As seen on TV

Good afternoon, peeps! I've been absent far too long again but at least this time it wasn't my own doing because I've been without Internet access for a while. I have to say that it felt dreadful, how we've all grown used to this cyber community!
Anyhoo, I thought I'd share with you some piccies of my cards that actually made an appearance of the Create and Craft TV channel last Sunday on Barbara Gray's Clarity Stamp Show. Martyn Parker, the show presenter didn't seem to show that many of the DT cards at all but the studio was full of amazing cards that the viewers had sent in for Barbara's birthday. I think the whole thing was quite overwhelming for Barbara.

This one was a fairly simple use of the Celtic Corners and the Flower Boxes. The DP is from Crafty Individuals and the leaves are a Marianne D die.

This was the one Martyn liked best. I created the sea with a brayer and a Kaleidacolor 'Caribbean Sea' pad then used a Versamark pen and white embossing powder to create the 'white horses'. The buttons were from my stash and tied on with hemp string to maintain the nautical look.
This was another card made with the Harbour Kit + the 'Oats' stamp from the Beatrice Kit. Much use of the brayer again!

The Harbour Kit again but using the houses and the small boat this time. It's hard to see the fish by the seagull's feet but it's embossed with silver.

Well I hope you enjoyed seeing them in close up although I'm sorry for the crooked photos - all taken in too much of a hurry I'm afraid. I'll return soon to show you some that didn't make their TV debut. I'm off to the Harrogate Show tomorrow - heling Barbara with her workshop first thing then getting in some retail therapy! I'll be returning to the show on Sunday as well but with friend and family this timeto help them with their retail therapy.
