Saleabration comes to an end ......................

Just a quick little post with another salebration card - using the Happy Moments stamp set.

I had designed a simpler form of this card for Barbara's guests to make at her recent workshop ( Kirsty thank you once again for your help ) and I later decided to step it up a little by using a roller design on the background, a little bit of ribbon and some glaze on the flowers ( which you can't see but it looks really pretty, I'm hooked ) - I then made 14 more quite quickly and used them as Thank You cards for those who had ordered at Barbara's party and my other Stampers 10 girlfriends - just so that they could see how easy it is to do a little more with a few extra supplies.

I know, I'm sorry, I have changed my blog background yet again and given myself back my original title of Cherry Hill Crafts but I am still, of course, A Stamp For All Seasons because that is what I feel Stampin! Up! gives me, a wonderful stamped image for all seasons.

PS The envelope never escapes lol.

Belle Toile - so quick and easy ......

When I need a card in a hurry - and that's often - I find that the background stamps are wonderful - creating impact and covering a large area at the same time - on this occasion I've used the Whimsical Words together with the oval scallop and the plain oval punches - just a little bit of Always Artichoke ribbon to match the cardstoke and ink used and voila it's finished.

I'll being putting more details about the punches on offer at the beginning of March - look out for it then.

Time for Tea

Actually I meant to show this to you all earlier in the month - my lovely crafty friend Jane makes the most amazing cakes each time she is a hostess for a Stampin' Up! party at her home, on this occasion it was the beginning of February - I managed to make myself a refreshing cup of fruit tea and arrange this gorgeous cake on a cute tray before I sat down to eat it - and yes, I was at home, shoes off - just before midnight after what was fabulous evening of crafting with friends lol.

As Sale-a-bration is drawing to a close Stampin' Up! have another wonderful offer to tempt us with starting in March .....................

Have you celebrated Sale-a-bration?

Although I haven't been writing about my doings I have been doing, honestly. The photo shows one of the Sale-a-bration designs that I have been using throughout some of January and into February - a very easy and cute easel card (not convinced that is the correct spelling !!) using Happy Moments and Vintage Labels - two of the more popular stamp sets from the choice of four on offer.

I have to let you know that there is a fabulous offer on the way for March - which I will be putting up tomorrow and which will be available from the beginning of March and just while stocks last - it's a punch that I feel we have all been waiting for ........................ see you tomorrow?
