Productive Day getting Inky

Last Friday I loaded my 'Stampin'up' gear into the car and went to spend the day in Strathalbyn with Donna (my technical advisor & member of my 'Design Team' which is just her and I doing what we do best!) As you can tell by the end of the day we were in a mess... That's how you can tell you have been productive!!! (I think anyway)
Here is a close up of our work space....

...and a wider shot!

I made 4 cards this day. Donna made 3. The following card was number 4 for me! (for memory!)
I am not gonna let you see all of them at once but will spread them out over the next couple of weeks....

I think this was my third card

I set Donna a challenge... To make a card using the 'flower fusion' felt flowers!
I think she did a really nice job... Well done Donna!

(the little heart & flourish on this card is NOT a "stampin'up" stamp but Donna NEEDED a little flourish to finish the card!)
We tried to keep all the cards simple but nice... I think we accomplished this!!! It was a great day spent sharing ideas, motivating one another, talking and simply creating!!! I highly recommend it!!!
So until next time, be kind to yourself, make time for yourself, take care of yourself and let your creativity flow!!!

Three Little Cards with Three Little Words

A Big Hello to anyone who reads this Blog,

Now this is the very first entry I have made without my Technical Advisor (Donna) helping me... I uploaded my photos all by myself and from then on I have no idea what I did!!! LOL

In the last couple of days I have been creative! I think I have found my mojo again... it has been missing for quite a while now!

I must say, I think I am liking my new 'Pocket Silouettes' stamp set, they are just so cute and versatile! But they are little - perfect for cards in my opinion!

I have been putting all the cards I have made for "Stampin'up" workshops into a display book. One thing that has stood out, is that I have done alot of ripping of card stock and tied knots in nearly all the ribbon elements... so that must be my 'thing' at the moment.

Well I do hope you like this weeks work, or even better get inspired by it!!!

So people - go stamp and be happy!!!
Til next time.......

MWA :)
