Thanks for popping in.
Waved goodbye to Mark and his girl Alex this morning.
So the house is very quiet again.
Doesn’t seem that long ago they all landed!
And already that’s it for another year.
It was a great visit though.
You know I struggle with the distance between us and the kids;
it’s the one thing that really gets to me from time to time.
But it’s their choice to live in the States, and as long as they are happy, that’s all we can hope for, eh.
They were cute when they were nippers too....
Anyway, here’s a little Thank you card,
using our Thank You Framer Stamp set,
complete with mask and cat and dog and birdies!
and one of our brand new Designer Papers
which are being launched on HOCHANDA
Sunday, 2-4pm and 5-6pm
This is from the Brighton Rock Book,
the first in the Candy Shop Collection.
The main thing to point out here is that I have used coloured inks
to stamp out the main Thank You Framer,
instead of black, which is what me mostly tend to do.
Then simply outline the lettering with a black Micron Pen.
A matching Promarker, chisel end if you please, will make a nice divider between the artwork and the background paper.
I really use these Glue Pens a lot for assembly, you know.
They hold it so well.
Then just trim back the background paper, run a Sharpie pen around the edge, to make the line art pop,
and the job’s a good’n.
Look out for the 4 Clarity paper books on Sunday.
They are excellent.
Sunny day here, so we are heading out for a walk
before it gets dark.
The days are already getting longer though, which is a good thing.
Love & Hugs
