Sunday Stampers Week 262 - Monday 17th June

Good Morning Friends!

I hope you all had a super weekend, I didn't get much crafting time, but I did make my Sunday Stampers card nice and early this week! I have a big card-making week ahead, lots of family and friends birthdays and still some commissions before I can start 'enjoying' my sabbatical from our next craft class. Fortunately it's the bathing belle card we made last time, but with a different group of crafters -however making up all the packs still takes quite a lot of time!

First of all though, I would like to say a big welcome to my new follower Sharon...thank you for joining me in my little corner of blogland Sharon! Do you know, after I got to 50 followers and had the Candi draw, I got up to 55 and have been static there for a while, so it's especially good to see the numbers increase!

This week,  Hels set us the theme of creating a project with 'guys' in the theme, so I went straight for my Sam Poole Sherlock Holmes stamps. I have posted projects here before with them, but hadn't used them in a while.

This is a 6x6 card, starting with a base layer of black. I used a newsprint stamp, also by Sam Poole to create the background on white card and then tied ribbon to one side and added a button.

I stamped the magnifying glass, 'confidential' and Holmes character in black archival and heat embossed with clear powder. After I'd made it, I suddenly had the thought that I'd made a similar one already, but I checked back and if I have, I didn't post it! That's it..simples!

Now..normally I would try and look at your blogs for updates before work, but this morning my links have all disappeared..Yikes! I will try and look after lunch, otherwise lets hope it's resolved itself when I get home tonight!

Happy Monday all,
Carole X

Now the green eyed monster in me would like the lot, as well. lol. But sadly I must not be greedy as I was just bought my lovely E Bosser so no more spends for a while. lol.
    I love that finger print in the magnifying glass, a really good touch.
