C.C Designs July Preview!

Well... it's been ages since i posted to my blog, those who know me know i've had some devestating news recently i lost my father and i've been so upset etc with all of it, I've not been into my crafts or shop stuff for nearly two months, but with time things get a lil easier and tho nothing will be the same again i have started to get back into the things i enjoy a lil more.

With that said i wanted to thank the amazing design teams i'm on and my friends/family for all the support and understanding you've shown me over the last difficult months i can't thank you enough.

 I'm delighted to be here today so showcase the brand new release for JULY over at C.C. Designs Stamps, these will be available to purchase from the 3rd July and 12:00 noon EST.

April Showers

Morning all!
It's our brand new challenge at Charisma! Today! And this fortnight's theme is ''April Showers'' 
The way the weather is here in the UK it really (well to me) doesn't matter weather it is really April or not but legend has it that the great british weather really is just rain... i sooo hope we have a nice summer didn't really get much of one last year.

With that said my Design Team creation today is featuring the lovely ''Roberto's Rascals Grouchy Kitty'' stamp from C.C.Designs  

I totally love this stamp, so reminds me of my kitty kat, he hates the rain and now he's back out in the land of the garden it's so funny when the rain starts he dives through the cat flap quicker than anything i've ever seen!

So here's my card that i created for today, it's very CAS for me as i wanted to show off the actual stamp as i really love it! and it's kinda a scene in itself! 

*Card Recipe*

*C/Stock -White Neenah Card from The Hobby House & blue Card Stock from limetree crafts
*Mediums - Promarkers & Flexmarkers
*Stamp - CC Designs Roberto's Rascals grouchy kitty
*Other  - Gems from Meiflower
