More Tea for Two ..and some cakes as well
Last Friday I was priviledged to host my Tea for Two class and around the table we had a set of very talented and crafty women. The class included Stampin' UPs designer series paper, Tea for Two and a selection of cardstock and ribbon and instructions for making several cards and a Tea Caddy. However everyone always likes to put their own twist on things and here is a picture of a georgeous pen pot created by the lovely Tracyann. It's for her daughters room and I hope it takes pride of place. It really shows how versatile the tea for two designer paper is as the look is completely different to my prototype.

We also had yummy cupcakes made by Rebecca from Dolly Train cakes .... well when I say we, I really mean everyone else - I'm on a diet and showed remarkable resilence in saying No. I hope the scales reward me.
 Here's a couple of pictures to whet your appetities.

Happy crafting everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day
Here's a CASE I have made from the spring/summer mini catalogue. I've loved using the Hearts a Flutter framelits and stamps and they will be ideal for lots of occasions as well as Valentine's Day.
Despite all my card making we're not very good at actually observing special dates ourselves. I may however give this one to Mike - it might make him feel a tad guilty for not getting me anything.
In fact we are quite shocking at remembering our wedding  anniversary - it's usually while we are on summer holiday so you're not really keeping a note of the date. Perhaps this year will be different as it's 20 years - I was hoing to re-do our honeymoon which was to West Coast America but it's a bit pricey with the children so perhaps it can wait until 25 years when they are older and won't want to come with us.
My evening isn't going to be very romantic either as it's a case of the usual Mum's taxi and then off to weight watcher's to see how I have done on my first week.
Whatever you do today I hope you enjoy it and that it comes from the heart !

Tea for Two

Tea for Two
The new Spring/Summer catalogue launched on 1st February and I adore the tea for two designer series paper. I'm hoping to share this with lots of people and have a class planned including a tea caddy, cards plus lots of extra paper and card to take home. See my Classes page for more details.

Here are the photos of my samples.
