Double craft day again this week!

Woo-hoo, I get to have two craft sessions again this week. Lisa came round mine today and we had fun getting inky. I was very good and backed up 3 ATCs that just had to go off in the post today, I am terrible at deadlines and have had to send them first class as they are due in tomorrow (I only made them last night and today!!) I then had a play and made this... 

I decided to call it Big Birds.

I'm getting my alcohol inks out now and I'm off to have a play :)

Crafting together

Crafting together with Lisa and Michelle every week is fun, but this week Michelle couldn't make Tuesday so I tried to re-arrange for Thursday but Lisa couldn't make it that day. So I was the lucky one that got to have 2 crafting sessions this week :) Tuesday at Lisa's and yesterday at Michelle's house.

Here's what I made on Tuesday...
the one at the end was a happy mistake, I didn't mean to stamp her face but after catching her slightly I stamped away, and decided she'd be called Tattooed :) The background on the first one was stamped using a Big & Juicy pad then I used a watercolour brush all over. The middle one is one of Lisa's smackin' acetate backgrounds and the last I inked all around her with sponges.

After nearly making a Birthday card at Michelle's I went on to make a punched ATC... 

...quite different to the first three :)

Punching again

I had to put the finishing touches to a friend's Birthday card today that I started yesterday, flowers yet again, but I just love the summery DCWV glitter backing paper and I made use of Michelle's gorgeous Martha Stewart punches (they are fantastic punches) This is the first time I've made a three fold card and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a Stampin Up one. 

As it's different to my summer tub ATC I shall be entering it into the Sir Stampalot punch challenge for this month.

Another Birthday

My eldest daughter is now 9, the years are really flying by. We had a lovely weekend together and I took her and her 2 best friends to the cinema to see The Tooth Fairy, a very good, funny film, we all enjoyed it. This is the card I made her...

...and I shall enter it into the Crafts & Me Birthdays Challenge. The image is another from Sweet Pea stamped by my friend Lisa. Hope you like it :)

Sweet Lady

I am always over at Docrafts and I have made some lovely friends over there. I can be found chatting on the ATC forum. They are a lovely bunch of ladies and whenever someone needs a little cheering up you can guarantee there will be someone there to help. This is a RAK I made for a lady over there, I think the purples (even though they look more blue on the photo!) and yellows will be sure to bring a smile. I love that set of stamps and even though I can use them at Lisa's I just know that I will have to have them!! You can find them over at The Stamp Man :) It's a set called Butterfly Beauties, isn't it gorgeous?

For a dear friend...

I started these over at our crafty session at Lisa's on Thursday and finished them the weekend, I really enjoyed using my H2Os for the first time in a very long time. They are for a friend over at Docrafts where I swap most of my ATCs, hope she likes them :)
I look forward so much to the weekly crafting session with Lisa and Michelle, it's lovely playing with all those extra stamps! A big thank you to Lisa for these 2 gorgeous backgrounds.

I love using punches and can't resist buying new ones. I had fun making this summer tub ATC using an X-cut small flower punch and a tiny leaf punch I have. The tub is from a set of stamps by Card-io. Dragonflies, grass and crackle are stamped on a brayered background.

I used pebebo volume touch for the centre of the flowers and puffed it up by heating with a heat gun. I will enter this in the Sir Stampalot Challenge

Hello all :)

Encouraged by my good friend Lisa, I finally got round to making my blog. I'm hoping that this will encourage me to switch off my computer and get crafting! I have many, many stamps just screaming out to be stamped for the first time and my inks will be drying up if I neglect them any longer, lol. So, fingers crossed I don't get too distracted blog hopping to some gorgeous pages out there, and hopefully I'll very soon be uploading my new cards.

Thanks for dropping by,
Kay :)
