Hi all

Another working week almost coming to a close for me and another lots of lavender card from me I am afraid but this looks so effective and is simply stamping the image and mounting with a smidge of embossing using the hexagons textured embossing folder - the first time I've used it! Love it!!

Colour combo of sahara sand, wisteria wonder, whisper white and a splash of old olive.
Sentiment from One Big Meaning set and let's face it you can never have too many thank you cards.

Good morning

A lovely crisp Sunday if a little chilly ( ore excuses for crafty time )

Yesterday we had another successful event in preparation for Valentines with some lovely ladies, lots of fun had by all.

I had gotten a new freebie stamp set this week thanks to a couple of customers placing orders during saleabration and chose the Lots of Lavender set so updated my display with a few projects using it.

How cute is this bag made using the gift bag punch board and some old DSP and ribbon.

Lots of lavender stamp set is a two step stamping so you stamp the outline and then add colour with another stamp but it could be coloured in and I must admit I will be trying this at some point today so watch this space for more :0)

The lovely sentiment is from Love you still stamp set and added some twine for texture and the bloom of lavender is shimmery but couldn't get a good picture of it sorry...mothers day was in my mind for this gift bag.

Enjoy your Sunday and happy crafting

Helloooo and happy hump day
its Wednesday the middle of my working week!

Anyone else see the week like that...if I can get to Wednesday is downhill to the end of the week :0)

It's also my niece's 10th birthday so only right I show her card to you today

I made the very colourful background using  clear block technique and then splashed colours over and added shimmer spray.
As unicorns are very popular especially with my niece it had to be a unicorn card with a gold glimmer number.

You can just see some of the shimmer in real life it is soooo sparkly she will love it!!

Birthday sentiment from birthday blooms set and a little tempting turquoise mount.

Happy Birthday Olivia

Good morning

We had a lovely event on saturday and thank you to all who visited the same event is running next Saturday Feb 3rd too so look forward to seeing some new faces there for a lovely set to give on Valentine's day.

With that in mind I had a play making some colourful backgrounds, todays card I used a clear block coloured in with SU marker and spritzed with water to make a lovely swirly effect and the black card makes it stand out even more.

I added some little gold glimmer flowers (sadly retired punch sorry) too love black and gold together very classy me thinks.

Love that background effect and as I am having a crafty play today rather than chores eekk! think I will have more to show you soon.
