Category Archives: Paper Artsy
this is the left hand side from yesterday’s post, I might have to move the word “love” as I stupidly didn’t check where the holes for the posts went.
Stamps used: Paper Artsy Kids Plate, Anita’s Seahorse and Heart background.
Inks: Crystal Blush re-inker, Pearlescent Purple and Coffee Brilliance and Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress Inks
I got a nice surprise this morning, Guy came back from Sevenoaks bearing a Pine Green Whispers Dye Ink for me.
Apart from that, I’ve been busily houseworking, and then took Lydia swimming this afternoon.
We’ve just had fish and chips for supper, and are about to settle down to a dose of Dr Who.
for Guy’s brother – he’s getting married again in July, and Guy feels that he has to go, so I am very reluctantly being dragged along.
Fortunately, we will only have to suffer the Registry Office service and small meal afterwards, then we can high tail it home again…..but in any event, we needed an acceptance, so I’ve spent a few minutes this morning knocking one up.
Card base is a 12 x 6″ piece of Bazzil folded in half to make a 6 x 6″ card, my new favourite card blank to make at the moment. The paper is by Sweetwater, and the stamp along the left hand edge is my new one that I got yesterday (another Do Crafts), which is stamped in the other new purchase from yesterday a Whispers Dye Ink in Port Wine. Only other stamp on this is the heart from Aud’s Cat’s House Sheet.
The central image is from a Paper Artsy Picture pack (008), which is just such a lovely quick way to get a central image. You get two transparencies and two pictures per pack.
We enjoyed the film I mentioned yesterday, and all three of us ended up sobbing – quite unexpected to find a sad part like that in the middle of a film (I won’t spoil it for people and say what happend). It was a cracking watch, and would highly recommend it for kids about Lydia’s age and adults alike.
I’m sitting here eagerly anticipated a cooked brunch, which is on the go at the moment, then we are off to watch Lydia dive a bit later on.
I really enjoyed doing this, and am well up on time, so maybe I can get another done before next Wednesday.

On the spotty side of the Tag it all, I stamped the “Keep this coupon” image in Timber Brown StazOn from the same plate, and the Heart from Pierrot Plate 4 (Paper Artsy) in Peeled Paint Distress Ink.
