This week I have been working on some ideas for the "Holiday Time" workshop.
The lighthouse stencil LM163 I just used regular paste with then coloured. The sandcastle was gold paste then aged gold embossing enamel on top and heated.
I then used two stamps from Woodware on the other 2 cards FRS244 country fields coloured with Sakura pens and FRS261 - the flip flops. The sunhat is a Joy crafts die.
  then I started to look at stamps I'd used in the past and found these cards to add to the Holiday selection.
Those who come to workshops know I like to have plenty of choice for you
 Next week it will be "The Poppy - in remembrance" and some more assorted flowersThe Poppy

This week I've been working on the cards for babies using the JOY baby clothes dies and the crafts too baby feet embossing folder. I must admit these were inspired by the cards we had seen on the Crafts Too stand at the NEC where I fell in love with the dies - I seemed to be lacking inspiration after my holiday where the only inspiration came for my poppy cards but they will be shown later since I need to use one for the Woodware blog first.
Anyway back to the baby cards

These are some older cards that fit the theme. The tractor set is by Stampendous

While covering the shop Val did this lovely card using The Marianne Anja...... die

and Maureen did some Zentangle with this Dreamweaver stencil

The delay this time has been because I've been away on my holidays. We had a lovely time driving to Switzerland with stops and days at Bruges, Koblenz & Heidleberg then driving through the black forest to Switzerland where we saw my son and 3 month old grandson who is great.

Now I've been back a few days and working on some poppy themed cards which will be used for the Woodware blog in July so can't show you yet and some more on the Creative stamping 17  - "The Rose Garden". Workshops for this are this Wednesday 18th June (all day or half day) and the following Tues but that one is fully booked.
I have used some of the new pivot and accordian card dies for some of these cards and then my own "Tunnel squeezy" and a few other flatter ones which I am still working on.

I'll get some more to you in the next few days.
