You're Always There For Me

Morning..

I thought I would share a really quick card for you today from the Stampin Up order I placed at the beginning of the month. It arrived last week so I had a quick crafting session last night when I got home from Germany (I was supposed to be tidying up and sorting out bits for my stash sale).

These ladybugs are so cute I could not resist!


Supplies



I'm hoping to get into the craft room over the next few days to sort out my sale stash as well as a little crafting!

Hope you have a great Thursday!

The Travelling Mojo

Morning... Before I share my Less is More card I just wanted to explain where my life is up to.  I've done so little blogging this year that most of you have forgotten who I am.

Life has been a little more than hectic for the last 2 years due to work travel and whilst I have struggled to keep up with blogging I never wanted to give it up... I'm not sure how often I will be on here but in the background I have spent some time crafting but never managed the energy to type up a post on here.  Over the last couple of months I think I must have left my mojo on one of my travels and have made exactly 2 cards (although I have been out of the country pretty much weekly since Easter).

Whilst in Singapore and Japan at the beginning of June I decided that I was going to look for inspiration even though I could not actually make a card I spent spare time watching millions of You Tube videos and hopefully they have inspired my to try something a little different.

So, I have decided to just simply create, pick up some supplies I want to use and make a card instead of feeling like I am forcing myself to make cards. I'm not saying I won't enter any challenges or anything but I'm probably just going to share because I want to and not worry about using retired stamps on my creations any longer!

I'm hoping to streamline down some of my craft stash as I feel over whelmed with the amount of things I have (look out for a de-stash soon) and ensure my Craft Studio works well for me instead of constant clutter.

Although there will always be travel in my job, and I'll never know when I can post I want to enjoy crafting and blogging again.... and seeing new places is always inspiring...

That's enough waffling... On to a card for today for Less Is More.. and a brand new technique for me.. Faux Bleach..... I used a stamp that sums me up perfectly at the moment...


I finally managed to pick up this little Altenew stamp a couple of weeks ago after it being out of stock . I think this will def be a technique to try again...

Supplies:




Hope you have a great Saturday... I'm off to Lytham St Annes to spend the day with my friend Elaine...

Hopefully I'll be back soon

Geo Birthday!

Morning... It's has been a lovely week up near Lake Como in Italy and I have a couple of days at home now before Dubai so I sneaked in a little card making this morning.

I've not made a One Layer Card for a long time... This week over at Less Is More the challenge is Geometry and here is what I came up with:



I stamped the sentiment using the Misti and then masked it off with some tape before colouring the Embossing Paste with a re-inker. One Layer with lots of texture!

Supplies:


I'm really enjoying joining in on a Saturday again.... Hope you have a fabulous day!
