Cheese and Biscuits.

Good morning everyone, 
Hope your Friday is going well and that you have a lovely weekend planned.
It is our Cumbria workshop tomorrow
and I am really looking forward to it.
I do believe that we are in for some lovely weather too.
Before I start sorting out my bags I just thought I 
would have a catch up with you. 

Yesterday I found time to spend the afternoon doing some pyrography.
I find this so relaxing.
I have had an idea in mind , 
you know what it is like when you buy a new stamp, have a plan , 
and then you are just too busy !!!!

This is what I created 

I had purchased the cheese board a few weeks ago, 
and then I saw the new releases from AALL & Create.
This stamp  Is by Olga Heldwein and is called Balance. 
The two were just made for each other, don’t you agree? 

Just look at those mice...

And there is even a cute little stamp perfect for the underside of the board. 

Because the design is burnt into the wood the cheese board can be used and cleaned.
I think I may even have it on display in my new kitchen.
I just need to think up some names for the mice, 
any suggestions? 

I will leave you thinking, 
Time for a coffee, then back into my craft room. 

Enjoy your weekend all, 
And just for me, 
Tell someone special today , That you love them. 

Love and hugs 
Jo. xxx

Wow love this project. I've finally found a local beginners workshop on pyrography yay so that's on the 9th March , so looking forward to it and one day I might be able to produce something as gorgeous as this. Can I ask what medium do you use to stamp the image onto the wood? Thx in advance xx
