Well I'm about to throw  laptop, mobile phone and brand new camera away!!!! lol   Sorry Julia just needed to set the scene! I didn't visit last week as I was very busy preparing for the ten ladies who came to my class last Saturday. I seemed unable to post/ add photos from my phone - even though I had been doing that. Sending photos from my phone to laptop week before last was hopeless photos all small :-( Got new camera this week and was all excited re photos for blog etc and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but have had a right performance. I need to investigate further and consult my Techie - aka my son :-)
Anyway hopefully can put some photos on with this post but I don't think they are the quality I'm hoping for eventually.

So Saturday class went very well. I went out for lunch afterwards with two of the ladies - I was exhausted on Saturday night!!!!!

So to my desk/aka dining table :-) I had cleared everything away so have just put out the cards we made and ones I made for inspiration.

hurray it's worked ;-)

Above are the four items we made. The little box is big enough to hold a lipstick. I'd managed to get some lip balm - one for each lady. There was a ribbon round it but it got taken off.
Above some of the cards I made as 'inspiration' and to show some of the new goodies from the Stampin' Up!Spring/Summer catalogue.
So I am going to link up with Julia's Blog Stamping Ground and see what other crafters have on their desks. Why not pop along and join in.
I will visit anyone who visits me and those who end with the same number as me plus as many others that I can manage.
By for now and I will hopefully be back soon with some fab photos - when I get my rather old head around it all !!!


  1. I'm sorry you're having trouble with your new camera. Make sure you have the top selector round thing set on "iA" which does everything automatically. You can zoom using the little toggle handle on the button to the right of that one. Hold the shutter button down halfway for it to focus, then press it down. The biggest thing is to learn to hold your breath and press the shutter button without wiggling the camera. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Fab cards Anne and what a cute little box too. Really hope you get your IT problems sorted soon.
    Have a great week.

  3. Hi Anne, hope the camera and laptop start to talk nicely to each other for you! Lovely cards and cute little box too, you ahve been busy! Happy Wednesday to you! Annette #31

  4. How lovely your projects are. Annoying when technology gets in the way of our plans.
    Have a good week.

  7. Grr technology! I'm sure a greater mind than mine will sort it out for you! Like all the cads you've made very much..especially like the big brush stroke style words....I suddenly feel enabled!!

  8. Lovely cards, my friend would be interested in seeing them - hopefully I can show her before I leave for home.
    Would love to know how to make the lipstick holder - any chance of a tutorial?
    Hugs, Neet 2 xx

  9. Glad you got your photos loaded today! great cards. Helen #1

  10. I know exactly what you mean by needing a young techie. I often wish I had a young person around. My grandchildren live too far away....
    The cards are beautiful! I love that heart shaped die. I bet the ladies enjoyed it and had a great time.
    Thank you for taking the trouble to visit and for your sweet comment.
    Greetings from sunny Spain,

  11. Makes you want to get rid of all your technology for a while, right? Love the stuff you made in class. The cards look wonderful.

    Have a great week

  12. Technology huh? Great when it works, rubbish when it doesn't. I think that little box for lip balm is a fab prezzy idea and those heart cards are lovely!

  13. I would have loved to attend your class, Anne! I feel your pain about your challenges with technology. I have some issues that I thought I had fixed and haven't, but I still think blogging is a fun form of communication. I'm cheering you on as you get comfortable with your new equipment :) xx

  14. ahh wodnerful cards there Anne, thanks so much for sharing the inspiration and yes would loved your class too :D
    Sorry about the woes with the the images etc.
    I do pray they get sorted for you happy WOYWW!!
