This morning I was in spring clean mode, and decided that my craft room could do with a tidy up, well I've been through every box and every drawer and have thrown away so much stuff. Nothing of any use, but just little scraps of paper that I think will come in handy one day and boxes that I think are too pretty to throw away but just end up sitting on the shelf gathering dust. After spending all afternoon tidying, I thought I'd have a go with some of my new goodies. I sat and coloured lots of stamped images last night and here are a few cards I've made using them.
First up is my favourite! I love these papers, Archaic by Basic Grey. I've had this Sugar Nellie stamp for a good few months now and I think this is actually the first card I've ever used him on! I've also used my new Spiral punch and Tab Punch from Stampin Up! They are fab. I love them so much!
I've inked up one of my new Magnolia Stamps, Edwin with Oar, that I got in the sale from The Glitter Pot. In all I think I have about 11 new Magnolia stamps over Christmas. I love them all and I still want more! I've been trying to talk my hubby into joining the Magnolia Stamp Club for me, but I think its going to take a bit of convincing. I've also tried talking him into buying me some Copic Markers. I'm not great at colouring images and at the moment I use my Whispers pens and some acetate and I paint them. I find it can be quite time consuming and I'm not always happy with the result. I've seen a few sets of the Copics at a really great price, but we just dont have the funds at the moment. I think I've become totally obsessed with them! I need to get selling a few more cards!
I've also been Tagged by Julie. The rules are that you have to go to your Picture Folder and choose the 6th Folder and then the 6th Picture!
This is my little fella Adam. It was taken on the August Bank Holiday weekend. We took our caravan to a little site in Warwickshire with a group of friends. It was a lovely sunny weekend but the ground was absolutely soaked due to all the wet weather we'd had previously. The kids all played in their welly boots all weekend and the fun game was to push the water carriers around the site! They were empty ones though. I dont think he'd manage it if it were full, but we will get him trained eventually! This is one of the best sites we've been to in a while. The toilets and showers were not very good, but it did have its own tea room which sold cream teas and home made cakes, yummy! The site also had acess to the oxford canal which we took a few walks along. It was really lovely!
