Crafty Saturday

By being crafty and working hard I managed to finish both my services on Saturday. Which meant that not only did I have time to do the card club at Church but also play time in the evening.
I took my Magnolia and Nellie stamps which people loved colouring in. Stamping Caz did a great how to the other day on how to use watercolour pencils. It has made my efforts look so much better. I didn't make a card using the technique but Carys did. I just love how cool they look in monochrome.It looks like I might have to order some more just for her...

Then after Casualty I got some proper crafty time and finished a layout I have been doing for a few days as there were lots of bits to it.
I bet if you know the song the title alludes to you start singing it...

I have been totally inspired by the awesome talent of Sarah Jane Scrappyfairy.
I am not worthy really but enjoyed the style and will deffo use it again
The papers came together in the first Funky kit but I don't know what they all are now...
Chipboard is Scenic Route coloured with a copper Krylon penThe swirls are grungeboard inked with blue ink, copper ink and a bit of krylon.
great stuff! (but smells like a pet shop...)
This lit is Making Memories Heidi rub ons, Doodlebug rubons, Purple Onion alpha stamps and hand writing.

And then, just to finish the day I opened up my Self Addressed December kit which had just arrived that morning and had to have a play. I had discovered Sketches By Tamara earlier in the day (tea break from services are crafty time too) which are just my style so I used sketch 24 just about as is. the papers are Chatterbox which I used to love for pattern but hate for quality of paper. Now it is lovely card weight stuff. Delish!No time for crafting today but hope to fit some in tomorrow while Phil goes to Heathrow to pick up his mum after her month in Canada

Hi Lythan,
I think you have a bit of competition there, with Carys.
That card is really beautiful.

Love the LO, you have been a busy bee!
