Just Stamping.

Hello to you all. Been happily playing with all my new products from Stampin' Up. Love this hostess set. Just stamped them and dragged the colour from the ink with a damp paintbrush. Made lots of variations and the black and white theme look stunning.

Been very busy with card orders and my photography. We had a fab 5 days in Suffolk. Stunning part of the country. We had a fab time in Southwold,this is a must visit if you got to Suffolk.

Just a little different today

Just sharing some of my photos of a fab place in Lichfield. Three French Hens. I have took up photography and just enjoy getting different shots. Did some of these photos in secret

Love shops like this

This is just the most devine french shop ever. It sells everything and the smell as you walk in, it.

This really is a picture of the moon. Whilst in the desert in Egypt, we got to gaze at the stars and different planets. The guide took this photo through the huge telescope. Just think its amazing and you would not think how far away this is.....

Embossed images

Love using brown cards for my images. Used sparkly black embossing powder and white ink to create this simple card. Do the embossed images first then stamp again using white ink on black card. So many different uses for this combination.
