Good Morning Ladies,
Happy April Fools Day. !!! I can't believe we are into the 4th month of this year already!! Slow it down please !
Oh my goodness ladies, how flipping adorable is my snail 🐌 ?! She is the cutest creature I have ever seen. I saw a snail just like mine on Facebook made by a very talented lady called Helen Lockwood. I commented on the original snail saying that I loved her and hadn't seen anything as cute before, Helen replied and asked if she would like me to make her one, of course I jumped at the chance, and a couple of days later my new friend arrived in the post. Helen also decided that my snail needed a matching 'Powder Puff' , so she made one of those too, it is just so pretty, stunning lace and the beautiful blue velvet that matches the snail.
Helen's attention to detail is incredible, every single thing is finished beautifully, she has little rosy cheeks and and perfectly tied , lace bow too, the pretty necklace, i didn't photograph the back but it is decorated as beautifully as the front. It is one of those things that makes you smile every time you look at it.
Helen, if you pop in, thank you so very much I love her xxx
But ladies, she needs a name, so please can you suggest something befitting such a pretty, perfectly dressed snail? I would be very grateful xxx
Janet has been crafting like crazy this week, just look at what she has achieved !!!
Janet, you are flippin Amazing! I don't know how you did it all, while still fitting in the 101 other things that you had to do. Everyone of those cups and flower pots, with handmade flowers, is finished beautifully. The children will think the Easter Bunny has gone right 'High End' this year, the fantastic thing about these gifts is that they can keep the cup etc after they have eaten the chocolate, to put things in on their desks etc. You must have taken a huge sigh of relief when you stood back and photographed that lot! As I said before you are Amazing !!!
Thank you for taking the time to share xxx
Brenda sent me her 'Craft Purchase ' photo on Thursday evening but i just have missed it, so i am including it today. I have to say that I have most of these ink pads and they are amazing, the ink has a firm felt surface, which is suspended upside down inside the packaging, this means the ink is always at the surface of the pad ready for inking up those stamps, the other side of the stamp case is a pallette, all you do is gently squeeze the ink pad before opening and you have ink on the pallette ready to dip your paint brush or dauber or whatever you want to use to colour with in the ink. Another thing I have done is ordered the Stampin Up Blender pens, you get a pack of 3 for £9.99, I use these with the ink pad, meaning I have a matching marker pen too, as the ink starts to run out you get fantastic shading, if you want to darken areas just dip in ink pad again and darken those shaded areas! Once you have finished with a colour you just scribble on a piece of scrap paper until the nib just clear.
Brenda I hope you love your ink pads as much as I do, you have chosen so beautiful colours to work with. Thank you for sharing xxx
