My Blog has been neglected lately as I have been unwell for some weeks due to a change in arthritis medication. I have come down to stay with my good friend Leo.
mmmmm how am I going to sleep tonight with this lot.

The background is made with Cosmic Shimmers then run through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder. Mad Hatters Tea Party from Stampattack.
The striped panel at the bottom of the card is made by sticking D/S tape in different widths to a piece of cs. Remove alternate backing papers to reveal the sticky side and add glitter. Remove the rest of the tape and add adifferent colour of glitter. Burnish well.

Octagonal Window Card


I made this tag book recently. The images are stamped with a Ranger Archival Black Inkpad.
The images themselves are coloured using Cut n Dry nibs with distress inks. Finally the whole images are coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using cut n dry foam. This gives the appearance of Vintage tinted photographs.
