Just Gorjuss!!

Morning everyone.  So sorry that I haven't been round visiting you all.  I spent over a week trying to sort out my new craft room and then had to abandon it in order to begin on my sample cards for The Glitter Pot's Summer Spectacular which is this weekend.  Am now in 'major panic' mode as so far I haven't got my cards finished!!  I'll try and visit you all next week!!

Meanwhile here are a couple of peeks as to what I'll be up to this weekend.

Hopefully by Saturday they will have made it onto some cards - eeeeekkkkkkk!!!

I think that I am right in saying that there are 8 demonstrators for the weekend so there will be plenty to see.  If any of you make it, please do stop by my table and say 'Hi!'.

Toodles.....................................................(things to do!!!!)

Spring Flowers

Hi everyone.  So sorry that I've been quiet for a couple of weeks.  I've been trying to sort out my new craft room!!  What a mammoth task that has turned out to be but will be so worth it once it's completed.  When it is all spick and span I'll take some photos so that you can picture me beavering away in my new surroundings!!!

Meanwhile I haven't been creating anything but I thought I'd share a couple of cards that I made a couple of years ago for one of my demos for Stamp Addicts using the DeNami Spring Flowers stamp.  For the white background I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and the black strip of card was stamped with a white inkpad using another favourite DeNami stamp of mine!!

Just love this flower stamp as it is so whimsical and best of all so quick to colour!!

Here's another card using that same Spring Flowers stamp.

In both cases the flowers were coloured using Polycolor Pencils (sold by Stamp Addicts).

Hi everyone.  My sincere thanks for all your kind comments regarding my last post.

Today I'm sharing a card that I made for my recent demo at The Craft Barn using the Artemio clear stamp set called Sleep.  This mouse is definitely my kind of girl!!

I used a Grand Nestabilities die to make my main card and a smaller Nestabilities die for my mouse panel.  The paper came from a First Edition 6x6 paper pad called Daydream and of course I coloured Lily (the mouse) with Copic markers. Talking of Copics I keep meaning to mention that I have provided a link at the top of my sidebar that will open a PDF document for a blank 2012 Copic Colour Chart.  This is so you can dowload it to your computer, print it out and then fill it in with your own Copic markers, which not only gives you a true representation of the colours of markers you own but also allows you to see what markers you may need to buy in the future!  I use mine all the time and find it so useful.

Here's a closer look at that mouse panel for you.

All materials came from The Craft Barn.

So it has been a couple of weeks and I'm now proud to announce that I have carpet in my new craft room!! 

It's starting to look like a proper room now!!

Cupboards are currently being built along the lilac wall and then I will just need to shift all my stuff that is currently downstairs all covered up to protect it from the dust.

See what I mean????

And there's more behind those clear boxes!!

And then there's the other side of the room!!!!!!!!

Oh dear!!!!!  Do you ever get the feeling that I have too much stuff as all of these boxes are full to overflowing?????
