I”m Back !!! Did you miss me ? Well I missed you !
Had a fab few days in the UK visiting family and attending my first ever craft show. As usual yours truly the drama queen had lot’s of adventures., see previous post, in where my little sister Karen had to write my blog ( between you and me I think she did a better job ) . In fact she was more like a secretary than a sister answering and sending e mails on my behalf. I even managed to get her whole family involved in making ribbon flowers even her husband what an evening that was. Thanks Kal
I was lucky to meet at the craft show in Aintree the lovely and very humorous Neet who I have come to know through the Just for Fun challenge blog, what a lady great fun and full of tips and pointers ( after she had had a root through my purchases ).
Thursday has come around once again and it’s time to share with you what Neet has in store for us this week at Just for Fun. Do you remember Tea Cards those tiny little cards 1 and a half inches by two and a half inches that could be found in our packets of tea many moons ago. Well that’s our theme this week. Also Just for Fun has a guest designer this week the lovely Florence who is not only a lovely lady but has been taking part in the challenges from week one and is very very talented indeed . Pop over and check out her and the other design team members inspirational work.
The first one is a Hero Arts feather stamp stamped with black ink onto a piece of shiny card with a lace border and little seed pearls ( donated or in other words stolen from my sister Karen )
These next two are Inkadinkado tiny weeny stamps stamped onto linen with black Stazon ink and then matted onto brown distressed card. All three really quick and easy as just couldn’t decided what to use I brought so much stuff back with me now I have too much choice and of course no where to put it !
Couldn’t manage anything better I’m afraid as both my arms have increased in length by six inches due to the weight of my stash laden suitcase , I do hope they return to their normal length soon it’s a bit hot here to go around with my hands in my pockets.
Another exciting thing happened while I was away I actually won something and not just any old something . The hugely talented Lynne from Adorn had a giveaway to celebrate her 300th post !! a beautiful altered box and I was the lucky winner . I’m so excited I love Lynne’s work it’s so vintagy and feminine and scrumptious and I look forward to receiving it.
Well think that’s enough for one day look forward to visiting you all and seeing what you have been up to while I have been away.
Good to have you back :)I've never heard of tea cards – learning something new every day. Anyway, love your creations.WishesLynne

Hi there, So glad you had a great time, shame about the arms but hey ho a crafter has to do what a crafter has to do and carry she must LOL Your little cards are gorgeous, like this phase you're going thru, really inventive:0) xxx
So happy to have you back in person! Lovely tea cards, too. I used to be an avid collector as a kid! Hugs, Valerie
I love this style of cards and your hands are magic, you are a charismatic crafter, I am a big fan of you! CONGRATULATION for your gift be lucky every time.
Did you follow Neet's advice and get the alcohol inks? You will have fun with those, guess over the coming weeks we are going to see all sorts of new things made with your new stash. No idea what to do about stretched arms, it happens everything until your knuckles are dragging on the floor LOLGreat to have you back and crafting and great set of tea cards, thank you for joining us again at Just for Fun XOXO Zoe

Hi Hun – Get saving up – not long before the next Port Sunny show and I am hoping we see you there (or at one soon) so we can do another "meet up". That will be serious shopping!!!Great little tea cards, and so different – and do I recognise the stamps on the last one? Thanks for joining us at JFF again this week – must have been difficult with those l o n g arms stamping so well. Hugs, Neet xx
Congratulations!Your tea cards are wonderful, I especially like the ones with the linen cloth… great inspiration, I might use the idea in the future ;o)
I always think a muff is a good look for those whose knuckles brush the ground… but it's probably a bit hot for that too! It's good to have you back with your lovely comments Marie and I love your little tea cards – especially the ones you've stamped on linen – great idea! Vx
Congrats on winning the blog giveaway.Your teacards look fabulous, love the texture.
Ooh, love these Marie; the stamping on linen looks so effective. Glad you had a good time at Aintree – I was gutted I couldn't go 😦 You could have brought a bit of sun with you though!! xx
