Forever Friends Wedding

Hi there, this is a really quick post to say that I will probably need time to recover from going up and down the M25 this weekend on a few occasions. On Friday we left at 1pm, should have arrived around 3pm as it is normally a 2 hour journey, we did not get to our destination until 6pm. The M25 was a nightmare, junctions had been closed off, accidents,etc.  Then near by where we had to be the North Circular Road was jammed due to roadworks.  Tomorrow I will be up at 5am, wont be back until nearly midnight, then I will have to go to work Monday. My boss did not give me a holiday because we have new starters in our department. However they are only there for half a day - I could have had the afternoon off! Never mind. She will have to work with a very tired grumpy Sarpreet.

Therefore I am sorry however I will catch up on your blogs and docrafts gallery next week. I will probably have no new posts until next week.

Earlier this week from WOYWW I showed you my current projects, which was a more of a work in progress. Here is a card I have made for this weekend using the Forever Friends Triple Disc. The papers I had printed and idea I had, did not work out, so I ended up with this card. However I have plans for that beautiful Butterfly paper you saw on my desk.

Forever Friends CD

Some of you asked me where I purchased the Forever Friends CD Disk, it is a triple disk and I purchased mine from Create and Craft when it was launched. So i know I am getting the original quality designs. To see the product click here
If you do buy it, do watch the video in how to use it as it as a tutorial for you. Enjoy

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday

Time sure flies again, and it is again What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday. I have made a few wedding cards, however the weddings are in the future and I can not show you those cards until we have passed the date. However I can show you the card I have sort of started for this weekend. I have printed the paper and decoupage from my Forever Friends Disc. And just ready for me to stick together! However who knows when I will get there!

Also you can see that popping up behind the CD, is Crafters Companion. This is the new SWALK stamps on my desk. They will have to be in front on my eyes for me to play!

Scroll down for my second post today with regards to Funky Hands DT Call cards. Would love your opinions on the cards I have chosen

I Won..

It was just the other day I said that I never have won anything in Blogland, nor any challenges or Blog Candy. Then I did!!! I was totally gobsmacked. Thank you Geri for coming and letting me know. Otherwise I don't think I would have noticed until later this week! Over at Particraft, Sue Wilson offered some amazing blog candy when she had 1000 followers. And I won 2nd Prize. I was nearly late for work, but hey ho - i had to email to give my details.   Will let you know when my prize arrives with a lot of pictures!

Here is a picture of 1st prize, who knows what second prize will be. I have had a reply from Sue Wilson, she said she will post them thursday when she is back in the office! I am super excited!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Demo, i enjoyed the demo! I appreciated you being there. Hello, to all the new faces and those who regularly attend. For those who worked in the shop, Beth, I am sorry, I am terrible with names, I hope you found your way to my blog. Let me know what you think! Hope you had a fantastic day.

I did go quiet, as I was not well last week and my throat was getting sore again! Not good at all.

GOOD NEWS! Kims Craft have agreed to stock the new Wild Rose Studio Stamps, they will be only at their Wigston Branch. I will miss the opening next week, because I am at a wedding. However I realised my Saturday is free, however if we do not stop over, I may make it to the opening!

The shop just had the Go Green Collection arrive as well. Docrafts get very confusing and not consistent in what they say! Naughty.  Anyways, I will show the first cards I made and posted on my blog a while ago. Both using the paper pack and the Glitter Transfers from the Go Green Range.

Clare Curds Inspirational Challenge

Over at docrafts, Clare is hosting her weeklly challenge. This week is the return of the photo challenge. Here is the photo.
From this picture, I liked the grey against the blue. This reminded me of summer, a pavement against the sky. So here is the card I came up with.
I just love the new range from Penny Black, Betsy Bluebell and her friends. Will show you the cards I have made with this range soon, i promise. This is  a wooden stamp called 'Easy Rider'. I hope you like the card. The pavement was created by using a scoreboard and scoring diagonal lines, and then sanding it. Using pigment ink and cosmetic sponge I created the sky effect.

Penny Black Easy Rider
