My last post was on 19 June just one day before going on holiday for 2 weeks in Brittany. I didn't like to advertise the fact that we were not to be at home. Since then I have been fairly busy with wedding preparations - the early stages of organisation - what, where, when & how etc. Back in my post on 31 May I did mention that my partner Bob & I were going to tie the knot next year.
Initial work has now been completed & from now on it is a case of gradually working on flower arrangements, cake & other things. The save The Date has already gone out & the basis of the Invitations has been started. So things are underway.
Along with this I have three rubber stamping clubs that I run & there is work to do for them, plus I run a blog for them - so I do tend to write daily on that.
Now that I feel on top of all this organisation a little more I thought it was time to get back to this blog.
A couple of days ago I joined Facebook group for digital scrap booking - which is another interest of mine - so I thought I would also start sharing those pages with you. But first some stamping that I have managed to do recently.
I am very much a Clean & Simple style stamper - although if it calls for it I can do more on a card.
I also really like using inks to just lift the whiteness of cards - here I used Victorian Velvet Distress Ink sponged down the side of the card. The long-stem rose is a stamp from Dimension Stamps which I stamped in black archival ink & coloured with Promarkers. I then cut the rose out leaving a narrow white border around & attached it with thin 3-d pads. The greeting is from a freebie set on a magazine.
So - I am back. Hope this post wasn't too long.
