Only 2 Days left!!

Hello folks,
I have a couple of cards to share with you today, they are both quite speedy cards to make, in fact we made them both last week at a little get together I had at my friends house last week to share the last chance list and some retiring products with the ladies, I am still up in the air at home so next months class date is still being decided (as to when I have a house suitable for people to come to!) I promise you will be the first to know .
So here are the cards, most of the products are retiring and as such will be gone forever tomorrow night, eek! If you need to place an order then email me before 7pm tomorrow on
Here is the first card, it uses Brocade Blue and Close to Cocoa (both retiring) with Seeing Spots (1/2 price at just £6.98) a great set for men's cards and Say it with Scallops (25% off at £11.21) another great set for speedy makes,
arty angle,

The 2nd card today is made using Pixie Pink card (retiring) with the lovely True Friend stamp set (retiring but 1/2 price @ £10.98) I love this set as it has great sentiments as well as lovely images,

I have teamed the Pixie Pink with Basic Grey and Melon Mambo (both staying) and a touch of Black Gingham ribbon (also 1/2 price @ just £2.63!)

This is your last chance to get your hands on some of the little bargains I have shown you today, I hope to hear from you soon,

Michaels Birthday Card

Josh is off out tonight to his friends 14th birthday tonight, he is having a disco 'till 10pm! eeek, I am scared... they are growing up way too fast!!!!!!!!!!
So, I made a boys card using mostly retiring products by chance really.
Base of the card is Brocade Blue with the middle panel layered in Close to Cocoa (sold out) I stamped the background with Seeing Spots which is also retiring and now has a fantastic 50% off so it is now just £6.98! how good is that? and it is a great set for men's cards,
Here it is held closed (with my new magnetic stand, cool huh?)
The star is from Fun and Fast notes which I stamped a few times and coloured using blender pens
This gorgeous ribbon is going too, boooo, I love it, all the colours are still available but the Rose Red (pinky) and Bashful Blue ones in the same style are both reduced in price to boot, the star brads which again are great for boys/men's cards are also 50% off while stocks last.

I added a little strip of presents which are from the Family Accessories which is another retiring product,

and finally here it is unfolded,
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you like today's card and if you need anything from the retirement list then please get in touch asap as the list is strictly only available 'till the end of September or until stocks last.

WOW!!!! amazing savings while stocks last, oh and a card ;-)

WOW! have SU! got some great savings on their last chance list now, they have dropped the price of LOADS more stuff on the retirement list HERE. Grab them now while stocks last as they have already sold out of quite a few things. I will be placing orders over the next few days so if there is anything you need then better get in quick as I cannot guarantee how long they will last... especially at these crazy prices!!!
So, onto the card. It was a quick but dimensional card made using the great "To the Nines Speciality" papers (retiring) on a kraft base and a sentiment made with the Just Perfect alpha and a Bit of Birthday Cheer, gotta love those star brads (also retiring and now 50% off, yay!)
I love this wide striped ribbon too, as you can see I raised some of the squares and topped some with Crystal Effects, yum!

Well that's it from me today,
another busy weekend ahead, kids parties and painting ;-)
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to email me your order asap

This Weekend Was Fun :-D

Long time no craft!! But as on Sunday was my lovely Nans 90th birthday I just HAD to get some done ;-) It was really nice to get creative after such a long time not having the time (nor space/mojo mind) to make anything! We are still living in chaos here but seem to be getting there, the 1st half of the kitchen is being plastered today , now that's exciting!
Anyway, back to Nan. My dear Nan lives in Birmingham and if there has been one thing this last few (harrowing) weeks have taught us is that is that life is precious and you really don't know what is just round the corner, so with that in mind we all set off on Sunday morning for a surprise birthday visit, so when we got there I phoned her to wish her a Happy Birthday and then rang the doorbell! to say she was surprised...
Bless her :-D
This was the card I made for her,
I made it using the sketch from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog, Sketch no 66,

Colours used were Sage Shadow and Pixie Pink (both retiring)

Stamp set used is Live Your Dream also retiring, better order now to avoid disappointment, some stuff has already sold out, I will update the list for you tomorrow,
A little piccie of the inside.
I also made little sweet boxes for the table (of which I will show you more of in the next few days as my camera battery was dead, luckily Mum had hers with her but I will have to wait and pinch some copies from her this week) I used some of the lovely "Bride" papers these will also be going at the end of the month or perhaps sooner...

a close up of the spray of flowers again from Live Your Dream, Clear buttons are also retiring.
I will leave you today with a piccie of myself and Zack, he had an inset day today so I took him to Paultons park, it was fab as it was really quiet with no queues, all well and good but I just did 1 ride too many and was starting to feel REALLY sick, good job we had to come home and pick up Zoe from school when we did! lol!
So that's my weekend in one post, I hope you enjoyed yours.
I hope to be back soon with some more crafty yumminess,
Hugs Sarah-Jane xxx

So I just thought I would pop on here and offer my apologies for my lack of blogging this last few weeks.
Unfortunately my dear sweet mum-in-law passed away this last week after a {very} short illness. We have naturally been left devastated and have been trying to support each other in the best way we can, together.
As you can imagine I have not had the time or focus to be very creative during this last few weeks.
I am hoping that the funeral will be a positive experience and hope to be back with you all very soon.
I just wanted to drop by, say 'hi' and let you all know I am missing you all lots x
Hugs to all my blog buddies,
