Brothers turn....

Busy ol' time of the year for Birthdays in our Family, August, so, here's another one!

My Brothers card this time.....

The background was created using distress inks and spritzed with cosmic shimmer mica powder then overstamped with brown ink and various stamps. Chipboard stars were painted with inks and aged using krylon pen, they were then added to Prima paper circles..... - Edwin and his pencil were stamped, water coloured and hi-lighted using glossy accents....

The main image on Dad's card was actually a Paperbag studio stamp........ thanks for the queries...

Thanks for looking and the comments, really appreciate it..

Sisterhood 23 of the blogging stampers

I have joined the "Sisterhood 23 of the Blogging Stampers" and I'm really looking forward to getting involved in something new and getting to know my fellow "sisters".

In this post I'm supposed to tell you all about me...so, here goes.....I'm addicted to rubber stamps! I've no idea how many I've got and I have no intention of counting them up either! lol, every single piece of art I've created has a rubber stamp on it somewhere - all, that is apart from one piece where I was challenged to create a piece without! boy, that took my breathe away, something that doesn't happen very often let me tell you!! lolx, I felt quite ill for a while, but, rose to the challenge! I dabble in all forms of crafting, and love it all. I'm self employed, married to Steve - photographer extrodinare, Mum to Sian nearly 18 (just had AS results) and Josh 16 (expecting GCSE results on Thursday!) guess what the stress levels in this house have been of late lolx!! and I have the best behaved, most gorgeous weimaraner in the world called Ty......

Hi All,

I've been having serious problems with my laptop - the result being that I've been "off air"!! lolxx for several days - the worse part of it is that I've lost ALL of my contacts, all of my fav's including my fav craft shops and challenge blog sites - so, if we mail on a regular basis would you please mail me so that I've got your email address - also, if I had you on my msn list please add me to your list again.
