Tanda Teaser-Yeee Haa!!!

This week it is Wendy's turn to set the challenge over at TandaStamps and here is the card I have made for it.
The image I've used was black and white but I changed it to sepia in my picture programme.
Papers are from the Dovecraft Men's Collection. Sizzix stars cut from chipboard, covered with paper then distressed and inked. I then added a star cut from the paper and held it all together with a brad.
You're the Best stamp is Melissa Frances.
Thanks for a fab challenge Wendy.
I haven't done a card for the DCM Little Extra yet as it is a template and I don't do so well with templates I'm afraid. I will have a go but don't hold your breath for the!!!

Had a lovely peaceful day today.......well apart from DD having a hacking cough with this cold she has. Couldn't feel guilty about not going out to tidy the garden as it has been thrashing it down with rain all day just about.
I have work tomorrow and then four whole days at home and I'm hoping to make a start on painting up in what will eventually be my long as I don't have to move any of DS's junk to get to the walls. He has made a start on tidying up there.......he kicked a pile of washing down from his room to the!!! DD sorted it all out and I think she just gave up counting after fifty of the tshirts that needed washing.
DH doesn't know it yet but he will be out in the garden if it's fine as all of the lawn edges need recutting and then I want him to edge the borders with log roll or something to try and keep them tidy. I've also decided I want some lighting in the garden for when we have BBQ's so he is going to be a busy boy.
Just need to find a job for dog!!!

Had a go at making a watermark last night and failed miserably. I thought I would be able to work it out after watching a video of how to do it Photoshop but no it didn't work. I may have to commision someone to make me one.

Well I am off to the Land Of Nod now..........night night
Thanks for dropping by.
