Made on Demo Day

Hi folks!!
Please excuse my lack of coming to visit all you lovely crafters and leaving comments on your blogs. I have been so busy with family commitments. My eldest is on a residential school trip to an outdoor adventure centre (cannot believe the amount of 'stuff' he had to take!) so I should be back on form this week as I only have the twins gorgeous hubby here.
Anyway, enough about me. Here are some snaps I took at The Craft Barn of one of the cards I made last Saturday. It was great to be in the shop. I just love talking to people that share my passion for craft. I was thrilled to meet the uber talented Debby. I think she survived the big bear hug I gave her (sorry Debby, Couldn't help it.... was soooo excited to meet you!) I also met Ruby of Ruby 2 Shoes, another exciting and vibrant crafter... just check out her blog! (edit: thank goodness for spell check, or you would have been checking out her bog!) As well as lots more lovely ladies and gentlemen including Marie (*waves*) I think she actually lives at the shop and just goes home to sleep....only joking ;o)
For this card I used Basic Grey papers and some pink and brown Co-ordinations card. I embossed the pink panel with my Cuttlebug. The flowers were punched inked, curled, glued and finished off with a self adhesive pearl. I nabbed the Butterfly sentiment from the bit box in The Craft Barn Studio. I didn't have my QK flourishes with me so I used my Cuttlebug corner and double heart dies. Just a snip here and there and a little repositioning. The curly heart made the cute swirls at the bottom of the flower. The stamped images were Whiff of Joy. These are available to buy at The Craft Barn. I have coloured them with Coloursoft pencils, Sansodor and paper stumps.
Don't forget that that this week Kadoodle have Blog Candy that's very easy to enter.
Hope the sun is shining where you are.
Ciao for now,
Sandra xx
