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

On The Beach.

On my daily visits to Free Digital Stamps i found this lovely summery image from The Stamping Boutique. It's perfect for this weeks challenge at I Love Promarkers which is to make a card inspired by a song title. I chose Chris Rea's  "On the Beach".
The seahorse backing paper is from a huge stack by K & Company. I cut out the turquoise mats with Fiskars deckle scissors.  I added the sentiment in "Thread Fun" font before i printed the image. I've got a thing about making daisies at the moment. I coloured some card candy with promarkers for the centres.
A bit of stickles for the sand and we're done.
It's Chester races this week so it should be quite busy in work. I went into town yesterday and i couldn't believe some of the sights. It gets worse each year. The women are getting fatter and their dresses are getting smaller. And as for the make up and hair extensions you'd swear they were going to a fancy dress do. Anyone living in a race town will know exactly what i mean.

Target weight 9st 2lb.  Today''s weight 9st 4lb. Not bad as i was 9st 7lb on Tuesday morning...........
