Having Fun !!!!

Hi Everyone....Just a quick post as this week has been very busy, both at work and crafting. Still trying to get rid of this horrible head cold too !! 

I just wanted to say 'Happy Easter' to those of you who celebrate it and as always I hope you all have a fabulous weekend whatever you are doing x 
Its a holiday weekend here in the UK and so I do not return to work until Tuesday.......Yipee !! 

Below is a quick look at some new stamps I have been playing with from LaBlanche. I first saw this stamp  on a tag made by the very talented Astrid McLean of Astrid's Artistic Efforts and she kindly informed me of the make.( When the stamp arrived I realised that I already had a LaBlanche stamp that my lovely mum had bought for me, but i had not got round to playing with it !!)  It's a silicone stamp and you don't have to put great pressure on it to obtain a clear image. Great if you have difficulty with dexterity. 

I used both of the stamps I have, inking up just some of the areas. Like I said it was great fun playing but now I have to go and catch up with chores that I cannot leave any longer. My craft room also requires a bit of a tidy up too.

Best Wishes and Have fun x

  20. WOnderful images...Fun too! Love this! Happy Easter to you! Hope you feel better!

  21. Hi Annie :)
    Happy Easter to you as well (yesterday) and I do hope you're getting back to par. This crazy weather is not helping! Your project put me in a trance. I love how prominent the center image is and when you try to look around the edges, your eye is really drawn back to it. It's a beautiful piece of art and very well crafted!
    Enjoy your free time...

  22. Annie....your card using the LaBlanche clock collage stamp is really lovely. I love the colors and the way you have collaged the images on your card. So pretty! You have really created a lovely piece with the masked brown-ish background and the different collaged stamps on top. I love all of the stamps you've used and your design is really nice. I also wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment about the Santa plane. I inadvertently deleted it by mistake...but I wanted you to know that I saw it, read it and appreciate it. <3 Candy
