I know - you thought I'd left the country!  I've taken a blog break but its a new year and I'm going to try to kick start my posting once again with a bit of SPARKLE. 

I'm not one for layers and embellishments on cards but I saw THIS post on the Wplus9 blog and really fancied trying a bit of watercolouring gems.  Not real watercolouring of course but using Distress Inks - there are loads of tutorials and videos using this technique around at the moment and Dawn at Wplus9 has a few on the blog.  AND I've also been drawn into the sequin craze too - something I would not have imagined just a few weeks ago - but they do look so pretty when you see them in bulk don't they.  I bought three little packets and the Sparkle & Shine stamp set and die at Make the Day Special

Found a use for those cute little Bonne Maman jars I've been hoarding too! :)


  1. Ann I am so glad you are back blogging! You are my inspiration fix! Your new cards are lovely and I like the added interest with the sequins. Thank you so much for my wooden robin. I can't remember if I emailed you or not. I did take a picture and put it on my blog the post before last so that everyone can admire it! A happy new crafty year to you! x

  2. I NEED these stamps and they are out of stock- aagh! Not familiar with them and been to the website and seen lots of others too!Love how you used them.
    Happy New Year

    1. Oh dear I am sorry to start you off on another brand Lynn ;) - I did see the set was out of stock but hopefully they'll be back soon!
