Good Afternoon! Lovely weather here in the UK.
A bit on normality for me now, although still being careful. Bowling's started up again!
Seemed strange at first, but, last week was better. Nice to see people again after 14th months.
Boy! Did my bones ache, not used to all the excise involved. No handshaking or making tea. Blocks and mats have to be sanitized, but, hopefully on the right road. 


This rubber stamp is Pea Pod Nap. Coloured with Copics. Distress Ink 'dried marigold' for the Sun.

Broken China for the sky. Both done with Tim Holtz Mini Stencil Set 2.  Lawn Fawn dies used.

Good Morning! Started this card yesterday. It took me longer to find the letters than it did to make it. Yes! They are all in the same box on a magnetic sheet, but, not in the right order.  Note to myself. 'will try and get them in alphabetical order' soon. 

A couple of new stamps popped through my letter box this week! Meet Amanda 'Cling Dream Flower' Stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and coloured with Copics. I've used a Whimsy Stamps Cloud Edger Die and Memory Box letters. Trebled the letters up so they stand out and used  the same sheet of paper.   Charm 'hanging' through the 'O', because the Challenge wanted you to incorporate one.
