Kay Carley Class at Craftbarn

Hi everyone just a quick post just before the footie - Come on England !!!!!
I attended a lovely class at the Craftbarn It was one of the hottest days and we were sweltering in the barn.  The lovely Kay and her mum Janice was there.  I met some lovely new ladies and it was very nice, I was sitting next to a lovely lady called Diane.  I have had nightmares with my internet spent 4 hours trying to get it back on last night, had to re-boot my computer and subsequently lost all my email, and photos. It seems to have past documents phew but I can get email by going into google. So will have definately have to go to John Lewis tomorrow to get it fixed.

Well enough rattling on. In the morning class we used distress inks and a lovely bells and whistles stamp wishing well. The papers were Bo Bunny dots it was lovely so intense but it was worth it

In the Afternoon we used Copics again another Bells and whistles stamp, they are so cute. I'm sorry if the picture is not good but its a long story of having to set up mails and cameras. Here is the second card.
When Kay uploads her cards,  they are much better and deeper in colour because I am a little hesitant to keep going over colours in case I make a terrible hash of it all.  We used Bo Bunny papers and some lovely brown spotty ribbon, which of course I had to buy as I have not got brown.
Well thanks for looking and look forward to your lovely comments.
Come on England ......

Lots of Love Joxxx

Cards for Rachel.

Well I've just watched England and ROTW play football what a hoot. It was really enjoyable.

I made some cards for my Daughter Rachel who has a million and one friends and then says to me make me this card, that card and then I panic. Well before I settled down to watch the footie I made her some so here they are hope you don't get bored !!!! I made some  baby ones but haven't shown all you might get fed up so here's three of them
I used Craftwork cards Blue and Pink soft cards with acetate cover with the baby cuttlebug embossing folder. Cut out some quickutz baby clothes and bottle and used some spotty ribbon I've had for ages.
The blue one is the same again.
The third one is from a stamp set I think its a Paper Salon I've had for years its little stamps in a tin, so cute.

Now for two other Cards one is Made with a French Door Card pack that I bought from Lavender Lane Crafts when I went there yesterday to buy my magazines which they always put by for me. I used Nikki  stamps which I bought from Craftology a little scottish company. They make quite a few of them

This was cut already and then I just put "Again "Tim Holtz background paper then layered a Nestie cut out of a piece of Craftwork cards paper and Nestie tag with a Penny black stamp - think which I have had for ages.
The next one did have the little dog but I cut him out - sorry you can just about see the little dog in the picture above I think its a poodle well I did paint him white and put some of that puffy stuff on it. Minds going its old age creeping in.

I used Craftwork scallop card and used the nesties again. The wording is from a set from Craftwork Cards with the Martini glass and shaker. Spotty ribbon from Craftbarn. Used copics on both cards, getting used to them a little better now,  shading still needs improving but getting there.

Well I have waffled on a bit. Hope you like them. I do appreciate your comments and this is for YOU Kay XXX.
Lots of Love girlies. I'm off now to look at all the lovely blogs
