Green Fingers

With the Bank Holiday yesterday and the sun shining we thought we would try and bring some order to the flower beds and vegetable patch. The little seeds are doing really well in the nursery - apart from when the dog decides to help dig. We couldn't believe the size of the hole we found she had dug at the back of one of the beds!! So my challenge this week is to scrap a page with a the green fingered dog as the centre of attention.

The card was made using some cricut flowers and scrolls from Accent Essentials cartridge with some of those fine detailed birds from the new Graphicus stamp sets.

If you look carefully at the photograph you will see that the card is laid on top of one of the papers designed by my artistic friend Lesley I believe it is available as a free download so pop over and take a peek!

I'll leave you with a scene from a recent trip to Barbados

- it's a take on a version of a House Boat

Raspberry Ripple

Sorry but it's not an ice-cream recipe but the name given to the demonstration by Bramwells. They have put together a selection of K & Co papers with a range of stamps from Inkadinkado. Here are a small selection of samples.

Enjoy your day

18 Days, 18 Time Zones and a Grand Masquerade Ball

Yes that's what Mike and I have been up to over the past few weeks. We spent part of the time in the Caribbean, followed by 6 days crossing the Atlantic which for me was the most exciting part. We sailed away surrounded by glassy blue seas, watched flying fish, whales and dolphins and saw blank beauty - sea and sky. We rounded our time off sailing in the Med. I did spend some time working - honest!
There was plenty of inspiration and I found myself enjoying writing. I'm hoping to include some of those musings in a canvas I've got planned. I was also totally transfixed by the work of Gaudi. After spending time with a guy in Barcelona who was a Gaudi groupee I found my brain ticking over about the genius of the man- staggering - I came home with scrap pages laid out in my mind with hints of Gaudi thrown in. All I need now is some time to get lost in my own thoughts!!!
I shall leave you with a sample I made recently ... stamps are available from Graphicus
