Rain, Rain Go away.....

Well I don't know about you, but I am really fed up with all the rain we have having here in my part of the country....grrrrrrr....grey days are really depressing....I suppose it could be could be snow like last year...but I think I would prefer snow at least there would be the odd crisp sunny day...

Anyway...I'll get on with what I'm here for have been making cards as I have a Craft Fair in February...unfortunately its the day after Valentines so I haven't made any cards for that, but I did make one for this months Clearly Besotted Challenge - Love.

I am totally 'besotted ' ( with Stephanie's stamps and bought loads from her recent releases cant wait for the next I used a spotty heart from the 'Love Heart' set.  I stamped in red and clear embossed it on vellum which I cut into a tag, I also embossed the sentiment from the 'Love Birds' set. I layered it up with a plain white tag and added a shiny button and twine.
I layered the spotty paper with red cardstock so just a tiny bit shows to bring out the red accents.
I hope you will pop over the check out the fab DT creations...great inspiration!!
Now while I had my CB stamps out I made a couple of really simple cards to stock up with for the craft fair.  CB stamps are just perfect for a great CAS look.
for this I used the 'You Are' stamp set and the 'Happy Birthday' is from the 'Sentiments' set.  I stamped in SU ink and just highlighted some petals with Wink of Stella glitter pen.
for this one I used the 'Butterfly Wishes' set.  Again I used SU ink and highlighted the wings with Wink of Stella Glitter pen.
I used the Autumn Flowers set for this one...I think these are great for male cards.  I used SU ink again, tied a little twine and added a few 'Nailheads'.
I going to spend the rest of the day in the craft room, I'm waiting for a BT Broadband Hub to be delivered as I am changing ISP.  I hope it all goes well, I'm told its quite easy, just follow the instructions....hmmm yes well we'll see.
I think Ollie has the right idea today...he hasn't budged from here all
 Have a great day!
Happy Crafting
