Such A Small World

I know I've said it before but I'm going to say it again. I just LOVE this blogging world. In the last week I have met (in cyberspace you understand) two lovely ladies who live nearby and another lady who stayed at the same hotel as us on holiday last year. I am constantly amazed at what a small world it is and I feel honoured to know you all. It is lovely not being a lone crafter anymore.

I know I rabbit on a bit in my posts so I'm going to try and be brief tonight, I have an hour of the Chelsea Flower Show, best week of the year and then my favourite film, Message in a Bottle, on Five, better get the hankies out!!!! so not much blogging time.

I have made a card today using the Crafty Individuals stamps from the blog candy I won recently. They are something different for me and I have thoroughly enjoyed using them.

The cuttlebugged background was glimmer misted with denim and key lime pie and I inked the matted card with colorbox pigment inks.

The tags were stamped onto paper sprayed with moonglow using colorbox inks and each had an eyelet attached and a bit of interesting fibre to make them realistic.

See, I can be brief when I try!!!! Thanks as always for visiting. I'm off to drool at some lovely gardens.

Hi Lisa, thanks for visiting so thought I'd come see what you are up to. Sooooo pleased I've found a glimmer mist friend, I was beginning to question my sanity as I use it so much. But they are fab, so is your tag card.

Hi Lisa
Know what you mean about blogland, crafters particularly tend to be lovely people and very friendly, I have had wonderful comments from people from all over the world and I havn't been blogging all that long. Love your card and it's great you're using lots of different techniques, really creative
