Floating on a cloud

I thought i would share with you a couple of things i demo'd on saturday, i didnt finish the completed cards untill i came home, i just taught the technique of the inking/brayering and making the clouds background.

Both of the cards take no time at all to complete so if your batch making cards to sell these are ideal and because they are not using pre bought embellishments they are cost effective too.
Materials ive used are all available from Suzicraft in Stockton.

Now onto non crafty news, disaster hit home on Tuesday, i had a washing machine malfunction, i went to empty the finished load and everything was still dripping wet so i put it back on for a spin and it wouldn't cooperate, wouldn't empty, wouldn't open so 1 hour later and a soaking wet floor (no rephrase that a flooded floor) my washer was well and truly kaput. Its a good job my sister lives close so i took the soaking clothes and finished them off in her washer (bearing in mind this was at 10pm and i had to be at work the next morning at 6am)
The only good thing to come out of the misfortune was I'm now in possession of a new digital washing machine but my bank balance is groaning as am i,  i had some of that money earmarked for a crafting splurge :(

Well Kings Cafe are doing a craft fair at the end of the month, sell some of your cards to compensate!!! Love these two cards, I love the paper tearing technique with the kytes, keep forgetting about that one.
