A sneek peek & other bits ;)
Well I thought I would share a sneaky peek at some thing I've been working on for Deborah's latest CCC ;D. I thought this latest challenge was going to be too hard for me, but surprised myself. I like to try & do as many of the "set" options as I can. It's something I like to challenge myself with. This time I decided that I would stick to the colour scheme first because purple & green isn't a "go to" colour combo for me. In fact I had to buy some more paper for this challenge. I know shock horror no scraps where used!!! But don't worry I have since used up a heap of scraps on other cards. So far I've made about 6 cards with this colour combo. One of which is now at my LSS for the owner.
I am not sure if this "pen" is new on the market or I've never seen it before. But I just had to share it with you all. I discovered this versamark pen (whilst buying purple bazzil) yesterday & am in love with it. I had another embossing pen that left a blue line where ever you used it, so I never used it much as it tended to make everything look icky. But this wonderful pen is perfect. Not only does it go on clear like the ink pad, but it has two ends so you can get into really small areas. I think that this is my new go to item, so expect a lot of embossing in my future cards ;D. Btw I wasn't paid to say these things.
Today I went to a instore demo for Justrite stamps at my LSS. The lady doing the demo was so very lovely & her cards are fantastic. Kathy is also a DT member I would recomend checking out her blog here. I had never heard of Justrite stamps till this last week. I wasn't going to go today as all my babysitters have left the country (how rude!). Em was really good for the whole time we where there, she loves to play in the kiddy corner. In the end I didn't order any stamps, but Em got some fun stickers for being a good kid :D.
Lastly I thought I'd share a photo of my bloggin' buddy Smudge. She's flopped down in her favourite spot while I am on the computer. She doesn't look that happy as it it in the mid 30's & very humid & she has a thick coat. We both say bring on winter!!! The scary thing is her personality is very simular to my dd Em. Especially when you tell her she can't do something. Smudge is going to be 5 in a few weeks, unless her 'ttude gets her into more trouble ;). Tom is curled up under a window - I think he's still "recovering" from going to Preprep with Em on Monday.
Well that's enough dribble from me so TTFN xoxoxoxo
