Nearly time to go back to work . . . :(


Well my two weeks off is nearly done, truth be told it hasnt been the best holiday I've ever had, there has been pain, PMT, teenage hormones, crap weather and that's just me (LOL). I have however managed to get some craft shopping done, visited Pickleberry and she had the Dina Wakeley stamps, I just couldn't resist them, when I got some time I made a master board using distress paints and masks, cut out some tags from them and decorated with my new stamps, I'm so impressed how good they look, I think it must be because the stamps are just so brilliant. I'd cut out four tags all together so played around with some stampotique and holtz stamps as well.


I had one card to do for my baby bruv's birthday, really hard to think of something different to do for male cards, doesn't help that his wife Debs is also a crafter, so a bit more pressure to produce something she will like too, doubly hard when the mojo has left the building and refuses to return, so this is what I ended up with, havent rung for a comment yet, tee hee.

Also over hols have had major blogger probs, so I have been reading all your posts but have not been able to comment, grrrrrr.  My photos have loaded ok today so cross fingers again that this will post.

Right next two days are going to have lots of allocated crafting time, have bribed mojo back into building by buying some new stamps and ordering some more of the new distress stains, check out Craft Obsessions they are on offer at £3.89 and free postage over £10, a bargain me thinks. So gonna try a challenge or two and make a couple more cards for upcoming dates.

So nice to be back blogging.

Fab tags, Pidd! Are you in your Picasso blue mode? I'm sure the Dina stamps helped lure the mojo back. I caved in and bought the text one (create with abandon) and would love them all. Mr Lottery says no.

Love those Dina stamps! Too bad that holiday's have to end. Sounds like you could use another!!!

Thanks for your blog visit and sweet comment, and good luck in my giveaway drawing! Hugs, Terri
