Crafting Weekend

What a fabulous weekend, I went with my Mum and Sister on a crafting weekend away, we booked a beautiful cottage in Lincolnshire, packed all our craft stuff in the car and off we went, Friday to Monday spent scrapping and cardmaking with no interruptions, what bliss.

Here's one of my completed cards, the background was done using Alchol Inks and then image (Crafty Individuals) stamped with black versafine and heat embossed with clear powder. Sentiment from Stampin Up and ribbons and gems from my stash.

I'm going to enter this in the following :-
Less Is More - this weeks theme is colour and they've chosen colour of your eyes and as mine are blue thought this fitted perfectly

Make It Monday - anything goes

More pictures of my finished work from the weekend to follow


  1. Great background and a super card Janet.
    I love that buildings stamp and the father Christmas and his sleigh stamp is super.
    Thanks so much
