Hi Gang. Hope you had a good weekend? And I hope that those who were able to pop along to our demo day on Saturday with Andy Skinner are feeling suitably inspired? I know I am.. It was such a great day, I can't wait to get playing! After putting the workshop back in some sort of order it was time to get on with some crafting of my own on Sunday. A friend had asked me to make his Wife an Anniversary card... I'm terrible when it comes to requests! I don't mind churning out samples for the shop and the blog for you all to see, some you may like some you may not! And that's fine.. But when it comes to actual requests, my mind goes a blank and I am more worried that the recipient won't like it. I guess I could keep it all very simple and just snap it all together with very little thought, effort or crafting skill. But that is just not my style... You know I like to get the most out of a piece of crafting equipment, and help you to do the same in the process! So, here we are with what I came up with..Creatables Bicycle Die (LR0233) twice in Black, Silver and Copper coloured Mirror card. This particular Die looks great as a one dimensional image, but I thought it might be worth trying to make it at least a two dimensional!Fancy Framed Tags One (S4-377).

It was unpacked, checked off and priced up, and then we had to do the usual impossipuzzle to fit it onto our already bulging shelves.. But fit it on we did!earlier this week, I was lucky enough to have a little play with the goodies before they actually came in..Xmas Joy to All from the Ho Ho Ho Collection from Couture Creations) fills those needs. Not only does it have a nice embossed image, but the sentiment is also part of the folder. Double whammie!! So, once embossed,

Hi guys. Here we go with one of the projects we have been doing in our Monochromatic lesson this week.. I suspect that most of us would consider Black & White to be monochromatic? But to give it it's full description it is in fact tint, tone or shade of one colour.. I know!, we like to educate where we can here at Pinnacles... That said, apart from the oodles of samples I prepared for the lesson in various monochromatic tones, we have indeed been playing around with Black and White, with a hint of Red thrown in for those who just couldn't resist playing outside of the box.. You know who you are.. I mention no names!!..... CHRIS!!!!!!!! ;o)Labels Twenty Eight (S5-127) in black card.Fancy Framed Tags One (S4-377) in Black cardMarianne Creatables Flowers 1 and 3
