Afternoon crafters one and all.
Having had a very busy and tiring weekend, I have been taking it easy today and after just a few chores, did a little crafting. This card uses Hobby Art's Purple Toadflax stamp and one of their greetings too.  There's a little bit of Cuttlebug stencilling and some Nestabilities going on.  Finished off with flowers and card candy.  The background darker card is made using a brayer and a Big & Juicy pad - Hydrangea and my hands are the identical colour!  What a mess I was in at the finish.
I was also making some cards using the resist technique, that Kim was demonstrating at Lavender Lane last Saturday but the glossy card that I used with the brayer, wouldn't dry quick enough, so they will be tomorrow's cards. (After several pieces were thrown away I might add.)
As I mentioned, I popped in to see Kim and the girls, Jane & June at Lavender Lane on Saturday. They were busy with demos and 'make and take'.  I did some resist work with the brayer and the Big & Juicy pads and also some shrink plastic butterflies.
Mike and I were entertaining friends yesterday and we had a lovely time but by the time we'd cleared up etc, we were nicely worn out.
