Bliss ‘Believe’ card & Nursery

February 5, 2011 at 10:43 am 10 comments

Happy Saturday! I’m still lounging around at 10:20! Shocking! Had a late one last night- an absolutely fab bunch of girls came round for an evening of crafting using the Sale-a-bration sets. This is one of the cards that we made and we did ‘rock and roll’ stamping, watercolouring and generally made a mess! This is only a teeny card but fairly quick to do using blender pens and two inks.

I’ll show you the other card next post. I’ll be back hopefully on Monday to announce the winner of the blog candy.  Next Friday I’m doing some training for my team and then straight on to my craft class. We’re doing some projects using chipboard and there are still places if you fancy coming. There’s going to be a bit of daubing, sanding, covering and stamping. We’ll make some really pretty projects and everything is included for £13 and we have a good laugh! Email me to book your place.

I’m shouting instructions to one of my kids whilst I’m typing as she wants to bake cupcakes AND cover them in chocolate ganache! (Not wanting to be outdone by her older sister!) Sound familiar? I’m trying to stay out of the kitchen because it was relatively clean and now I dread to look.

I went to visit a nursery this week with my littliest. It always makes me sad when I do this- once they go to school you lose a little bit of them! He was pensive and a little reluctant but then wanted to stay and play (which we couldn’t do because we were only visiting!). I asked him after what he thought about it. His response? ‘Horrible and brilliant!’ Hmm.. not sure what to make of that response! His answer later on just regressed to ‘horrible’, so we’ll have to see how that goes. The nursery looked like a lot of fun and I’m sure he’ll love it once he goes.

I need to go and inspect the ganache- we’ve got to take 40 cakes to a baptism we’re going to later. I think actually I might take the card we did last night for one of the girls getting baptised- it seems very appropriate!!

Card recipe;

Cardstock- Very vanilla, Marina mist, Pear Pizzazz. Pearls. Marina mist ribbon, Ink- marina mist and Pear Pizzazz. Circle punch, corner rounder  and spiral punch. Bliss SAB set and ‘Just Believe’ set (sentiment).
