SUNDAY'S MUTTERINGS

Well I feel like I've done a full day and its only 10.30 a.m.! Hubby and I have treated the family to a spa/hot tub - when we left the States and had to leave our lovely pool we promised the kids we'd at least get a hot tub - well that was three years ago and we decided that rather than have a holiday this year abroad we'd go for the hot tub. Its so relaxing - and hubby and I were out there at 7.30 this morning - clear blue sky, no kids, it was so nice.

DS has gone out already - Andover has a new cinema and he and his friends have gone off to see a movie - DD is yet to stumble out of bed, and I'm blog surfing.

I've found some more blog candy on my travels - http://scrapmetalsretreat.blogspot.com/ - pop along here and leave a comment and a link.

And some more here at Enjay's blog

And more - at Martine's blog

And even more here - a must for Stampin Up Fans -
ANd more here at Michelle's - check out her lovely miniature donkeys

Has anyone taken up the This Thursday challenge of working with beads - if you like your beads you'll love the prize! Although I found beads quite challenging to work with - especially the little fiddly things - I did put some on another card today - these were a lot easier to work with. I've been playing with some inks today making some backgrounds.


There's something afoot on the inchy blog too - you'll have to wait till tomorrow to find out what though!

Well, I'd better throw in a few cards for you to look at! I've done a pocket card here with my SU stamps - I love this colour combination of the green and the black - what do you think? I could do with some good white ink - any ideas?





I've been playing with some inks making some backgrounds - can you spot the Tiger's Eyes on here?

What a lovely way to start the day - in the hot tub - bliss!

I love green and black together too. Regarding white ink, I've hear brillance is ok, but I haven't tried it.

I'm with Sian, Fi... great start to the day (although it's not warm enough here!). Brilliance is supposed to be very good ;-]

jellybeanBrilliance is worth a bash, so is Stazon Opaque cotton white. None, IMHO have the full on opacity that we are looking for when stamping.

Jane said...

Will be interested to try the Brilliance in white too, lovely work Fiona :)
