Sunny Friday!

Wow! It's Friday again!  And it's a beautiful day here - blue skies and everything to smile about!
Even more so because, despite being really busy, I have found time to do some crafty shopping! Lots of parcels to open and goodies to ogle! Lots of lovely new fabric too!

13 Basic Grey FQs from Moda

10 Bali Batik FQs

Look at the elephant die - I had to have this set!

One extra special parcel arrived today though.. first time I have shopped with Simon Says Stamp and I have to say I'm really impressed with how quickly the parcel arrived from the States.  And even more happy to see the contents!  I have been trying to get one of these stamp sets from MFT for AGES!!!! It's Magical Dragons!  It seems to be sold out everywhere (no wonder!)

Can't wait to have a play!   I think I will try my new Albrecht Durer watercolour pencils!

Also in the package some gorgeous stamps from Concorde & 9th, and the SSS Monthly Kit!  Suffice to say I was nearly dancing round the room when the postman arrived!

Looking forward to a crafty weekend!

Having a play with Paperartsy Infusions


Welcome to the weekend!  It's been a good week this week.  Lots achieved (not crafty stuff).  Time for some crafty stuff tomorrow hopefully. 
Although I did manage a quick make today playing with Paperartsy Infusions, some gel medium and one of my new Kim Dellow stamps.

I just love the effects you can get with the infusions.. so much fun to play with!

Some infusions...


Gorgeous stamps!

Get out the acrylics and have a play!

Hello! Well, it's definitely all been about having a play today! Re-discovered the acrylic paints (Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics by Paperartsy) and got a few extra tools out.. a hot glue gun, heat gun, baby wipes and an old credit card!

And here are the results!

The baby wipe flower..

Then a card using my new Kim Dellow stamps!

Used the faux printing technique with an old credit card.

I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
