All in a good days work

I know I often say I love my job but it's true, I really do.  Today was one of those days that just made me smile.  I was at Cardcraft Plus at Preston doing a demonstration and met some lovely customers - thank you for coming by my demonstration table to say hi and a very happy 50th birthday to Sharon.

It meant I got to play with my SWALK stamps all day and made a couple of cards. This one was inspired by challenges at:
Allsorts challenges - dressing up
Meljens Designs - clean and simple
I love the way that from the SWALK CD I can print all my papers in the same colour tone and they just work together so well.  I've stamped the image again onto patterned paper to make her dress and layer up her hat.

This one was inspired by challenges at:
CPS - sketch # 178

I didn't get home until 7pm but luckily Steve had got some food in for dinner and cooked me a fabulous steak sandwich with onions and mushrooms.  Fully refueled I had a little bit of me time, which obviously means crafting.  Just two little cards tonight.  The first on being inspired by challenges at:
Saturday Challenge - hot wheels
Tuesday Taggers - Lots of lovely Black - well quite a bit - it started out as a black card!
The ABC Challenge - A is for August - August means holidays to me and especially in Europe that always reminds me of the kids zipping around on scooters.
The papers are gorgeous Echo Park and the super scooter stamp is from Imaginisce.

This second one was inspired by challenges at:
Totally Gorjuss - Baby, baby
Charisma Cardz - Teddy Bears

I hope your day has had some fun in it.
