New Craft Barn Challenge

Hello! At long last I am back here in blogland. It has been so long since I have posted I had almost forgotten my password:) Since my last post we have moved to sunny Cornwall, the unpacking is almost complete and only one or two jobs to finish doing to our new home. We are loving it here and wish we had done it years ago. We are now on the look out for a doggy companion!

Well to cut to the chase there is a new challenge on the Craft Barn blog it is a dictionary challenge and the first letter is ‘B‘. For my entry I am using 4 x 4 inch card stock however this first entry is a pretty sad affair as I was fast running out time!

Dictionary B 01-16 sigI chose the word Block as in Block of Colour and that is the dictionary definition I have gone with.

UK Stampers postcard swap

I am always in awe of regular bloggers who can come up with original titles for their posts, sadly I don’t number amongst them!

Over on UK Stampers Sam has set an open theme for our monthly postcard swap. Recently I received, from a very kind friend, a large envelope stuffed full of stamps so some of these had to be used to make my postcard, however few of the stamps came with their original packaging and my friend has no idea who manufactured many of them. So does anyone recognise the little birds and corner flourish? The centre birds do now have a name but the parrot and flourish are still anonymous.

Enjoy Life's moments

The shadow stamps are hand made using dies to cut out funky foam and inked up with Versamagic, the birds, flourish and saying were stamped using Versafine Onyx Black. The squiggle around the edges is so obviously hand “drawn” with a fine (0.5) black Letraset pen !

Hope someone can name those stamps.

Thank you for looking x
