Welcome to my blog. I hope you find plenty of inspiration here. Nothing too fancy, no great skills required, just lots of cards, gifts and perhaps the odd bit of shopping.

My blog contains lots of links to freebies. Without sounding like "mother" can I ask you to leave a kind comment to the generous givers of such fabulous artwork. I know of at least a couple of artists who are feeling a bit unloved at the moment. Thanks. X

Retirement.

No not mine, not for a long time yet. My bad luck story started when i was 15 and in my last year of school. The term had hardly started when the leaving age went up to 16 with immediate effect. What a bummer!! Out of all the kids in my year the only one's who didn't rebel were the top swots. The rest of us learned nothing,this is probably why i've got my high flying job in the paper shop! The same thing is likely to happen with my retirement, i'll be shuffling down to the post office to be told sorry luv you've got to wait till next year now. This card is for nobody in particular,i'll see if i can sell it at work.

The stamp is from the Clare Curd Stamping for him set. The papers are from an old kit (mostly naff) from C&C a few years ago. There is a sheet of paper and a matching vellum which i've torn and fixed on top with brads. I started colouring with my promarkers but realised i'd stamped this a while back on non coated card with stazon ink so i had to go back to my watercolour pencils as i'd already matted it up.

 Well as you read this i'll be on my coach to who knows where. I've scheduled another post for tomorrow,thanks for visiting. Di.xx

  4. Brilliant card Di. Like you I think I'll be shuffling to the paper shop to be told the same. I think it will probably go the same way with the bus pass too. Eileen xx
