Hi everyone.  Just a quick post from me this time around.

This week I am off to a funeral as a very close friend of mine died just before Easter.  This is the card that I made to send to his family.  The background papers were from my stash - I think that the white one was an old Doodlebug paper and I believe the black one was an old Bo Bunny design.

The flowers are a Penny Black stamp that I coloured using brush markers, then spritzed with water before stamping several times onto the white panel.  The wording is from a Francoise Read clear wording set.

No progress to report yet on my craft room as the carpet man cancelled :(

Time For Tea...

Morning everyone.  Thanks so much for your kind comments on my last post.  It was so nice to hear from you all!!!  Please bear with me - I still can't spend very long at the computer but hope to visit all your blogs soon :)

Today I thought I'd share one of the cards that I made for my demo at The Craft Barn on Saturday.  This mice is just soooooooo sweet.  Infact all the mice are from this particular stamp sheet by Artemio.  The papers are from the Daydream First Edition paper pad and the die-cut label is Nestabilities Seventeen.  I didn't have any appropriate wording for this stamp so I handwrote 'Time for tea...'

Here's a closer look at the cute little mouse which of course I coloured using Copics.

Mouse - W7, W5, W3 and W1 Warm Greys
              R20 and R000
Yellows - YR23, YR21 and YR000
Oranges - YR68, YR61 and YR000
Browns - E77, E71 and E70
Greens - YG67, YG63 and G20

 I've decided that you lot know me too well as you were spot on with lilac featuring in my new craft room!!  Brown will feature too in due course as that will be the colour of my worktop.  Here's what my craft room looks like at the moment -
Still a way to go before I can start to move all my stuff in but I'm REALLY looking forward to it!!

Anybody There???????

Helloooooooooooo!!  Is anybody there????  So sorry that I have been away for sooooooo long!!  I can't believe that it has been half a year since I have posted anything!!

Anyway I am back now to tell you that this Saturday (7th April) I will be demoing at The Craft Barn's Mini Fest using Copic Markers.  So if anyone fancies coming along and has any questions about using Copics I will do my best to help you.  I have a couple of more demonstrations booked in for this year as well. Details of which can be found here.

Here's a couple of sneaky peeks of what I will be doing on Saturday.

These cute little critters are taken from clear stamp sets by Artemio.  They are just soooooooooo sweet!!!

I haven't actually made them up into cards yet but once I have I will upload them for you to see in due course!!

Since moving house almost 4 years ago I have been waiting for a dedicated craft room and at long last it is in sight. One of the bedrooms is being converted into a craft room and is currently at the redecoration stage!!!!  Want to take a guess as to what colour it is being painted?????
