Coffee Pot again!

Hello Lovelies! How are you today? Thanks for your kind words on my box yesterday and also my fabby weekend - not going to forget that one in a long time - I need to start to think about my own 50th - its not for a couple of years but I'm sure it will come around fast! I have vague ideas - I think it may involve crafting in the day and partying at night!

Today I want to share with you the makes I led at coffeepot yesterday - we used brushos to make the background and distress markers and crayons to complete the flowers. I love these makes - especially the orange one - and they're so quick and easy.

All paperartsy stamps on this one ..

More paperartsy stamps - a recent release by Kay Carley.

On these two the flowers are paperartsy and the text Tim Holtz.

I have details of the how in a very similar post coming up on Thursday!

Until then I would like to enter these into 

djkardkreationnbus-challenge-6 - this is the first airing of my distress crayons!!

Big Hugs and hope to see you Thursday!

  1. Glorious shares today Rachel, very much up my street.

    Missed yesterday's post but just checked out those party photos, what fun it looked, but the big question, did Johnny make an appearance (can you tell I'm a tad obsessed with him).

    1. No Johnny Depp sadly Brenda - but its probably a good job - it was ladies only!!!! Although in his case maybe we would have made an exception!
