Join the Poppy Parade .........

...... this is such a lovely sunshine colour and makes you feel happy just looking at it - this little set was put together using the Cottage Garden stamp set, matching Designer Series Papers which are aptly named Sunny Garden and the gorgeous In-Colour grosgrain ribbon and In-Colour cardstock Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz.

I love the little double card holder, which can be adapted to any size just by increasing the measurements accordingly - this small example for a 3 x 3 envelope can be made using only 1 sheet of A4 cardstock - the 'belly-band' can be made to look really pretty with the addition of ribbon and gems and cheats 'ribbon' - a very thin sliver of cardstock wrapped around a knitting needle to give it curl - handy when you want to co-ordinate your item but don't have the appropriate colour ribbon in your stash.

Hope you are all well in Blogland and many thanks for visiting - come back when you can - Bridgette

Ohhhh ... I'm delighted it is 2011 so Happy New Year to All

Just a quick little post as I was putting away all the Christmas cards I thought I would show you the one I made for my husband - I love the little bird punch and have designs on making him into a little Bluebird for Springtime and Valentine's Day but for now he is a little Robin.

Some will recognise the inspiration ..... yes, it's the little corner bookmark - we made a whole selection of items using the little bird and so I thought I would just expand the idea.

Don't forget Sale-abra-tion - the sets are delicious and better than on the screen, trust me, I'm your friendly Stampin' Up Demonstrator !!!!
