Middle of August and haven't posted.

Where has the time gone,I've been busy I know that.Looking forward to the 22nd, as I have a week off,my first full week off this year.With the added extra of a Bank holiday on the following Monday.
But as many of my friends know, I'll be crafting most of the week.Trying out those ideas that get put to one side because I don't have time to really play.
Scrapbooking of course,will be doing this next Sunday on my Birthday at our local crop.People think I'm mad but aren't all crafters,at different levels of course.I'll be with most of my longterm friends,will all have a good laugh and there are cream cakes for afternoon tea, there's another good reason.
Spent today demoing at work,showing the new stamps designed by Sam Poole.The stylish Christmas set of three were very popular.These will be on C&C on next Sunday at 5pm,
Here are a couple more samples using those stamps.

The red candle has been stamped and embossed with Berry red from the multi set of festive embossing powders, Cosmic Shimmer of course,these will shortly be available in the larger individual pots.The image as then been placed in a cuttlebug folder and embossed,and no the embossing powder does not flake off.Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders seem to be flexible to a certain extent.Then I embossed the image again and cut out the candle with holly. Using foam fixers to 3D the image to the card.
The robin has been embossed in the black sparkle,I added a few more swirls of dots to fill the spaces with a black perfect medium pen.This powder looks a solid black but catch the light on it and then see how many other colours you can count with in it.
Well time to, as my friend Wendy (studio490) says
Make Art.
Hopefully post tomorrow.
