Sod's Law Happy Mail...

Hi folks...I'm back to share another play day card...more White on White...
I always use waxed paper when cutting Thinlits Dies so instead of throwing the waxed paper die cuts in the bin...on this occasion I used them to create the shadow effect and I have to tell you that I find myself hopelessly addicted to Tim's Texture Paste...it's a pot of  smooth creamy goodness...so easy to apply...just like spreading butter on your toast and dries pretty quick too.
and just when I was getting used to spending my days playing with the new goodies...the errant wanderer chooses today of all days to come home...sod's law and inconsiderate bad timing I have to say...because this month's happy mail DT parcel has just arrived from Inspiration Emporium...
choc-a-bloc with yummy goodies but I can't look a gift horse in the mouth so it's back to the tutorial projects I need to nail before I can take off on my November Holibobs...5 days of Fiskars Fun at The NEC.
See you all tomorrow

Take your time Mr Mojo...

Hi folks...well the "storm" has arrived...lashing rain...freezing gale force winds and a bit of sunshine thrown in for good measure but hey nothing out of the ordinary for this neck of the woods and there's still no sign of the AWOL Mr Mojo so I've had to abandon the tutorial stuff I was working on for November in favour of a fun play day with some of the new TH Christmas goodies and another card for the October Colour Challenge over at The Ribbon Girls...another WHITE creation...
but it would seem that there's WHITE and there's WHITE...the Texture Paste looks white on the card but up against the brilliant white of the seam binding bow and sentiments seems to have taken on an off white creamy appearance...
but I rather like the contrast of the different shades of WHITE alongside one of my favourite Distress Ink Pads...Pumice Stone...love the speckled effect you get when you stamp on the textured surface of Distress Watercolor Cardstock and I'm giving you advanced warning that I'm now obsessed with the gorgeous Holiday Words Script Thinlits Dies...
so I'm planning another play day and am now in a "take your time coming back Mr Mojo" mood.
See you all tomorrow

Twiddling my thumbs...

Hi folks...the weather seems to be the topic hitting the headlines again this week with the tail end of Hurricane Gonzalo due to arrive in the UK today and how bad it's going to be seems to depend on which weather forecast you've tuned in to but just in case for once the weather boffins have got it right...I've put any thoughts of gallivanting on hold...we've battened down the hatches and were looking forward to a mega "marooned in our crafty space" nailing the crafty list session but we didn't bargain on Mr Mojo leaving us in the lurch...he's jumped ship again and left his cubbyhole crew mates up the creek without a paddle...isn't it just typical when you're raring to go that it's looking like a frustrating "nothing else for it but drink coffee and twiddle my thumbs" day until the naughty absentee decides to grace us with his company again. I wonder if he knows something we don't and has hightailed off to higher ground.
But anyway..I'm back to share what we made in the afternoon session at Kath's Klub with the gorgeous give-away stamp...Christmas Cottage from Stampendous...
 perfect for a little bit of watercolouring with Distress Ink Pads...

and a dusting of Chunky White Frantage Embossing Powder...


See you all tomorrow

Mixed Messages Indeed...

Hi folks...it's Monday morning and back to the crazy crafty work stuff...lots to do before I head off to The NEC in a 2 and a bit weeks...crikey where does time go but enough waffling...it's time to share what we made at Kath's Klub at The Papeterie on Saturday morning with the class give-away stamp set...
Mixed Christmas Messages
from my lovely buddy Paula Pascual...
available from The Papeterie or online HERE
with a little fun spritzing session using Tim's new Distress Spray Stains thrown in for good measure...
the gorgeous Snowflakes are from the Sizzix Framelits Die Set 8Pk with stamps Snowflakes 2...also designed by Paula...


And seeing as we're on the subject of mixed messages...crikey what's going on with the weather...one minute it's blue sky albeit a bit cool and the next it's blowing an almighty hooley with rain like stair rods and sure as fate if I don the Nanook Of The North gear for our morning stroll...the sun comes out and if I don't...you can guarantee I'll be drookit by the time we arrive home and I'm not having much luck with the heating either...switch it on and I'm too hot...switch it off and I'm freezing...it's a "you're damned if you do and damned if you don't" can't win either way situation. But I'll be back tomorrow to share what we made at the afternoon workshop and one thing's for sure...today is going to be one of those "hi ho hi ho...it's off to work I go" kind of days.

The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge...October

Hi folks...more than halfway through October already and the third Sunday of the month means it's time to hop on over to The Ribbon Girls and play along with this month's Colour Challenge which is...
WHITE
I had lots of fun building up layers on this...excuse the pun "blank canvas" to add much touchy feely texture...


The challenge will run for one week and will close at 9pm UK time on Saturday 25th October...as always there's a fabulous prize for one lucky winner...
 and
but before you head off to your crafty space to create your "WHITE" masterpiece...pop over to The Ribbon Girls for some gorgeous inspiration from my fellow teamies. I'm looking forward to a lazy chilling out Sunday before the crazy crafty work stuff kicks off again tomorrow and I hope you'll enjoy the day too whatever you've got planned.
