A Crafty Day

>> Sunday, 5 June 2011

Hello, thanks for stopping by. I had a lovely crafty day at the Craft Barn today. It was their summer extravaganza and there were lots of fabulous demonstrations and so much inspiration. The lovely Christine Dark was there demonstrating her amazing colouring and it was lovely to 'bump' into the inspirational Kim Piggot too. I could have spent a small fortune but I was very restrained and only bought the things I 'had' to have and not all the things I 'would like to' have!! My favourite purchase was a packet of Tim Holtz tissue tape which is amazing stuff and I can't wait to use it on a project. It wasn't really appropriate for this card though!

I got the design inspiration from Christine who had a fabulous easel card on her table today. The hearts are also made into a mini easel to support the main part of the card. The gingham paper came from the Craft Barn today, everything else is from my stash. I do need to add some stickles but I was distracted by Thomas pulling the keys off my laptop and I spent a frustrating 45 mins trying to work out how the *beep* things go back on!

I feel my mojo gradually returning so hopefully it won't be too long before I post again.
