As some of you out there already know I had a massive clear out at the beginning of the week.
Found a few things I forgot I had Oops ! Don't mention to hubby ! Plus I have loads more space for more goodies (have you spotted the method in my madness yet)
Anyway I donated quite a few bits and bobs to my niece who has drove her mum mad all week sticking and gluing things to things she really shouldn't have stuck them too, Oops again ha ha
I also made loads of toppers for cards to donate to my Mum-in-Law. Ive been really busy the rest of the week trying to tidy up the stuff I tidied up !!!
Hubby also discovered that we had a dinning table......... Bugger I will never get a new one now !!
Here's a few of the quick cards I've managed to put together........They are pretty self explanatory so I've not done my usual babble ! I've managed about 20 so far so MIL will be pleased too.
It was quite nice for a change just to sit in front of the TV with a coffee and stick them all together, but don't worry I still prefer my stamps ha ha !! I really need to get out more !!
I think these are Red Hot Bed
Not a clue where these came from but they are really pretty if not a tad fiddly, which is prob why they were at the bottom of a pile ha ha I Just Backed them with Artylicious papers and frames from the Peacock summer party CD
This is definitely the clutter stuff by RHB.

This, I think is my fave of the theme plate... stamped on pure white vellum with white Stazon (cheating! I know, but I'm a little heavy handed when it comes to parchment craft) Then I coloured the reverse with Tombow pastel pens and matted on black and gold, and just stamped the border in gold at the bottom,
This is a very simple one, I painted roughly a piece of water colouring card with glimmer mist Then stamped the words, Friend highlighted with a glitter pen, matted on matte silver card. I then made a mask with the single rose, stamped, masked and over stamped, and coloured with Tombows. Then I cut them out and mounted with foam pads.
This is my Hubby's fave... pity he saw it, I will have to make another for St Valentines Day now !
I Stamped the hearts on to the remainder of the painted card I used above and then highlighted the lines with H2O's then just cut them out, the middle bits where a bit fiddly but I managed ok with my swively craft knife, then I just made a tag with the left over and stamped the sentiment, mounted them with foam pads on a black card with a scrap piece as a 'ribbon'.
This one started off as a bit of an 'accident'.... I like to try different types of papers and inks just to see what they do, so I stamped direct to water colouring card and I'm not sure if the Stazon was a little dry or I didn't press firmly but it was really faded! Not to worry I waited till dry then spritzed it with water. Rough washed over it with Distress Ink (I patted some onto my heat mat and added a little water) Then did the same to colour the rose and leaves, I think it looks nicely distressed (waste not want not)
As I keep saying ......Please feel free to leave me tips and hints

Paul found one of those laser pens.... the cats had us in fits chasing the dot around.
These two naughty sods were sleeping on the pillows when we came back in from a trip to the shops ..... Fred looks like he's been really busted.... Alfie was more annoyed at the fact I woke her with the flash.
They are soooo cheeky
