Lovin' Ink & Fab Friends

I'm sorry I've not been around much lately but yet again I've not been in the best of health. I really should have wrote this post last week but as that ole saying goes "Better late than never". So here we go!!

Last Friday (4th) I spent the day with two wonderful friends Margaret and Janet her daughter. Both ladies have been crafting some time now but just recently ventured into the wonderful world of Promarkers. Janet loves all things Tim Holtz and the things she makes are beyond beautiful. So when we arrange for me to go and show Margaret and Janet, I must admit I was rather nervous, I've never shown anyone how I colour with my Promarkers, well apart from my mum that is. I showed how I coloured skin and hair and told them my funny little ways and different colour combos. I felt like I'd hardly showed them much but they assured me that I had told them loads of helpful tips and were that pleased we are going to have another little lesson but this time colouring clothes. I am soooo pleased they found what I showed them helpful. I had a wonderful time and really looking forward to our next meet up.

As most of you will know I am a total Tilda addict but I do love things that Janet makes, I always say to her "I wish I could do stuff like that" and I always get told "You could!" So imagine how thrilled I was when Janet passed me a black envelope, here's what was inside!

Isn't it wonderful and the pocket with the Special Friend ticket stamp inside, was just so lovely. I must admit the bow when Janet gave me it was tied better than what I've done it, I'm useless tying bows. Please pop over to Janets blog and have a look at the wonderful things she creates, you can find her blog here. Not only did I get this beautiful card but I also got a bag of goodies to use on my cards, will show you all a photo a little later in the post but first I'll tell you why Janet gave me these goodies. Janet and her totally utterly talented friend Michelle aka Midnight Crafter have recently started their own little online business selling lush ribbons, lace, buttons, buckles and charms, they also do their Lovin Ink workshop at The Stampman in Skipton. So Janet and Michelle gave me a selection of their goodies for me to use on my cards. Hand on heart and I promise I am not just saying this cos these are my friends but this stuff is the best I've come across in a long while and so reasonably priced too I can't believe they actually expect me to use these lol, so I better show you my goodies.
Look at that lace and those buttons! I actually have managed to bring myself to use some of these but I can't share the photos just yet. Please check out Lovin Ink  for yourselves, go on treat yourself you know you want to. I highly recommend the goodies.
Take care everyone xx
