Bit of a delay...then an Epiphany!

Hello! I'm so sorry for the delay to both my Penny Black Saturday teammates and my Crafters Companion ones (already!). I had a really busy week last week then as soon as I got some free time, I came down with a kidney infection followed by nasty side effects to the antibiotics so crafting and blogging were the last things on my mind! So here's a bit of a catch up.
There's a new Penny Black Saturday challenge up, Love & Kisses, sponsored by the lovely 1-2-3 Stitch with a $20 voucher to their store! The DT cards are beautiful so make sure you hop over and have a look. I was going to still make a card for the challenge but now I think I'll just cut my losses and get on with next saturdays one!
Next up, the launch of the Epiphany Shape Studio tool!! This was launched on Create & Craft by Leann on Sunday lunchtime, and I saw 3 of my cards!!! Woo hoo!! My mum taped it bless her!

This is such a cool addition to your punches, it makes beautiful epoxy shapes & buttons to decorate your cards & projects, matching perfectly to whatever it is you're making, plus there's gorgeous fabric, plastic & metal findings to go with it, I've got my eye on the vintage style metal ones!

Here's a little how-to guide on the Crafters Companion Blog.
And here's the cards I've made; sorry there are a lot of photos! The first 3 are the ones I spotted on the show, then there's 3 more. All the links to the stamps, pens & papers are in the InLinkz boxes below.
Each one is for a different challenge so I'll put the links under each card.
I'm entering this into CAS-ual Fridays - Paper Piecing (the little Duck is paper pieced using the yellow floral paper)


I'm entering this into Papertake - black, white & red all over

This is going into Cupcake Craft - Twine

This is for Top Tip Tuesday - Mystical, Magical & Fantasy

This one is for Sir Stampalot Challenge - In the Garden

Finally, I'd let to submit this into Allsorts - Free & Easy!

Well done if you've reached the end!! Thanks for looking! :-)
