First Card Swap ......

Hello again - I've been busy furthering the process of turning my stash-full craft room into a Stampin' Up! haven - with just a touch of Sizzix - but I don't feel too bad about that as the Big Shot from Sizzix features so heavily in the US catalogue - I only wish it would make its way here officially - perhaps in the new catalogue? - oh well, a girl can hope lol.

Guess what? I took part in my very first card swap and I have put a photo of my offering at the top of this post - but I fear that my style is too simple but I shall wait to see how the other cards are made before I start beating myself up - I only had to make 9 samples in total and in a little while I will get a return envelope with 9 different samples in it - so if I am allowed to I will photograph the collection and let you see.

I am currently working on additional cards for a school fete that is on 20 June and I will post some of the designs that I will be making with the sets that I have available to me - I am doing this event with my dear friend Lou who has been, like all my crafty friends, so supportive of my efforts to make my SU venture viable - Lou will also be making some cards using only SU products ready to sell on the day - I am looking forward to it and I must remember to take a photograph of our little pitch before the event gets underway to show you all.

I shall put the finishing touches to a card using the Soft Summer set from the mini catalogue and post for you tomorrow - please come back when you have a moment to see if you like it.



  1. These are lovely, especially the colours you have used - soft and pretty x

  2. Hi Bridgette.

    Love the simplicity of this card. The colours are fab. You did a good job. Sounds like fun doing the school fete. I once did two fetes, selling plants...I'm into gardening.. absolutely loved it. Such a buzz. Good luck and I'll hopefully see you & lou soon.

    hugs Debbie xx

  3. fab cards bridgette love the design, hope the stand goes well and you sell loads.


Is there anyone out there? Your comments let me know that I am not alone in my 'happy space' - which is very reassuring. Thank you.
