Two Ways!

...cor blimey and thrice indeedily! It is Tuesday already which means that it is my day for The Stamp Attic DT.  This week I have been playing with those gorgeous Jo Firth-Young stamps, I loves them lots I do!  To see what I have been up to, please CLICK HERE for the post over on the Stamp Attic blog.   Here's a sneaky peeking of what I did.



And... you will notice, they are cards!  Oh yes indeed! I have been polishing my halo muchly because I have now made some more Xmas cards!  I reckon at this rate I will have enough to send to at least 6 peeps this year rofl  I know, it is terrible isn't it?  All this Xmas stash, papers, stamps, sparkly bits and still I faff and fiddle and am always rushing, last minute like, to finish off 60 odd cards.  I blame that Tim Holtz you know... if he didn't get me so excited about tags, I would have tonnes of cards... ahem... yes, quite!  Actually, I had thought about putting tags onto cards but... because I do have a tendancy to overload tags they would be way to heavy and bulky to post.  Anyways... the simplicity of Jo's drawings mean the stamps are so easy to use... but they are in no way boring... there are so many different things you can do with just one stamp.. I have lots more ideas... they will be done once I have got my shows out of the way this week.  I am on tomorrow at 9am on Create & Craft with a Melt Pot show... and a possibility of another show at 6pm or 7pm, as soon as I find out I will pop it on the sidebar :O))    I am then on again on Friday at 8am and 6pm on Create & Craft with some Tim Holtz goodies!   And at 10am on Friday with another Melt Pot show!   With that, I shall away, I have demo's to prep and get organised!  Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Hi Hels. I didn't realise you were on this week. Lovely, but I had promised myself not to buy any craft goodies until after Christmas so that's gone out the window hasn't it?

Hiya Hels,

Morning Hels, lovely cards, for xmas cards i make 10 designs and then make loads the same, i have about 300 to make! It must be difficult because for us crafting is a hobby so therefore xmas cards part of that, but when craft is your job and you've been looking at xmas cards since june your sick of themand dont get time to make any. Emma

Morning Hels, I love these stamps, your cards are beautiful, lovely colours, I love your free-hand drawing around the focal point stamping, goes really well with the stamp.
I can't wait for your shows this week, really looking forward to them.
I can't get to do christmas cards, because I'm always looking at Blogs and what other peeps have been doing ha ha, then I get sidetracked to other sites, before I know where I am, the time has gone. I spend more time on my computer now, than when I worked at one, but the difference is - this is for pleasure ha ha.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
