On holiday...but still crafting

Hello from the Isle of Wight.

I may be on holiday (the girls and I are staying with my parents), but I cannot be away from hoem and not crafting. I packed a large bag of crafting stuff so I didn't get withdrawal symptoms.

I have managed to attend a workshop (made a card and a beaded bag charm) and went to a cardmaking demo yesterday.

Unlike London there are plenty of craft shops on this little Island.

Myself and teh girls have made so many cards, we have used all the card blanks I packed with us so we will be buying a pack of 50 next visit to a crafting shop.

Anyway we have a birthday in the family next week so I have made a card using some things from a Docraft goody bag, a Forever friends Element and the papers the rest if from my stash.

So here it is, decorated both on the front and inside.

Mermaid Tags

I am taking part in a card & tag swap this month on Craft Swap Forum and decided to stick to one theme...mermaids, and use my fab Anya mermaid stamp.
Two images have been stamped and embossed then coloured in using mica powder paints, the 3rd (black one) has been stamped using a clear embossing pad then I have brushed some mica powders over the impression.
All tags are cut with the Sizzix Super scallop die and I have used vellums and angelina fibres on each one and finished with some paper string which I think suited better than ribbons or fibre.
I am sure when Aimee, my 8year old sees them she will want to keep them

More cards done!

I seem to be on a roll at the moment, another 4 cards today and my 8year old was not at school.
I think a day at Legoland left her a little dehydrated and she wasn't feeling well this morning, she is ok now after a quiet morning resting and drinking (and watching TV and playing club penguin online).
ALl the images on these cards had been stamped and coloured (with my new favorites promarkers) last week.
It was just a case of finding the right colours and putting the cards together.
Now all I have to do is the inserts.
