at Valley Park Community Centre where we demonstrated projects that could be used for Christmas gifts. We had lots of projects for the ladies to do and we worked them quite hard because several of them were still with us nearly an hour after the event was due to finish. We either gave them too much to do or perhaps we talked too much - a bit of both I think, but they all seemed to enjoy themselves and all took home lots of goodies. I am going to show you a few of things we did in this post and will be back tomorrow to publish the rest, so please pop back tomorrow to see more lovely projects using the products from Stampin up.




I am sure that your family and friends would be pleased to have their Christmas goodies wrapped up with any of these projects that we made at the weekend.
The first crop of 2013 will be held on 26th January at Valley Park Community Centre when  the title for the day is "Butterflies, Birds and Bees" , we will be making projects using stamps and papers with this theme. If you would like further details or would like to join a lovely group of ladies please email me on:margaret@margaretjones.net
Please come back tomorrow when I will post some more of the goodies that we made.

Love
Margaret
