Here Goes

What a week!

I have been back at University this week and kept being given homework so have had to have a last minute attempt.
Please please excuse my poor excuse of a post.....I actually craft with my son Nathan. 
We have chosen a Have a Cuppa as our retired items to show case. We love these combinations as they represent to me why I joined Stampin Up Nathan loves to craft and drink tea. So we created Nathan's Craft & Tearoom in September 2014 to give Nathan supported employment as he has additional needs. I later joined Stampin Up to add quality to our crafting, added bonus is I have meet some wonderful people in the process.

This is Nathan

This is our card creation using the 'Have a Cuppa DSP' and the cups and kettle framelits dies.

Nathan's Tea cosy with our creation.

 We started because of a 'Big Shot' Nathan loves using his and will cut out as many shapes as with need. Due to his visual impairment the magnet platform is fantastic as it keeps the dies in place.

I also used the A Nice Cuppa stamp set to create my SAB team swaps earlier this year.

Thank you for reading my first blog you can see they can only get better.

Bye for now.
