Morning all

Well, it's not even 8 a.m. On a Saturday morning and I SHOULD NOT BE UP, but my scooter needs fixing so I've got to take it to the garage in a minute.

I have had the most crafty week I've had in ages, I made some lovely cards with Alison last weekend and have managed to carry it on throughout the week - I've even inked up a stamp and coloured it! and will probably turn it into a card today.

I thought I'd show you a couple of cards that I've made with the help of my new favourite toy, the ebosser

This first one I made last weekend when Alison was here, we were looking at one of the folders and trying to decide what you could do with it. I started with a 6x6 card base and embossed the lovely swirl onto it, I then used worn lipstick distress ink around the card, next I cut out two butterflies (diesire die) and inked these up too, I glued one to the card and glued the other on top but only glued the centre so the wings are free, I put gems down the body of e butterfly and small gems on the eye stalks. The sentiment shape was another diesire die! And I think the sentiment is a Kanban stamp.

This next card is a bit brighter, but is finally using up some card I've had for ages. The background is an embossalicious folder and again the dies are from the diesire range, they work really well, the sentiment is from Lily of the Valley.

Anyway, I'd better go and get ready - crafty afternoon ahead!
