World Card Making Day 2013

Big hello to everyone wherever you are.

Happy World Cardmaking Day!!!!  Hope you've enjoyed making a card or two.

I have made a few and thoroughly enjoyed it too.

Here is my take on the challenge at Scrapbook And Cards Today.

The challenge was to use stickers, chipboard, twine, along with 1 envelope, 2 cardstock, 3 patterned papers to create a "thank you" card.

So here it is

Hope you have a great week!!!! xo Luv Sandie

Great night had by all!!!!

Here I am sending everyone a big wave and saying hi.

I have been SO busy with my new venture Sandie's Place - running all sorts of classes.

Tonight I taught some lovely ladies the Reverse Canvas class -Ang, Stacey, Monique and Nicole - sending out a big wave to Kristyne who couldn't make it. It was a pleasure to meet you all and join in the fun.  I hope your canvas looks great in your home in that special place.

Look forward to seeing you at the next one.

Take care.

Feeling Sketchy Challenge

Over at Feeling Sketchy they have a sketch challenge.  So I just so happened to be "feeling sketchy" so I joined in the challenge.

Here is my take on the sketch - I have altered it slightly by adding a large bunting. I used up some scraps from some cards I made during the week.

Thanks for popping in.

Have a great week.

Craft Queen

I was lucky enough to play with the gorgeous Graphic 45 papers to create these cards for a card kit that is released this month at Craft Queen

If you're looking for something special for your mum this Mothers Day - be sure to pop into Nicoles shop as there are hundreds of things - I know I'd love some of the many beautiful ribbons.

Happy creating.

It's all happening................

Sorry I've been away.

Kinda been a bit busy getting things underway to run classes from home.  Very excited.

You can "like" and follow me on Facebook too

Had my first class yesterday and it was great.  Have to say I was a little anxious to start with - such a lot of undertakings to get the room up to a workable area but I was so happy with the end results thanks to my lovely family for all their efforts and my lovely friends Lisa and Cherine for their ongoing help, support and friendship.

Here is a snapshot of the girlies

I was so excited to have everyone around for a play.

Next class is tomorrow so I am getting kits ready again.

If you would love to join in the fun, just leave a comment and I will get in contact with you.

Happy creating.
