Just One More Sleep!

I am so looking forward to a full day of Christmas paint fusion tomorrow at Sheena Douglass' workshop at Port Sunlight!

Everything's in my craft trolley waiting for tomorrow, apart from my lunch and drinks of course, they're in the fridge.

I've been bad about fusioning over the last few weeks, though I have a couple of cards with fusion in the background.  I'll be putting up pics over the next couple of weeks - as usual, once I've actually taken the photos :-)

No matter what I think of my workshop projects (which in themselves will be fab, it's just my interpretation I'm not so sure about lol) I will post pics of my attempts, so feel free to criticise - as always I am open to any comments good or bad.

Well, time for me to finish off the last few bits and pieces before heading up for a good night's sleep.  I'm usuing the "Christmas principle" tonight - the sooner I go to bed the sooner tomorrow will arrive :-)

Have a great night yourselves and I hope you're enjoying your weekend whatever you're doing.

Happy crafting

Another post already?

Well, can you believe I’m posting again without waiting for Christmas to arrive?  Maybe I should have warned you to sit down first *grins*

I thought I’d show you a couple of birthday cards I’ve done which will be going into a “for sale” box I’m doing for someone.

They’re both from the same decoupage pad from Dovecraft designed by Helz Cuppleditch called Cookie’s Birthday.  The pads include 4 sheets of decoupage, 2 each of 2 designs and 2 each of 4 coordinating backing papers.  The decoupage and 2 of the backing papers are glittered, the 2 unglittered (hmmm is that a word?) papers are double sided.

The first is Cookie’s Little Extras

Dog Parcel web

I’ve edged the layers with Distress Inks and embossed a Woodware parcel stamp with a clear holographic powder.  The greeting is from Hero Arts stamped with Dusty Concord and also embossed with clear holographic.

The second is Cookie with his birthday cake

Dog Cake web

I’ve made it in a similar way to the card above, again using Distress Inks, a Woodware parcel stamp and a small Dufex greeting.  I think the glittering on the decoupage shows more clearly in this photo, as does the clear holographic embossing.

Well that’s it from me for today, happy crafting
