Still crafting but ...

I'm still crafting here despite the lack of posts.  I can't show you anything because my camera is broken and until a new one arrives I'm stuck!

I'm still enjoying the inspiration from visiting your blogs though and when I do get a camera I should have loads to show you.

See you on your blogs ......

Pink thankyou

New package arrived from Simon Says Stamp! The doily lace stamp was stamped on glossy card with Perfect Medium, heat set, then Worn Lipstick applied.  The Daisy Thankyou stamp was inked with Barn Door.  Added Liquid Pearls and some twine.

Another one for the boys

Used the Papermania Nostalgia Classic Cars stamp set again - white embossed onto Anita's A5 card blank then inked with Tumbled Glass DI.  Tim Holtz styled label die, computer generated sentiment, Cosmo Cricket button, twine.

LOVE that stamp set.

This card is my 2nd entry for Here Come The Boys Anything Goes Challenge

Father's Day

Had to use the ledger paper! The car was stamped in Vintage Photo first but the whole thing was too brown and boring so out came Peeled Paint and an orange Cosmo Cricket button.

Papermania Nostalgia Classic Cars stamp set (gorgeous - go get 'em)
Hero Arts Envelope Pattern
White gel pen, twine

I feel the need to create something pink and glittery! TFL. Ger x.
