I've been having a play with my new Twinkling H2O's and as promised here are a few examples. The butterfly really lends itself I think to these lovely shimmery colours. It doesn't show up so much on the computer but its really shimmery in real life.
The Trees one is a lot more subtle, which is what I wanted for this wintery scene.
I need to play a bit more with them.
I found the best way to use them was with an aqua brush, the butterfly was inked onto the stamped image, the tree one was actually put onto the rubber!

I will be starting the ball rolling with A over the weekend, once DH has been able to scan my card for me.
Hope all you SU addicts will join in! You'll find it here - http://sualphachallenge.blogspot.com/
So I'll carry on playing then...... LOL!

Its been good to be crafting again and back in the land of blog. I'm going to enter this Thank You card into Michelle's blog candy comp. I hope her mum likes it! LOL! http://cardgrotto.blogspot.com/2008/01/blog-candy.html
DH went back to work this week after the Christmas and was able to scan some cards for me that I've managed to do this week. Here is an example of a simple card using one of the new sets from Stampin Up - this is a hostess set and I can see myself using this set a lot. I've cut out a few of the poppies and decoupaged them.
This simple card was inspired by my good friend minimilk on Aunty's forum http://www.auntysforum.com/ from a lovely card she sent me. Thanks for the inspiration Sian!
I notice Samm is running some blog candy on her site for a birthday card so I'm going to enter this. Its good to be entering the challenges again. http://samm-l.blogspot.com/
The girls at Arty Girlz have set the challenge of RED for this week - so I can enter this.

I will be doing a few Valentines, but not many. One of the things I was surprised about in the States was how they send Valentine Cards to everyone, not just partners. My children were quite upset the year they didn't get one from me - although I haven't carried it on since we've been back home.
I may then go on and do a few Easter cards although I don't send them out like I do Christmas cards - they normally just go to my mum and mum-in-law! LOL.

I made 13 cards with my new Stampin Up stamps from the new catalogue. I have a workshop in January and need to do a lot of samples etc to take along with me so this should give me a head start.
However, still not got the computer, printer etc yet so I can't scan them on here.
Oh yes, and last night we had a flood - only a matter of time until the locusts find us.........

I am still without any computer equipment so I can't resume my blogs yet, it is so frustrating.
We have the decorators coming in on Monday 7th Jan and they will probably be here about 6 weeks in total! Does that mean I have to stay at home for 6 weeks???? I'll have to set myself up a table to do some crafting if I'm going to be spending that much time at home.
