Q&L #18

The words for this fortnight’s Craft Barn challenge are Childhood and/or Easier; these were strange words for me and after looking through the various quotes brought back not such pleasant memories. I used a quote by Agatha Christie “One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life, I think, is to have a happy childhood”, sadly I wasn’t one of the lucky ones and I am just so happy that adulthood lasts much longer than childhood!!

Supplies:

Hand made foam stamp

Unknown rubber stamp

Inks – Versamagic Mango Madness

             Archival Jet Black

 

Easier:

I suppose because the childhood quote brought back not so nice memories then this Easier quote resonated very much with that period because my mother was not only an abusive person but she could also criticize for England. This quote is by Benjamin Disraeli “How much easier it is to be critical than to be correct”.
