Greenhouse Garden for several reasons

Hi everyone hope you are enjoying half-term whether you have children or whether you are just getting to work easier with less cars on the road for a week.
Today we've done our exercise with tennis, but this afternoon we are relaxing at home and I've made this card ready for my workshop tonight at Anna's house to show different uses of this fabulous set. I resisted buying it, but when Stampin' Up! said they would donate money to help the Haitian people I just had to join in and help. Remember you still can help by buying this set from me during February and you will be entered into a draw to win a Pretties Kit with lots of lovely pearls, beads and flowers to add pizzazz to your projects. Spend £45 including this set and you'll get free shipping, draw entry and a free limited edition stamp set which will never be available for purchase.
Now I also made this card for The Corrosive Challenge blog which has asked for you to include sewing on your project either real or faux as they say in the craft world, false to you and me!!!! I've also included some designer series paper in rose red, choc chip taffeta ribbon and Oval All with the oval punches. The base card is creamy caramel and I stamped the images onto whisper white and sponged and spritsed to soften the white. Greenhouse Garden is an easy to use set and you don't need to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the two step stamping images. Looks good if I say so myself.
Now Olivia has also been busy and has made this card for her friend Kerry who is having a party this weekend. I let Olivia loose with my sticky cuts which are double sided sticky die cut shapes which adhere to card and then you can add glitter in different colours to make up your story. She's also used a glue dot to add some sparkle to her buttons. We've used some supplies from our stash, but the stamped images are also from the latest Sale-a-bration sets. Get yours now before they are gone on 28 Feb.

Off to finish packing my bag for the party tonight and then we're looking to watch a movie in front of the fire before dinner.
Have a great weekend everyone.
Hugs Zx
