out of action!

Well I will be out of action for a couple of weeks... I fractured my right ankle.. during a choral workshop on saturday.. and I wasnt going to miss a thing so strapped it up and iced then went to A&E that night... so no cards for a while until i can sit at the desk without discomfort.

I found some Jac paper ( double sided adhesive paper) and used a doily to emboss with gold glitter then blue . it looks ok... this is for the STVSCD01 challenge

my first attempt at soot stamping.. and I like this technique.. rather like polished stone one never knows what its going to turn out like.
Gotta stop fiddling and get down to some birthday cards today though.
This picture is the result of 50 years of seaching for my sister Pauline.. in the process I found my brother Dick, un aware that I had any other siblings.
Sadly a common story during the war years.... but here we are ! me.. Dick and Pauline reunited after 60 years... life is GOOD!

card block!

Its been so hot and humid today..and I wanted to start putting together some ideas for the sketch challenge.. but my mind is empty!.. so I spent the day having lunch with my daughter and my best friend.. sooo.... maybe tomorrow I will make a start..
