Well i had a really really productive day yesterday although this meant i was cooped up in my little craft room all day by myself but i thoroughly enjoyed myself. I managed to make 6 cards, well one is a tealight card and box to match, which is amazing going for me as normally it takes me ages to just make one. On Saturday i only made one so it just goes to show it just depends what mood i am in.
However on Saturday i did get a bit sidetracked as i was planning all of my trips away in the next few months. It looks like Kevin and I will not be having a proper holiday away this year as i think i have over done it. Here's what i have planned and i am soooo excited this is why i need to list them all......
June 4 & 5th London, Kevin and me for our 30th Wedding anniversary, oooo and i have just checked its Pearl, i wonder what he will get me?????
June 9 &10th Margaret Brown and me at a Jane Nestorenko Workshop, staying in Coventry
July 17 & 18th, Gracie her mam and me at a Madonna concert in Hyde park London
July 19 & 20th Madonna Concert Birmingham, me and i don't know who as yet as this was a spur of the moment thing...................
August 3, 4 & 5th Me and Kevin at the Olympics, i was lucky enough to get tickets for the athletics 100 metre heats, so i am really looking forward to this.
Ok enough of that, so on to one of my cards from yesterday and only 1 more sleep to the SWALK Pick of the Day show tomorrow night at 9pm and that's another trip away for me to Peterborough. (I love my new job). I have used the Belle of the Ball stamp and made an easel sort of stepper card, not sure really what it is called but i love it. I have used my Spectrum Noirs to colour and backing papers from the SWALK CD ROM 2 I really wanted a background to go with her so i found a castle background digi which i thought would fit perfect. The only extra things i have added is my favourite Marianne flower die and a new vine flourish die i bought at the NEC i nearly forgot about this one, its the first time i have used it.
How fab would this be for a little girls birthday card, i know Grace will just love it so it may be that i make one for her 9th Birthday in November.
crafters companion news blog, as you have a chance to win all of the new stamps and a cd resource for colouring all SWALK images with your spectrum noir pens. Closing date is 9am tomorrow which is the 8th May. Just look at all the new cute stamps below, i love all of them.....
Ok I'm off to craft again while i still have the motivation.
Hope you like it.
