I Want To Be........A Tree!!!

Sorry that this is yet another Isopropyl background but I am doing quite a few different samples for putting around the shop so this is what I am working with at the moment.
The tree stamp is from Kanban.
The swirl is hand drawn and then gone over with yellow stickles.
I did a class today with this technique and it was absolutely fabulous. We had such fun.

Came home with my bag of Tim goodies. The dies are just wonderful. I had five Bigz including the flowers and the flourishes. Then I had a couple of the 'On The Edge' dies and a Vintage Market alphabet. Can't wait to get time to play with them now.
We had another delivery today of the most gorgeous narrow cotton lace in colours with matching grosgrain ribbon. The colours are divine and I have my eye on some beautiful red and green for adding to Christmas cards.

Tomorrow is mucking out day as I have the house to myself for a good while. DD will be in bed and hubby will be out.........bliss. I do like having the house to myself as I get ten times more jobs done than when they are all under my feet.

Tonight I am treating myself to a couple of hours in front of the goggle box to watch some more episodes of Private Practice. I have to wait until hubby has gone to bed as he is not too keen on it.

Night night.
Thanks for dropping by.


  1. Another lovely card Sheila. Those backgrounds are gorgeous and so effective. I must have a go again soon. There are just not enough hours in the days for all the things I want to play with.
