Inky fingers and blue lips

Well I had a lovely messy time making my samples for yesterdays demo. There's nothing more satisfying that getting covered in ink and paint. I do now have stained finger nails that look like I have half the garden stuck under them. Very attractive indeed, I think I'm going to have to put some nail varnish on to hide it!

Don't you just hate it when your misters block up, I did the usual of soaking the top and tube in some hot water (which usually does the job very well) but no, it still wouldn't work. So I got this 'good' idea to take the tube off and blow through it. The only problem was I turned it round before I put it between my lips and yes you've guessed it, lovely shimmery blue ink on my lips, pmsl. It did look very odd, but it at least matched my fingers. Coordination is everything, don't you think?

Here are some of the samples I made for the demo, I really loved working with all the goodies. They are all from Creative Expressions, so check out your nearest stockist if you see anything you like.

And here is this weeks Polka Doodles DT card. We had to make a baby project and I think just about all of us used the new cd Sundae of seasons. Pop over to the PD blog and check out the lovely projects made by the rest of the team, they're all stunning. And another reminder about all the gorgeous new stuff that Nikky has got in for the Polka Doodles online shop, luscious East of India ribbons, labels and tapes, Doodly Dewdrops, Fru Fru ribbon packs ......... I could go on all night, just go and have a looksey here.

I forgot to say......

Honestly sometimes I think I'd be dangerous if I had brains. Mind you it would come in useful now and then, lol.

I forgot to tell you all that I will be demonstrating for Creative Expressions on Sat 23rd October at the Squires Garden Centre at Badshot Lea near Farnham.  I'll be making a lovely mess (opps I mean creating gorgeous things) with inks, paints, mica powders and embossing powders.  I'll also be using some beautiful stamps and Rangers Idea-ology products, yummy. 

So if your in the area come and say hi and get some inspiration.

Where have I been!!!

Good question that. Working, working and er mm working, not much else really. I did have a day off when my best friend from Cornwall came for a visit.  Much laughing and gossiping was done, and we put the world to rights.  I have been neglecting my poor blog I'm afraid to say, not on purpose, I've just found it difficult to find the time when my brain is working to write a new post. Please forgive me, I do get here in the end.

I've got some cards to show you all and some news of some lovely new ot some must have bits and bobs. Nikky over at Polka Doodles has got some luxurious new East of India products in.  You can choose from the most gorgeous ribbons, labels and string.  She also has some new Frou Frou ribbon packs and bling and  Doodle Dewdrops and Bugs.  You really can't miss them.

Dyan over at Art From the Heart has launched her new Dylusions rubber stamps to go with all the other products from the Dylusion range, something else deffo worth a look at.

This is the last Polka Doodle challenge card I did. It is now a few weeks old now but heyho better late than never.
And here are some cards made for Making Cards Magazine.
