The Other Half!!!

The cards I'm posting tonight are the other half of the projects that were published in Craft Stamper.
Once again they are done with the TandaStamps Retro Women I love those two sets!!!
The first card is called 'A Musical Evening' and is made to look like a programme along with tickets. The inspiration for that one came from the sheet of background paper which I found in a Paper Journeys 6 x 6 pad.
The second card.....and my most favourite, is a representation of a magazine cover complete with issue date and number. The scrummy lettering is done with my My Sentiments Exactly Retro Alphabets and Numbers which cost me an arm and a leg but I love them sooooooooo much.

As hubby was going to a works presentation evening this evening and didn't need feeding, DD and I decided to go for a ride out and treat ourselves to tea. We popped over to Derby Garden Centre and had the most gorgeous sandwiches with a bowl of salad from the salad bar and then nipped into Craft Central. I found a stamp I have been looking for for ages so I well pleased about that. It's a Creative Expressions stamp of an Oriental lady with a fan inside a circle. Can't wait to have a play with that.
Didn't buy anything else too exciting from there but on the way out I decided that I wanted a pair of gardening clogs to wear instead of wellingtons. So I had a look at the green ones which were pretty boring and decided I'd leave them for the time being and then I saw them........a pair of bright pink gardening clogs!!! Well I just had to have them.......they are soooooo cool..........and this is the woman who hates anything!!! They do make rather odd noises as you walk in them so it's a good job I shan't be wearing them out anywhere.
When we left there we called at the supermarket and DD bought me a dinky little bucket in bright pink with bumble bees is very cute, but looking at the weeds in our garden I don't think it will hold much so I have it on my desk for putting all my bits of rubbish in.

Well I have a class tomorrow which is on using chalks so I think I am going to design a couple of new cards for it. It has been a pretty popular class for the last few weeks but you do get fed up of doing the same cards all the time so I shall do something new.
I hope the order with the Cuttlebugs comes tomorrow. It seems to have been ages since they were ordered. Knowing my luck they will be out of stock but hopefully I'll get my Cricut cartridge.....Fabulous Finds.

Right......a quick tidy of my desk and then I had best get chalking.

Bye for now
