Tuesday Twitterings

Tuesday again and the forecast today is rain, rain and a bit more rain, well my garden does need it even if I dont.

Another busy day in the life of a crafter. After my day at work its off to the post office as there are quite a few birthdays this week, I will show you the cards at the weekend when everyone has received them as I know two of the ladies will be looking at my blog. Then its back home to continue the earring hunt...no I didnt find it last night. After tea it will be a little more washing and ironing and then as a treat, into the craft room I go. I have a new baby card to make that is going to be going to the states and I really need to get cracking on items for the table at the papermax show in September. If any of the dabblers or the ladies who come to the crafting events fancy making some cards, boxes, 3d items etc PLEASE get in touch, I would appreciate all the help I can get.

I hope you arent fed up of the Plane and Simple cards yet as I have another one to show you, which I used my distressing kit on. Yes, Stampin' Up! have a wonderful little distressing kit which we shall be using this weekend at the Clearly for You card making event.

Whilst I was playing with the Plane and Simple stamp set, I used Soft Suede ink on the ivory card and then put Crystal Effects on the image. Next morning I couldnt believe how wonderful the colour was, the Crystal Effects had total changed it. I hope that you can see the difference in the photo.

My friend, neighbour and fellow crafter celebrated her birthday last weekend. Here is the card that I sent to her, using my old time favourite, pocket silhouttes. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this stamp set is going to be in the new Stampin Up catalogue as I am sure that there is a lot more that I can do with it.

Enough twittering for one day and apologies for such a long post. I hope that you have a lovely day, whatever you are up to. Thank you to everyone for all your wonderful comments and please, keep them coming. Off to do a bit of blog hoping myself now, to see what everyone has been doing the past few days.
