Kindred spirit

Hello and happy Mondays :D everyone. I had a lovely weekend, the craft fayre was sunny and busy but and more importantly I found a fellow stash sniffer - whoo hoo. You see it has been my life long search since I started this crafting malarkey to also find the crafty people of Swansea to share my passion for stroking and sniffing paper, ribbon and stamps etc. Also for them not too look at me like "ding, ding all aboard for loony central".

I knew that I could only find them if I went out into Swonzee land, and indeed on Saturday I did, so a big hello to Marie who came past my stall on Saturday and said those immortal words ooh you're a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, well it was like music to my ears lol! For one she had heard of rubber stamping and even more amazingly she had heard of Stampin' Up!

Well a little bit about my card today, phew after all that excitement :D Please note the colour combination as you will probably be seeing a lot of it from me for my Christmas projects. It is taken with teal and whisper white and they really do make an awesome combination.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow, I am still on cloud nine from my crafty encounter :D

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: Snow flurries and sparkly &; bright.
Ink: Taken with teal and versamark.
Card stock: Whisper white and taken with teal.
Misc: Heat & stick powder, dazzling diamonds and jewel brad from the pretties kit.
Tools used: Piercing template and tool, 3/4 circle punch and heat gun.
