Did you miss me?

Hi everybody, Sorry I haven't been around for a while, life seems to be catching up with me. I have been making cards and going to my Parchment classes but not really had time to post anything.  I keep checking on everybody elses Blogs to see what is happening out there in Blogland!  Went Ally Pally on Saturday with a friend and got lots of new ideas, could have spent a lot of money but I was very restrained as we had to buy a new printer last week, the other one was only about 18 months old but it decided it didn't want to take in the paper any more. As I have got the Wedding Stationary to make for my son's wedding before January we couldn't really manage without one.

I decided to have a go at the sketch from Less is More this week and this is what I came up with.  I am trying to make some desk calenders, using easel cards, for a sale I am doing in November and thought this might work.  The background is made by blending Scattered Seed and Dried Marigold Distress Inks which I then stamped over with stamps from the Meadow Flora set from Creative Expressions using S U Cajan Craze ink.  I then took Mandi's idea and rubbed it with Versamark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is from the same set of stamps.  I think it works.

Thank you for taking the time to visit, your comments are greatly appreciated.
