It is surprising what a change of roles at work and the re-emergance of family can do for your Mojo.   Had intended to tidy the garden but rain stopped work.  So I played.

This is a Sweet Poppy stencil used to emboss a white post card.   Inkylicious dusters and Adirondack dye based inks worked over the embossed area to bring out the image.  A5 card stamped with a little flourish and sentiment.    Well Less is More set a challenge this week to use a stencil, Friday Mashup also requested that we use a stencil.

A postcard, Wish you were Here, inspired by some fabulous holiday snaps on FB recently.    The stamp is an old Stamping' up one, love it because you can set it against any background you want.  For the next 2 weeks A Gem of a Challenge want Summertime.

A tangle started Friday evening and then coloured today.     Does not represent anything, does not mean anything, just some lines on a page.    Inkspirational have a word prompt this fortnight - Wild does this qualify?

A ladder weave necklace made with red and blue dyed quartz and cream quartzite.    Very comfortable to wear.

So much better than chopping up a blown over ivy hedge don't you think.   Happy Solstice.


  1. Splendid makes from you - love your LIM entry


  2. Woo hoo ... lovely makes glad you are chillin' - mmmm... went to dentist for re-filling and the tangle looks like a tooth - guess my fear of dentistry is superficial !!! Have a lovely sunday xx

    1. So sorry Carol that my little doodle caused you to relive the visit to the dentist, any similarity to your tooth is purely incidental.
