They've sold them all!!!! Go girlies!! Guess what we'll be doing this weekend. They all want more for Easter. Am so pleased for them.

Very Enterprising!!!!

Just wanted to share these with you. Not literally lol!! but I can assure you that the taste test on the caramels confirmed, as I suspected, that they are yummy lol!!!

My eldest & her friend have made 14 of these to sell at school as part of an Enterprise Initiative they run each year. Each form is given £20 & the form that raises the most money for charity wins a prize.

I found the tutorial for these on Youtube but it has been made by Monica (who I met last night at A Stampin Up Experience) here is the link . They are so easy to make & we're already planning a weekend conveyor belt to make some more so I can sell them at work on Monday.
The papers are Papermania but I have stamped all four corners on the white side so that once it's folded it still has a bit of detail. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly & the tag is computer printed & punched out with the SU Word Window punch. The flowers are punched & the brads are from Papermania.

Fingers crossed they will sell them all. They worked really hard last night folding & sticking & I'm really proud of them. Well done girls.

I can really recommend the Stampin Up range of crafting goods & if you need any information or want to order anything I can highly recommend my Stampin Up rep Jules.

Cute Card Thursday - Lucky Green

This weeks challenge over at Cute Card Thursday is to use green as the main colour on your card.

Next Thurs is St Pats Day which is big in our house as my girls are Irish Dancers. We are parading on Sunday in Leeds & the girls are dancing in Millenium Square. It's a great day out so if anyone is in & around Leeds come along. Look out for the Joyce O'Donnell School of Dancing!!!

Anyway, on to my cards, I wanted to make a few quickie cards to replenish my various baskets as Im lucky to have 3 outlets for my cards (more pennies to spend lol!!). I had already made up some of these flowers I'd seen on Emma's Blog. Mine are slightly different in the middle but the idea is the same. Pop across & have a look at her blog, she has some amazing cards.

The cardstock is Stampin Up Certainly Celery & Kraft and the ribbon is also SU Old Olive. The bling is from my stash. Really simple card but I do love the flowers!!
