Its June, so it must be nearly Christmas!!! Well it is in our house... at least it is in my 'creative' room. I've been hard at it for weeks but now I have my ten new stamps sets in my hand so its head down and start creating some great cards for Christmas. I've even designed some for later on in the year that might inspire you to make Easter cards, wedding or valentine cards and a little something for the boys too.
I am planning classes from August/September onwards so do keep a look out at the craft shops where I teach.
I thought you might like a little taster... so here is my stylish reindeer on an A5 card using Woodware products. 
Having lost my dear cat Sylvester at the end of May all this work has kept my mind very busy, I don't feel so sad. Thanks to all of you for your kind messages and cards.

It is with great sadness I have to tell you that we had to put our dear 16 year old grey cat Sylvester to sleep last Friday the 29th May. He had kidney problems and went down hill very fast. I miss him being around but we have Elliot, our ginger tom to help keep us on our toes.

Sylvester, who belonged to my brother, came to live with us six years ago. He was such a treasure, never a hiss or a growl! I'm taking his ashes back to Winchcombe near Cheltenham where my brother lives, to be buried in the pet cemetery in the grounds of his house. Sylvester loved the garden there and would take summer evening strolls with the family so I think he will be happy back in that peaceful place.
