Demonstration at the weekend

I was demonstrating and teaching this weekend at Crafts U Love.  Here are some of the cards I made ;)

Had beaver sleepover on Saturday night, next to no sleep, yesterday I was fine.  In fact I didn't stop all day.
Today however I feel shattered.  So I will keep this brief as I am just so tired.

Bit different

A friend at work is leaving Friday but since I am not in Fridays I am taking this card in tomorrow.

I used a Christy Kroll image for the main image.  KT loves gothic and also pink!

Its not a great card, but after a hard day at work I am tired and not in the best inspired mood :/

Monochrome Card

I made this card for the Monochrome Craft Challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenge blog.  Also for samples for my demo table this Saturday at work where I am playing with Penny Black stamps! :)

Here is an "almost Monochrome card"  just two colours on this one.

Stamps are from the Mimi in paris set from Penny Black.  I thought this elegant paper looked good with these stamps.  Not something you would usually do but I felt it worked.  The paper happens to have this ornate frame on it.  Which I stamped Mimi with Poodle on and then I stamped again onto card and coloured and cut out.

Hope you like.

kids funnies

I want to keep a note of all the funny things my boys say....

Todays have been.

Today's kid funnies : Caiden loves me as I look like a Gremlin (but a nice one not a scary one) and Harvey was most upset just now when I turned off Antiques roadshow!

 Last night Caiden said he could see the man in the moon eating cheese and the lady man in the moon eating nuggets, chips and Darleks!

I hope they make u laugh as much as me... aww bless and something to look at with them when they get older.

Flower Bear

This is the first of my flower bears.  4 New designs from Wild Rose and 3 of which I fell in love with.  These clear stamps are such good value and stamp really well too.

Coloured with watercolour pencils
Button Stampin Up!
Tulle from work - wow lovely tulle - I cut it to size
Paper is Echo Park, Paper is Echo Park (sorry couldn't resist)

My cards are sooooo simple, sometimes I feel like I am not keeping up on the trends
with like a bazillion flowers and additions but I just cant help myself.  Always drawn to simple.

Weekend already?!

Well its always ended too :(  where do these weeks fly to?

I made a card last night for a little boy who's party my boys are going to today with Daddy.  Harvey is trying to be all grown up saying he is only going to the wacky warehouse to look after the little ones as at 8 he is too old, when I know he still loves it there!!   He'll be running about with the rest of them.

Used another Penny Black stamp, this time a cute kitty cat hanging on a kite string.  Stuck with primary colours for this one.  A cuttlebug folder for the numbers, swiped over the embossing with a white pigment ink pad.

Quiet excited as a local mum is opening a shop in Merstham village.  She does the most amazing murals and other fab home decor stuff and she is allowing me to try and sell some cards in her shop.  So I had better get planning and costing some designs.

A quick card

Today's quick make is a scallop shaped card using a Penny Black stamp and the Marianne Die both items from work.

Today I have been looking after my doggy Milo who had his "bits" off on Wednesday so he is still a little sorry for himself, so a quiet day with a tiny bit of crafting.

The events unfolding on the TV in Japan are shocking, the tv new so harrowing to watch :(  I hope you and yours are all safe.  It certainly puts things into perspective doesn't it?

Stay safe everyone x

New card

I made this card tonight whilst my hubby is watching Inception as soon as it started I knew I wouldn't "get it" so didn't even bother to try :0)

This is an adorable image from Penny Black.

Couldn't find any papers to go with it, really wanted some lovely berry papers.

This has been added to the Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes

Started as something ended up something else

This card was originally for a sketch but I didn't have room for all the stuff so it ended up just like it is.  Left greeting off so I can add my own.

very simple. Not sure I like it

Happy Birthday my sweet Harvey xxx

My sweet boy Harvey is 8 today.  Where on earth has that 8 years gone to?

I love you Harvey so much xxx
