Good morning one and all. Hope all is good with you or if not, I send you best wishes and positive thoughts.
On that note, I'm sad to hear that our lovely Maureen has broken her hip. So sorry you poor lady. I haven't ascertained if alcohol, Lycra or cycling was involved but send warm wishes for a speedy recovery.
Now, I'm continuing with John's samples. Thank you for your kind comments on them. This one got a fair bit of air time and seemed popular with the presenters. Totally out of character for me as I don't normally do grungy but I just saw this in my minds eye when I first saw this fab stamp.
Cream, brown and taupe card
John Lockwood Horticultural Definition stamp
MDF shapes from Ebay
Rich Cocoa Dew Drop Memento ink
Vintage Photo Distress ink
Hougie for scoring
I roughed up the edges of the stamped panel with some scissors but not too much as I like neat grunge lol!!!
I added some finger prints to give it that dirty fingers from gardening look.
Its been lovely to see some new names commenting and I thank you for your visits.
Elaine, Mr D actually got 3 of the Fondant Fancies . . . . . . the chocolate ones as I don't like chocolate flavoured stuff. Its always Russian Roulette with a packet as to how many of each you get but there was a special Easter box of all lemon (my favourites) but I would have eaten them all. Still sending you prayers and good vibes.
Littlelamb, hope your back is feeling better now.
Wendy, the framed one was actually scraper foil/board rather than gilding flakes.
Jackie, bit more excitement at the GP this week. I felt for Valtteri too but at least Lewis didn't win lol!!! Looking to seeing Jenson Baby again.
Patricia, thanks for letting me know about Maureen. Such as shame she will miss your meet up.
Karen, you try whatever gives you inspiration chuck. Your personalised cards always look individual.
Well, that's me for now. Enjoy John's glitter shows. I'm hoping to get out for lunch with Davey and Nesta. Davey's off to Japan next week. He's like Judith Chalmers with a hairy chest (although I do hear she waxes, lol!!!)
PS. . . . . . Final reminder for The Paddle Prize here. Mr D will be performing the draw at 7pm tonight so don't forget to click follow and leave a comment on my anniversary blog post before 7pm.
The winner will be announced on my next post.
