Well I thought we were in for a warm weekend as yesterday was sooo hot here but noooo so thank heavens for the neighbour at the end of my gardens kitty well she came running in at 8 this a.m cuddled up on my lap wrapped in a blanket of course and sat with me while I had my cuppa and warmed me up a treat. Then I twigged I was warming her up as she had her bottom half on my lap top too and did not want to move , even the paint smell did not deter her today. So she won and I had to wait til she was warm and went off home for fear of cat hair in the paint or paint in the cat hair hmm not sure which would be worse lol
Welcome to the couple of new gals joined onto the blog since Friday , we are a lovely bunch of wonderful ladies on here so feel free to leave comments and start chats as I do try to reply as often as I can. Once I reach 200 subscribers as I said last time I will have a nice giveaway so yayyyy , so looking forward to that. love giving things away.
Ok usually you would see me blogging for Visible Image today but we have had a shuffle around so I am now on Wednesday for that and in the meantime I have been showing the cards from my last show with Creative Expressions on Create and craft tv, so here is another.
I all stamps out 'Be a traveler not a tourist' and cut it into a ribbon band with fork ends, matted onto black and added to the card with a bend in the middle and some flat back 5mm pearls finished the job. The embellishment consisted of a ribbon bow made from hemp and coloured to match a beige zipper rose atop of that with a couple of the metal tassel's showing from under the rose too.
Ok here is part two card for Sunday.
Here again I have used Just Rite products , here is the map background stamp in Plum which looks a little more pinky on film but it is very purple in person, I have brushed the colour out with a water brush after stamping as there Adirondacks I am using are die based so I can blend with them and they react to water just as the distress stains do but take a little more work to blend. As you can see this is very simple but looks more because of the extra mats etc. But even the Bike stamp which is gorgeous was so easy to stamp and is a creative expressions one as I just used the one colour and brushed it out a little and added a tiny sparkle to the rims and handle bars etc but it really doesn't show much on here I am afraid.
Here it slightly laying back to show its layers etc.
Ok my lovelies I hope you have all been watching our lovely Sue today on C&C and wow doesn't she look stunning, although I am not demoing at Aly Paly now this coming weekend I will still be popping in to give them all my support and have a cuppa so if any of you do go please say hi , I really would love it and of course Visible Image and Craftwork cards will all be there too ,so yay all round.
See you soon my Blogglies.
