A PLACE WHERE CHAOS OFTEN PREVAILS!

Penny Black & Stamp Something in one.


Finally I have managed to make it back and it has been so long that I wondered if I could actually remember how to work good old Mr Blogger...
It's been a busy old week here as it was my late brothers birthday on Wednesday & on the same day my mums' husband was told by the hospital that they have finally found his prostrate cancer. It has been hiding well away from everyone for approx 5 years now & although all tests showed it was there, they could never actually find it... Good news being it does not appear to be life threatning so fingers crossed he stays in relatively good health.
In addition to that I have been working on a rather large Christning order & doing some prep work for a demo I have on next Saturday. Oh yeah, it's been all go here.
Alas, this morning, I have suffered enough of the challenge withdrawl symptoms so have taken time out to have a little play for myself & how happy I was when I checked the Penny Black & Stamp Something challenges because as soon as I did I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
Here I inked the edges of some white card, then took some yellow card, again inking the edges & using Colorbox inks to stamp my swirls as a border & attached to the white base card. In the centre I placed some green card and on top of that my stamped image. The image has been water coloured using Sakura Stardust. To finish off I used a Fiskars pop up punch to create some pink flowers & a Fiskars hole punch for the green centres.

Hope you are all having a fabulous time & enjoying this beautiful sunshine.
Happy crafting
