Balloons galore - sneak peak

Hello and welcome,

What a beautiful sunny morning here after the drab and dreary day yesterday!
Today, whilst playing along with another fantastic colour challenge over at Global Design Project, I am also sharing a sneak peak from the upcoming Spring Summer catalogue.
I have to admit that although this colour combination works really well it is not one that I would have thought of using myself - which is why it's a challenge I guess ;-)

After attending Onstage Local in Telford I was lucky enough to come home with some new stamps, which meant I could put my Balloon Punch (which has been sat on my shelf - unused I am ashamed to say, for far too long!) to good use. So for my entry I have gone to town with the balloons, and snuck in a cool new embossing folder - you'll have to look a bit more closely to find it hidden amongst the balloons!

Have a lovely day.
See you soon

Onstage Telford 2016 Swap

Hello and welcome,

Well, it turns out soon wasn't that soon after all! Starting a new job and getting into the flow of how that all works took a little longer than anticipated, but, now I know what I'm doing (pretty much) and can relax a little, perhaps I might manage to update my blog a little more frequently - that's the plan at least.

So, at the weekend I joined hundreds of other SU demonstrators at Onstage in Telford. I haven't been to an event for a couple of years, so it was really nice to catch up with some very lovely people. As usual part of the fun is exchanging ideas in the form of swaps, and for mine I used the baby wipe technique of dropping colour from re-inkers randomly over a baby wipe, thus creating a random 'ink pad' which can then be used to stamp loads (and I mean loads :-)) of whatever image you choose.

I chose the set Timeless Textures set to create my background. The sentiment is from Endless Thanks, as is the little leaf image behind the flower, and I topped the background off with a pansy from the Flower Shop set.
The colours I used to create my background are Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizazz and Marina Mist. As I ran out of time to enter my details on my swaps if you did swap with me thank you very much indeed. 

See you again soon.
Take care
