Day trip to ......

Afternoon all 

Hope you are having a good day and things are well for you. 

Been a bit of a stressful couple of days - I must remember  I am powerless over people, places and things.
And I must not let things which are not in my power to get in my head and create havoc. 

However I had a nice afternoon yesterday making my latest project

And here it is.....

I started off with a blank white A4 sheet of stamping card and cut it in half.

Stamped the edges from the Elegant Corners stamp collection

Then made up the word Post Card from the Wordpress Letters

Added a stamp image with a Wee Rabbit for the stamp image, and a wavy line 
as the post mark.

Coloured in the very white card with Distress inks using a Clarity brush.
And coloured in the stamp so that the Wee Rabbit had grass to sit on :)

Then for the image - 

Used a part of my background mopped up ink papers and stamped Paris images onto 
the paper using permanent ink. Cut down the image and inked with alcohol pen.

Added to the Post Card 

And added writing .... and of course it has to be to my Mum :) 

I hope you like it - something different

I would like to enter it for the following 


Just as an up date - I have now had to cancel that order that I was waiting for, 
had confirmation last night that although I had a tracking number the parcel 
had not even been dispatched. It is not the suppliers fault but the Chanel who is selling 
the items. 

I have to say that the supplier is not very happy about it as it makes then look bad, 
I have stressed to them that it is not their fault. 

I hate it when I am let down....but again I have to remember Powerless....

Off to look for jam recipes 

Rhubarb jam maybe, but have just made this afternoon 2 and half pots of
Josaberry Jam using a combination of Blackcurrant and Gooseberry jam recipes.

Looks good....lets hope it tastes good

Thank you for popping over to see me today
