Out of Africa.

Good afternoon all, thanks for popping in today , sorry I haven't caught up with you over the last couple of days but well, life has just been more hectic than ever. Together with a dreadful headache that has kept me company for a few days....plus two rather lovely cold sores...mmm

I blame it all on my two little furry friends and our mishap on Saturday....

Anyway , hope your week is going well...I have just got all my bags packed ready for the journey up to Glasgow tomorrow , for our Clarity Glasgow workshop on Saturday..

So looking forward to it...and Eileen's cake,,,.oh and Emma's hugs...oh I could go on...

Did you catch Barbars shows at the weekend? I recorded them , fab shows...well done Barb and Paul...

Here is one of my samples....

As soon as I saw these stamps ....I loved them ...and I got to use all my favourite colours...

A win,,,win....

I had an hours play with my Spectrum Noir AquaTint inks and I made so many backgrounds....all the kitchen surfaces were covered..

Then it was just a case of stamping some animals...black Archival is a must...

Now just look at that meerkat...how cute is he...

Next came the charcoal pencils....you know how much I love these.

They just give a bit more depth and dimension...

The hardest bit of this design was choosing which stamps to use and which ones had to stay behind...so many gorgeous animals...

Speaking of animals...

I realised today that I haven't drawn a winner for the fab Wild Flowers Stencil...

So I wrote all the names down of you lovely crafters who left me a comment, screwed them up, and put them in Eric's dish....look at these two...

I asked them to choose a winner...and before I could stop them they had three of the bits of paper ...one was quite soggy...sorry...

So here we are ...the three....not one..( thanks Tess and Eric!!!) ..winners of the fab Clarity Stencil...

So ladies , if you would like to pm or email me your address , I will get your stencil in the post....

Jrcrafts28@gmail. Com

That's is from me today...

Take care all,

Much love and hugs

Jo. Xxxx

  4. This was so vibrant on the TV, one of my favourites as the length made it really stand out. Hope you feel better soon! Oooo I'm hoping the Donna B is me! I will email you in the hopes it is and say my thanks to you Tess and Eric for picking me. Xx
