Oh yes ... I know I said I was going to do the Christmas shopping ... well if I am completely honest ... I did n't get as much done as I would have liked ... in fact ... I did n't get any done ... John had car issues and I was looking for any excuse ... quite frankly ... to stay home and play.
So ... instead of fighting through the hoards of Christmas Shoppers ... in the cold ... I sat in my snug and warm craft room and played with The Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 stamps! It might not sound like it ... but it was proper work I was doing :0)
LB Crafts is joining the shops in Olney for a Dickens of a Christmas this Sunday ... I have n't been before ... but it all sounds very lovely ... I am hoping it will get me in the spirit of the season ... because ... to be honest ... I am not really there yet. Anyways ... I will be demoing my socks off in the wonderful Lin's shop ... she has 15% off all non sale items too ... and playing with Distress Ink and Studio 490 stamps ... two of my favourite things ... so the cards shown are just a couple of the samples ... I told you it was work! Do pop in ... Olney really is a beautiful place ... and it would be great to see you!
I really need to Thank The Wendy Vecchi while I am here ... the background scallop jobby with the red paper and the film strip is indeed from her wonderful book ... I find so much inspiration in her books and she is now writing her fourth ... I for one CANNOT wait :0)
Sadly I am now way behind on Lord Tim of Holtz's 12 tags ... you know Tim ... the man that can back flip off the Empire State Building while decorating the Christmas tree in Central Park with just a jump ring and a smidgeon of Red Pepper Alcohol Ink. I soooo plan to catch up soon ...
Righty-Ho ... I am doing a workshop tomorrow ... so best I get some sleep ...
