Hello, I hope your week is going well so far and you enjoyed the long weekend. Wasn't the Wedding fantastic? I had the TV on from 8am with all the build up and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I'm not sure Thomas would agree as he wasn't allowed to watch Fireman Sam until late afternoon!
I took delivery of my first stock last week which was very exciting. I'm progressing really well with building my shop. It's a huge learning curve for me but I'm enjoying every minute and I can't wait until I can officially open.
Unfortunately my creative mojo is still Missing In Action (probably replaced with all the IT & web info that I'm trying to cram into my brain) but I have managed to make some very simple cards over the weekend.
The first was made using this weeks Clean & Simple sketch. I didn't get too creative with the sketch, just got out all my flower punches and some paper scraps, but I'm pretty pleased with the finished result.
My other two cards were made using some freebie stamps that came with a craft magazine. The cards are really small (10cm x 10cm) and the images were fab to colour. I used distress inks and a touch of stickles and very simple layouts.
Enjoy the rest of the week!
