Good morning sweet peeps and I hope that you are all OK and enjoying the weekend :)
Before we get to today's card I have to say a huge thank you to all the lovely people who attended the workshops over at Lili of The Valley yesterday. Both workshops were fabulous and full of the nicest crafters ever including my fave ribbon-istas Mary & Andrea. And I got a chance for a mini catch up with Anne before she goes on her jollies next week. I think it's fair to say that we all enjoyed ourselves and, just for a change, the weather was glorious as well.
Crafting, cake and sunshine too - what more could you ask for!!
Well possibly Brad Pitt in one of the workshops but you cannot have everything I guess and in any case he would be much too much of a distraction!!!
(although I still haven't got over the sight of him in those skanky y-fronts in Snatch - not a good look!!!).
It was lovely to see Lisa and Laila and as it always does, the shop is looking gorgeous and pride of place yesterday had to go to the brand new sketch pads. And judging by how many were sold, I am sure that these are going to be really popular. There's sentiment pads as well as a pad with the brand new not yet released vintage boys (I can tell you that these new images are awesome).
Not long to go now as these will go on sale from midnight (UK time) on the 8th, as well as the latest stamp release.
Have you picked your favourites yet?
Right so lets have a look at a card then ....
This is the sample card I made for the afternoon workshop yesterday and the image is called
It's one of the new release and you will soon be able to ink it up for yourselves.
I coloured it using the following Pro Markers and Flex Markers -
Jack - Cool Grey 1 (pm) Cool Grey 2 (pm) Cool Grey 3 (pm) Blender
Patch - Champagne (fm) Caramel (pm) Burnt Sienna (pm) Blender
Flowers / Grass - Rose Pink (pm) Blossom (pm) Pale Blossom (fm) Soft Lime (pm) Pear Green (pm) Moss (pm)
The pink berries were in my stash but they are very similar to these ....
The leaves were made by chopping up a Memory Box Lavish Branch die cut which I got from Lili of The Valley
I couldn't help but use my new Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders One die set again. This has got to be one of my fave dies ever EVER. No doubt you will be seeing a lot of it on here lol!!!
The sentiment I used is Sentiment – SET 29 - Vintage Sentiments - Just To Say
I added a good dollop of silicone glue behind it to prop it up so rather like my bum and tum at the mo, it wasn't lying flat!!!!
The pretty green pearls are from The Ribbon Girl.
So that's the old card but just before I go .....
...don't forget that the brand new images and stamp pads will be on sale from midnight UK time on 8th :)
Right that's me done.
I am off to take Kyla to Hobbycraft to spend some of the vouchers that she got for Chrimbly and her birthday. If she is anything like she is when we got to Claire's Accessories (her fave shop, bless her) then we may be some time.
Enjoy your Sunday and see you soon and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
