Take 1 Art Pad & 1 Piece of Paper ...................


Hi there sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today :)

Hugest of thanks to everyone who tuned in on Thursday to watch us on Create & Craft (I get through the nerves by imagining that it's just my crafty friends out there so it's nice to know that lots of you did come over for a nosey xxx). And how fab was it that Tracy & Bobby's  email was read out - I could barely contain myself and quite forgot where I was for a minute lol!!

I was also thrilled that they used our Mary's beautimous little house at the top the show :)

It was also fab to work with the sweetness that is Leonie - she is a genuine crafter like us and was so excited to be doing the show. She stopped with me for a bit after and was having a good look at the samples and she was really impressed - it was amazing :)

I was really excited to do this show because the stamp sets are quite simply brilliant, and I had a great time having a fiddle with them which will explain my disappearance from the land of Blog for a while!! The other reason for a lack of posting was that I was getting sick of my stooopid camera leaving big black blobs over everything (ya know I'm a bit of a fussy beggar with me pics !!). Well I finally got around to getting a new camera so hopefully the quality of the photies will be greatly improved.

So I thought that over the next few weeks or so, I would share with you some of the cards I took with me to sunny Peterborough and hope you likee :)

The first one is a super quick and easy peasy card which I made using the LOTV Art Pads - this one is from Party & Cakes .....


... and I was really pleased with how it turned out (well it's pink innit!!).

I didn't even mat it, I just stuck it onto the card base - I didn't even give it a trim!!! The only thing I added was a bit of glitter (now there's a shock) and some liquid pearls which I seem to be dabbing over everything of late.  I tied some pink button twine around it before sticking it down and also a small pink polka dot button, both from The Ribbon Girl, and then popped a little tag made from a LOTV Set 24 Sentiment Tags set.

The paper is from a Perfect Pair paper pad which goes beautifully with the image. I tell you me darlins the whole thing could not have taken me more than 15 minutes at the very most from start to finish - probably less!!

Here's a couple more pics .......




... and there we are all done.

I think this is one of them designs you keep for when you need a quick card but you want it to still look special.

Right I will be back soon with some more cardage from the show but I better get back to finishing the prep for next week's all day workshop. There may still be a few spaces left on the all dayer in November (you can see the deets here) but please don't shoot me if I'm wrong - I should have checked really before typing that bit lol!! It's also out Open Day, the last one of the year and it's our Christmas Party. There's demos and mince pies and you can meet the DT girls who come over, and there's mince pies, and there is always a fantastic atmosphere. And did I mention that there's mince pies as well? Oh yes, old greedy guts here wouldn't miss out would she!!

Right, have a great Saturday and see you soon as soon and sending huggiest of hugs to all xxx

Such a lovely card! The art pads really are great for a quick card...

You were fabulous on the show, by the way. I was so happy I managed to tune in and see it, and I so wanted to buy everything! (even the stuff I already have, lol) x

Hi Dawny. You were fab on C&C, you seemed a bit more relaxed this time. Your demos were Brill, I especially liked the little boxes on wheels. I think you were very brave to demo those with all the folding but it was easy to follow and I'll definitely have a go at those. Well done!
This card is lovely and a great idea for a quick card as it still looks likes you've slaved over it.
