3D Convention swap...

This is what my 3D swap looked like before I put them altogether and finished them off. I love the colour combination of tempting turquoise, basic black and whisper white. I was a little unsure of what to complete for this swap and I didn't start it for weeks and weeks - so for ease with the travelling I haven't made a box but I have made a holder for the bookmark and the paper clip I have made and I have stamped the single flower from Whimsical Wings and i have used it a lot since I received it. This is one of the organised swaps I have joined in on ILWS with the demonstartors attending convention - NEXT WEEK! (am a bit excited now - LOL) Whimsical Wings is one of the hostess sets that you gain earn yourself by having a home workshop and being the hostess, as well as this beautiful stampset you will also have a minimum of £30.00 to spend on products depending on the total sales achieved at your workshop (interested - send contact me)
Once I had decided on what I was going to make I loved making these and hope my fellow swappees love them too. Anyway I must get back to making my general swaps as they are still not finished - I imagine I will be completing them on the plane!

I hope you like my colour combination and the beginnings of my 3d project!- Thanks for looking Debbi x x x

Christmas Swap...

I have organised a Christmas Swap on ILWS over the last few weeks the cards have to be in in the next few days... there was only one stipulation - Christmas themed from the current catalogue - This is a sneek peek of the cards I have created and I have had a lot of time on my hands this week being poorly, hence my choice for the image! and I hope the ladies in my group appreciate how much time it has taken me to paint the image! I will post a picture of the completed cards once they have been posted to the rest of the group!
I hope you like my sneek peek and thanks for looking! Debbi x x x

Animal Stories...

This is one of the new sets available from the latest Stampin' Up! catalogue and I love this set. I needed to make a card for my sons first birthday party with his new school friends (he's in nursery now in the afternoons) This was for a little girl and amazingly her favourite colour is pink! I stamped the image then inked around the edges of the image mounting this onto summer sun cardstock and then again onto pixie pink. the sentiment is from Birthday Best and I have decorated the top of the card with the pink striped grosgrain ribbon...
I hope you like the card - thanks for looking Debbi x x x

The First SU! Convention...

I am trying to get myself organised for the upcoming convention in Frankfurt which is the first of its kind in Europe and this has been so hard for me recently as for many weeks inspiraion seems to have leaked out of me! As you can imagine all the Demonstrators are very excited and I am no exception. I have finally decided on a theme for the cards that I am to make for general swapping and have made a start this morning! One of my good friends has said that she loves to see the progress of cards in the making so this is for her. Deb here is a sneak peek of what I will be taking with me - If I can decide on how to finish them. I have decided to go with a Bashful Blue theme using the Scandinavian stamp set as I love this colour and the stamp set is a new purchase and I wanted to test it out!
I hope you like what you see and there will be more to come I am making 50 in total, was hoping to do more but I think this is all I can manage unless I don't work until I get back from Frankfurt and someone else does all the housework, washing and cooking LOL!

Thanks for looking Debbi x x x
