I thought that I had ruined the look of the bird house by adding the texture paste, so I asked my hubby for his opinion,… he said it looked fine, and looked like the birds had poo’d down the front of the house!! typical lol

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!

I had the best day ever yesterday when I traveled down to Kelso in the Scottish borders to do a demonstration for Indigoblu  and their fabulous products.

I left some of my samples with the craft shop and needed to make some more to take with me next weekend, when I travel up to Inverness for another demo :)

I made two of these cards last night, both using distress inks and stains, one using mostly Salty Ocean and the other Peacock feathers, I have a picture below of the two cards side by side for comparison.

Retirement Wishes Book

I was asked to make a retirement card for someone at work who is leaving at the end of June… and I thought rather than making a “big” card, I would do something a wee bit different and make a retirement book, where there will be loads of space for everyone to write a wee message :)

retirement book

The book measures 6″ x 4″ .. and I will be making a card stock envelope/box for it tomorrow evening, with the We r memory keepers envelope punch board, so if you are around at 7pm GMT i will be over on Ustream making it live.

Supplies List:-

  • 2 x pieces of 6 x 4 greyboard/chipboard
  • 1 x sheet of 12 x 12 patterned paper
  • Chipboard Letters
  • Promarker or Copic Markers to colour the letters – I used Peach Promarker
  • Bind it All Machine
  • Pink half inch  “O” Wire
  • Vintage Cream cardstocky paper for the inside (it is thicker than paper but thinner than cardstock) ;-)
  • Stampin up dimensional adhesive
  • Scortape – lots of :)

as always, thanks for popping round

See you tomorrow!
