Where'd April go???

Haven't blogged for a little while but that doesn't mean I haven't been crafting! I have been teaching myself to watercolour... but more of that later maybe. I have been REALLY puzzling over a card for my nephew... (Oh I SO love making cards for boys and men - are the two different? I'm not so sure!!!)

I decided that the caterpillar from Alice is a bit of a cool dude (much like my nephew) and aunt and uncle can always fit the bill as Tweedledee and Tweedledum! I also got to use some very fun boingy springs I picked up at Ally Pally on Tweedledee and Dum! Made me smile anyway and all pops into an 8 x 8 envelope - result!
My Craft Studio CD - A very important date
 and of course the insert...
Happy crafting! x

Simply silly moo and Oh Duck!

Hi All,

Well final post before the big launch of these gorgeous new stamps by Sheena tomorrow on C&C  at 8 a.m. I Thought I would end with a couple of quick cards as I sometimes think that that is a measure of a good stamp if you can quickly put a card together so, ably assisted by centura pearl card on both, here are today's peeks;

Simply silly moo - centura pearl stamped with big and juicy and the colour  just drawn out with a damp brush and the whole lot trip embossed. I think the dotty card gives the whole thing a slightly retro feel?

 Next and finally a quick Oh Duck! Centura pearl background and radiant rain dabbers spritzed with blue pearl for added bling! Image embossed with WOW black glint and then matted onto so mod  coredinations

Enjoy the shows tomorrow - I know I will! xxx
