Well, it's Friday night and I'm watching Coronation Street as I write this post...don't ever let it be said that I don't know how to start my weekend in style!! hehe...

For the last three days, I've done so much die cutting that I think my Cuttlebug is on fire and my right arm is definitely getting the workout of the this rate, I'll end up resembling Rocky's next opponent!!

Anyway, I must admit I'm absolutely shattered but before I retire for the evening...I wanted to share today's card and the final card that I made for the Kuretake shows on Create and Craft.
This card features a stamp from Funky Kits by the wonderful Leanne Ellis. I just adore Leanne's style of artwork and this is just such a fabulous image which I handpainted using the Zig Art and Graphic Twin Pens. I then highlighted some of the areas, using Wink of Stella for a shimmery effect to the wings and clouds.

And if you love this stamp, then you might like to check out my cards in the latest edition of Making Cards magazine, using the Alice In Wonderland set of stamps by the same artist. Let me know what you think of the card set and if you do buy the stamps...I'd love to see what you make with them. Pop back and leave me the link and I'll come and take a look. And if that's not reason enough to go and buy the magazine, there are also some gorgeous free papers and card ideas, from my friend and their guest designer, Sarah Hurley.
Anyway, I think it's time for me to say goodnight and I'll try and get round to all your blogs before I go to bed, that's if I can keep my eyes open!
Hope you all have a great weekend and it's promised that the sun is going to make an appearance, so...hope the weather is good wherever you are!
See you next week.
Love Emma
