mmmmm strawberries

One good thing to come from all this rain are these beauties

So far I have picked 20 strawberries from our patch and as my son and I are the only ones that eat them, and he is abroad at the moment, I have had them all to myself tonight.

That is what summer is all about - yes?

Background For Journal Pages

I've been messing around with spray inks and masks again, tee hee what fun.

I used two Tando masks, one of leaves and another one flowers. I then went a bit crazy with the inks some from Sticky Fingers which I am running out of and some by Dylusions which give the page a great shimmer.

I'm not sure whether to cover with an image or what to write as yet but just wanted to show you the background.

This morning I have been going a bit mad with my acrylic dabbers. They have got all gunged up inside and are running out so adding water is not really working but that is fine as I am having a wonderful time poking the paint out with a stick and then applying it to the paper using an old RAC membership card! hahaha.

That one I will photograph once the paint has dried.

Speedy Sunday Sentiment Scrap

Well last minute Minnie strikes again ...... I needed four yes four cards for this afternoon so sat at my craft desk and made these.Yesterday I found some old articles that I had torn out of craft magazines, Quick and Crafty, Crafts Beautiful and Craft Stamper and these gave me the inspiration to make these birthday cards.

Various equipment and stash used including a new cog mask from Tando, a bird stamp from Basic Grey, Rub-ons from Cosmo Cricket, beads from Creative Beadcraft in Beak Street and the linen type fabric was from John Lewis.

I also tied another bow, getting used to doing them now.

Last day of my holidays today ..... back to work tomorrow so enjoy the rest of your sunday. x

Frivilous Friday Fanciful Fruits (of my labour)

A little bit of alliteration there haha. As it is the last day of my holiday I thought I would share what I have been up to.

Most of the week the house has been upside down as my daughter has had new laminate flooring laid in her bedroom. Meaning that all her possessions were all over the house. Couldn't do the ironing (shame tee hee) as the wardrobes were groaning with all her stuff.

So now the flooring is complete and looks lovely and the wardrobe, bed and desk have been put back in their positions and now it is up to her to sort out where all her things go. Don't go thinking I put the floor down, oh no we got a little man in :)

Next is the DCM challenge from two weeks ago ...... yes I know there is one due out today and been a new one last week but as I have said before I am a sloooooow crafter lol. This challenge was to use the lyrics from Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars"( I hate the Leona Lewis version) anyway ...... I used the line "is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see" and used a free stamp from Craft Stamper some months back.

Also this week I have been trying to use up scraps of paper from my desk and made this A6 card and a button.
I then made this one using a stamp from My Cute Stamp, Sweet Kawaii.

When I uploaded these photos from my camera I found this one too! It made me laugh out loud ..... don't you just love kids?
Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend
