Gosh no sooner do I fill one club or share then I get a request to do another one!! I can't keep up with you all !!! LOL
I have had a request to set up an Su Marker and Stampin Spot club.
This club requires 4 people (I already have 1) and only runs for 4 months.
Each month I will order the Full Marker set and a set of each of the Stampin Spot mini ink pads (12 in each set). This will be divided between the 4 people and you will receive 12 Markers from the same colour family and a set of Stampin Spots from the same colour family as your markers! (With me so far?)
Now because the monthly total of orders I place will be over £15o we will qualify for a free Level 1 stamp set and also £15 to spend in the catalogue. So each of the months 1 person will get these benefits.
When the club finishes you should all have the full 48 markers in their storage container and 4 sets of Stampin Spots (please note there is only one set in the photo!

I have had this set a couple of weeks and not had a play yet so as there are a lot of my friends having babies recently it was the perfect time to use it!!
I have CASED this card from the Stampin' Up! catalogue, see page 29. I find the catalogue a great source of inspiration for card layouts as well as being great to flick through while having a cuppa!!!
The colour combo is Bashful Blue, Whisper White and Close to Cocoa.
The stamp set is Nursery Necessities and I have used the Nursery Letters wheel, trimmed with Bashful Blue Double Stitched Grosgrain and used the Scallop Edge Punch.
Hope you like!

I love the Sketch Saturday challenges, they really inspire me to make cards!!
I am back on with brown on my cards again, I cant seem to stop using it!!!! The colour combo is So Saffron with Chocolate Chip and Close to Cocoa with Old Olive for the leaves. The papers are Tea and Crumpets and the sentiment is from the Level 1 Hostess Set Best Yet. I have distressed the edges with my cutting tool set and used chalks around the edge to give an aged look. The stamps are of course the lovely Rose is a Rose set. This is a gorgeous set, perfect to give or receive as a Christmas pressie. I have added a Gift giving leaflet to my sidebar. Please do contact me if you would like to purchase any Christmas presents from Stampin' Up! Don't forget my Wish List service too!!!
Thats all for now

Don't you just love that Coca Cola advert with the Santa on the big truck!! I always know Christmas is getting closer when you start seeing it on TV. Havent seen it yet but I am sure its only a matter of time!!!
On Friday I went to my lovely friend Anna's house to do a spot of Christmas crafting, Stampin' Up! style!!
When we arrived they was a smell of homemade muffins in the air!! Yummy!!! I had to partake in 1 or 2 just to be polite!!!
Next is a close of of a gift bag. I got the instructions for this from Monica on In Love With Stamping and I have made quite a few now. Its very easy once you know how!! I will be making these as teacher gifts this Christmas I think!!! Maybe filled with some choccies!! Papers used are from the retired set Dashing, still available while stocks last.

These last couple of weeks have been really busy for me Stampin' Up! wise, which is fab!!!
On Tuesday evening I went over to the lovely Elaine's house and did a class with a lovely bunch of ladies and we have a great night!
We used the gorgeous and quite understated Pocket Silhouettes stamp set, a perfect set for making smaller notelet style cards.
You will have seen pictures of one I made a couple of weeks ago. I had problems finding envelopes to fit inside it so had to re-design the whole thing from a sheet of 12x12. The cards measure 10.5 cms so you can make 2 from a sheet of A4.
The papers used are Tea and Crumpets and the colour combination is Always Artichoke, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, and you guessed it, Chocolate Chip!!!
Have a great weekend

ONE PLACE LEFT IF ANYONE WANTS IT!!
Something a little different from me today. Religious cards are not something I tend to send but I can appreciate why people would want to send them so I have come up with 2 designs using the new Christ is Born set. Its a simple set, focusing on the sentiments rather than images.
