Bag-A-Lope and card set

Good Evening All

Luckily for me, you dont need a voice in blog land, mine's gone.......again.  Not sure I like this loosing my voice every time I get ill, some people would say it's peacefull.

I had a workshop last night where I met some lovely crafting ladies.  We made a card and a bag-a-lope.  If you're wondering what this is, it's where you turn an envelope into a bag.  Most usefull when you need something in a hurry.  Needless to say the ladies were very dissapointed when they realised that I had a healthy snack (some dried mango) in my bag instead of some tasty treats.

We used the gorgeous Natures Nest Stamp set.  This is a very versatile set and we really did enjoy playing with it, everyone choosing the stamp they wanted as the "main attraction".  We also used blender pens to draw out some of the ink from the image, just a little to give a subtle effect and painted a little champagne shimmer paint around the distressed edges of the crumb cake cardstock.

Stamp set used: Natures Nest
Wheel Used: Sandy Speckles
Punch Used: Boho Blossoms Extra-Large
Accessories: Distressing tool from cutter kit,
Shimmer paint, brads and blender pens



  1. Oooooh, you lost your voice after a night of nattering to your ladies. Am I seeing something that everyone else is missing here?! ;)
    This is a very elegant set again, love the neutral colour combo. I'm not sure I have the patience for a bag-a-lope...
    Thanks also for your kind comments at the weekend. I really appreciated them.
