Hels Sheridan workshop

My masterpeices

Hello bloggers and followers. thank you for takeing the time to pop to my blog and for all your lovely comments. I know I promised over a week ago to share these with you but once again technology beeats me. I have some beautiful photos on my i pad not only of my work but everyone elses too and a real fun photo of Hels but unfortunatley I havent worked out yet how to get them on the blog so I have given up for the time being and used the good old faithfull camera. I cant begin to explain to you how we made them as we used so many different techniques but if you  go to Hels blog I believe she may have a tutorial on ther and she also has an article with asimilar project on in Marches Craft Stamper magazine.
I know I am not very good at blogging regular but this next week I have a real good excuse as tomorrow I am off to Langle Castle with hubby and Daughter and son in law for afternoon tea to celebrate there wedding anniversary as that is where they were married. I am so excited to be going back as it has memories of a wonderful day. Then on Monday I am off to Sussex to visit my Brother and all his wonderful family. Its an extra special visit as I will be meeting for the first time my latest great nephew Lucas James who was born last November. No crafting for me for a while then but keep fingers crossed that i get to visit a few craft stores while I am there. The Glitter Pot is just down the road and if we manage a visit Eastbourne there are a couple of shops there. Hope you all have a wonderful week of crafting and see you all when I get back.
Happy Crafting

My Crafty Bloggers Network DT Card

Hi crafty bloggers and followers. Well this week sees the start of a new challenge over at the Crafty Bloggers Network and this is my contribution. This months challenge is All Ablout Men and the sponsors are Just Some Lines. This card is an 8x8 but I have cut a piece of white card at 7x7 and the silver mirri card to mount it on just slightly bigger so the card has a white boarder. i have distressed the card useing Tim Holtz distress inks in Salty Ocean, faded jeans and a purple which I cant remember the name of. How shocking is that. i have used a shaving brush first as you get a more misty effect. The fish are then very roughly painted which different shades of reds and oranges. The sentiment was typed on the conputer then cut out distressed and then mounted on mirri as well. this was glued accross the centre of the card . Die cut flourishes added on the bottom corner and finished of with clear dew drops over the flourish and in the top right. I then went around the edge of the card with inka gold in silver  before mounting. I love any trpe of guilding wax at the moment. Its my favourite thing How about you. If you would like to joing the challenge then why not pop over to
Before I go I would just like to mention that I said in my last post that I would share with you what I made at my Hels Sheridan workshop. Well I will but I have a dilemma. I took photos on both my camera and on my newly aquired mini i pad. The i pad ones are much superior and really show up the dimentions on the projects but I cant work out how to get them on. I dont know yet how to access my blog on the i pad unless someone has put a link on. Any hints would be most appreciated.x
