Rock n Roll

I've just completed my first customers newsletter and included a techniques corner here's the completed project using the Rock n Roll technique of rolling your inked up stamp in a second colour.

Sorry about the cutting mat background!  I've used More Mustard and Rich Razzleberry on a Whisper White base.  The Butterfly is from Garden Whimsy and the text is from the Level 2 Hostess Only set Asian Artistry from the current Mini Catalogue.

Till next time.

Happy stampin'

Market goodies

I've been quite busy lately making up some goodies for the market stall.  I've made tonns of gift card holders and these cute little mini pizza boxes with 6 little 3 x 3 gift cards inside. I've got 8 sets made, I hope that I sell a few!

I'm hoping to find some more time this week to make a few individual cards for sale as well, but I'm back at work this week so I don't like my chances of having much time.  Might have to do a bit of a production line!

Blake's School Music Night

Just had to post this pic of my grandson Blake, very nonchalant on stage at his school music night.  He's becomming quite an accomplished guitarist although heavy metal is his first choice he'll play other genres. 

He gets his musical talent from his mother who plays guitar, piano/keyboard, flute and drums while his grandmother (that's me) plays the guitar badly but I play the stereo really well!!!

Frosted Rose

Ok so I also tried the same effect with Silver embossing powder and love it just as much as the Gilded Rose!

I've added a splash of bright colour with the red.  Hope you enjoy trying this for yourselves

Cheers for now
