Off On A Tangent Cards

Hi my friends, it's Friday, the end of another week and one that hasn't been very productive because my mojo decided to disappear down the crafting rabbit hole on Monday and refused to be tempted out. So yesterday in an attempt to get back on track, I dived into the backgrounds box containing piles of creative playtime adventures inspired by Tim's 16 weeks of Facebook Live Masterclasses and I can't be the only one who's missing our Saturday night parties over at Tim and Mario's place.
I decided to try and make something out of two of my "didn't go as well as I hoped" attempts at spraying through stencils with Distress Resist Spray over Alcohol Ink Backgrounds, heat embossing and then hosing down with Isopropryl.
and while I was having a delve through my stamps and dies, I came across these two long forgotten "as old as the hills" favourites, French Flight and Joy Framelits (stamps with matching dies). So mixing the old with the new, I created two cards

And just as I was winding down for the day, Happy Mail deliveries arrived and no prizes for guessing that I might just be re-organising my Distress stash this weekend.
And the Speckled Egg Distress Pin is also very happy, now that he has some company thanks to the kindness and generosity of  Tim, my adorable Professor and Mario, the sweetest Master Shipper and BTS man.

Enjoy your weekend, whatever you have planned and I'll see you all on Monday to share my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. You still have time to join in with this week's "Day At The Beach" Challenge with a chance to win a $25 voucher to spend online at Simon Says Stamp.
Hugs Kath xxx
