Lovely Bubbly


I had a fabby time at Crafts U Love on Saturday, although i was a little surprised to find only 4 other cars in the carpark at 9.20am, when i got there (please see photo below of just the bargains i bought, a few other things did fall into my basket as well ;-) ).  Went to H's Christmas concert last night, although as he was on the back wall, with 5 rows in front, we hardly saw him !!

The teacher H had last year has a birthday on 21st December, so i thought i had better make her a card, as she is so lovely and we always have a laugh when we see her, she'll probably give me some ribbing for a cat image (as she has a dog), but i'm hoping i'll be forgiven, as it includes a bottle of Champagne ;-), the stamp is : Penny Black - 'Lovely Bubbly / 2099K' (although the name does remind me of 'Only Fools And Horses !!), the papers (are actually Xmas ones) : Echo Park - 'Merry Christmas', the banner : Die-namics - 'Fishtail Flags', turned round, once one side had been cut, the sentiment : LOTV, the star : Sizzix, the pearls are from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Moving Along With The Times - where the Challenge is 'December's Birthday's'

A Little Bit Crafty - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes, But Not Christmas'

Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Week No: 340 and a super sketch, that i will use again, as it's so suitable for my bigger PB images.

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Looks like you had a great time at the sale with plenty of goodies. I have the SB heirloom die that l have never used so l have just dragged it out - just need a bit of inspiration for it. Shame you could not see H but hope you enjoyed it anyway.
Lovely card such a sweetie.

Adorable card Sam - I am sure H's teacher will really appreciate it. I always feel sorry for people who have birthdays so close to Christmas because they get a little forgotten in amongst Christmas stuff- which makes your kindness and thoughtfulness in making one extra-special.

Nice little crafty stash too - I see you bought a PB stamp - you can never have too many of those of course LOL - I can't help myself - they are all wanting to hop into my shopping basket! Seriously though, that particular stamp is great for masculine cards.

Merry Christmas Sam & may 2015 bring you much joy. Thanks for your support throughout the year.
