Christmas Birthday

Good Afternoon I hope you didn't suffer too much damage from the recent storm, the only damage I had was a circle punch slipping out of my hand and knocking over my coffee!! luckily it missed my card creation.

I had a lovely day in my craft room but by the time I had tidied it up I only had time to make one card. I am really enjoying the digi stamps from Wee Stamps at the moment so today I show you another Rowan Fairy but in a different colour scheme, ideal for a Christmas card or a December birthday.

Surprise in post

What a lovely surprise I had today, my darling husband has bought tickets for the NEC show in November. As I have a disc problem in my back he has also booked very kindly booked a hotel for the weekend as well so I don't have to travel most of the day before walking around the show, now that's love or is it, that he wants the spa and swimming after the show!
I can't wait to go and find all the new crafty things that I just need to to finish that card!! as I can never find them locally. Shhhh! don't tell hubby that I have so much stuff already that I could probably hold my own exhibition.

A pretty little card for now , using Wee Stamps Digi image  http://www.weestamps.com/

Marianne Butterfly

Today I have a lovely Marianne design butterfly card for you all, I do love this butterfly. I have found it much easier to use with wax paper as a release aid due to the intricate detail. I have inked the oval using Adirondak ink ( stream), gave it a spritz with some very watered down pearl all purpose acrylic paint, then stamped the flowers in memento ink and the adirondak. It needed something to lift the colour so I have gone back to using silver mirri card, I haven't used this for a long time. The background is embossed using a crafts too embossing plate and punched band is an x cut border punch.

 I do hope you like and thank you for looking.
