Sugar & Spice

Well here we are again, Monday, hope you've all had a good day, the weather is pretty good though a bit chilly but can't complain at least it's not raining!
Just thought I'd show you this card, one of the ladies in my hubby's office asked me for a baby girl card so I thought she might like this, I used my cricut with DS to cut it out, it's not my original idea I saw one done on website and thought I might try it out. I don't seem to have found much time this week to get anything done, not even any blog hopping, not like me!, can't wait to play with all my new goodies though, might try and take some with me to my local card class tonight, anyhow hope you all have a good week.

Take care

Happy Stampers Show

Oh no my poor bank balance, been to the Happy Stampers show today at Port Sunlight here on Merseyside, it's a fab day and I absolutely love going, there are so many stamps you just don't know what to buy, well you do, you just can't buy everything which is what I usually want! lol
Went with my two friends and my mum who are all crafter's, got some really nice stamps, some more copics (great for colouring) and a few more bits and bobs - it's the bits and bobs that usually cost more! Will have to save up now for the next one in October, if any of you can make it I highly recommend it, you will love it!

Well off to make some cards to justify my buys. Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly Card

Just thought I'd share with you this card I made at my weekly card class, didn't really rate it when I was making it but I am delighted with the end results, I think it's turned out quite nice. It's done using the resistance method, were by you stamp and colour your image, emboss it with clear powder and add the background inks after, I do love all the different inks and things you can buy, I just don't know how to use them really.
