Winner announcement and Tomorrows show!!

Evening lovely crafters, I hope you have had a lovely day.  It's been a little chilly hasn't it, but the sun was shining here in Peterborough, so it was a very pleasant day to get a bit of crafting done.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow, I'm packed and ready - I just said that didn't I.  Me.  Ready.  That obviously means I've not packed something vital.  I'll have a double check before I set off in the morning.

Now, yesterday we had a double give-away, thank you everyone for entering.  The lucky winners are:

dmouse19  and
 Saintly Lisa 

If you ladies would kindly email me with your address, and I can get those sent out for you.  My email address is leoniepujol@hotmail.co.uk.  There will be more of the finished projects up for grabs, I'm intending to do a fund raiser actaully, A lady did suggest I auction a few pieces to raise money for Sands, which is such a good idea, and seeing as it would have been Jacobs 9th birthday on Thursday this would be perfect timing as well.  So, that's what I intend to do - I hope you will be able to join me :)

I wanted to detail the projects I have been doing for TV, but I have been really rubbish at taking photo's!  I just kept forgetting.  I have managed to do one, almost in full!

It starts with a lovely stamp from Stampendous, some beautiful brush markers, a piece of watercolour card and a piece of cut and dry (these will be available on my show tomorrow on Hochanda)

Take your pen and add blocks of colour to your piece of cut and dry.  Then wet your card with water.  Take the cut and dry and simply run it over your card - you will get an instant blend of colour!




I dried the card with my heat tool, and then used one of the large Stampendous stamps, with black embossing powder.


I love the blend of colour - the pens, which are a lovely brush marker from Sakura, are very easy to use, and the fine brush nib is excellent quality


I matted and layered the card, and added a little glitter. 



Hopefully I'll see you on the TV tomorrow :)
