oh that Stampbord is good stuff!!!

Oh dear, this stamp is beautiful! actually she has a similar look to my sister-in Law Jenny
This is a Stampsmith Stamp 'Serena 2' from
I've used her before but this time I stamped her onto 'Stampbord' first time I've ever used it,
It's Brilliant Stuff it took the photo stamp Perfectly!
I also used my Stamp-it 'butterfly' stamp from the Rachel Greig Plate,
I stamped it onto vellum and only attached it in the centre
(inspired by my fellow DT member Sephi, I love how she does this)
and then glued some crystals into the centre.
All those scrummy papers are from TSQ aswell

this photo shows off the dimension the Stampbord gives to the projects.

Duck on over to TSQ's Gallery, it's chocka block with lots of wonderful new inspiration

I've had some blog friends email and ask where I've's school holidays here at the moment, and Andrew has annual leave, we haven't gone away this year as we are renovating our kitchen..picy's coming soon, it's looking lovely, we have the tiler finally coming tomorrow, and then the flooring going down soon, and we ordered the blinds today, our 30 something year old home is really having a lovely facelift.

Anyway just wanted to say thankyou to you all for stopping by my blog, it warms my heart to know people like to see what I make, you are all so generous with your lovely comments!
