Just having fun...

Grabbing the odd half hour to play is a necessity for me....
as is grabbing a bargain, so when I got the chance to
 buy 4 sets of X-cut shadow box dies for under £36 I didn't
even try to resist(normal price £19.99 each)
I find theses sets are so useful as they cut apertures 
and can be used individually as well as to make scenes.
I like to make my own background card using inks on plain paper... 
 cos it's messy...and I love messy :D

 I cut the layers I wanted out of plan black card...
 I only used 3, and made the "sky" around the distant trees wider
 before sticking a bit of the "sky" backing card behind the windows 
to give the effect of reflection(or house lights).
 I also sent for some SO SUZY sentiment stamps last week....
*though postage charges from US made them twice the price*
worth every penny lol
 They even added a sweet freebie "Spring Time Hugs"
*what a lovely thing to do*
I will definitely be buying more...struggled to only choose 3 lol
and arrived in perfect time to have fun with a few challenges.
 Made using 
Tattered Lace dies 
My Paper Stash "Rosie's Delight"
So Suzy sentiment stamp

Enjoy :D XXX


  1. Intricate yumminess (in my favorite colors!).

    1. I think I was thinking of you with regard to colour comb*not the sentiment lol*

  2. If you've got the spade I'll have the dead body soon if OH carries on. ;-)

  3. I love both your cards - really beautiful. I really must get some of those So Suzy stamps - I think she was doing free international postage over Easter weekend but I couldn't get my act together and decide which to buy, I want them all!
