Time For Show and Tell

I had a glorious day at the show yesterday, took in a couple of seminars, my very favourites were talks given by Jane Davenport (Artomologist), and Melissa Kemp (bear maker extraordinaire) sponsored by Bear Essence
So here's a photo of the day's spoils : )

And two of my favourite finds of the day:

Fabulous new washi tape designs (from CRAFT QUEEN) and a new stamp, from the Artomologist herself, Jane Davenport...can't wait to play : )

Going to the Show?

I'll be going to the Craft and Quilt Fair show on Sunday, and I'll be sporting my new hand/satchel bag (minus our cat, LOL) 

I hope to see some of you there...

Stampotique Sentiments...

The current challenge over at the Stampotique challenge blog is to use a sentiment in your project...
I have used this one which goes with quite a few images...   I stamped Perl onto a manila tag, next I stamped Floral Flutter & then drew in the edging using a fine Zig pen.    The images were coloured in using Derwent Inktense pencils.       I also added some cotton seam binding (coloured using some GM)        I haven't had much of a chance to play along with any challenges lately, so I'm really happy that I got this tag finished and photographed on time!!!

Thanks for stopping by...

Washi Tape Frame

Here's a card I made a little while back, I used some washi tape to create a frame around the tag.

I stamped the image (Darkroom Door set) tore around it and stapled it to the tag.    The tag was scrunched up and distressed using Vintage Photo Distress ink, and I added some seam binding ribbon for a bit of colour.

Here's another very quick card I made a while back using an image from a Darkroom Door Montage sheet, and some seam binding ribbon.

Thanks for visiting me...

Are You Swapping?

Are your ATCs ready for the next Darkroom Door ATC swap?    Hosted by Rachel (owner of Darkroom Door), every month there is a new theme for us to interpret, all the information you need is HERE.

I sometimes include a thank you card with my swaps, but for this month I went with a tag (I wrote my thank you on the back)

And this is a sneak-peek of my ATC for this swap...

I hope you are able to take part...i'ts great to receive fun mail rather than just bills!
Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon : )
