Gamer boy!

Today is my daughter's boyfriend's birthday, and she asked me to make a card using this lovely Lili of the Valley stamp. Isn't this little lad just adorable? I put glossy accents on the red racing car, but the photo isn't good enough to pick that up - and irl the colours are brighter, but you get the picture!

I distressed round the edges with Broken China, which is rather blotchy, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, and I will just have to practise.

The fab sketch was from last week's challenge, so I've missed the deadline, but what the heck!

This week I have mostly been cleaning the Manor, as it's the holidays, huzza! I have several bags of stuff for Oxfam, all my son's dvds and books are in boxes in the garage, and I have cleared and cleaned all my food cupboards! I am so impressed with myself!!!

The downside is the smell of detergent that hangs around me - not my fave perfume!

Hopefully tomorrow I can settle down in my nice, tidy spare room and listen to the cricket and do some crafting. About time, too!

luv, Mags x

Hi Mags

It is great to be back. Can't believe we have only been away part of a week and yet managed to fit so much in.

I too am in love with the LOTV images at the moment - I must nip over and see what their challenge is this time round.

Hope your daughter's boyfriend liked his card. I think it is lovely.

I too am trying to use my distress inks more and must admit that I am getting quite hooked.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love Jules xx
