Happy Birthday Lisa!!

Hello blog visitors, thanks for stopping by.  It's been a beautiful day here in Kent, we've had high temperatures & lots of gorgeous sunshine.

Today is indeed Lisa's birthday & I hope she is having a lovely day.  Unfortunately, she is not feeling very well.  Those of you who attended her class at the beginning of the month will remember she had a virus & was losing her voice rapidly.  She is still under the weather, so I am sure you will join me in sending her get well soon wishes.   Despite being unwell, she has been adding new items to the website & working on a newsletter, so keep an eye on your inboxes. 

Among the new items are sets of six SPECTRUM NOIR pens.  These are acid-free, alcohol ink pens.  They are double-ended & come in an assortment of colours & shades. Each pen in a set of six coordinates perfectly with each other & there is also a set of neutrals, perfect for skintones.  If you like to colour with pens, but don't like the lines & streaks you get with 'ordinary' markers, then try Spectrum Noirs.  They blend extremely well & at only £6.99 a pack, they're a very affordable way of taking your colouring skills to the next level.

If you are a complete beginner to using SNs, then Lisa also has Leann Chivers DVD tutorial.  It's packed full of hints & tips, step by step colouring projects, in fact EVERYTHING you need to achieve perfect colouring.

The images on the cards I'm showcasing today are Imaginations Decoupage Stamp Sets & Lisa has used various techniques, including colouring with Spectrum Noirs & paper piecing.

Before I go, I'm happy to say that the winner of the blog candy, has received her goodies & hopefully, she is having fun playing with them.  Brenda, if you would like to show us what you created, email me some pics & I will post them here.

Lisa's next classes will be June 1st in Maidstone, which will be a nice start to the Jubilee weekend.  I shall find out if there are any spaces available & let you know.

I hope to be back soon, so until then,

Happy Crafting!
