Christmas cards

Hi Everyone, I hope you have all had a great weekend. Mine has been quite busy, Firstly I have been making some card sample for some upcoming classes and then preparing for this weeks classes at the craftroom Newton Abbot. After everything was done for this week I decided it was time I tried to get some of my christmas cards done. Christmas always seems to creep up on me all of a sudden and then it is a mad panic to get them done.So anyway I managed to get 2 christmas cards made, One for a little Girl and one for a little boy. These are for my friends children and they will have their names on them when they recieve them. I haven't added the names yet as it will give the game away about who they are for.

I also managed to start my christmas shopping today!! I now have 2 presents bought! lol , well at least it is a start. Well thats me for now.

Happy crafting and thanks for stopping by

The start of a Project

So I thought I would share with you a project that I have started today. This card is for a class that I am teaching in a few weeks. I thought I would use my favorite product on this card, and yes you have guessed it, my favorite thing to use is Tim Holtz distress inks. I have also added in some distress stains, which are new to the shop where I teach my classes. I won't show you a pictures of my whole desk as the stuff on it is stacked high, I am now working in a space on my desk that is no bigger than about 8" square lol.

So here are some sneak peeks of the project so far!! I am hoping to finish this tomorrow and then I will show more pictures.

As you have proberly figured out the stamp set I am using is Tim Holtz Papillon rubber stamp set. This is also available at the craft room. Well I will be back tomorrow with an update and more pictures.

Thanks for stopping by

La la lands Marcia

Firstly I would like to apologise for the terrible quality of the photo, but the lighting here is terrible. Outside the rain is pouring and it's blowing a gale and really dark. The colours in the photo are really dull but in real life they are very bright.

The nestabilities used are a set that I purchased at The craft room. And the stamp is Marcia from Lala land crafts. I have coloured her with Pro Markers and also paper pieced her dress. Hope everyone is having a good week, nearly the weekend :0) thank goodness. I think a nice relaxing weekend is in order. TTFN
