A little sneaky peek

Good morning, peeps!  Have you all grown webbed feet yet?  Isn't it getting boring?  Maybe when we've all given up hope of having a lovely sunny day, the sun will put his hat on and come out to play, just to surprise us.

Anyhoo, enough of this gloom about the weather, our Sheena is on the telly again tomorrow with her new stamps and other goodies, so make sure you're watching at these times:

8.00 a.m. on Create and Craft
12.00 p.m. on Ideal World

Apparently, Ideal World are having a double discount day so it could be a good time to buy, that's if they haven't all sold out on the earlier show, of course!

You're probably wondering by now how long I'm going to keep typing before I show you the pics.  Well, I have to warn you that my camera died last week :-( and the pics were taken with my phone in the absence of a camera yet to be bought (ouch!!) so what you're seeing is not truly representative of the cards as they appear IRL but it's better than nothing!

This card was made with the Highland Silhouette set using Distress Inks and a white Prisma pencil.  The Celtic corners are part of the same set and are embossed with WOW embossing powder.

This one uses the Silhouette Grasses stamps and Pan Pastels - I love the vibrant colours but the butterflies look dreadful - the phone definitely didn't cope well with the bit of bling I put on their wings!

.... and here's a final one for today that uses a mix of the two stamp plates and one of the Luminarte backgrounds I created.  There were quite a few of those but my phone camera really wasn't up to the job of capturing the effect so do tune in tomorrow and maybe you'll get a better view of them or maybe they'll make the gallery on Sheena's website.

Hopefully, I'll see you soon with some better piccies.  Thanks for looking at the not so good ones today.



  1. WOW Diane they are all truly stunning despite what you consider to be poor piccies. I especially love the top one although the 2 red ones are so vibrant, x

  2. We've had sunshine today, Diane. I'll send it your way, although it's raining now so maybe not!!! They are promising something like Summer next week, something to do with the jet stream moving at last. Do you think we should get excited yet!!!
    Your samples are just stunning. I absolutely love the first one with the stag, it's so atmospheric and I love how you've used the castle. That stamp had me stumped, I just couldn't work out where to include it but you've made it look perfect.
    The grasses are yummy too.
    Hope all is good with you, despite the demise of your camera!
    Hugs Lisax
