More Pick of the Bunch


Using the Fuchsia and Peony stamp sets 

Good evening Peeps, well what did you all think to the Olympic closing ceremony ?

We thought it was absolutely fabulous, very typically British and a great way to not only close the Games but to showcase some of our wonderful musical talents. The highlight for me had to be Freddie on the big screen and Brian and Roger strutting their stuff and then the finale with the surprise appearance of the Who, then of course there was Take That, I could go on. And to see the athletes so enjoying themselves and getting into the swing of it all made it the perfect finale.

Using the Peony and rose stamp sets (the lattice die on this one is a new ish one from Memory Box, but I'm unable to add the link below as it's not on the stores web site)

As promised a few more shares of some of the cards I've made for Ruth using her beautiful new Pick of the Bunch clear stamp sets. They are a delight to work with and they stamp out so crisply and with at least  ten stamps on each set represent excellent value for money.

And finally, I know most of the other girls who were at our blog girl get together at Sally's on Saturday..............thanks Sal, it was great.............have posted pictures of us all so I'm not going there again, for somebody who just doesn't 'do' photos there are more than enough of them out there already, but there's one that only I have !! 

Using the Chrysanthemum stamp set

Sorry about this Lisa Jane but it's too good to keep to myself and in case you wonder what she's up to, she's just delving into the little goodie bag I gave them all, as one of them said when it was time to leave with us all holding a piece of cake "it's just like a real party". And no, the goody bag wasn't filled with chocolates, just one little packet of buttons and crafty bits and bobs.


You have to agree though, she does look pretty happy doesn't she ? If you're still speaking to me after this Lisa, look forward to seeing you and the others on our next get-together.

  10. Gorgeous cards Brenda. Beautiful images and just the sort of colours I love. I've got the lattice die and I haven't thought of using it like that. Makes a great background.

    I've watched a bit of the Olympics closing ceremony this morning but still rather a lot to see. Sounds like you had a lovely get together with the blog girls.

    Take care,

    Kat xx

  12. Is this colouring I see on your cards?? Lovely set of cards, I especially like the shaped card at the end. Those stamps of Ruth's really are lovely. It was great to see you again at the weekend, and I have eaten my buttons. The OH said does chocolate and craft go together, won't you get it on your work!

  27. Your goddy bag looks absolutely delightful - as evidenced by the look on your recipient's face! Looks like you had an amazing time. My favourite of your cards is the final one though I do love the fuchsia flowers & the way you have used leaves for garlands.
