The answer my friend is blowing in the wind

Morning all and hope the week is going quickly for those who want it to be quick (me!) Another little super clean and simple Christmas card, I am in full batch making mode, slightly manic truth be told hee hee but I am on a mission. A big shot out and yoohoo to the exquisitely talented Judy, who has given me an award - thank you so much Judy, it's a real pleasure to be part of a great gang of talented buds :D

So many ideas buzzing around my head at the moment, also a few ladies asked about the 'poppin pastels' technique I did yesterday. Basically you stamp your image in versamark ink and then apply chalks to it. I used co-ordinating Stampin' Up! ones with a sponge dauber to each particular area of the image, then finish with a quick poof of the lips or use a soft brush to clear the excess chalk and you're done. Remember if you need any supplies from the current Stampin' Up! catalogue give me a shout here, also there is free delivery on orders over £45 and if you choose your items from the flyer (top left) you will get a free tag punch worth £12.50.

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx
