Evening to anyone visiting my blog.   That's the weekend over once again and I've not had a minute to spend crafting.  But here are 2 cards I made through the week.

 Thanks for visiting, I hope you have had a good weekend and it's been warmer where you are than it has been here.

A very quick good evening to all my craft friends.  I've been at the pc for too long and have set the neck off grrrr!!  So I shall just add my cards and good wishes to you all for a lovely weekend and get busy doing a masculine card for a change.

Not long finished this card for my nephew.  I was trying out my IndigoBlu gilding flakes the other day.  I used  all my silhouette stamps just to see how they would come out..  I only have 2 colours Sheffield Steel and Copper Kettle.   They look brilliant when other people use them but I can't say that I'm that happy with the glue .  I bought them both a year ago and the one that was open has dried out completely even though the tub was closed properly.   Also I don't find the glue washes off the stamps as easy as the hype says it does.  Anyway enough of my moans and now to add the card.  Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Spellbinders dimensional embossing folder covered with bronze gilding wax but it's not showing up well in the scan.  Silhouette stamp was from JS. Sentiment is part of a free set from cardmaking in easy steps. Card and embellishment from stash.
Afternoon to one and All.  Due to problems with my neck I've not been crafting or on-line much but I did do an atc swap with a friend on DC.  She wanted African so here is what she got.
Used distress inks, tree stamp is from Tanda Stamps
African silhouette is from Clarity

Distress inks again background tree is from IndigoBlu
Lion, not sure where I got him.

Not sure where my African wildlife stamps came from

The end of another lovely day!

Evening all, I hope you have all had a chance to enjoy the lovely weather we've been having.  I can't take the sun but love when it's warm enough to sit in the shade.  I've not been on pc much this week due to my neck problems so have managed to make 2 cards
First card was made using an embossing folder that came free with a mag (forget which one)
Stamp is from ODBD, flowers and flourishes from my stash
This card was embossed with my new Anna Griffin embossing folder, free image from a mag last year. Flowers flourishes and other die-cuts  and lace ribbon from my stash.  Thinking of you is a Britania Die (I think)  Sorry I'm not sure of much at the moment.  Right off to watch a wee bit of telly before bed.  Have a good week and thanks for visiting my blog
