Back Home

Morning Peeps, well what a contrast sitting in a garden in 80 degrees then coming home to 10cms Snow,  still it lo0ks very pretty out of the window and all the while I do not have to go out in it I will be happy for it to stay.


Had a fabulous time in California, it was just the best time staying with my Brother, Sister in Law and Nephews, I was spoilt rotten and really found it hard to say goodbye, I have not sorted out my photos yet but once I have a bit of time will do so and post them on here, was taken on trips to Newport Beach, Bilbao Island and the fabulous Laguna Beach, now they are what I think of as the ultimate holiday destinations.  Whilst sitting in the garden I was surrounded by the most beautiful Humming Birds, they are so tiny and move so fast  and with the weather in the 80’s  it felt really exotic.  I will certainly go back, hopefully next year.


Had great time at CHA meet some lovely people and made lots of new friends, the Crafters Companion Stands were always busy and Spectrum Noirs were a terrific hit there, didn’t have too much time to mooch around but cannot say I saw much that knocked me out, although the Rangers Stand was inspirational as was Tim Holtzs demonstration, I am defo going to have the new Distress Markers.  I was also impressed with the Prima and Bo  Bunny Stands.  Will give more bulletins when I have sorted my head out, at the moment it is just full of everything I saw and  did.





Found it hard to get down to making a card today, but persevered and finished this one.  I have used Neenah Classic Card to stamp and colour my image of  Tilda with Daisy and the Very Old Magnolia Heart Stamp, I have used Spectrum Noirs to colour the images  (colours below).


The papers are from the Magnolia Sweet Crazy Love Paper Collection, went a bit made with Heart Dies and Punches, for the two larger hearts I have used Nestabilities Heart Dies, The Border is Martha Stewart Punch, and the lovely doily is   Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily Die.  the edges have been distressed with Festive Berries Distress Ink.




The Spectrum Noirs used are:


Flesh: FS9, FS4, TN1

Hair: EB5, TN8, TN6, TN3

Dress & Boots: CR11, CR9, CR7, CR5

Leaf DG4, CG2

Socks: IG2, IG1


Will be back tomorrow hopefully with some photos.


Its nice to be back with you
