In between orders..........

I managed to have a little play with my new stamp. I'm quite pleased with the result & can think of quite a few people that I can use it for but this one is for a special young lady.

A couple for the guys....................

using Dufex decoupage & Dovecraft 'Masculine' papers. These need finishing off with inserts before I can have a play with my latest purchase. I got a new stamp in the post today so will have a play later. I am very much a newcomer to stamping so still finding my feet. Hope I make a good job of this one -lol!

Another card

This time with thanks to Jazz. I have used - with Jackie's permission - one of her beautiful photos from her recent holiday. You can read all about it here.
Thanks for visiting

Managed to get a couple of cards made

One of them using paper shapes I punched with Pam's flower & leaf embossing punches when she visited the other day and the other based very loosely on a sketch I found somewhere. I can't for the life of me remember where I found it but thank you very much whoever it was.
I very much enjoyed Pam's visit the other day. It was lovely to have someone to craft with for a change.

A sunny day for a change

It's been a beautiful day here - warm enough to get the paddling pool out which I duly did, filled it using buckets. Lily was very excited & couldn't wait to get in so I came indoors for 2 secs to pick up a towel & where is she? Not in the paddling pool but sitting in the bucket of water I had been filling the pool with - lol.

I managed to make a card today but not sure whether I like it or not I've used Freds flowers & Secret Garden papers. I would appreciate any comments - good , bad or indifferent!

by not 1 but 3 of my fellow bloggers & imag-e-nationers. Thank you very much Liz, Pam & Joanie. I need to have a think about who I am going to nominate for the award because pretty much every blog I read already has it. Guess some will get it again. lol.

The rules -
1.The winner can put the logo on their blog.
2.Link the person you received your award from.
3.Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4.Put links of those blogs on yours.
5.Leave a message on the blogs you've nominated.

The blogs that inspire me & my choices are
I know Pam & Joanie that you both gave me this award but you do both inspire me so it had to be done. I also am certain that all these ladies have been awarded this before but if you don't want it again don't be so inspiring - lol :o))
