Hot Monday

Well it was lovely and cool in my workroom today,the heat didn't affect me 'till I drove home.Made nearly 3 more cards for the next show and was given the details for the following one, which is on the 15th July.
Below is the layout I made at Anna's crop,love the colours. I might make this one half of a double layout,there is enough papers left to do this.

Birds,Flowers & Embellishments

This the title of Sheena's new show,which is on the 7th July.Lots of different products on this show which we haven't used before,the gray matter will be working overtime here.
Below is one of my first cards I made for the show.

Another busy week ahead making more samples,I'm glad I have air-conditioning in my room at work,especially if it gets as hot as they say on the news.
Had a lovely day at Anna's crop (Scrapping Angels)today,tea,cake,a kit and lots of chat.I'll show the layout we did,once I've put a title on it.
Sue Wilson will be on C&C on Wednesday at 3pm,It will be a show full of summer ideas,great for scrapbook pages as well as cards.....
Well I now off to finish that page
Don't forget Sheena's last show is being repeated at 7pm tomorrow on C&C

Show 's Tomorrow

I know, I gave the wrong date for Jayne's show but back at base we all had the 21st written down. At least it gave Jayne a few more days to get ready.So it is the 23rd June at 9am,this means I'll have to drop my daughter off nice and early at school, in order to see the whole show.
I can now give you a couple more sneek peeks.

Sheena will be doing a nestie show on the 25th June,below is one of my favourites I made today.

Sorry I forgot there were 2 cards on this picture,my favourite is the rose one,just love the colour combination.The shading around the edge was done with cut and dry foam and the Jet black Archival ink pad.I would have used black soot distress ink normally but don't have this product on the show.So the alternative was to use the archival and I love the look it gave.It pays to experiment with what you have.

Well I'm still waiting for Gas man to come,apparently we have a faulty part on our gas meter which was fitted about 2 years ago.So I can't go and craft,oh well I shall have to watch C&C instead.Looking forward to watching Jayne Bentley at 10pm tonight,she is a great friend of mine.She was the one who converted me to using Fiskars micro-touch scissors.

Circles,circles and more circles

As promised here are some sneek peeks of samples I've made for Jayne Nestorenko's show.I know I know, Christmas !!! but we have to start early with our samples to give you time to buy the stamps to make yours.

I had great fun playing with paint and glitter,the latter being on face as well as on the card.My regular shops have stopped saying "Did you know you have glitter on your face?".They just expect it to be there now,it's part of my uniform,I suppose.

There are so many items to be made with these stamps not just cards,watch Jayne on Sunday 21st June 2pm-4pm on Ideal World and see for yourself.

Early night tonight.
Busy day making samples tomorrow.

Sample Cards for Sunday

If you have been reading Sheena's blog, you will have seen a preview of a few of the cards for Sunday's show.Here are a few more to tempt you;

This card was made using vintage photo distress ink,stamped,allowed to dry or heat gunned,then using a damp paint brush drag out the colour from the stamped image.

Again I used distress ink,this time it was faded jeans and vintage photo.The two colours were blended using cut and dry foam,then the image was stamped with Archival black.To give a bit of dimension 3D crystal lacquer was used on the wall and gate.

Hope you love the ideas and will watch on Sunday for more inspiration from the Wonderful Sheena( no she hasn't paid me to say that!!!!!!!!)
More samples tomorrow from another show I'm helping with,all I'm saying is Circles!

Blog ready

At last I can post,seems to have taken for ever to sort my blog out.Having limited access to a computer didn't help,mines very poorly, so I have to sneek on to my husbands.
I'm hoping with this blog to show you some of my card samples I make for Sheena Douglass,Jayne Nestorenko,Cherry Green and Carol Jones.This will give you a chance of a closer look, which will hopefully inspire you to have a go.
Just spoken with Sheena, whose just back from a very busy weekend at Dawn Bibby's.She says if anybody would like a sneeky peek of her next 3 Create-A-Scene stamp sets to check her website out.The link to this is under my favourite website.
Hopefully I'll post some sneeky peeks of my own tomorrow(cards made with Sheena's new stamps!!!)
