This stamp evokes lovely memories of my childhood. I was an avid reader and always liked Mabel Lucie Attwell's illustrations. I am entering this at the last minute as per usual in The Vintage Stamping Challenge which finishes tom. and the eclectic paperie monochrome challenge which ends on the 4 July.
In a bit of a rush. Only had all month to do it. Lovely son has got me a ticket to see Bruce Springstein in London tom. which has made up for the fact that was unable to secure a place on Tim's class in Coventry in Aug. Was on the phone from 8:30 until 10:30 and then gave up trying to get through. Fellow bloggers Tim's new challenge will be on his blog on Mon. make sure you get over there and have a look.

Hi everbody. It's that time of the week to hop on over to Julia's stamping blog and sneek a peek at other bloggers workspaces. As you can see mine has very little space left. Having a great time making envelopes with the new WeR memories envelope punchboard which arrived Mon.I followed 'Gentleman Jim the Crafters' You tube video to make the envelope book in just over an hour. Listening to him I some how got onto Laura Denison Designs and am now half way through making a large Tag box out of a brown paper bag and Graphic 45 papers. No guesses as to what people will be getting for Christmas. LOL !!! Was highly delighted to be classed as Highly Desirable over at the Vintage Stamping Challenge.

Hi, finally managed to take a photo and get it into the computer in time to take part in Julia's Stamping Blog. Get yourself over there to have a peek into other crafters workspaces. I have been doing a lot lately with my Cricut expression and mini Cricut . I have been making wedding invites and a lovely picture of 'Round and Round The Garden' for my granddaughters first birthday ( her favourite game at the moment guaranteed to produce peals of laughter). Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo but will get my daughter to remedy that. Just about to do some stamping for card making (my first love).

This is my entry for 'The Altered Spoon Challenge' over on Eclectic Paperie. The petals are made from melted plastic spoons, coloured with adirondack inks and highlighted with stickles. The leaves were hand cut using shaped scissors. I used a ball tool to emboss the veins and highlighted them with Tim Holtz distress ink. There is a good instruction guide on You tube outlining the methodology and safety precautions.
