Outer Space

Evening peeps

I had a phone call yesterday from a friend of mine, her partner is a Manager in the company I had an interview with.  There is not currently a vacancy for me, but after an area meeting last week, they have decided to make a position because they don't want to risk losing me, I can't believe they would do that, I'm just waiting now for confirmation.


Anyway, I made a quick space themed card today.  The digital stamp is called Space Planet And Stars from Lilyboo Designs and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White watercolour card
Leonie Pujol glitter pens
Die'sire Happy Birthday die
Xcuts Stars die set

Sweet Summer Wishes

Afternoon peeps

I have been out car hunting this morning and it's not been as easy as I had hoped.  Must of the car dealerships around the area are way out of my budget and I'm not keen on buying privately.  I went into one dealership and as soon as I walked through the gates I was jump on by a dirty looking salesman who then continued to follow me around, I won't be going back there again.  I have a couple of weeks before I need one, so hopefully something will turn up.


Anyway, I have made a sweet feminine card this afternoon.  The digital stamp is called Sakura Cherry Blossom from Star Stampz and it has been coloured using Copics and ProMarkers.


Other materials used are:

White card stock
Digital patterned paper
