An early Valentine's card

Posted by Picasa

Hi all,

My wonderful friend Helen came over on Wednesday & boy did we ever have some fun. I just love it when we get together,as we have the best time & it doesn't matter how much or how little we do. We just had to go to one of our favourite LSS. Which is litterally 5 minutes from my house. So lots of fun was had by the two of us. Even Em who was with us had a great time playing in the toy section.

Eventually we did make it back home again to make a card or two ;). This is one card that I'm happy to post. I used one of Deborah's images (The Greeting Farm) that she sent to me. I used Copics to colour the image & some Diamond Stickles on the heart for that bit extra bling. I think the stickles range is fast becoming a favourite of mine. I like it even more than Kindy Glitz!!!

While we where at the LSS we bumped into a mutual friend from scrapbooking classes. Wendy gave me her Zutter Binding machine. As she recieved another one at Christmas (lucky Wendy!). I am going to swap some info (on using the Zutter & using alcohol inks) for the machine. I just hope that I can live up to her expectations. I have already sent a few links to her from You tube. But I still need to show her a few things as well. There is nothing like hands on experience I guess.

Well I'm off to have a play whilst Missy Em is still watching Tom & Jerry ;). TTFN

Hi, Paula! A hands-on demo can definitely help when you are learning to use the Zutter Bind-it-All for different projects. And when you are learning alcohol inks and other artsy stuff, too. Enjoy your new toy! :-)
