Snowflake Friendship Card and Pinkies Weekend

Today, I have a card that combines the Curvy Dies with the beautiful Snowflake Splendor Suite. The papers are beautiful and I love the mix of blues and purples. This was one card based on the suite that I had designed for a class which sadly didn’t go ahead.

This weekend I took part in the Pinkies Team Weekend and over the next few posts I will be sharing some of the amazing projects that were created for us. Team leader Michelle Last put on an amazing weekend of crafting and chat (despite the fact that she was still recovering from Covid) and we all had a fabulous time. Today’s projects were designed by Kim Price. They are a beautiful Christmas organiser which contained a covered notepad, Christmas Card list and Christmas tags (I haven’t finished those yet) and a lovely wreath made with a polystyrene base and covered with strips of Designer Series Paper. I changed the colour of the wreath to match my decor as Kim’s used the same beautiful First Frost designer series paper as the organiser. Kim’s Christmas organiser had a beautiful snowglobe on the front, but unfortunately I realised I don’t have anything to go in a snowglobe 😢 I will definitely be making another organiser for Birthdays 😀 Please go and visit Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Kim Price (handmadebykim.co.uk) to see all her beautiful projects.

Until next time, happy crafting

Weekly Challenge 3 – One Sheet Wonder

Been a strange few days. My daughter developed a cough, but getting a test was easier said than done, it took us four attempts 😆. The whole family had to self-isolate, but thankfully her test came back negative. To be honest as much as I love my family, I am glad that they can all go back to school, college and training. Three autistic adult family members and a teenage boy at home with 3 PlayStations, an Xbox, a laptop, an iPad and various phones going at once, the Wi-Fi struggles and costs a fortune in electricity, not to mention the noise, which even the sound sensitive ones among them don’t seem to notice. Wrong sort of sound 😆

The challenge this week is a one sheet wonder. I have decided to turn mine into cards.
