Black and White Strikes!

I love the effects you can create with black and white and occasionally a splash of colour. These are all cards showing that. I've embossed the images using versamark and white embossing powder and my SU heat gun. On some I've addes some ribbon for colour or compliment and on some I've used brads or mirror card.

Stamp sets used include Lovely as a Tree, Forest Friends, Fresh Cutes and one of my favourites Pocket Silhouettes. These cards are all eye catching, but ever so simple to achieve. If you don't know how just mail me for a class.
The sun is shining here today and it's very warm. It's the start of a really busy week. Well really it began on Friday night when we went to a summer ball at the Petwood Hotel, famous for its Dambuster connections. The evening was fabulous with dancing outside to the songs of The Kommitments, a great band, and rides on a ferris wheel. The food, company, pimms and champagne were all wonderful!!!!!!!!! Although my body wouldn't have agreed yesterday.
That was a long day, but fun day. We did a pub lunch at the Red Lion in Raithby by Spilsby and returned to take our children to their swimming gala. I'm delighted to say that Olivia and her friend Danielle won the synchronised pairs and she achieved personal best times in all her strokes. Charlie has suddenly got to grips with swimming too and was at the end of the pool before I could catch him in a photo in the 'through the hoop' race! Two very proud parents as you can imagine. Today we are back to taxi service for parties, more swimming and play rehearsals. The remainder of the week includes music concerts, more swimming, more rehearsals and actual productions and ooo I forgot school! I may just find a minute or two to craft some bits and pieces for a school fayre I'm having a stall towards the weekend. I will return to blogging at some point, maybe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hugs and back soon.
