IM BACK


Hi all you lovely crafty bloggers. I haven't been blogging for a little while as I have been down the South visiting all my lovely relatives and oh do I have some adorable great nephews and nieces.x
After only being  home a few days I then had some visitors of my own so I am chasing my tail at the moment trying to play catch up and the heat has slowed me down such a lot. I am not complaining though as after 8 months of cold and rain etc it is very welcome even though it has come with a vengeance. hope you all enjoy it but please be sensible and don't sit in it for too long.
I thought to start with I would share with you another sample I did for the last splodge away show. This one was a bit of fun and very simple to make. I simply placed the mask over some card and coloured in the splodges with different brightly coloured distress inks. The letters were stamped with the Dylusions alphabet and then embossed and cut out. I edged the cards with a lit bit of weathered wood just to take the starkness off and then mounted onto black card and put some black pearl marker faux brads in each corner.  I am off out tonight with my best buddies who I went to France with for a meal and catch up and then tomorrow night its a meal with my hubby of 45 years as its our Anniversary so hopefully by next week it will be back to normal and I can catch up on my crafting duties. While I was away I did manage ( suprise suprise) to fit in a visit to a few craft shops. Snazzys in Swindon was my first stop and then later on I visited the Craft Barns new premises. wow so much space. have to admit though that I did like the quirkiness of their old premises. The result is I have some nice new stamps that I need to play with and I am getting withdrawal symptoms.
Can I just say again a great big THANK YOU to all the visitors to my blog and an extra big thanks to those that take the time to comment. It is so so much appreciated.

See you soon
Happy Crafting
Kayx
