Staple Hill School Summer Fayre

Another Saturday in the summer and another school fayre where I can sell my cards.  This time the weather was not the hoped for sunny day, so we were all inside.  At least I didn't have to battle with the wind trying to blow my cards across the school field!  Here are just a few of the cards on my stall.

As the fayre was the day before Fathers Day, I made some cards and little gifts for this occasion.  The notepads for Dads proved popular.  I love the little tool brads to decorate the notepads, as they went perfectly with the tool embossing folder I used.

Lavinia Stamps Challenge – # 4

After spending the week completing an 8 x 8 scrapbook for my daughter, I've finally found time to make a card for the June Lavinia Stamps challenge.  This month the theme is 'Lovely Lavender'.  It was lovely making a card using my favourite colour and I decided to have a go at making an easel card for the challenge.  I usually use a black ink pad with the Lavinia fairy silhouette stamps, so it took me slightly out of my comfort zone to experiment with a different colour.

You can see other 'Lovely Lavendar' cards using the Lavinia stamps here.
