A couple of cards....

We are having a bit of a change around at work....I am moving to a different office, and a colleague that is based there is moving to the office that I am leaving (purely coincidence, we do completely different jobs!) So.... I needed to make a "Good Luck" card for her, and a "thank you for my leaving gifts" card for the team that I am leaving. As ever, I used a lovely Penny Black stamp!!

Especially for you...

I made this card (completely inspired by this wonderful work, using a new "Stampin Up" stamp called "Queue Up". It is for a lady who is in the same hospital ward as my mum. She has lots of problems with her health, but is always cheerful and has been really good company for my mum. They have exchanged addresses, so I hope that I will be able to take mum to visit her as soon as they have both recovered!

Congratulations Laura!

I made this for my colleague Laura who has just become a British citizen ( she told me after I had been teasing her about the poor performance of her home country Argentina in the Olympics!) I used two stamps from the Penny Black London set (although I did trim the mouse and the hedgehog away from the bunting), and so I am entering it into the Penny Black challenge "Double Trouble" here

Happy Birthday......

I just love this "Funstamps" bear...I already have him playing golf, playing football and driving a car (not all at the same time you understand!), and now I have this stamp!

I made a lot of cards with this embossing folder last year, so I had to use it again with this new stamp!

I found the instructions for these calendars on the "Little Claire" blog, and thought I would try to get a bit ahead of myself by making some up... Both using lovely Penny Black stamps of course!!!
