Afternoon lovely crafters. I'm waving from a very excited Yorkshire as we prepare for the Tour De France tomorrow. Otley has gone totally mad, it's full of cyclists and people today and the shops are running out of food as no deliveries are being made and the roads are closing tonight until Sunday, good job we are well stocked! Apparently it takes over an hour to do a 5 mile journey along to Ilkley, not that we tried it, with all the cyclists trying out the route. We saw Chris Froome and the sky team whizzing by yesterday. The town looks totally amazing though and is full of yellow bikes, flowers and bunting and all the pubs have been re named in French. I'll be waving madly tomorrow so look out for us on the TV!!!!
Now onto crafty matters. Our Sheena is launching some Christmas stamps on C&C on Monday where she is doing the 2 hour Craft Clinic at 11am. There are 4 sets in total and they are just lovely.
This is one of the samples I made, it's strange getting into the Christmas spirit when it sweltering outside but I enjoyed playing.
One of the sets is a set of baubles with all the pieces separately so that you can add the collars and the decorations as you wish. I stamped mine onto Christmas paper, added glossy accents and glitter and the background is created from another of the sets which has pine branches and music notes on stamped onto Kraft card.
I'll be back tomorrow with another sample or too so enjoy your Friday whatever you are up too and Au Revoir!!
