Oh what a wonderful week it's been. I've been very productive and I definitely think the glorious sunshine has helped. I spent yesterday making samples for the new product lauch of Ranger's Simon Hurley. I've been following his journey and he's only 16! He has a good range for the masculine cards that a lot of us struggle with so it'll be worth taking a look at his latest collections on Create & Craft tomorrow.
Over on the Daring Cardmakers, I have set the challenge this week. It just so happens that it's Queen Victoria's birthday today so to celebrate I'd like to see something from her era on your cards be it a mode of transport, clothing, steampunk or you can pay homage to the Queen herself and do something regal!
I have chosen to use the penny farthing on my card with a frog riding it! Did you know the penny farthing was the first machine to be called a bicyle? I've used a stamp set from Bert & Gert to create my card together with distress inks and a die cut tag. The main image in black is embossed in black giving a beautiful sleek shiny look.
You can see lots more wonderful insporation from my fellow team mates HERE and I hope you'll join in.
I'm at The Range in St Albans this Sunday from 11am demonstrating for Trimcraft once again. I also need to plant my summer bedding at some point!
I hope you have a wonderful long weekend whatever you do,
