The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

Yay - the new tv is installed and working - thanks to my bro'.... cheers Rich! Sadly it didn't help Andy Murray win the Australian Open, but I am sure it's not MY fault! (sorry to disappoint, Sherry, but I didn't reorganise when putting the c**p stash back!) - I wanted to craft!
Hels' Sunday Stamper today is "sentiments" and I needed to make a birthday card for my best friend which I hope she won't see till it arrives, so...inspired totally by a card Hels has blogged herself today but with a different stamp! (this is by magenta, and I love it!)
I used crushed olive and tumbled glass DI's and the watermark technique, and some heirloom gold perfect pearl spray on top. Decided it needed something else after I fixed the HB so peeled off the sticky tabs, moved it and added some toning prima flowers (the cream one toned after I coloured it with crushed olive, lol!
I was also lucky enough to be given another award
- from the hugely talented Neet - aka Hickydorums, who is currently at CHA and I am SO jealous!! I have to pass it on to 7 more people but I really hope she - and you - won't be offended if I award it to you all, instead, as I find it so hard to limit my choices, especially as I was lucky enough to get another award recently too, which I did pass on!
I really do appreciate this, Neet.
Oh, and if you read yesterday's post - I am polishing off the chocs nicely!
