Fab Friday Challenge

Hi folks. Well did anyone tune into Craftday? Anyone buy any treats? There was loads of things I wanted, why is it with crafters, even though my attic is creaking under the weight of my "stuff" there's still another range of papers, or crafty tool I need! I know I'm not alone in this, but there was tonnes of stuff I wanted. Love everything Heidi Grace had, oh and really loved all of Anna Griffin's stuff, and of course the TSV brought to us by Nancy Hill was lovely. I love craftday, loads of nice stuff, and lovely people to chat to as well. Really good fun. I felt so sorry for Nancy, Anna and their team - they were still packing when we were leaving which was at lease 12.30!! What a long day they had, especially after all that travelling. I'll never winge again and the two bags I go into QVC with, or the drive.

Anyhow, it's Friday so you know what that means (me running late again, supposed to be washing my hair at this minute in time). This weeks challenge,
A touch of White
Inspired by my white Staz-on pad which I've had ages and never used. I had a play stamping on both sides of acetate, so you get a mirror image. I really enjoyed this, and the results were quite quick and easy. Had trouble taking pictures of the cards however, so attempted to scan them. Not sure how they will look when they are loaded, so I apologise now if they are abit rubbish.

Very easy to do. Cut down your acetate, choose a lovely stamp (I'm still into my swirls), and stamp using the white staz-on. Allow the first image to dry, turn over and stamp the image again. Viola!! Mirror image. I used rub-ons, and card sentiments to complete my ATCs.

Have fun folks, looking forward to seeing your fantastic creations as ever.

Hi Leonie
Love the effect of stamping on acetate with White Staz-0n - will definitely give it a go.
I had a major blow out on Craft Day - got lots of Heidi Grace and the Cosmo Cricket stuff on Rosemary's show...will have to speak to the Bank Manager nicely for at least the next year.

Hi Leonie,
Thanks for another exciting challenge. Just love every ATC you do and appreciate the quality against the time scale. I've had a go again, but more importantly, I had fun again. See my effort at
