Hi Everyone
Thanks for stopping by. Visit Julia over at the Stamping Ground to join in the fun.
Well..... no post last week as we were away in sunny Somerset visiting friends. We went to Cheddar Gorge on Saturday and we managed to have lunch outside, sheltered from the wind and here's a picture to prove it!

On my workdesk this week is my lovely new stash that I bought from our trip to Ally Pally this weekend!  Bankcrupt but HAPPY!
A variety of things including some new Lavinia stamps. I stood for ages watching Tracey doing her demos and she made it look so easy. Here's my effort when I got home.... needs a bit of practise I think!
I also thought it was time I made a little tag book to record the colours of my ever growing collection of Distress inks.
How organised is that!
I have been busy in my Art journal using my new Dylusions inks and I must admit I was a bit taken aback at how bright they are! Once I had sprayed on the page I was a bit baffled as to what to do next! So I got a stencil out and re sprayed with water, then started to re paint. Not finished but pretty.
Well.... thats all for this week. I have things to finish and new things to try so I am off.  If you went to Ally Pally at the weekend I hope you had a good day and are having a great inky, messy time with all your new purchases!
Have a good week x
