Christmas Club

Hellooooo, hope you had a good rest this weekend. Before I do anything I need to let you know that I have ONE MORE PLACE available in the new Virtual Club so if you want to grab it please email me NOW> You can read more about it by clicking the SPREAD THE COST button at the top of my blog.

I arrived from Luca’s Party in London last night after 10pm and the first thing I did was unpack and  switch the Thermomix on to bake a cake for today’s club, ONE minute later my cake was happy in the oven while I got dressed in my jammies and watched Downtown Abbey as I missed it last week.  I did some fresh butter this morning and made the cake frosting which meant that with very little effort my ladies enjoyed a very fresh cake at today’s club. All in all it took me 15 minutes work from start to finish, oh and when I did finished my machine cleaned and dried itself hee heee love it. Sorry no photo but it was chocolate and delicious.

Ok want to see what we did at todays Christmas Club?

Four cards like always and I loved the designs, well I would say wouldn’t I, it was me that designed them.

First one using the Broadsheet alpha which is just amazing, I never loved an alpha set as much as this one

5 spice pork

Second one done in Night Of  Navy such a fabulous colour!!


It uses the current hostess set Punch pot Pourri and bird punch. We used the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder for this card.

The third card of the group was this one


This one you have seen on my blog before as is the make n take we had for Harrogate show. Contempo Christmas, Vintage Wallpapaer embossing folder, top note die( we used this die a LOT today)

And last one


Elegant Eggplant and Old Olive along with the season of Joy stamp set, it was good to ink this one up again I like it.

We all had so much fun again, I took my thermomix for a ride to the club and we started with fresh lemonade then I made some marmalade for the ladies to take home with the remnants of the lemons, YUMMY>

Right I am off as i have some Virtual Club orders to sort and place, hope to see you soon with some sneak peaks of new catalogue. Can you say E X C I T E D ?Open-mouthed smile till then big hugs xxx
