End of Year Nursery Summer Fete Raffle Prize


No I didn’t win it… I donated it.  Unfortunately, they lady that won it did so as I was off dealing with my little ones and had left before I got back to meet her. 

So if you are the lucky winner of this gorgeous (even if I do say myself) hamper, Congratulations!!! And please do get in touch and let me know what you think of all your new craft goodies.

If anyone is wondering, the “basket” is actually a fabulous “fold down box/drawer like item” that is from IKEA.  I remember when I first bought one I rang my friend who was after something similar and described the design as “Striped Grosgrain meets Seeing Spots, in Whisper White and somewhere in between Old Olive and Certainly Celery”!  It’s funny how so many items are now described in a Stampin’ Up way.

In the hamper was an Stampin’ Pad, Stampin’ Pastels, Stampin’ Dimensional’s,  Circle Punch, Cardstock, Die cuts from the Petal Party Simply Scrappin’ Kit, A catalogue and a stamp set.  Needless to say the nursery sold quite a few raffle tickets.

Until Next time….

My Son’s End of Year Nursery Summer Fete

Yes it was my sons end of year Summer Fete this week. 
First they had sports day, followed by the Graduation Ceremony for all the little ones going off to School Nursery or Reception class.  It was such fun to see the children taking part in Sports Day with all the races they did and the medals they each received at the end.  And then the Graduation Ceremony where all the leavers got their cap and rolled up certificate.  At the end of photo’s they all threw their caps in there air – it was so lovely to see!  My little one has one more year there so I will save up the hankies for his Graduation Ceremony before he goes onto “Big School”.
So onto the Summer Fete par of the day.  As usual parents were asked for toys, games, unwanted gifts etc.  Well after passing on some bottles of sparkling wine and such left over from our daughters Naming Ceremony, I got down to the fun of making some little gifts for the raffle.  The inspiration came from Monica Gale's Blog.  I just took it a little further and added the notebook and pencil.


And here they are all gift wrapped and tagged.

I hope you like them.

Updates from the last Stamp Camp Workshop….

Well, at the last workshop I got to make a few extra cards again. So I thought I’d post them up for you to see….
This one is an easel card.  Most that I have seen are “Portrait”, but I chose to go Landscape.  They are so easy, I have no idea why I haven’t done them before!!!
I have left the greeting off so that when I am searching for just the right card, I can add just the right greeting.
I'm sure you’ll see more easel cards appear on here soon.



I know, I know, I haven’t been on in a while..well since the last class.  Time has just run away from me.  Not good as there hasn’t been enough time for blogging and crafting.

Well I have a few blogs to catch up on and they will be coming soon.  Very soon, I promise.
