wake your dreams / open day on sunday

sorry i havnt blogged much recently

here is a card i was just playing around with
the design is taken from a sizzix idea for the fathers day card

i got hold of the sizzix die for cutting a revolving pop-up for the inside of a card so i made this using tims vintage alarm clock and some new andy skinner stamps

  i sprayed the inside with a little krylon webbing spray [again i saw this used on someones blog but i forget who] and some diluted coffee sprayed .  i am liking the use of coffee to distress with, as in the frantage techniques.

you can see the dimension of the pop-up message.
not my usual thing but its different and fun!


i want to remind everyone that this sunday the 24th june i will be taking my crafty stash to the sussex beacon garden gadabout where i will be making cards and showing people who are interested how to make their own card for a donation to the sussex beacon.

i want to thank the lovely people at craft obsession, and also country view craft for generously donating stash and lovely goodies for this event.

  i will be leaving a supply of card making materials for the patients to make use of after i have been there for the day.

if you are in brighton at the weekend i would love to see you!!
thanks to everyone who has contributed to supporting this fantasic hospice.  on a personal note i can honestly say i would very likely not be here if it were not for the wonderful work they do at the sussex beacon.
