ONE WHOLE WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been away for! Time does fly and I seem to have lost a whole week. We are less than a week away from the StampWithUs online classes so the heath intensifies as you can imagine, loads to organize and set up before next Friday. The projects are looking FABULOUS even if I say so myself and I only hope our participants will think the same. I have to say I was, in fact the three of us were amazed at the amount of you joining us but then it shouldn't really be that surprising as you do get such fabulous value for money. We have added more information about the classes on HERE and I have also designed a sweet all in one box, as a Free bonus project for all of you that have been supporting Stamp With Us by joining in our challenges and leaving such encouraging comments. You are truly LOVELY thank you . So here it is enjoy and don't forget to post a link to my blog if you have tried it out.
You can download the pdf HERE.
My next card is one I have made for our current recipe challenge on SWUS . Use two pattern papers, four brads, and some ribbon.
Now when I started this I had a different looking card in mind and I am sorry to tell you that it looked nothing like this. LOL
Mr and Mrs stamp set, gold brads, Very Vanilla wide grosgrain ribbon, Washington Apple and So saffron designer paper. My image was coloured using Pumpkin Pie and Apricot Appeal SU markers.

I also made a card for a colour challenge over on ILWS hosted by Kate. This was the inspirational picture
And this was my interpretation, a card made for the lovely Julie one of my Passionettes to celebrate her recent promotion.

Regal Rose, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock, Always Artichoke narrow grosgrain ribbon and a touch of Bashful Blue sponged behind the two step flowers and leaves from the Happiness Always hostess level 3 stamp set. Oh and I caved in and got some Nesties, actually I believe those are called Megabilities. I will see you all tomorrow as I have an important post to make. Hugs Monica xxx
