  5. Well that just brightened my morning! Love You Tube Tuesday and what a smashing way to change the tree stamp. My front garden has 3 apple trees that are perfectly described in Keats' poem as their poor branches bend with their heavy load of ripening apples. Wouldn't put a good luck hamock between them though as you'd have a raspberry patch sticking in your derriere!! Enjoy your day and here's hoping that you're continuing to feel well. Xx

  6. Hello Barb, what a fabby idea, I have to convince Hubs that I need the full set of re-inkers, but am working on it. Great video showing the steps, and using a silhouette stamp. Hope you are feeling loads better. Bx

  12. Great tutorial Barbara, and well done Maria for coming up with such a fantastic idea! I still have some old big and juicy pads, but they are on their last legs now, so this will be a great alternative!! Thanks for sharing, Susan x

  13. Hi Barb,
    Pleased that you seem to be better now. Love the video - very informative. I think this idea is so clever so well done Maria. Well done to you too Barb for bringing it to us mere mortals. Have quite a few of your silhouette stamps so will have to try this - need the felt and the reinkers first though!! Love Alison xxx

  14. Hi Barbara, this is fabulous! I need some of these re inkers.... Isn't it strange that no matter how much stash we all acquire, there will always be more things we NEED! Thanks for a fantastic blog every day. It's the first thing I look at when I get home from work. Some sanity is always needed! X

  15. Hi Barbara,
    I saw your step-by-step description about making your own stamp pad before and I was very interested in. But to see it in your video is much better. By the way can you tell me if it works with the "inkabilities" as well?.
    Thanks a lot.

  19. Hi Barbara thank you for sharing this technique it looks amazing on that tree and yes I can see it working with some of my other stamps - I must have a play with some of the inks I've got. Hope you are feeling better , it's good to have YouTube Tuesday back ( hope Jim has had a great holiday too!). Returned from holiday today and my prize voucher was waiting for me with the lovely card. Thank you. I will spend some time over the next few days looking at the website to treat myself in between putting the washing machine on and hanging the washing out! Have some holiday money left to spend - bought our daughter a set of bagpipes to learn to play!!! Have earplugs to hand but so far have all just been falling about with laughter at the noises she has got out of them and the colour she is turning with the blowing! Have a great evening. Love Diane G xxx
