Summer Flowers.....

Morning peeps hope you are well, what a wonderful week I've had crafting wise, firstly my new stamps arrived from Crafty Individals and they are all now available on the website along with some other must haves like the chipboard perfume gotta get some of those, I collect perfume bottles and my bathroom is quite full of them such a pain to dust though.My other good news was I won over at Teddy Bo this week and got to chose 10 images.....I am so gonna be a busy bee for the next few weeks playing. if you are a new follower to my blog just thought I'd let you know that my crafting is quite eclectic as I love cute, inky, distressed, vintage, you name I'll have a go at

Todays card didnt turn out quite how I wanted it to, I think the embossing brightened up the colours too much for my liking but I thought I'd share it anyway. I have used CI 134 stamps for the four panels which were coloured with Promarkers and then clear embossed (think they would have been better using a Crackle), I used the last bit of my lush silk ribbon for the frame in the to get some more of that as well.The centre bird stamp is CI 220 which after colouring it I rubbed Star dust stickles all over it, the scrim I dyed with glimmer mists. I used a Krylon silver pen to highlight all of the panels.

Yesterday I went shopping and finally got some wallpaper to redecorate my dining room I'll be doing a bit of different paper crafting comes Sunday, well after hubby stripped off the original paper that is.
