Happy Post for Sarn

Well it has stopped raining and the sun is actually trying to come out.
I got up early this morning, typical really, I always say when I'm at work that I can't wait for a lie in on Saturday morning when in fact I always wake up earlier and am ready to get up!  What is that all about?

Anyway, because I was up early I managed to get the polishing, washing up, washing, sweeping and general cleaning done by 10am so was able to come into my craft room and start playing.

Before I start to get all inky and messy I thought I would show you the first card I made using the Brusho paints, Ryn stamps & Inkylicious stamps.  I was really pleased with the result and decided to use this card as my Happy Post to my friend Sarn from  Stamping for Pleasure  

Hope she liked xx

Unfortunately the photo doesn't show that the rain drops are filled with Glossy Accents to make them look realistic.   Really pleased with this -  can you tell?!

Hope you all have a really lovely weekend
Tomorrow I am off to see my daughter and my lovely grandchildren as it is my youngest grandson Henry's birthday, really looking forward to that, so I had better get off here and enjoy my time in my craft room xxx

Take care

Twas the night.......

Having spent a lovely relaxing afternoon with a friend, chatting about crafting and doing some other crafts, I felt really inspired to use my time wisely.

My friend asked me if I had participated in the Rudolph Challenge this month, which is run by  Sarn of Stamping for Pleasure,   I said that I hadn't and that I wasn't sure if I would find the time.... So on the drive home from her house I decided that I never have time for anything so therefore I was going to have to make time!   So this is what I came up with.

I made five instead of two and wrapped them up in a bow!  Hope you like!
All wrapped up ready to be gifted

I absolutely love the "Twas the Night" collection from Clarity Stamps.  Very cutesy and perfect for the grandchildren to give to their friends
Had to do a close up just to show you the compulsory bling!!

 Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope to catch up with you all again soon.

Take care

And what is as important as Knowledge ......

Good morning to you all, long time no see.........   Long story!

I am feeling very happy this morning having spent yesterday crafting with some lovely ladies.  Seeing them all sets me up for the week.  If only they knew how positive they make me feel ... well they will know now!!

A lot has been happening in my life which has meant that I have not had much time in my craftroom, however I have tried to grab a bit of time every now and then to do some crafting. 

The card shared today is a large 8" x 8" card, larger than I usually make! 

I love the verse which came from Inkylicious I believe.  They do have some lovely verses.
The flowers were made using Stamps by Chloe on velum and gold embossed.  I then coloured them on the reverse side using Stampin'Up! Lost Lagoon and Tangelo Twist pens.

 Off to work now.

Thank you for stopping by.
Take care
