Morning lovely Crafters. I hope you had a smashing weekend despite the typical British Summer weather!!! It seemed to be catching as we sat waiting for the Canadian Grand Prix last night watching the pouring rain in Canada and listening to it on the windows here. They have promised a better day today so I've hung my washing out...watch this space!!!
As I mentioned in previous posts it was was my lovely Hubby's birthday last weekend. He was 21 again!!!!! Well, that's what he kept telling everyone. I always find it difficult to come up with a card for him that I feel is special enough and usually end up going out and buying one but not this year. I recently found some absolutely gorgeous stamps at The Craft Barn from Impression Obsession, a brand I haven't come across before but I struggled not to buy them all.
This lovely lighthouse is one and I simply stamped it with Broken China Distress Ink onto watercolour paper and then painted in the detail. I'm really liking ripped edges at the minute so matted and layered it with some vellum and the script was stamped with my bargain Colour My World Background stamps, I think they were £3.99 for two and they're really big.
Another favourite is this Martha Stewart Baker's Twine, a blog candy win and the starfish came from my local market, another bargain buy!!
Right, I need to go and be productive today, I have a date with the dentist tomorrow to have a wisdom tooth taken out, ouch!!!! and I'm not looking forward to it so I might not get much done afterwards. I'm getting prepared to feel sorry for myself!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope your Monday goes well.
