Trick Or Treat

Morning peeps

I haven't worn nail vanish for years because of working with fresh food, it was always to much effect to have to take it off before I went to work, but now with this new job, I don't have that problem.  So I decided to do my nails last night for the first time in ages, what a mistake, I had messed them up within half an hour and landed up having to take it all off again, I just can't sit still long enough for them to dry.


Anyway, I have made a clean and simple Halloween card this morning.  The digital stamp is called Happy Halloween from Aurora Wings and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Black card stock

Xcut Spider Wed die

The Winter Blues

Evening peeps

Trying to plan a day out for my Mum's 70th birthday is proving to be harder then we thought.  We can't seem to decide on what she would enjoy and when my son comes up with an idea, it costs to much money.  How people can afford to spend a week in London is beyond me.


Anyway, my brain was starting to hurt, so I gave up and decided to craft instead.  The digital stamp on this card is called Frosted Fox from Polkadoodles and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Silver mirror card stock
Digital patterned paper

Evening peeps

I'm not sure have I am still awake, it's been a manic and I had to be up a 3 this morning to go to work.  I pleased with the fact that I managed to work 6 pallets of grocery stock in 2 hours, even if I was worn out by the end of it.
