Fun and Sun!

Well, how can a day get more perfect? First of all the weather is AMAZING here - warmer than Majorca, and it's not often you can say that in North Yorkshire! Then, I spent the morning at a workshop with Kate, and for once had a really productive morning. I loved doing these, I love Stampotique stamps, and playing with Kate's extensive range of these and Tim Holtz's stamps as well as some of the new Distress Ink colours made for a cracking start to the weekend! I made this pad for a friend who invited us over for a BBQ this evening, thought it would make a change to a bunch of flowers.

I adore this set of stamps (they are from paperbag studios) and I have been lusting after them for ages, so it was nice to have a play, and now I know I really want them!
Anyway, I was on such a roll, that I came home and made this pad for another friend who had us over last weekend. The text is from a Mills and Boon, they are so great for stuff like this! I have cheekily used it as my entry for Wednesday Stamper's theme of the week, which is Orange:

Tomorrow I have to take my son into Harrogate for a swimming gala (boo!), but I suppose it would be rude to go all that way and not call in at Dyan's and satisfy that itch for some of the new distress ink pads....(yeh!)


  1. Your Wednesday Stamper entry is great, but I love all the pieces in this post. Great use of Stampotique stamps!

  2. Love all of them, they are great!

  3. Oh, these are so wonderful!!! LOoks like you had a great day with Kate! Your creations are wonderful, and I agree...anywhere near an art store and you have to visit!!

  4. All of your creations are great, I can relate to the orange piece ;) ... great closeup!

  5. There's an award for you on my blog :-)


Thank you for taking the time to visit. It's always nice to know that someone has stopped by, and it would be lovely if you left a message!
