A-Maiz-ing



August bank holiday, we went to the Maize Maze just outside Felbrigg. It was a hot day, kids kerpooped. Spent a good few hours and we didn't get lost in the maze! I did take a few more photos which I will get printed off and put on to some 12x12 at some point!

Glaze n Glitter


I found time to make another card today, my lovely 16 year old has just had the results of her GCSEs and as she has done so well I have made a card, although even if she hadn't done so well she would have got one! 'Way to Go' is cut from the Cricut (George) and glazed then sprinkled with glitter. Papers are from a paper stack I have, I think it is the teens which is quite apt. The flowers are stamped and coloured with water colour pencils and watercolour crayons.

Cutting out

No pics to show just yet but well I have been cutting out and decoupaging with my silicone glue! Do you know it is really quite therapeutic but now I find that I have to locate the tube of glue so I can replenish my syringe!

I have been reshelving my place on eBay, clearing out some stuff including some Hampton Art Stamps.

For now, I am feeling quite kerpooped, time to put some Bepanthen on my newest acquisition and hit the sack before I fall down.

Sunday fun

I managed to get some quiet time today to have a play. Two cards today, the first one here is one that I thought would do for a Christmas card. Stamped trees and embossed it with white embossing powder. I think the paper is from Making Memories, the red mat is the paper's back!


Next I finally got around to using my rooster stamp which comes from stamps happy. Coloured using the SU watercolour crayons and blender pen. I also glazed the rooster to add a bit of gloss to him. Paper from what I have lurking around. The cardstock base for the cards is the SU A4 card simply folded over.



I might play some more later but as it is, I am too warm to do anything than sit around and read/watch the chickens dust bathe.

Birthday

Sometimes when I go through the mounds of paper I have accumulated I find some and think, hmmmm. I had used it at a crop that I do in Briston and had some offcuts and well they were just what I needed.

And, then I find the stamp that just has to be used, my Jill Penney Gooseneck. Paper by the way is Anna Griffin. Stamp coloured in using promarkers and watercolour pencils. The 'Birthday' I cut out using my Cricut - using SCAL and then I just added some lines to it. The card was made for my niece who is 17 today (no idea where the time has gone!).

whoopppeee

Four boxes of Ikea stuff are ready to be unpacked although first things first. Off to Fakenham to visit 4skin to check out a drawing... and some bonjela as Genny has a tooth coming and it is giving her grief, then home and to the PO to get some eBay goodies off and then, boxes here we come!

In between, something I made on Thursday.... Hero Arts and promarkers and some water colour pencils, the paper is from 7gypsies - I wondered what I had done with *that* 6x6 paper pad!!!
