I only wish it would tell me what it is. Just when I thought I could see a glimmer of light at the end of the seemingly endless tunnel, along comes something else to slap me upside the head. However, I have taken the necessary steps & will try to remain positive & believe that everything happens for a reason.
I did get some cards made today & I uploaded the pics from my camera – all 126 of them! Don’t worry, Blog Visitors, you won’t be inflicted with all of them; I deleted at least 50%. In an earlier post I mentioned that Jen had brought me a ‘mahoosive’ pile of crafty goodies, here’s a few pics of them.
Underneath the clear & rubber stamps, the embossing boards, the distress inks, crackle paints, embossing powders, stickles & embellishments are almost 3 kilos of 12×12 papers!!!! Plain papers, patterned papers, doublesided papers, papers of all colours, papers for babies, men, Christmas, birthdays, Easter, in fact any subject you can think of, I guarantee I have a paper for it! I knew Jen was bringing me paper, but I had no concept of just how much & all the other goodies were a complete surprise. Needless to say I was & am thrilled with all the new additions to my stash & they will be appearing regularly in my blog posts! They’re safely stored in their boxes now & every so often I take them out to look at them & run my fingers over the patterns & the glitter. That will sound strange to ‘normal’ people, but paper crafters will understand completely.
This is the thank you card I made Jen. She likes blue & oriental images, so this seemed appropriate. The Geisha image was a recent freebie clear stamp from Craft Stamper magazine. I stamped it with Versafine Black Onyx & heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then coloured it with Whispers & a silver glitter pen. The background paper is HOTP, as is the plain darker blue paper, which I stamped with my cherry blossom stamp, then heat ebossed with siver embossing powder. A few embellishments & that’s it, except that you can see I used my CB quite a lot for this card!
That’s all for today, thanks for stopping by.
Love & light.
