Ooops Late Again

What has happened to the weather, it's been so soggy this weekend hasn't it. Yesterday was torrential rain that soaks and today is heavy mizzle that soaks. I hope it hasn't spoiled anyone's plans too much. We've had a nice time doing a bit of crafting, cooking and playing board games, which has made a lovely change.

I even managed to get my design project ATC done for The Stampman ATC swap mid month inspirational nudge, yes I know it's a few days late, sorry about that. Janet asked us to think Vintage this month so I used these lovely Non Sequitur stamps. Jill has them all half price on the web site and they are gorgeous so make sure you have a peek.

I used various distress inks to build up the background and then cut out the rose and elements to add some depth. Stickles were added to the rose head for some bling. I love a bit of sparkle!!

Short and sweet from me today, I'm needed in a game of scrabble, so thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

What a gorgeous ATC, Lisa. I had forgotten about those roses - I bought them about ten years ago, but have not used them in the past five I think! Love how you have coloured them. The weather here has been much the same. as long as it gets it out of it's system by next weekend I don't mind!

Despite the rain and the fact that summer seems to have disappeared, it sounds as if you had a wonderful weekend...and definitely my kinda weekend.
