Quick cards from some freebies and my new stash!

As a little thank you, the wonderful and lovely Helen included a little Baggie of Bits and pieces in my order bag she dropped off yesterday. So whilst two six year olds tear around the house I decided to do some simple bits and pieces and test out a couple of my new stamp sets... And this is what I created. Nearly all are stampin up products and so the colours coordinate beautifully!

None of these are for a particular reason and so will all end up either in the box at work for sale, or my cousins box of cards!

I know Helen will be proud of me for trying the ruffled ribbon again on card number two with the seam binding after the very frustrated lesson we had when she tried to teach us! It worked better this time, although the piece I cut was a bit short and so had to flatten the middle part and cover it with the label... But pleased now that it's finished.

I think I can get another card out of the Baggie of bits Helen included but we had to stop for cake and so all bits have been tidied away again now!

Also in a report back the fortieth cards were well received and more cards were requested so feeling pretty chuffed about that! The two cards returned are being recycled into the cards my auntie has asked for so a quick swap of the ages and sorted for the next batch of commissions!

Thanks for looking and please remember to pop over to my Christmas blog where there is a little bit of blog candy up for grabs if you comment and leave a link to my blog on yours before the end of the month!


  1. The cards look fab! Well done at the ruffled ribbon, it's loads easier with seam binding than the grosgrain we used in class :)and I love the mix and match with some of the stamp sets you got this month... yes very proud LOL

    1. Cheers hon! For both the teaching me how to do the ribbon thing and for sharing these lovely bits and pieces!

      Really enjoyed playing with them this afternoon. Was going to craft tonight but just too tired to get things out of the cupboard again!
