Kraft Card

Hello All

I've been having a play with pencils and kraft card, never tried it so I thought it was about time I did.
Really like the effect and will definitely try it again.

Thanks for your visit, much appreciated.

Hello all

 Hope you are well.

The card I am sharing today is for my brother-in-law, I used free stamps and new stepper card die that I got in a sale.

I've never been able to make stepper cards properly, so I was really glad when these dies started to come on to the market, I have a few of them now.

Thanks for your visit!

Crazy Cat Lady

Hello All

So sorry for my absence, the loss of my mother-in-law , then we had our holiday in Crete and then when I get back I notice that I had blog trouble, which still isn't sorted but at least I can post.

It's my signature that I've lost, someone else did that part for me and they've broken the link and sadly I don't see them anymore.

I will try to catch up with everyone. 

So this is another crazy cat lady card from Art Impressions clear stamps. 
For my other sister this time, craziness just runs in the

As always thanks for your visit!

Hello All

Today's card is for my boss's wife, who will also be 70 this month.

Used Tim Holtz dies, the flowers stamps were freebies on a mag, the numbers were Britannia Dies.

Sadly at the weekend my mother-in-law passed away it was very quick and unexpected. 
We had visited her on Friday evening, Saturday she was taken into hospital and she passed away on 
Sunday morning. 
She was 87 and had had a good innings as they say but she was still living on her own and looking after herself.
We are still a little numb!

Thank you as always for your visit it is much appreciated!

Good morning all

It's a bit dull and overcast here, I'd read the weekend wasn't going to be too bad so I hope it picks up a bit.

My little cards for today are for my sister,and brother-in law, the ones that lives in Greece, the good news is they received their cards.

The stamps are Art Impressions clear stamps, I got them from the USA last Christmas holiday.
 I do love their designs, although I find them hard to source in the UK.

Coloured with distress inks

I forgot to take a picture of my brother-in-laws but I think it was this one but with 75 on.

Inkylicious stamp, Phill Martin words and distress inked background.

As always thanks for your visit, I really do appreciate it.
