Catch up time!!!

What a bad blogger I've been. All work and no play at the moment, and Oh how I miss doing a bit of my own crafting!
Got a few little projects to show you. A mothers Day card and a little treasure box (Filled with chocolates!) One of my many new stamps I bought at Stamperama and Ally Pally. At least I got to use a couple of them! (I must say a big thank you to Rushanne for passing on her box design)

A couple of orders: The wedding card made using another of my new stamps and the Dad card made with a Clarity Stamp. I stamped the motor bike on some copper and embossed it. I was really pleased with the result although the picture doesn't do it justice. I'm not really a great fan of using metal mainly because I haven't really had time to play with it. I ran the metal workshop at the Kettering Retailer Day so it has all become a little easier and I've found it can be quite theraputic.

Back in January I made Bobby's birthday card using one of the new stamp plates launched at the trade show at the NEC. Because they hadn't been released at the time I wasn't able to share it with you. So here it is now.Again not a good shot, It is very dimensional. Painted with Distress Inks. If there is something I couldn't live without in my crafting stash it would be these wonderful ink pads!!!! And I now have all those lovely new colours!

I bought myself some more Promarkers at Ally Pally because I want to get to like them!!! Only had a few colours so thought I needed more to play with! You know how it is! Anyway I'm still not overwhelmed with them. I know so many of you love them so what am I doing wrong? Any ideas would be greatly recieved!!!

Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I really appreciate it. I'm not promising to keep up to date with my blogging because I just know that won't happen! But I will try!!!
Love Lynne. XXX
