Project Tuesday

This is a gift card for my mother-in-law, its her birthday today! Happy birthday mum!
I saw this idea on the Project Tuesday challenge blog and thought it was a fab idea. The mil loves daffodils and I saw a tutorial on Mainly Flowers for them. I had a go at those, but as I do't have the proper tools they didn't look quite right, so I tweaked them a bit.
(Just used 2 5 petal flower punchies and stuck them together.)

Here's the inside. (There wo't be a PC world gift card in it when I give it to her later, but its all I could find lol!) The verse is one I found when I googled can't remember the site, sorry.
I have used So saffron c/s and DSP and Always artichoke c/s.

Holiday Pics

So I've bored the family with my holiday pictures i thought i'd put some on here too!
Heres where we meet Mickey and Minnie in the town hall next to their houses. boy did we queue! Ollie loved meeting the characters and so did Laura not quite sure Jamie did, either that or he forgot how to smile for the camera!

We met up with my best friend and her family while we were there and this pic is of the boys after a bag of candy floss at Blizzard Beach. They had a great day playing together and spent ages in the wave pool which was just right for Ollie as he could touch the floor.
Meanwhile me Lynne and sarah were travelling down the lazy river when a snake dropped in to say hello!!! It wasn't poisonous though and the snake was put safely back into the bushes. Bit of a shock mind.

Ollie's favourite characters were Buzz and Woody and he was in awe when he met them! We spent most of this morning waiting to get on the Buzz ride and then after we came off Irealised I'd scarred my little boy for life.... I thought I would be able to have Ollie sitting on my knee for this ride but when we had got on they put a bar down to hold us all in and Ollie was sitting in the middle and couldn't reach the gun.... well competitive mum syndrome kicked in and i forgot ollie, had a wail of a time competing with competitive dad.... so when we got off Ollie cried "I don't like being in the middle!!" Shame faced we joined the queue to meet the characters... lol!!

And finally a picture of us all having a super yummy ice cream at Hollywood Studios. My favourite flavour was cookies and cream. Oreo cookies at morrisons here we come :0

Thanks for looking :) I need to go and prepare for my class tonight. i think I have 6 people coming!!!

Jet lagged!

Well we have just returned from Orlando yesterday and I feel zonked!! Will add some pictures later.
Anyway this is my class for next week. There are 3 projects and we are using sweet always papers and colour combos of regal rose, rose red, pumpkin pie and very vanilla.
The stamp set is pick a petal.

This is a shadow box card. I've stamped the petals onto very vanilla, cut out and mounted inside on 3D foam.

This is a slider card. I had fun distressing my petals and mounting the centre for a 3D effect at the corner. The petals are repeated in the corner of the insert. I have used the stamp-a-ma-jig to do the 2 step stamping on the petals.

And to finish a little origami gift box filled with 4 ferrero rocher chocolates.
