We had a lovely evening at the Derby Dabblers Friday night. Liz very patiently showed us how to distress....and it wasn't distressing at all (sorry). A big thank you to Liz to for introducing me to shimmers and letting us use yours. I guess that's something else I need to invest in, okay so dont need to but want to. If there are any other cardmakers or scrapbookers in the Derby area, we would love to see you at one of our monthly get togethers. You dont have to be experienced, just interested.

No card to show you at the minute as I haven't had a lot of inspiration but Ihave been looking on blog, after blog after blog and I think I may have found a little twinkling....something that may inspire me to go and do a bit of playing in the craft room (that ironing is still waiting to be done oops).

Please click on picture to get a larger (and better) view

The Animal Stories and Tall Tales designer papers go so well together that I must go and make a start. Who knows, I may be back later with something to show you.

Have a great Sunday, whatever you are doing
Yippee I went and played and made 4 cards, made a mess and feel a lot happier. Not happier cause of the mess but because I found mojo. I dont see how anyone can not love Tall Tale papers and Animal Stories stamp set-sorry, perhaps some people wont like it but then that is what makes us all different, our tastes. I dont want to overload you with all four photos but

I had a whale of a time making this, okay its simple but that's good to start with.

Did you know, perhaps not, but you soon will, the whale stamp is exactly the same size as the whale on the papers, good uh?
I used the new word window punch on this card AND the linen thread on the button is actually coloured with ink, although you cant really tell.
Here are the details of the word window punch

And then I have this one to show you, again its using the Tall Tales paper. The knot in the ribbon was a happy accident.

Guess what I am off to do now, yeap clean the craft room and some ironing.
Sorry about the long posts
