This is the final for now in my Stampin Up Field flowers series, and leads nicely into my next series which is My Minds Eye Howdy Doody paper collection – my favourite so far of the recent new releases. I stamped the flower images with Prima chalk inks, and also used Stampin up cardstock – Blushing bride, a martha stewart punch and some velvet ribbon. It was quiet today at the market, and uncomfortably hot.. Joe and I took it in turns standing outside the shed where there was a bit of a breeze and it was a little cooler than inside! Til tomorrow…

Here is todays card, still continuing with my new Stampin Up Field flowers stamp set. I did get the idea for this card from a magazine – I thought I have all the papers they used – I can do that, then as I started it totally changed… which is why I very rarely copy ideas!The papers used are Authentique Uncommon, and I stamped my image directly onto the patterned paper with basic black ink. The cardstock is Stampin Up sahara sand and very Vanilla, and I added lace and white liquid pearls – the best invention… Another very hot day here – 37C again ( thats over 100 F for my overseas visitors) and impossible to craft in this heat. The air conditioner has been making horrible noises and we prayed it would make it through the night, which it did, only just, and this morning saw my husband up on the roof changing a fan belt – crisis averted, it’s going like a little beauty now thankfully. I am off to the Market tomorrow, will be hot, but I am looking forward to seeing my regular customers there. Til tomorrow….

Here is card number 2 using my new stampin up stamp set – Field flowers. The inks used were stampin up tangerine tango, more mustard, and old olive, and the cardstock was also stampin up daffodil yellow, tangerine tango and old olive. I just added 3 brads and some ribbon. Its been another very hot day here in Adelaide, and I have been out celebrating Dads 80th birthday with Mum, dad and my 2 sisters. Have eaten far too much and now have to face the kitchen to feed the blokes here who didn’t come out with us!May or may not visit the craft room tonight – it depends whether it cools down a bit…. Til tomorrow….

Very quick post tonight as its tea time, and, people are wondering here it is! Til tomorrow…..
