The Writing is on the Wall !!

Hi Everyone.....................Its almost the weekend and I am on the train heading to Wirksworth !!! And where may I be going you ask ??     I am off to spend Saturday with the lovely Finnabair and other crafty friends. Its the Grungy Spell Book class and I am so looking forward to it. 

I am also going to meet up with the a crafty, and very talented, blog friend.......................Redanne :-)
My mum shares something in common  with Anne and over the last few years they have became very good friends. Anne started blogging just  one or two months before me and as you are building up your followers we became blog friends too. Finally.... we are going to meet up :-)  Hoping to meet up again with Sue C too x

Below is a tag that I made using the Artistic Outpost Paperboy set. I admired this  stamp set on many crafty makes in blogland. 

The embossing is a TH folder and I have to say I love it. I  also used one of Tim's diffusers ( oval) Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo DI's were blended all over the tag and then edges with Walnut stain


I decided to make a little bag that I could put some newspapers in ( I used some TH paper stock) 

Thoroughly enjoyed this make, which is now hanging on a branch of an artificial tree in my little sister's family room. 
Have a wonderful weekend and I will catch up with you on Monday

  1. What a stunning make Annie and wonderfully clever design. Your colours and embossing are fantastic! I'm ashamed to say that I have that oval diffuser but have yet to use - this is great inspiration though. I really love the way you have staged the little seller with his bag of wares.

    Have a terrific time both with Finnabair and Anne - please give her a big get well hug from me. Nicola x

  2. Love these stamps also Annie but especially love what you have made with them. The rolled up newspaper is a neat idea.

    Seems silly to say have a great time because I know you will. Great that you are finally meeting Anne.
