Sunday Stamper - Red and Blue

Happy Thursday all hope your having a good one, I am, having a crafty day off work, and this is one of my inky creations today. This first time I have had a go with doing a reflection on my brayer and if I say so myself am quite pleased with the result, although there is a red scratchy bit in the sky, but it wouldn't be hand made if it were perfick now, would it!

There's still time left to enter the Sunday Stampers theme this week take a look over at Hel's blog, I am the first to admit to submitting an entry late on the odd occasion.

Have been asked to make 8 thank you cards, all for men too, it's one of those times you wish you hadn't been asked, know what I mean. LOL

Apologies to Julia too, took my pic on Tuesday evening for WOYWW, but came home from work yesterday, ate, slumped on the sofa and fell asleep, oops, am sorry ladies. Maybe I'll stick the pic on my blog anyways.

The Artistic Stamper challenge - Rainbow

Over at the Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog the challenge is rainbows, so this is what I have been playing with and hope it's cuts the mustard as there are some fabulous pieces, also Jennie is celebrating her blogaversary and is giving away some fab candy so what ya waiting for get over there now, he, he, he.
I used the only big n juicy I have which is hydrangea and on the left hand page I brayered onto some art card (note to self, haven't yet cleaned the brayer), spritzed with water and dried with my heat gun. On the right hand page I stamped the image and used my waterbrush to move the colour around, the stamps I used are Lost Coast Designs (I think!), Stampers Anonymous, Basic Gray and the Artistic Stamper, oh and the top was from a new wrought iron gate stamp I have from Hero Arts.

WOYW - Thursday

Ooops, sorry, but I was not feeling very well when I came home from work yesterday, so never got to post, but this is my desk as I was playing on Tuesday evening. New stamps from Darkroom Door, do I not like cutting out and mounting, I have lots of rubber sheets with holes cut out of them and the rest waiting to be done, and must confess to having untouched ones too but, SSSSShhhhh, don't tell OH.
Hope you all had a lovely Wednesday and have to apologise as managed to get round a number of blogs last week but then started having errors when trying to leave comments, so gave up trying to leave any, but that's the way it goes. I will deffo be at the bottom of Julia's Mr Linky this week LOL.
Ta Ta for now peeps.

Afternoon WOYWWer's, thought I would be earlier today, been off work, but it so glorious, did my cleaning, showered and have sat in the garden and brushed the dog, OH is oiling the love seat and DD is putting the final touches to her art project book before going back to school tomorrow.

We went to Scarborough yesterday on the Yorkshire coast and still wish I was there, had a fab day, we were supposed to be decorating the bathroom but apart from taking off the mirror tiles, we haven't done a thing, but fear not I'm sure there will be plenty of rainy weekends when we can tackle it, have to make the most of the sunshine don't we, who am I trying to convince, I wonder LOL.

Well back to my desk, ummm, not changed in the last few days, have finally got a couple of shelves up in my craft room, (still need some more, but it's a start), as you can see below, some folks have some fab cupboards and storage, but me been a bit tight didn't want to spend loads on storage, would rather spend it on stash. So me and OH did a bit of pilfering at Tesco's, as the cardboard display boxes which they have all the kids back to school stuff in are really sturdy, you can see on my window sill the before, and on my desk is one I am in the process of covering with paper and will be used to put A4 card and paper in, emptying one of my drawers to fill with more stash.

Enough of my wittering, hop over to Julia's blog and see what everyone else has been up to this week and hope the sun is shining where you are too.
