There's candy on offer over on bevscrafts blog, it's her
She's inspirational and I met her at Harrogate. Bev took time to chat and give me some brill ideas.
I had an order for a special Wedding card for a friends daughter. I was very pleased with my efforts.

I've had fun this week playing with stamps. I bought a couple at Harrogate and I'm going to explore them in lots of ways. I made this fairy card for a crafting friend. The card is an 8 x8 from Craftwork cards. I like them cos they come with the envelope. The fairy is a lovely image.

Found the pearl pens at my local card class they form a lovely shape.

This is todays photo of Archie He's growing so much now. We can't wait to be able to take him out for some long walks. He has energy spurts and gets very boistrous.

Wearing red

I popped into Tina's Crafty Cards for a nosey. Follow the link to have a read why I'll be wearing red on Friday.

Simply Irresistible

Yestersday it was our 19th wedding Ann. We had booked to go and see Simply Red at Newcastle Arena. Wow. It was a the best we've seen them. I danced and sang for 2 hours. I can't believe how much I ache today, I feel like I've got the legs and back of a 90 year old. (It was worth it)

Archie ahs settled in now and is now starting to be trainned. Because he's going to be big we can't have him jumping up or chewing on us. I think it's going to be a long process and I sure he's responding. Although i think my hubby might need more training than the dog.

I've been playing with my brayer today and love the results every time. The colours are so vibrant. I used the glossy card from the Graphicus multi card pack.

I bought a few of the copic ciao pens and love them. There are no lines from the colouring. I love watercolouring but sometimes a pen works better. The shading effects great.
