Good Morning My Lovely friends,
Well it's finally the day we leave for our holiday, this week has just flown by and we are the least organised we have ever been! yesterday was just manic and flew by, Paul got the trailer packed and everything is all lined up waiting to be put in back of car and roof box, it got too dark for Paul to continue! Fingers crossed that they don't ask us to unpack at Dover!
Now you have all been busy shoppers this week so I have shared your craft shopping today.....
Lynda, I see you have bought some of Leonie's new dies, I can't wait to see what you create with those, they look quite different to the usual dies we see. Now I love that Visible Image stamp, something quite different for you, I can see you making some amazing teen cards with that, both girls and boys were skinny jeans and converse so a good unisex stamp too, it would work well with a brick wall stamp or mask to put the grafiti on!
The Gemini die is lovely, I have seen some fab cards made with that one, I see you have been buying some Christmas dies too, those Trees look interesting, you know how much I love that Stampin up stamp set, its so pretty and versatile, I am thinking about doing Stampin Up myself, but I'm just not confident enough, what do you think?? Almost every card I love on Pinterest is Stampin Up and having read the catalogue cover to cover many times I have a huge wish list !
Thank you for sharing your craft buys Lynda xxxx
Janet bought this gorgeous basket and lace curtain while she was in France, from the Market, the lace curtain was only 2 Euros for 2 metres!! That basket looks gorgeous, I love the fabric on the top, it looks like a lovely scarf has been draped over the basket, so lovely, you would look very classy going shopping with that. Thank you so much for sharing Janet xxxx
Margaret has ordered some more lovely sentiment dies, they are just so handy to have in your stash, its easier to add a die cut to a finished card that it is to stamp on it (well it is for me anyway), these can be popped anywhere, die cut in matching paper too. You have some amazing dies for making Mens cards too, love the Spellbinders Dog with his bone and ball, I know that 'Star' certainly is 'Mans best Friend' to Alan so would make a perfect card for him, the Spellbinders Boat is another fab mens card die, the lovely Banners die would add a lovely finishing touch or background to any card, I am really excited to see what cards you make with this lot Margaret, thank you so much for sharing xxxx
I thought I would just add a quick 'Oldie For Friday' card, it was made using my Favourite Spellbinders Floral Oval die and Anna Marie Card, the flower was made with a Spellbinder Spiral Blossom die, cut from a delicate peach felt, a couple of matching stick pins make quite a pretty card I think, hope you like it xxxx
Can I please say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of you wonderful ladies, for sending me in cards and a few crafts to help me fill the blog while I am away, I don't take craft stuff as we don't have room and camping isnt the best place to card make, I could just imagine Paul's face if I handed him my PLatinum machine a huge bag of craft stash! I think he may say NO chance!
I will endeavour to get a post up every day, should one not load for what ever reason I will try and rectify it, I don't think we will have Internet for the first few days though as its a little expensive.
I have managed to make challenge cards for each Monday we are away! All being well I should be able to download your cards to share on the Sunday.
Well I must dash and get a little more done,
Janet, I am so pleased to hear all went well with your Pre-op, that alone can be a trial of a day, you are prodded and poked and pricked way too much, I guess it can be any day now for your Op, the sooner the better, so you can recover and get back to Marigny. I will be thinking of you my lovely xxx
Love and hugs to all of you
