Diary dates for C&C and Big demo Day



Good morning to you all, hope everyone's week is going well and welcome to my new followers.

I've been an extremely bad blogger this week and realised this morning it's several days since I posted anything. The last couple of weeks has been one of those periods when life gets in the way and on the crafty front I've had my head down preparing samples for several upcoming Create and Craft Stamp Addicts programs which I can't share just yet, although I can tell you the first of the new programs will be at 2pm on 23rd October, followed by Paper Clinic on 12th November and 29th November. 

And on top of that I'm trying to prepare myself for the 5th Ultimate Rubber Stamping Demo Day at Sir Stampalot on 27th of October, if you've never been to this event before you really should try to come along. This year we have no less than eight different demonstrators all under one roof offering a huge variety of different crafting techniques. I will be doing what I enjoy most, creating scenes using Penny Black and Art Impression stamps and my latest favourite colouring medium Pan Pastels. 

As always there will be refreshments available throughout the day and special offers in store, so I really hope to see some of you, it's always nice to catch up with old friends and meet new new ones as well.

I had better give a quick explanation of my card which is one I made the other day for a friends birthday. I masked the edges of a piece of coated card stock, masked a moon and brayered black Adirondack ink, then stamped Penny Black 3381K Aspire. The crane is from Animal Spirit stamps which I stamped in black and embossed with detailed clear, Sue's wonderful art work is so detailed in needs nothing more.

As always many thanks for popping in, have a good Wednesday.

  9. This is a joy of a card - the monochrome classy look just beats all the colours in my book, though I'm still being seduced! That crane looks terrific flying into your moonlit scene & I love the detail of the deckled edges against the mat layer. A real beauty this one.
    Take care with all you're doing.

    PS - husband on his knees yesterday rearranging the milk into date order reminded me of Daisy inspecting the fridge. Mind you - he can't get his 6ft 4 ins anywhere near into it.

    I've set my sky+ to record that Stamp Addicts programme, looking forward to it! Sounds like a great day at Sir Stampalot, but a bit far away from Aberdeenshire lol! But I'm off to the SECC for the craft show that day so that's always something.
