Happy Monday everyone! I had to answer some questions and attach a recent picture of myself for an article I've been asked to do (so excited!) and since the article is coming out in the next couple of months and I only had pictures of myself wearing winter clothes I thought I'd try and take pictures of myself. As I held the camera at arms length I knew my long monkey arms would come in handy one day! Well I snapped snapped and snapped away and I deleted and deleted and deleted. My face would either look too fat, double chinned, shiny...just totally awful. I must have spent a full hour trying to get one. I was inside, outside...I hope my neighbours didn't see me! In the end out of desperation I sent one I'd taken last week with strict instructions to airbrush it to the max lol!
Here are the cards I made at the crop on Saturday. I know I said I made 7 cards...and I did, but I made 3 of 2 and 1 of 1.
When I delivered Craft World's order last week Gaynor showed me the new Basic Grey papers...BIG mistake. OMG...they are gorgeous and here they are! They're from the Kyoshi range and I love 'em :)
I've stitched some left over strips of cs together from the range....

I think this one is my know how I love green and this is just yummy...sigh...

I've used another American Art Stamps image here...
Can you tell I only brought one green ribbon to the crop? I'm not sure about it on the stitched card but it's taped in between the layers so I'll leave it. I've another 2 to make so I'm going to change it to something plainer.
I've managed to get a lot done today...mostly by email and phone but I feel I've accomplished a lot. I ordered a label gun this morning to put the labels on the back of the packages. It will be so much quicker and less expensive that printing them on the computer and labelling them by hand.
That's it for today folks. Hope you have a good week.
Catch ya later x

Kerry, have MME tiny dancer range in, not sure if they had the right 1 as it only shows you 1 side of the paper.
