Other reasons for not blogging....

Ok so I said that there were some good reasons for not blogging much recently...think I should come clean!

I had been working on a couple of magazine submissions...but freak out moment...DD1, 17 year old, finds a lump over Easter where there shouldn't be a lump. Seem to be spending a fair bit of time in hospital atm. Looks like (and fingers crossed) the lump is benign but they want to get it out fast just in case...just waiting for the op date now.

Blogging may be a bit sporadic...but watch this space.

Tanda Teaser....and news of a win!

I'm late again posting the latest Tanda Teaser on my blog....I do have several good excuses for this, promise....

With all the excitement about the royal wedding I decided to set a Wedding related Teaser. My main image was a Tanda stamp, stamped in Pumice stone distress ink (one of my fave colours). This was layered onto a scalloped nestie that I had stitched tea dyed cotton lace onto. The background papers were purchased from the Treasury. Overall the colours have giving this card a vintage feel.

I had been admiring some of the Magnolia tag dies, but the thought of spending more money put me off. The tag on this card was my way of getting the same sort of effect, not quite as pretty but pretty enough.

I know I did promise some more pics of Wisley, but you will have to wait a bit longer for now. I seem to be spending all my time at the moment watering the garden...I can't remember when we last had rain and the wind has been so strong that even well established plants are wilting. It looks like the weather might change by the weekend so I am going to make the most of the time I have today in the veg patch...

Oh I almost forgot....I had a lovely surprise at the weekend. My entry in the Sir Stamp a Lot monthly challenge won first prize! It was lovely to get some good news for a change.

Well I'd better get back to my digging!
