Proud Stag.

Good evening, and thanks for joining me. So sorry for not getting in touch for the last few days but it has been a bit hectic. Saturday was workshops at Glynis's in Stockport with and Inky morning and a Groovi afternoon. As always it was great to spend time with such lovely ladies.

Mikey and Fran have moved in with us for a couple of months before they move to Nottingham where Mikey has got a promotion. I am just so proud of his as it was only a few years ago that we were told he would never be able to work and that he would be on permanent disability. I really am a very proud Mum and my family mean the world to me. Time with family really does put the world and the sad goings on into perspective.

In fact I have just spent a lovely couple of hours with Danielle and Fran shopping and having a cofeee, great girly fun...

Mind you Karl has said that we need to put up the 'no vacancy ' sign at our front

Did you catch our Barbara this weekend on Hochanda? The shows were fabulous and no wonder products were selling out fast .

Today I am going to share my Stag card with you.... I do love these new stamps , and the mask is so useful

I started by stamping the Stag using black Archival ink, and then added the sun,

Next came the sky using the cloud mask

And then the landscape using the landscape mask...

I did use quite a few masks for this design

Then some stamping

I do love how it all takes shape...

Then it was to colour the Stag. I decided to use Artistry ink pads and watercolour...

Some matting and layering and a had to be Beauty....

He really does look so proud...

Tomorrow it is our Hazel Grove workshops, so more crafty play...and I actually have my new car...I am so pleased has taken so long to get it, I have really missed it. So hopefully things will get back to normal....if there is such a thing ...

Quick cup of tea before bed...see you tomorrow ladies...

Take care everyone

Much love and hugs

Jo. xxxx
