JUST A QUICKIE.....

As usual, I do everything by the skin of my teeth....(where does that saying come from? I don't know about you but my teeth don't have skin)!!! Answers on a postcard please......
I quickly made a couple of mother's day cards and used the wonderful BANANA FROG STAMPS and the compulsory scalloped punches (I can't stop using them)!!!
BF MOTHERS DAY CARD2
Stamp out your word, I used the DearJoe IV Upper Case, then place it in your punch keeping the punch upsidedown, this way you can center it exactly.
BF MOTHERS DAY CARD1
Layer up your card front with plain and patterned cardstock, place ribbon in the center.
BF MOTHERS DAY CARD3
I also added the sentiment Happy Day using Simple Greetings, these have got to be my all time favourite as they are so versatile.
To finish off, when ink is dry go over the word with a quickie glue pen and glamour dust, adding little glamour dots to the scallops.
A really quick card to make, if you don't want a word in the centre a lovely BIG flower with a bit of bling in the middle would also look great.

WHEN IS A CHRISTMAS TREE NOT A CHRISTMAS TREE ??

When it's a dress, of course !!!!
Here I've created a little bit of art using the fabulous JOFY stamps from PaperArtsy.
There's nothing not to like about these stamps, then again that goes for all of Jo's designs, simple yet effective and versatile.... See, they're not just for Christmas ... Makes you want to look at all your stamps and 'see' other ways of using them.

Happy December everyone Marion xxx


GETTING COLOURFUL ....

I'm very fortunate that I have some fabulous friends in this industry. And although we're all incredibly busy we get to meet up every so often.
From the possie of Leandra Franich, Julie Hickey, Paula Pacual, Emma Godfrey, Jo Firth Young and Lin Brown, only three of us were able to meet last week, namely Emma and Paula, although we missed the other guys, it didn't stop us eating, chatting and playing for the day.
It started with Paula sharing some of her lovely new Tonic products.... You absolutely need the pearlescent pastes .... They're gorgeous ....
Then off to the pub for a rather satisfying lunch, then back to mine where we put Emma on the spot...'show us some art journaling......... Pleeeeease'
And of course, Emma being Emma duly obliged, so out came my PaperArtsy paints and stamps along with my stencils and inks.... After being taught step by step, I can honestly say I'm hooked.... So much so that today after the gym myself and the lovely Polly came b…
