Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Morning folks....yes I'm back again...managed to squeeze in a little playtime yesterday....and it's time for another birthstone of the month challenge over at Daring Cardmakers.......the birthstone for March is....

AQUAMARINE





Claudine Hellmuth: Sticky Back Canvas
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad.....Broken China
Hero Arts: Old Letter Writing
Hero Arts: Stripes Pattern
Penny Black: Whispers
Nestabilities: Big Scalloped Square
Ribbon: American Crafts
Bead Caps & Pearls: Hobby House
Sentiment: Stampin Up..Vintage Labels


It's confession time folks....I am so guilty of buying stuff and stashing it away.....and the naughty bit forgetting all about it.....so I thought I would use some of Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky Back Canvas I bought when she was on QVC's Craft Day and I love it ....so easy to stamp on....works great with Tim's Distress Inks and I even managed to heat emboss on it......it gives great texture to your cards and I will certainly not be forgetting about it for very long....and those gorgeous bead caps I got from Hobby House at the SECC...aren't they just so delicious......well it's onwards and upwards as they say with the decorating.....off to emulsion the roof....not my favourite job....it's that vertically challenged thing again.....I do have the extension pole but still find it a big chore....and my new look....hair speckled with white...who knows I may start a trend....but once it's done...it's done....another job ticked off the list of things to do.....and who knows I may soon be back sleeping in the bedroom.....at the moment my bed is currently plonked in the middle of the front room and I am living out of the proverbial suitcase.....nightmare having to hunt down clean knickers every morning.
Catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxx
