Apologies for Tuesdays blog posting, as they are a few Julies in our team, I got a little mixed up, with who's who!! So the 'French Foilage' Swap that inspired me was in fact made by Julie Wade, sorry girls xx

Yesterday I made the journey over to my SU mum Julies, to join her and some others for a morning of crafting, we had great fun and Julie gave us some fantastic project ideas, one of which I have pinched for the makes I am showing today....thank you mummy!! 

The journey over was OK, and in the afternoon I found the Krispey Kreme, drive through and Ikea, so spent a bit of time shopping too!! But the journey home.....well it took nearly two hours!!! You have thought that by the time I had landed home and got Heather & Matthew in the bath and done the reading that I would be pooped, and ready to hit the duvet.....well no- I couldn't sleep......I am seriously getting excited about Paris, even after spending an hour or so reading, a very Scientific book for book group, I couldn't sleep, and craft I couldn't bring myself to hold the scissors in case I chopped to much!!

Anyway at some point I drifted off, but all to soon the alarm was buzzing in my ear, and as I groggily came to life inspiration hit me!! I had made a little card for the 'Make & Take' on Tuesdays 'Creative Cafe' even though happy with the college style and colour inspiration, from my 'Colour Coach', I got the Idea to make another card, with a bit more going on and also to borrow Julie Kettlewells lovely Idea of making a little favour/ treat holder.

So without shakey hands or butterflies in my tummy, I put ink to card this morning, here is the finished group.  
 The lovely colours of 'Richrazzleberry' 'Pool Party' & 'Island Indigo' were inspire buy the great SU colour coach I just added a touch of the 'Basic Grey' as a neautral.
The lovely treat/ favour, made using the new SU 'Big Shot' die- 'Two Tags'. The main stamp set in use was the delightful 'Elegant Eleanor' and the text.....well can you guess were it came from??
....it is in the SU 'Ideas Book & Catalogue'
This is the card we made at 'Creative Cafe'....I think I have a thing going for white space!!
And this is the card I made this morning, its got even more stamping on and it has been blinged up!
I have made a few more of these, to post out to hostess.
This is just a random shot I took,
of just the finished items grouped together,
but it has given me an idea for a scrapbook page, to match!!
