Back for a night!

My wonderful husband has managed to get me hooked up to the internet for a night. It is still chaos here, dust and plaster everywhere and most of my stash is in boxes so these cards are very simple I am afraid. Jayne (Serendipidy) has been texting me the themes so I can work on the cards as and when I can, I have currently pinched the kitchen table.

So here are the cards sorry they are all on one post but it will be easier I think for you all! They also include my first attempts at distresses inks so feedback will be fantastic if you are able. I will visit all your blogs as soon as I am able, miss you all lots xxxx

Saturday Crafter - theme via Jane Carroll on facebook as shaped cards.
This is my first attempt at distressed inks, I used milled lavender. It is very simple card stock, prima flowers and lace and gems. The backing paper inside the card is a chinese papermania in lavender. The image is WOJ.
Whiff of Joy - Stars and Stripes - theme from Jayne via text.
This is my Oakley in distressed inks. The backing papers are basic grey archaic. The stars are blue brads and the stripes are in the papers. I have borrowed Janes nesties (labels 1 and 2) for a few weeks so they are hers that crop up in the cards.
Cute Card Thursday - Mirror image - something shiny - via text from Jayne.
This does shine honest! Papers are basic card stock in pink and gold and the gorgeous sheet is from the once upon a time papers from DCWV. Prima hydranga's, brads and spacers and gems all shine as does the image coloured in twinkling H2O's.
Spoonful of Sugar - Blue and Green - via text from Jayne.
I hope you like this. I have since added leaves to the flower - but the light is too dark to take a photo. That is the problem when all your stash is in boxes! The papers are basic grey - boxer I think, the ribbon and flower and spacer are stash and the image has been watercoloured with pencils.

Vicky it sounds like your are in total bedlam!! It just goes to show what a dedicated crafter you are to still manage to make these gorgeous cards in amongst the dust and debris - I salute you!! I am interested to follow your progress with the distress inks. I am new to these but have become a big admirer of those who use them. Are they in ink pad form or liquid? See how little I know?! Hope to see you back in full swing soon.
