What A Great Weekend!

Hi everyone.  Sorry that I've been missing for a bit but I'm currently having to limit my time on the computer!  I won't bore you with all the details as to why!!

Anyway I've found a bit of time to pop on here and I must say I had a lovely weekend (just gone).  No, it wasn't because I was at The Glitter Pot on Saturday - although of course that was VERY nice.  It was actually because Take That were on the TV on both Saturday and Sunday and I got to see all my boys back together again!  (I know I'm VERY sad!!)

Talking of The Glitter Pot...............I was there on Saturday taking a couple of classes and my thanks go to all the ladies who joined me for them.  At the end of the day I didn't leave empty handed and came away with a new crafting toy which I just had to have!!  Can you guess what it is???  Can you??  Can you????  CAN YOU??  Unfortunately I haven't had time to play with it yet though :(

Onto my card for today and I thought I'd enter this into the It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas challenge over on the Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge Blog.  As you can see I used that same Watercolour Resist technique for the pine needles!!  Just love this technique and it really is so easy to do. (Still not going to tell you how to do it though - you'll just have to look in the Dec issue of Craft Stamper!!)

All the stamps used on this card are by Penny Black - the main image is called Gift Of Giving, the pine needles and wording come from the Winter Whites and Greens clear set and the flourish is called Snow Scroll - all came from The Glitter Pot.

The paper came from The Glitter Pot as well but can't remember whose it is now and the snowflakes are a Martha Stewart punch called Glacial Snowflake.

I stamped Gift of Giving in black Memento and then coloured her using the Copic markers.  I used Copics for the pine needles too. (I think this makes such a lovely wintery scene!)

Copics used -
Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair - E99, E35, E50
Clothes and holly- E49, E47, E43, E41, YG67, YG63, G40, R59, R37, R32
Gifts - YG67, YG63, G40, YG95, YG91, R59, R37, R35, R32
Sleigh - E47, E43, E41, R37
Background - E47, E43, YG67, YG63, G40, BG11, BG10, W3, W1, 0

Hope you like it!!  Don't forget to let me know if any of you give the Watercolour Resist background a go!!

It was good to see of all Take That together again ( I am a huge Osmond fan though.....showing my age!)

Another great card Kay - and am trying to work out what your latest acquisition was - am thinking it might be something that perhaps takes large nesties ?

Hi Kay, it was a good class on Saturday, think everyone enjoyed it.
The cards designs were great lets hope our colouring does them justice.
Will get mine on my blog at the weekend.
Now this new toy, you weren't naughty by slipping the Spellbinders Grand Calibur into your bag were you?

It's a gorgeous card, Kay! I love the look of that technique. I picked up my craft stamper on Saturday, and I can't wait to have a go. Looking forward to hearing more about your latest purchase. Off to look at the glitter pot website to see if I can guess!!!

Your a rotten tease, as I read down I was sure you would tell us what the new toy was but no !

Yet to try the watercolour resist technique, perhaps today ? Will let you know.

A super card, thank you for joining us at Penny Black at Allsorts this month.

Nearly forgot, yes saw the boys,always liked their music, not quite as much as Freddy and the guys, but pretty good.

Hi Kay, Love your card, lots of sparkle and techniques used. Cannot wait until Saturday for our class.
Have to make you a little jealous. You know I used to be a Beauty Therapist. Well I used to do Robbie Williams ex girlfriend and guess what he was in the car outside my house waiting for her and no-one but me and his girlfriend knew. I cannot disclose her name as she is quite famous and married now to a famous person. Will tell you on Saturday. He he. LOts of love JO.xxxx
