 I am back from Africa and this is my desk today. I had a shipment of the Winter Distress Inks so opened one for myself to play with. 
I had an idea while I was away so scroll down.
 Home made tissue tape.
are you asking 'How?'
Well I had some micropore tape with me on holiday in case my pain patch came loose while swimming.
I looked at it and thought Tissue Tape.
I stuck 2 pieces on my craft sheet and stamped the top one. The one below is coloured first with my new DI then stamped.

I was hoping to post these last week but the internet in Africa is slow.
Anyhow we enjoyed beading by the pool. I made an ankle bracelet and necklace.
If you have got this far go over to Julia's blog for some sneaky snooping.
If my other idea works I will post tomorrow when I have tried it out.

My thoughts are with her family.

Hi Carol, thanks for the nice comment on my blog. Like you, I'm behind with visiting the blogs, but then it always takes me most of the week to get round them all!!

Pics will be coming soon as 4 of us were taking them and I need to go through them to find the best. We did some amazing things. I miss the weather too.
