Friday 19 July 2019


Good morning all, 
and happy Friday to you.
I am up early, walked Eric, changed the bed, washer on and even done some cleaning. 
Must be Spring....but not outside .
It was a very wet dog walk this morning. 

Today I am going to share one of my recent Aall & Create makes with you. 
Here I used some of the smaller ‘bonus ‘ stamps that come with the main portrait images. 
Stamps #217 and #218 

It started out with one of those backgrounds from my ‘spare ‘ pile, 

This one was made using shaving foam and distress re-inkers. 

I started by stamping my frame. 

I then added some colour using my Inktense pencils and water. 

Next I took an ATC coin, one made from  grey board. 
I do love using these on cards, another obsession of mine. 
I added some distress Oxide ink and water splats. 

Then I stamped these gorgeous scissors twice, added colour cut out and 
decoupaged them. 

Look at the dimension. 

This makes a fabulous centre pieces, to which I added the sentiment.

I am 99%
But oh....
That 1%

So me,,,,wouldn’t you agree Mum...!!!!!!

Some matting and layering and splats of white Posca pen.

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
It is our Cumbria workshop tomorrow and then hopefully a day off on Sunday. 
Something different tomorrow, 
Hope the Crafters  like it...

Take care 
Much love and hugs
