Hi folks, Back aagin today with another card for Stampotique. This week the lovely talented Corrie challenged us............... Happy
Wednesday everybody. My first love in crafting is paint. So, today I
would like you all to use paint in your background. Doesn't matter what
paint or how you apply it, just have fun!
Painting is fun and I had a very messy afternoon
I painted my background with an enormous paintbrush sploshing freely :D
This pic, in the weak winter sunshine, shows the irridescence of the Pebeo paints especially on the grass and sky they positively glow :D The sentiment is topped by black ribbon from inside jumpers, waste not, want not LOL
E.E. Cummings said "The most wasted of all days is one without
laughter." Puns and word play always make me smile. Really good puns
make me laugh. Create a project that makes YOU smile.
Relaxin's blanket is just about to be pinched byGhostie Hope you like, it makes me smile :D Thank you for dropping by, hugs Gay xx I used Crafter's workshop stencil, mini city grid and my new flourescent oil pastels, yum, yum !!
What a lucky lady I am, Hello my lovely friends, yup I'm back from my break. Exhausted, spoiled and jet lagged but a happy crafter resides here tonight!
Guess who I met on my hols?
Okay, yes, I actually shook the hand of Emerson Quillin, perhaps you may not have encountered this talented chap before but I have been a fan of his humour and expertly drawn images for many years now. I was like a giddy groupy and he was totally underwhelmed, understandable really I mean, how could he have ever heard of little ol 'mustavcoffee'?? Or even Gay from the UK?? LOL
He really didn't know what to make of this mad woman from the UK but was happy to sell me some of his stamps at a bargain price, YES !!! What a lucky chap, fancy living on that fabulous Island!
This is his studio and shop, look palm trees people :D
Click on his name for the link to his website where you will find all sorts of fun stuff!!!! HERE is a link of a card that I made with on of his stamps, a card for my lovely friend and crafty buddy Darnell
Then to top it off as Hubby and I were on our way back to Blighty, we took a little detour and visited Whim So Doodle in St Petersburg, WOW I could happily spend a day or two going through this wonderful store! They were very kind and welcoming :D
So, many dollars lighter I arrived home early this morning, itching to get crafting again.
Thank you for your patience my friends, whilst I pull myself together, hugs to you all, Gay x
