Long Time.....No Blog!

Well it's been quite some time since my last blog entry, but there has been quite a lot going on here at the house of Goold!

Our house has been undergoing some major redecoration, whichwe have been trying to get on with for years, but you know how it is....always something else cropping up!

My husband is very meticulous were DIY is concerned so, in the end, Joshua and I had to go and stay at my parents for a couple of week while the house was turned in to a complete bomb site. Needless to say, I couldn't transport all my crafty stuff with me so I have not done any card making for weeks!

But the last thing that I did before our departure was to make some DT cards for Stamp Addicts ready for their C&C TV show which went to air yesterday.

In all the upheaval I have not been able to watch the show, but here is one of the cards that I made using the lovely, and very traditional Ballet set.

For this card I took the larger image of the Ballet shoes from the set, and stamped with pink pearl pigment ink, before finally embossing with clear detail embossing powder. I was then able to colour the shoes and ribbons with a pink promarker.

The sentiment is also from the set and this was also stamped and embossed before die cutting with plain round nesties.

I think the papers add to the traditional theme as they remind me of cottages and old fashioned drawer liners. They have come from a freebie pack that I received in a magazine a while back, but I am sure that you can probably find something quite similar without too much trouble.

Well there we go....I have finally broken my blog silence!!

Hopefully I will soon be able to get back to my card making again and have some nice new things to show you.

Have a good weekend everyone.
