Hi - haven't had time to put anything on my blog recently. Had a couple of days staying with my sister and her husband in Surrey and have also been doing extra days at work - the time just seems to have flown

This Magenta stamp is absolutely delightful and it doesn't matter which colours you use it always looks great.
I have coloured with Promarkers, the border punch is an EK Success, glitter is Hunkydory Diamond Sparkles and gems are Artoz

Just spent an enjoyable "Jubilee Lunch" which was organised by the local Methodist Church for members of their congregation and people in our street. It was nice to meet some of the people we live close to and had not yet met - we have only been here a short time.
I really like this stamp and have used in a lot - it is a Stampendous Cling called Crowscape

I brayered the background using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow and Red Pepper inks and usd a mask for the sun (or moon!) Then just used Versafine Onyx black for the stamp. Black gems are from Craft Creations.  This is a very simple card but I think it's quite effective.

I love Magnolia Stamps and this one is a favourite of mine.

Tilda has been coloured in with Promarkers, the background paper is from the Far East Stack and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. Silver glitter is 'Jones Tones'.

Here Goes!!!!

Right here it is my first post - don't hold your breath!! I am very new to all this and not  finding it particularly easy so please bear with me and I will learn as I go along! The photos will improve when I work out the correct way to upload them!!
This is a card I made for a workshop recently.

The stamp is a Woodware one embossed with Stampendous Ruby embossing powder and I have used Distress Inks behind it. The corner punch is also Woodware, background paper from Fancy Pants  and the small butterfly is an Artoz punch. The gold gems in the corners and on butterfly are from Craft Creations.
