Show and Tell 2 - Photopolymer Stamps


What miserable weather today after the glorious sunshine yesterday! Yesterday I was running jogging in the Race for Life, and although running in the rain isn't a big deal it's much nicer when the sun's shining, so we were very lucky. It was great to join in such a worthwhile event, and it was also fab to see so many young people running makes you believe that one day, with all the huge support and money raised for research into cancer, there will eventually be a cure. Here's hoping.

So to the card for today. I've used one of the Photopolymer stamp sets which you can currently receive free with any order over 60 pounds. This offer only runs until 31st May, so please do pop over to my online shop and check out the other sets available.

Have a fab week.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Show and Tell 2, Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Lazy Sunday

Wow, what an absolutely glorious day it's been today. I've spent the afternoon sat down by a small stream watching cricket on the green and enjoying a fabulous picnic. A perfect lazy Sunday afternoon :-)
This week I have another scrapbook page for you, and I've used the lovely Dictionary stamp, which gives such a great image every time. I think this might be my favourite stamp at the moment. I've used sponge daubers to remove some of the ink from the stamp to create a softer look around the edge before actually stamping it. I could have perhaps done it even more but am quite happy with the result. The picture is my son and his dad on a visit to Paultons Park one rainy afternoon...though that didn't dampen his enthusiasm.
I don't remember too much about this particular day but I was showing my son some of the photos and he remembers it really clearly, even though it was when he was 3!
I can't decide on a title for this one so will have to put my thinking cap on and come up with something before I pop it in my album as finished.

Hope the fabulous weather lasts for the Bank Holiday next weekend - fingers crossed!
Have a lovely week.
Thanks for visiting

Tape It Invitation

Hello, long time no post eh! Thanks for continuing to pop by during my absence. My laptop is fixed now, so with any luck I'll get back to some more frequent posts...that's the intention anyway ;-)

Today is something really simple and straightforward and is very similar to something I saw whilst on Pinterest a while can I find the original, no sign of it anywhere, I mean how difficult would it have been to just pin it at the time. There's a lesson there but I can guarantee I won't learn it straight away! Thanks anyway to the original designer for the inspiration.

Supplies used:
Stamps - Tape It, Occasions Alphabet
Framelits - Word Bubbles
Colours - Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
