Only me…



Hello crafty friends, I know, I’m such a bad blogger…

I have good intentions of doing one post a week but the time just disappears and before you know it another month, never mind a week, has whizzed by!

I’ve been busy catching up on my magazine work, I got a bit behind when I was poorly so am back on track now

I have exciting news about a new design team but I’ll tell you about that in my next post because I’ve been playing with some stamps this week so will have cards to share soon

*

Lili of the Valley are launching a new stamp brand tomorrow so be sure to check that out. You can see all the details of the 10 new sets on their new blog, they have a fab new design team for the brand so lots of lovely inspiration for using them

The new stamps are called ‘Simply Sweet Stamps’ and are exactly that, just perfect for making clean and modern cards

This is a card I made using one of the new images called Purrfect…


LOTV Simply Sweet Purrfect


Not as clean and simple as it could have been but you know me and my patterned papers!

Here also are a couple of cards and tags that were for a magazine last year. They are quite similar so thought I’d share at the same time. They are a bit different for me but it’s good to try new styles sometimes and venture outside your comfort zone…

Sorry the photos are not great, because the magazines take their own pictures I really only do them for my own records, most of them don’t get shown on here

These are made with a Stampendous set, the sentiment stamps are Altenew and the papers for all of the cards are Bonnets & Bowties from NitWits

I’m having a hot flush while I’m typing this, always just my face and head on fire and the sweat is steaming up my glasses. I‘m pleased that only Manny can see me – it’s not a pretty sight!!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your Thursday

    I have not been a good commenter... I seem to get so far behind but I want to do better because an afternoon zipping around blogs checking out other people's inspiration is such a good time.
