Hi Coops!!
Wow, wow, wow!!, your cards are amazing!!, your colours are so beautiful and I do love creative expression stamps (I have quite a few so must do some distress myself again, used to do it all the time but the mess put me off lol!!!). Eurovision was very painful, and I agree with you, why do we put ourselves through it??!!
Take care hun, and enjoy the weekend!
Love Vicky xx

Rachel said...

Hi :) These cards are all so gorgeous- especially the first one- I think the white area of the moon makes it v striking! :) I've been trying distressing myself lately and am just hoping practice makes perfect in the end as i think I'm a tad heaby-handed at times ;) had to laugh about your inky fingers tho, I've had teal stained nails since Saturday night!! ;) Think I found your blog through docrafts a few weeks ago when I first discovered blogland- I've become addicted v quickly and have even started my own little blog now!! :) Rx

Fab, fab and fab again. I love DIs and I love getting down and messy. Did I say I love what you've done with these - the colours are fantastic and the images are soooo good with the backgrounds you have created.
So my type of card!!
