Welcome WOYWW'ers!!!  If you don't know what I mean, then go to Julia's and join in the fun!

Been a bit busy with hospital appointments and no internet access/email for a while, but now hopefully technological problems have been solved!  Yahooo!!!!!!!!!

Anyway here's what I've been working on lately - I had some odd sized pieces of card and decided to make a square card this time - luckily I have a spare envelope for it!  Most of the cards I make for cancer charities/hospices are not square, so this makes a nice change for me. 

I'm also trying to get some ideas in my head for a special wedding card, I love this stamped image that Di sent to me so have 'blinged' it up a bit and used my trusty PM's on it.  I keep changing my mind as to the style of card for the special couple, but no doubt you will see it in different stages in future WOYWW!
Poor Dafydd, he was soooooooooooooooo tired after making the tutorial for the pink and girlie style book card (not sure of the proper name for it sorry!), that he went to bed and snoozed for hours....zzzzz....zzzzzz

Enjoy WOYWW!

Hi Karen! I hope Dafydd took his shoes off before clambering into your cosy looking bed :) Love the cards you're busy with .....bling is good and make sure you show the end result of the Wedding card! Happy WOYWW! Di xx

Hi Karen,

Thanks for visiting! It's really best to invest in a blending tool and foam to use Distress Inks, so as to avoid streaks and lines. It also allows you to vary pressure and therefore depth of colour! You can start off with squares of Cut 'n' Dry foam too. Here is a great video link to help:

Have fun - they are brilliant inks...!

Love that punch you have used on the white c/s! It makes a gorgeous edge. I wish Dafydd could drop by here sometime and help me fold things neatly. (And I wouldn't let him use any sharp tools.)
