Plus I managed to fit in an evening at the Peterborough Beer festival, armed with my union jack wellies and a waterproof jacket I had a brilliant night with friends, glad we wore our wellies it had rained most of Friday and the beer festival is in giant marquees so loads of muddy ground :)

Monsters and Aliens

Hello peeps,
I don't know about you but I love the film Monsters and Aliens, the alien is soooooo funny.
One day while in Sirstampalot, I wish I could remember why I said "what the Flagnar" which if you have seen the film makes a lot of sense(I am not totally sure how to spell it!!!!), so of course Janice and Andy asked me to explain what I meant, so long story nearly short they watched the film.
Most of the people I know in blogland are local and have been to Sirstampalot but for those who have never been, you have to buzz to get in the shop and if Andy happens to answer the buzz he always says "Hail Gallaxhar"(again from the film) before letting me in........ So when I saw these stamps I had to make a card based as much as I could on monsters and aliens and obviously the characters are Janice and Andy.
So after an epic explanation here goes and oh yes another double easel its all your fault sara ! you have unleashed a double easel monster :)

The stamps I used areSuper Hero Edwin
The paper is October Afternoon: Incoming Transmission
Distress Ink: Weathered wood
Stickles Stardust
Glimmer Mist Dazzling Diamonds
Bella Baubles Diamond ice
Now for the copics:
Greys:C7, C5, C3, C1, C00
Blues:B29, B24, B23, B21, B000, B0000
Browns:E59, E57, E55
Skin: E02, E00, E000, E0000, and R20 for blush
Well that's it for now Hail Gallaxhar!!!!!

Football Crazy

Hello fellow groovers,
I have been naughty, I have been crafting and not blogging. Every time I finished a card I couldnt put my copics down I had to start another.
Do you know that feeling, you cant get anything else done until you get the card finished thats in your head?
I had to force myself to sit down and download and sort my photos when I got in from work today, and I promised myself just one posted by bedtime, I just love love love the new magnolias.
I have a lot of friends who play, watch and love football so when I saw these stamps I just had to have em :)
I currently live in Peterborough, but I moved here from Norwich a few years ago so I am a Norwich girl at heart so I just had to use the Norwich City colours...........
Plus I forgot to mention I have a little obsession with double easel cards at the mo
