Hope you have been enjoying the lovely September weather, I have. We managed to visit a few National Trust properties over the last couple of weeks which has been lovely. We are so lucky to have such beautiful houses and gardens quite local to us. On Saturday we decided at the last minute to go back to Attingham Park in Shropshire and were so pleased we did. There was a horse and carriage parade and shire horse demonstrations which was a nice surprise. Next weekend we are hoping to go to Coughton Court in Warwickshire for their Cheese & Pickle Festival which sounds great to me being a cheese lover.
Anyway today I have three cards to share.
The first one as you can see is for a very special Anniversary for a good friend and her hubby.
For the swirls I used an Imagination crafts stencil and their sparkle medium. The heart stamp is one I bought years ago when my dear and lovely friend Jayne Nestorenko demonstrated it on C&C. It has come in very useful over the years.
This one is for a special ladies birthday. Backgrounds created using various distress inks and random texture stamping. The main image is an Indigo Blu stamp.
Finally a simple little card for an extra special man to show him my support. It doesn't show too well on the picture but all the card has been embossed. The stars have been cut from some card that I created by embossing and colouring with Distress.
Well that's about it from me at the moment.
Hope to be back soon
Best wishes

Pleased to say the weather has taken a turn for the better but a shame it waited until the children went back to school. Elliot started senior school today and Jessica is now in year ten and preparing for her GCSE's.
I have been trying to get some outside jobs done the last couple of days and hopefully I will be able to cross them all of the list this week.
Anyway here are a s few cards I made during the last week.
The first one is a Michael Powell stamp
The background of this one is Distress ink randomly applied and outlined with black.
A selection of dies used on this one. The flowers are Sue Wilson and the others are spellbinders
finally for this one I used am Imagination mask and glitter medium

Until next time

Another Bug!

Two cards to share with you today.
The first I made for our niece's wedding anniversary.
The backing panel was created when I was embossing and colouring some card for the mirror project. The stamped image is a Clarity cut out using a spellbinder die. The banner is Lala land.
This next card I made for our SIL Stuart's birthday. I used the Robert Addams camper van die again. I love this die, it's so realistic when put together
Thanks for stopping by
Best wished
