WOYWW


http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk
Good snowy morning to you all, I can't believe I am so late, I know it is mid-term but I didn't wake up until 9-45am, that's not like me at all. Anyway I am trying to take my time as this is the second time I have tried to do my blog, the first one half disappeared. So I got up late , took the photo, came down, plugged the iron in, made a brew and tried to rush everything, it was when I posted the link to Julia Dunnit that things went wrong, so I will leave that to the end, but, if you see a link to the stamping ground please click on it and what an amazing world will open up to you! Anyway My desk as you can see I have been playing with masks, some 'That Special Touch' and some Splodgeaway, as you can see I have been heat embossing and using distress inks, mica powder  and vaseline! And, because it is a snow day when I have finished my ironing and had my breakfast-no it will be Brunch, I am going upstairs to play some more! In case you are wondering how I can iron and blog I have a steam press so it doesn't need hands on all the time.The other photos in this blog are the cards I made with those black and red toppers from a few weeks ago. OOOhhh bif snowflakes now! I am going to insert the link and then try to make the other photos smaller. Keep warm.

  9. Hi Carol, I went on the train to Manchester this morning and couldn't believe it when I got there, there was a layer of snow everywhere and it snowed the whole time I was there and when I got back home it was snowing there aswell, and still is, brrrrrrr.
    Your inking, masking goodies look really good, can't wait to see how you use those.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

    1. Hi Patricia, it is 3-40pm and is stopped about 5 minutes ago, it is drizzly now, the weight of the slush is making it fall from the trees already. I have just made some gunge with cornflour , glue and mica, and used the masks, I am waiting to see what the dried effect will be. Take care in this snow, finger's crossed it will have gone by tomorrow.
