new stuff

First off, I can hopefully start to get back into my blog habit - I was caught up in preparing and organising for the Galway mini extravaganza last weekend and I had a great time. Thanks to Kerry and Nora for organising it - plus everyone who came, taught, bought and demo'ed I enjoyed every minute.
Lots of happy crafters got to see and buy the Plush Pals dvd, although if you missed the weekend then a few copies went back to an siopa bui, Spiddal with Kerry and Kim. I never stoppped the whole weekend and by the time I got to go shopping, the new Tim Holtz dies had sold out - so I'm first reserve when the new stock arrives! I adore the off the page bracket and the tattered flowers, plus I have to get a couple of the embossing folders and there is a perfectly divine hanging sign that has my name all over it.
I had a few of the brackets from white cardstock to demo them and I carefully packed them up and brought them home to play with - after a few months of cutesy cute, I need a break and so I've decided it's all about the ink this week. I got out my distress ink pads and had a play - this week's paperplay challenge is no patterned paper, so it fits in nicely. Stamps are from Darkroom Door and flowers are Tim Holtz tattered flowers by Sizzix and the bracket is also Sizzix.
This week raise the bar wants your fave colour and I'm going through a red phase, while papertake wants you to try something new, which all distress and stamps is a new direction for me.

Ooh, lovely cards, Sarah. Love the rich colours in both, and that big flower in the first and the lovely brayered (is it brayered?) background in the second.

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay again this week.

Julie :o)

Your red phase is just wonderful! I love the flower as a focal point, and the rich hue you chose is just wonderful. Thank you for joining us at Raise The Bar this week with your favorite color!
