Happy 80th Dad!

Hello to you all,

So today sees my Dad turning 80! A milestone surely, even though he doesn't seem to think so. Eight decades!

I have managed to get the day off to go an visit and I am so looking forward to sharing this great day with him.

He told me that he didn't want anything for his birthday and just for me to make him a nice pressure there then! 

So this is what I came up with as he does love to read.  I wanted a CAS card with no fuss as he says it's just another day! Gotta love him.

I used a Sheena Douglas stamp
Stamped in Tea Dye distress ink and then coloured with aqua tints - landscape collection and aqua markers - chocolate and desert
The sentiment is using stanps from Ladybug Crafts Ink (sadly no longer trading )

Well I really must dash, still got a lot to do and a little surprise in store for Dad later ;)

Have a good day whatever you are up to.  Hope the snow doesn't hinder any of your plans as we have been hoping it wouldn't get in the way of our day together.

Lots of hugs

A very very Happy Birthday Dad...Love you xxxx

Best Friends...

Happy Saturday!

I have lots and lots of card to make today......some for a brand new launch too :)))

I don't think I will be moving far from my craft room today!

Just wanted to share another card with you today made with a Penny Black image and coloured with the new Spectrum Aquas!  Have I already mentioned that I love these pens :)  They are available to buy now over at Crafters Companion  Have a look here    

If you have some Spectrum products then it would be great to see your creations over at the FB challenge page and you could win £30 worth of goodies 

The image was stamped onto Crafters companion water colour card which is great with the pens, the colour blends out really well and doesn't leave any lines when you colour direct to the card and blend out with water like some does.

Spectrum Aquas 
Hedgies - Charcoal, slate, peach, blossom
Pot - Terracotta, Boulder, Fawn
Grass - Bud green, moss

Really simple style again, the die is from Lil Inkers and the sentiment from Ladybug Crafts Ink (sadly no longer available)

Right I better get cracking on all my projects!

See you again soon.
Have a great day.

Hugs Sally xxxx
