Live Life In Full Bloom


This card I made using my new tonic stamp press
It was really just playing
The stamps are Card-i-o stamps and the inks are also tonic
Was quite impressed with the results
I liked that if an image didn't stamp properly I could just re ink and do it again
so the piece was not ruined - not bad for a play around

How to Relax


Having popped over to Sue Graceful Greyhounds blog
I thought I would share a picture of my grey Stanley snuggled down for the evening
If you look closely you can just work out the bump on the right side of the sofa, that thim!
The idea of the blanket is suppose to be that he lays on top but he seems to like being under it and hiding most the time. Below is a picture of him uncovered so you can see what he looks like
Hope you have all had a lovely relaxing weekend


Mothers Day Card

but the holes are under the images so waste not want not
The green glitter card at the back was a bit I was sent as sample
The pale yellow and green flower paper where all from my scrap box
