Bags and Glam

Time to play with my Made to Surprise shoes and bags stamp set. I wanted to do quite a simple card one. I had a few ideas but nothing seemed to work or look quite right, I was having a bad day. So decided to just go with ink resist and blending

I finally bit the bullet and decided to attempt the slider card that came in July's edition of the Papercraft Society Box. I thought it was going to be really difficult so had not got around to giving it the time. But it was amazingly easy I was so surprised and I love the results. This is definitely a fun card and one I will be creating again

Are you like me? Are the social restrictions begin to grate on you? I understand why we need to do what we are doing but I don't think I have ever gone this long without seeing my best friend. We have been friends since I was 10, so for over 25 years we have stood shoulder to shoulder through the tough times and the great times and I now have not seen her since the beginning of March. Of course we have spoken but not actually seen each other in flesh. She lives over 30 miles away so to drive all that way just to wave through a window was against the rules.

A Vibrant Fun Fold Card

I feel like I am getting braver with distress inks and it is starting to show, I love the vibrancy of this card.

It feels really summery to me and reminds me of a red hot sunset and marigolds. Not sure why the marigolds maybe it is the orangey red.

Craftstash Delivery

I have been so excited for this parcel to arrive. It feels like I have waited ages as I had parts of it sat in my basket for a little while before I actually placed the order. 
It actually arrived just 6 days after I placed the order, which for the current climate with the added issues of social distancing and the extreme pressure the postal service is under. I am very impressed with
