look what i stumbled apon

hi all
i thought i would share these blogs that i just happened to stumble apon whilst surfing the net. i am in awe at the talent that is out there. my cards look so simple and boring compared to these beautys. i hope you enjoy looking through them as much as i have.
ok i think that is enough to keep you busy. i am off to get some more inspiration and create.

on a roll

hi all
i am so happy to be creating again. i went a bit besserk and made 3 more last night. i also sat down and found a heap more blogs that i can surf for inspiration. there are some really talented people out there. anyway i thought i would share my 3 newest creations.
stickers are from the reject shop. i made my own pp with distress inks from tim holtz, love that man.

got this lovely cake die from spotlight (think it could be a martha one) and just had to play with it. imagine it in black white and silver. mmmmmmmmm just yummo.

another jennifer mcguire inspired card. just so easy to do and i get to play with alcohol inks what could be funner.(is there such a word as funner)

busy busy busy

hi all
well as the title tells i have been busy busy busy. between kids, housework, scouts and card making i have been flat out. i have squeezed in some card making which has been fantastic. it is so nice to play around with all my goodies again and god knows i have a mini shop in my craft room. i have made a pack with my dear friend sandie that we will not buy any more scrapping stuff until the beginning of october that is unless it is cardstock for our cards. well i couldnt even go a day with out looking on the web and seeing what i want next lol. i emptied the cart though and will just have to wait til the 1st of october lol. hopefully we will be going to vickis on thursday and stamping our hearts out. fingers crossed i dont buy anything while i am there lol.
i thought i would share my cards that i knocked up.

these top cards have stickers on them from the reject shop. they just came together really quickly and i even managed to use up some scraps.

these three were inspired by a very talented lady called jenny mcguire. kelly put me onto her blog and i have watched nearly every you tube she has. so simple yet so elegant. if you want to see what this lady can do with distress inks, embossing powder and alcohol inks just go here.

i bet you get just as hooked on her videos as i did.
