Well i had all good intentions of making cards yesterday but not one stamp touched a piece of paper or a pen. Housework took over and then a trip to the train station to purchase train tickets for July when Gracie, Gracies mam Emma and me go to see Madonna. We are so excited, Gracie and i talked about which songs we thought maybe on the set for ages in the car while singing out loud to our favourite Madonna songs. Then it was a trip to a close friends, Audrey to give her the owl i bought her back at the NEC in march, Then macro for household essentials and then i bought a new printer. I really couldn't decide which one to go for and have been humming and hahing for ages. In the end i went for a Kodak with some reservations as i knew they had gone into liquidation but i was promised by the sales guy that this was only in the USA and it was only their camera section of the company. Well we will see whether they were telling the truth or not as i really don't want to be stuck with a printer i cannot buy cartridges for...................... Anyway i have tested iy on a paintbox poppets image and the images are stunning so i am please with my purchase and it had £40 off.
Ok today's card is one of my Strawberry Kisses cards i made for paercraft essential and this is a gorgeous image. I have paper pieced the little image from the Flower power stamp set and coloured with spectrum noir pens and used backing papers from the SK CD ROM, along with some coredinations card stock. I did a demo of this at Frankies Crafty Touch at Darlington recently and i have been asked to put a tutorial up on my blog, so i will try and get round to this as soon as i can. Quite a simple card but i love it and i have used a sentiment from one of the Humphrey stamps sets as i thought this matched perfectly. The corner punch is from XCut but i have searched for link and cannot find one so i don't know if they are discontinued.
Hope you like it.
