Speedy post...

... well as speedy as you can be in this hot hot hot weather - which I'm loving by the way!! I'm actually browner now than I was when I came home from Mexico last week! - that's a first for me - my 'tan' normally gets bleached off by the airconditioning on the plane home!
(but please don't think I've been laying in the garden all week - no no no I've been out clearing the garden getting ready to had the keys back to the Landlord - more about that another day..)

This is a speedy post because I have to go to work - and apparently it is going to be hotter than hot - south facing shop with full window shop front - I think I'm sweating just thinking about it! (well not actually sweating - horses sweat, men perspire and women glow - isn't that how the saying goes?? So, in that case I'm 'glowing' just thinking about it)

aaaanyhoo..... it was nephew No 3's birthday yesterday and here's the card I made him:
I love this stamp from Stampotique - Twinkie needed a little 'something' to bring to the birthday celebrations as he climbs over the 'J' on his way to the party.... so I sketched a balloon for him to carry - oh yes... I sketched... direct to page.. with a pen...  no pencilling in first! (am proud of myself that I didn't faff about with it, overthink it - just got it done! lol)
(PS I am really enjoying sketching at the moment)
Aaaaanyhoo... the birthday boy loved his card and that's all that matters isn't it?!

Have a great day - enjoy the sun....

Where do I start??????

... lets start with last Sunday and the class I taught at The Craft Barn wjth lovely group who got inky, painty and a little bit sticky making this:
 A wooden triptych altered using the fab.u.lous Lynne Perrella stamps from PaperArtsy and Spellbinder dies.  I love these stamps.. .and how the project looks - here's the icon front & back:
...I laid all the finished pieces out to be photographed:
... and when I turned around all the group were snapping photos like a group of paparazzi trying to catch a drunk celeb coming out of a nightclub!! lol
Gabby, Francesca, Sue & Allison & Karin tucked behind.

So, that was Sunday...
Are you wondering what I was doing for the last 3 weeks when I haven't blogged?
Well, there was a lot of this:
... and a bit of this:
...and then.... oh.. too much, I'll tell you more tomorrow..

Thanks for stopping by..

Have a good day
