Morning all, the sun is still shining here is North Yorkshire but it is definately cooler and much breezier. Not complaining though because it is a lovely day and it isn’t raining. Are you all enjoying the Olympics? I love them, I really do. It is great watching sports that you wouldn’t usually watch. I got really into the beach volleyball yesterday between Great Britain and Canada – what a nail biter it ended up!
I thought I would share one of my Morehead cards with you that I made for the Create and Craft shows. Did you all manage to buy your POTW? I have to admit these are one of my favourite releases so far from Crafter’s Companion although I say that every time haha.
I think this is proving to be a really popular stamp and I am not surprised, it is just so sweet. I have also coloured this using just my grey pens ….. you can see that post by clicking HERE.
I wanted to try something a bit different to my usual bows so I looped my ribbon and secured with a brad. I love how it looks and will be making more like this in future. Plus I have so many brads that I hardly use any more.
I forgot to write the colours down that I used but I promise to try and be good from now on though.
I am going to enter my card for the following challenges…
Whimsy Inspirations – Summer Fun
Secret Crafter – Bright & Cheerful
Have a great day, I am going to do a bit of crafting I think – oh what a surprise lol xxxxxx

Good afternoon and what a great day it is. I have just finished watching the opening ceremony from the Olympics. Wow …… what an amazing show it was …. I feel ever so proud to be British. I have to say how touched I was seeing Muhammad Ali with the Olympic flag, it brought more than a couple of tears to my eyes. Let’s hope we have an enjoyable games without any scandal shadowing the performances.
Onto my card for today. I am sharing a gorgeous image with you all from Just Inklined.
Now that looks like a good idea for a sunny day don’t you think. The image is called Serenity and the sentiment is from Create with TLC. I can always find the perfect sentiment from them and they just seem to enhance your creation.
I have a hat quite similar to this one so I may need to recreate this scene in my garden later … complete with jug of cocktail :o)
I have coloured with my speccies again. I have to admit I am really happy with the pretty pink shades that I can achieve with these. There is lots more inspiration for you over on the just inklined blog so please check it out.
Oooh I meant to let you all know that Ryan is playing at the Cambridge Folk Festival today with Brighouse & Rastick Brass Band who are playing with The Unthanks. It is a big festival and is televised on Sky Arts HD on channel 129 so fingers crossed I get to see him later. It is on at 6.30pm so I have set my sky box to record.
The Pink Elephant - Summer
Have a wonderful weekend xxx

Morning everyone, sorry I didn’t get back last night to post a card after work. Had a busy day and was just shattered. I did catch the preview show which I had recorded on Create and Craft for the new Morehead launch from Crafter’s Companion. I think it is certainly going to be a sell out when it launches today. You can catch the live shows at 12 midday, 3pm and 5pm so make sure you get those items in your baskets as quick as you can.
I just love this sweet image. I have also used the pretty butterfly and dragonfly stamps which are on the stamp sheet.
She has been coloured with Spectrum Noir pens and some stickles has been added to the butterfly and dragonfly wings.
I sanded some scrummy embossed Core’dinations card and finished with Prima flowers. The backing papers have been printed from the Morehead CD-Rom onto satin paper.
Here are the links to what I used…..
Crafty Catz – All that Glitters
Finally I just want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my lovely dad xxxxxx

So as you know it is our favourite time of the week on Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog because it is time for a new challenge. Today we have a fab sketch by the equally fab Dawny p – the cleverist(is that even a word??) sketcher in the land :o)
The design team are all showcasing products by My Favourite Things (MFT). You do not have to but it would be great to see what you create if you do.
I have used a super cute image from Whiff of Joy – she is just so adorable.
The image is coloured with my copics and the colours were chosen from my papers which are by Basic Grey.
