Another one with blender pen... and a lovely visit!


Hi all

Another quickie today... showing a card I made the other day - again using the blender pen technique with my promarkers and copics...

This one uses another LOTV image...  Fairy on Tiptoe (which is one of my all time favourites...)  Of course, she had to have lots of glitter on her wings and skirt..  well a fairy isn't a fairy without her fairy dust!  The papers are Crea Diem, the die is a Memory Box Macarena Corner Die - which I've used my Frantage embossing powder on to give it that ooomph..  and lastly I used some old Papermania faceted gems.  I decided on 'without' for a sentiment!!

Now.... this is where I went yesterday and who I was with!!

Photo taken with phone... not too clear.... sorry!

The gorgeous Elaine (A Technophobe's Blog) and her lovely hubbie Phil came over to visit Barry and I... and of course, we ended up going to a nice local pub with a roaring fire... and enjoying a yummy lunch with lots of chat... we didn't really need to tape up our OH's mouths which we thought we may have to..... so they managed a whole lot of chatting too!!  And look........  doesn't Elaine look fab - she's lost so much weight... such willpower!!  But I'm not divulging what she ate yesterday!! hehe!   We had a lovely day... did lots of catching up... and really enjoyed ourselves!  Such a shame they hit lots of nasty traffic both ways... hope it doesn't put you off coming over next time Elaine!!

Better go now... my lovely OH has just come home... so I need to go tend to his achey muscles...

Big hugs and Happy Crafting!

  6. Beautiful card Christine, and even more so in the flesh with all the sprinkly sparkly bits :)

    We had such a lovely time yesterday, thank you for your hospitality and very good company. Lunch (fish finger butty!!) was delicious!
    You are the loveliest lady and I always thoroughly enjoy spent chatting with you.
    As for Barry...he is a gem, and I'm convinced there is some Yorkshire blood running through his veins with his dry, quick wit which kept me giggling!

    Biggest hugs
    Elaine xxx
