Busy days = no posts!

Hi everyone..

So sorry for the delay in posting for the past few days. I've been a little bit busy with making sure I had some great samples for my demo last Saturday at the wonderful Craft Central in Derby. Now it was a very special day there too, as we all celebrated (and a few of us were very lucky to cuddle...) the birth of baby Leo. He has been a much awaited grandson of a lovely lady who comes in to watch my demonstrations. And there were cakes too. All made by the lady herself as a celebration treat. Wasn't that lovely?

I also had some magazine commissions to finish off and post, some Create and Craft samples to complete and lastly, some projects for the upcoming filming of Creativity TV! No rest for the wicked is there... although I don't think I'm that wicked really. I love my job, and wouldn't have it any other way than busy. Its the best way to be I think.

Anyway.. tonight, I thought I'd bring the laptop upto bed (for a change!) and lay here to post my little bloglet for you.

I have really wanted to share this little card with you for the past few days, but only just gotten around to taking the photo off my phone. (new phone = no idea how to extract photos without a wire!) Oh the joys!!

I can tell you, I'm soooo in love with this fantastic new range from Docrafts. This is the new Forever Friends range and it is stunning! It's called Kraft Notes and honestly, the papers are just divine. They look quite vintage and as you can see, I thought a perfect combination to go with the kraft card.

I coloured the little bear with pencils to give him a really soft, fluffy look. Isn't he just the cutest?! This is one of the larger stamps from the set of four that have been released, and I definately think the others will have to make it to my collection!

Obviously there are more than just stamps and papers in this range... there are fabric papers, toppers, ribbons, bows and decoupage.. and lots more! So, if you're not really into stamping, then you can create the card below using the same image as above, but in decoupage form.

Again, I've used kraft card as my base, and cut the star from the self adhesive fabric paper.. I have great plans for this paper, but firstly I need to purchase another couple of sheets!! I'm hoping it doesn't fly off the shelves too quickly before I can buy some.

Here's a close up of the details for you.

Well... I'm going to get off and sort out my next project to share with you. It's something a little different, but I know you're going to love it! Until next time.... happy crafting!
