Welcome to my world!

My world of stamping has now taken on a big change, and has become 'My world of Crafting'. Hopefully I can get back to the routine of more regular blogging.

No mojo!

And I thought I was going to craft all day long. WRONG!! After a late start, I went down to our local craft warehouse (not needing anything but £75 later), into the supermarket next door for bread flour, visit a very sick friend and then it's lunchtime.Oh dear, just remembered its QVC's craft day so best have the TV on, just in case there's a 'must have'. Yes, there were a few and yes I had to have them! Turn the TV off before there's a disaster - too much money spent.

So sat down to make a card or two and couldn't decide what. Printed a few toppers from Triple Treasures Christmas CDs that came yesterday but no - not quite what I really wanted to do. So got the recently acquired Prismacolors and Sansador to have a play with the stamps I had bought this morning. All cute of course. And here's the results - very quick cards but quite pleased with the results for a first time with Prismas, Sansador and cotton buds. More practice needed me thinks!!

Very quick 50th birthday card

Well, it had to be done. The plumber image from CardToonz by Andy Carolan ,on Joanna Sheen's website, was ideal. Backing paper printed, image cut out, plunger and pencils on 3D foam pads and a few handy peel offs. Done with half an hour to spare.
Would rather stay in and craft but gotta go out. Never mind , there's always tomorrow.

At last....

I've actually got round to making a card and putting it on my blog -hurrah!! I was watching TV last night and wanted to be doin something as well so got the newly acquired polychromos out with a few ready stamped images and coloured to my heart's content. Trying to use colours I would not normally use, once it was done I immediately knew which backing paper I was going to use - a CraftWorks pearly pastel harlequin paper I'd bought in Harrogate about 3 years ago.
Just matted on a shiny card with a narrow border showing to 'lift' it and a flora doodle with a large brad centre. Three clear sticky butterflies and here it is. Easy!
I just love those polychromos but have to master the art of using Sansador to blend. So... back to the drawing board. Must make a male 50th birthday card for the party tonight and it's 5 to 5 now!!!
