Craft Barn weekend, YAY!!!

Hello lovely crafty People,
This weekend was the craft barn extravaganza. Well I was so impressed....again. So much talent under 4 roofs. Lots of inspiration and such sunny demonstrators, too many to mention but I would like to Thank them all;0)
I popped over for a quick session in metal, sounds kinky but it wasn't, ;0)
Tried my hand at making a post it note cover. I was useless but maybe I'll get the hang, so I bought a basic set of tools to play with, as you do and then off to visit all the wondrous demonstrations. 

 Anyway, made a card for my son's birthday, the metal  was using the cuttlebug and an alphabet folder from Crafts-Too . Idea for the letter disks from Carol Cann at the Craft Barn, Thanks Carol

I also used a pic from a Crafty Individuals pad. At the Craft Barn I was watching Jean, (owner, I think) of Crafty Individuals she's great, stayed for ages as she created a tag, using tissue to stamp onto first, absolutely magic. You have to try it, really subtle stamped images, I was totally entranced. Also, she suggested that we try using foils with just a glue stick, I tried it here, what d'you think?

I was quite pleased it stuck nicely to the corrugated card even though it doesn't show very well here:(

p.s. Have taken my list of lovely blogs off, I still follow you all,  it's just I had too many and it was slowing down the blog loading  xxx

This is an amazing masculine card! I love the corrugated cardstock with foil and also the way you've customized it for your son.

I would love to have watched all the demonstrations too and am intrigued by what you've seen!!

Yay what a great solution to the man card problem but if I hear of one more person who was at the Craft Barn last weekend when I couldn't be there I think I will explode with jealousy. It sounds fantastic. By the way I tracked you down by doing a google search-what else? Hugs BettyXXX
