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

More Summertime Fun.

I was playing around with My Craft Studio, printing some greetings onto card bases when i decided to have a go at printing a a background.I found a square design by Summer Driggs and stretched it a bit into a rectangle and positioned it above the greeting. I had to print it onto scrap paper a few times to get it in the right place but here's the card.
I punched 2 holes for the ribbon and the image is Penny Black. There is a link to the printable greeting on my post from Sunday.
I coloured the spots again with my promarkers.

Update on our syndicate win on the Irish Lottery.................... We have 2 playcards........The counter assistant had put the same (non winning) playcard through the machine  twice so the other one wasn't issued and we ended up with 2 identical tickets.  The bloke who payed them in didn't think to check them so no flamin' money !!! I got over my rant and forgave. I bet he'll be triple checking in future. It's a pity she hadn't put the other one through twice,lol.  I've seen it happen in our shop, if someone has more the one playcard, i'll put them through one at a time and then put each one aside while doing the next but a couple of girls have them all in their hand like shuffling a pack of cards. I always tell the customer to check their tickets as i would be gutted if this happened to one of them.
