Calypso Coral

Ever watched the craft shows on TV and thought I can do that but I need to buy........ Well tonight's quick blog proves that you don't need to go out and buy all the products, just rummage in your craft stuff and sure enough there will be stash in there that will give you a finished product inspired by what you have watched!!!

This is my teeny card (9.5cm x 9.5cm) which was inspired by watching said craft show this morning.

Not so one dimensional this time

Card Stock: Calypso Coral & Very Vanilla
Ink: Calypso Coral
Stamp Set: Precious Butterflies, Silhouette Sentiments (retired Hostess set)
Embossing Folder: Vintage Wallpaper

A very quick post as I need to go check on the Xmas cake in the oven - it is smelling divine!!!

Precious Butterflies

Is it really a week since I last posted, where has it gone??

I was really fortunate to be asked by Jo Austin to attend her craft class to do an SU workshop. Jo, as many of you know, is a very talented crafter and also a work colleague of mine from way back when! I want to say a huge huge thank you to Jo and her lovely ladies for a fabulous evening.

My brayer has had a little venture out this evening. It has been a while, but I have to say I found it very therapeutic. I knew as soon as I saw this stamp set that

a) I HAD to have it!!
b) a little bit of brayering would work wonders with the sentiment.

The card is a bit one dimensional for my liking, but it has got me in my craft corner again. Although I do have to apologise to Chris for spreading into his room while he's at Uni. It will be tidy again before you come home son :-)

Stamp Set: Precious Butterflies
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait & Calypso Coral (new In Colour), Old Olive, Basic Black
Card Stock: Lucky Limeade & Whisper White

I will try and post more.
