Photography & Rain

Very apt words for yesterday and the cards for today.
Skegness managed to stay dry for four hours for us,enough time to shop and have lunch in the gardens.Walking back to the car was fun,so glad I carried my raincoat all day.Would have liked to have taken more photos but we didn't have time to stop,rain was forecast.When I have time to download them,I'll show you a picture of something that became quite attached to us!!!!
Ok here are the cards;

The first card was made using a necessity, Black Soot distress ink,makes an effective, quick card.
The other two used some Fancy Pants papers and distress ink.The film strip I stamped on acetate using Jet Black Archival ink.
If you have any requests for card samples let me know, I have quite a few stored on my computer.
Back to work on Thursday,with everyone out tomorrow I might have a quiet crafty day.

Ladies' Day

I don't mean at the races but samples from the Elegant and Party ladies show.

These three samples were made using our double-sided paper range to which Christmas colours have just been added.
Well I'm looking forward to tomorrow,a day out with my husband.It's only to the seaside but at least it will be relaxing.Hopefully it will stay dry for some of the time,don't enjoy shopping in the rain.
Will post some photos tomorrow and of course some more cards.

Oh Nuts !

The cards for today were made using the stamps from the A5 plate called Oh Nuts.I've been meaning to post these for a while,a friend of mine asked for some ideas.So here at last are those samples,sorry for the long long wait.

Look out for these on a future show along with a new plate Sam Poole has also designed.
Well I kinda enjoyed a day off today,if you call shopping for school clothes and equipment that.At least that's done now..... usually leave it 'till the last week.This year they've gone back to wearing blazers,shame she will only wear it for less than a year.
Tomorrow will be housework and card making I think,and a trip to the local craft warehouse.Need a new guillotine and I suppose I'll look to see what else takes my fancy.

Partridge in a pear tree

Here I am as promised,no daughter to borrow!!! my laptop.

This was one of my favourite cards I made from the set using distress ink of course and silver shine embossing powder.Those nesties do keep making an appearance ,talking of nesties I know I have something to tell you....... but I think I'll save that 'till a later date.

This one used Lava Red Shimmer mist and Black Sparkle embossing powder.
Thanks for the comments,I will try and post at least 2 cards a day to get through the backlog and then post some more up to date samples.
Well I'm going to have to wait to visit my craft room it's raining,never mind I have plenty of blogs to read.
Did you know Creative Expressions have a facebook group!

Missing for 4 months.

Ok I'm a bad blogger,will try to improve that, promise LoL
So many card samples to show you, that are building up in folders on my computer.
Life is as busy as ever,card making,card making and more card making.DO TRY and fit in the dreaded housework,life with two messy daughters I have too.
I had the pleasure of demonstrating at Stevenage for J & C Creations,last Sunday.It was a very warm but enjoyable day.It made a change,normally I go just to shop there,oh and to chat of course.Managed to chat to some lovely customers as well as the other stall holders.

This was one of the cards I had on display,it was made with a stamp from Sam's Winter Wonderland stamp plate.Using Black Soot distress ink applied with cut & dry foam.The deer was embossed with clear embossing powder over Black Soot.I stopped myself from adding glitter to this one and I'm glad I did, just love the simplicity of it.
Ok one more card to show for today,more tomorrow I HOPE.

Another simple card using Broken China and Bundled Sage.
Have fun crafting.
