Inspired by...

A card inspired by the fabulous Jennifer McGuire - I was browsing through some of her work and loved her simple, one layer cards using pencils to colour on kraft cardstock.



Recipe:
Stamps - Hero Arta
Card - Kraft (PTI)
Other - Prismacolour pencils/white gel pen/corner rounder punch


Did anyone see Tim Holtz demoing his and Ranger products on QVC last night? Apparently he only does one UK show a year, I couldn't believe how fast things were flying off the shelves! I treated myself to one of his new books- they were selling by the thousands!

I'm off to London today for a few days to go on a journalism course - I'll catch up with you all at the weekend!

I LOVE this card - it has a rather old-fashioned feel that is really appealing.
I certainly did see Tim Holtz! I love his style but couldn't get on the website to register (hate phone ordering) so will have to wait a month to get that fab kit :-(

This is simply stunning- how delicate and striking all at the same time :D

Have sky+ the Tim Holtz show for drooling over later. Have a great time in London on your course :D
