One day more..another day another destiny!

A bit of a rousing Les Mis chorus to start the day :-) and a couple of sneak peeks made using the same stamp from the new collection that Sheena launches tomorrow.

The show times are confirmed as 9 a.m., 1p.m. and 6 p.m. on Create and Craft.

Both cards have been made using a gorgeous vintage floral and the sentiments plate. The first is distress inky background and a distress ink / faux bleached topper that was then triple embossed.

Then a different style / colour for me with the same stamp used to make a pretty pastel card
This stamp is going to be a really useful one for several occasions I think.

So you know the drill hide the remote control now/ book the sofa or set those recording devices :-)
Have a great day!

Listen do you want to know a secret? Ooo ee Ooo

Yep, today's earworm on the theme of mystery comes courtesy of the Beatles. ( Just be grateful that you can't hear the tuneless humming!)

Today's card is another from the new stamps that launch on Thursday on Create and Craft at 9 a.m. and again, I think would be good for a fella:

I used 3 Luminarte silks; Pretty Peridot, Yellow Rose and Cinnamon Brown firstly on the back of the acetate topper, and on the embossed panel using Sheena's distress embossing folder and on the ivy embellishment which again was made using Sheena's ivy folder. The stamp and sentiment are from the new stamps and finally the backing paper is the Ivy embossing folder with a hint of Pebeo Gilding wax.

One more peek tomoz - have a great day!

It's a mystery, oh it's a mystery....

Respect to one of my fav Toyah songs but this particular mystery is courtesy of wor Sheena and the launch of the new Mystery stamps. Paying homage to Miss Marple, Morse, Agatha Raisin and others of that ilk, they are sure to appeal!

The stamps launch this Thursday on Create and Craft at 9 a.m., 2p.m. and 6 p.m. Today's sneak peek is using the fab typewriter...I think it would make a great card for a fella and a change from the usual sport or booze images:

The typewriter ribbon is plain ribbon coloured using spectrum noir pens

More sneak peaks tomorrow :-)
