Long distance crafting

It's another marvellous Monday and time for my weekly inspiration for Visible Image. Did  you catch the live shows on Friday and Saturday?  I was rather a long way away to watch on TV so I watched on my tablet from here.....

yup....I'm on holiday.

Soaking up the sun,

Eating yummy food, with a glass of Mythos of course..

and a little bit of sightseeing too ......


OK back to my DT project for today.

 I used the brilliant strobes stencil, perfect for sending some sunshine to you all 😃

Today's card is another of the samples I made for the shows. You can still watch both shows on the Create and Craft web site for another 5 days if you did miss it. Mark and Pauline did some amazing demos too.

I also used the new  Father definition stamp
Here is my sunny card
I used Distress oxides through the strobes stencil and then added the Father sentiment plus some accent stamps from the Own it! and Create it stamp sets. We also have a "distressed" challenge running during September over on our Facebook come and join could win £40 voucher to spend on your choice of Visible Image stamps.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

  5. Fabulous card Jane! Love the autumn day sky that you have created with the brilliant blue background, the rays of light and the wispy trail of leaves blowing off the tree and caught up in the crisp air! Love it!

    Wow on your vacation spot, what a gorgeous place to spend some time! Summer is officially over where I am, and I have started packing up me new patio to prepare for the cold weather. It looks so blah out there without all the flowers and bright chair cushions. I'm attacking that space with Christmas lights the very moment they pop up in the stores!! lol. Sending hugs to you Jane and hoping all is well with you and yours :)
