This has been a wonderful relaxing Sunday. Seem to have got loads done (just the ironing left can watch the last Boston Legal while doing that.)

Got off to a cracking start, had to get this card out of my head before anything else. Have been itching to do a red card for weeks now, the stamp is from Clarity Stamps, an Ally Pally purchase last week-end. the back ground paper is Basic Gray dont ask which set thats far to complicated. The image topper has been given a clear glaze just love the way that brings out the colours the image has been filled in with.

Then it was into the garden to cut the green stuff, well cut the heads off the dandilions! & play with the Imps. Izzy has not made his way onto the blog yet so please allow me to intorduce him now. He is about 6 weeks older than M&P and came from the Vets as a stray he also thinks he is the only cat here and M&P are toys.

It was beautiful out doors today sunny and warm, had a little walk can feel my face tingling so maybe caught a bit of sun. After the last two years we so deserve some good weather.

More cards still rolling around in my head, no challanges or teasers or compertitions or themes just ideas. Lots of those from seeing everyone elses lovely work over the years they inspire everything on here.

The Humming bird stamp is such a pretty stamp but not one for embossing or colouring. Have not done black and white for a while, this was inspired by a picture i saw while out shopping yesterday & this morning I remembered the 'lace' peel off. Have to work on the corners! the white ink is cotton white which works well on black shrink as well. the downside with that stuff it is a devil to get off your stamps.

And finally time to use some of the shaving foam background that i made a couple of weeks ago, except its not background but the base for another Clarity stamp. This stamp has been in the collection for a while just not got round to useing it before! This was going to be Yellow and Purple a combination that is crying out to be used but the embossing powder is Do Crafts Blue Glass and how i wish they had made red glass green glass yellow glass etc. The way the shavong foam paper has soaked some of it in makes an interesting effect guess its to do with the different inks and colours the foam was dyed with. Blue collagated card and a splash of red just finish it off.

Well thats it another week-end winds down. time for a quick blog walk then the dreaded ironing. Take care & have fun.

  4. Hey Zoe, love your cards and Izzy is so pretty, I use to have a cat very similar to Izzy, his name was Barney. He had a black spot on the tip of his nose.
