Monday Madness

I've had a lovely day at Inpsirations by Cardcraft Plus, demonstrating the Beatrix potter Winter's Tale collection by Crafter's Companion.  It's so lovely it was a joy to demonstrate with and the tape pens were flying out - well at £2.99 for 22 metres of the stickiest tape runner we've ever found, they are fabulous value.

I also got to spend the day with some of my favourite people, Anne-Marie, Linda and Leaonie, as well as all the lovely customers.

So what do you do when you get home from a demo, eat the fabulous dinner that's waiting for you and then make a couple of cards.  This one was inspired by challenges at:
Stamptacular - layer it on, at least five layers
Meljens designs - operation write home, monochromatic

Supplies used:
Stamps - PTI sign language
Patterned paper - PTI bitty dot basics (spring rain)
Cardstock - PTI spring rain, white
Die - nestabilities, scalloped square

This card was inspired by challenges at:
Papercutz - 3 patterned papers
Card patterns - sketch 84

Supplies used:
Card - PTI kraft
Patterned papers - PTI bitty dot basics (dark chocolate), bitty box basics (aqua mist, raspberry fizz)
Topper - PTI colour couture volume 1

I'm looking forward to working at home for a few days and getting ready to go to Carole's Crafts at Spalding on Friday.
