Hi! My apologies for my prolonged absence from the blog. If you follow the Stamping With Val Facebook Page, you might know why, but if not I doubt you’ll be surprised. As expected DD2 did indeed come down with Chicken Pox, having caught it from DD1. Of course, getting at the same time over the holidays would have been the best result, but sadly that wasn’t to be. So after just 3 days back at school, DD2 has been off all this week. I did arrange for her school work to be sent home though (I’m such a mean mummy!) so she wouldn’t fall behind. It has meant though that I have fallen rather behind instead!
The weather here has been fairly miserable too, so today has been the best day for taking photographs – yay! I also got a couple of cards made yesterday so I’ll be sharing properly again with you soon!
Today though, I’m sharing a card that we made at my Laughs & Papercrafts class last week using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Tasty Trucks:
We also used the new Stampin’ Up! Watercolour Pencils to colour our truck in. Lots of my class attendees seemed to like the pencils, feeling that they gave them lots of depth of colour, depending on how hard they pressed. Plus more control over the colour above watercolouring with Aquapainters and ink. We did use Aquapainters just to smooth out the colouring lines though.
Tasty Trucks is a super cute stamp set you can earn for FREE when you spend £45 on Stampin’ Up! product through to the end of March! You can read all the details on Sale-A Bration HERE!
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to be back again really soon with some more great projects for you,
