Magical July

Afternoon all and thank you for popping in. 

Have you been watching the tennis.... it is on as I write. 

I do like watching but all the grunting does make me want to turn off, how about you. 

So here is my card for today. 

Yesterday I was working on this challenge making background papers. 

I used a gelli plate and followed the instructions, as best I could, on the Calendar 
from Clarity Stamps 

Photos of my journey ....... 

I had to use individual letter stamps to make the word Magical as I did not have the 
actual word, but I am quite pleased with it. 

I have mounted it onto white card, black card and onto a white large card blank. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Well I have been able to get out into the garden earlier and picked, processed and put in the 
freeze 1.5 pounds of fruit. 

Think some of it will have to be jam - so building up the quantities to be able to 
make a batch. I suppose it will work = fruit having been frozen? 

Have a good day - feeling bit down today, family "stuff" going round in my 
head, trying to keep strong without it sounding that I am struggling. 

Powerless over people, places and things 

Got that off my chest and best be getting on.

  1. Love it. I think you've done a wonderful job with the background and the silhouette stamps look great. I don't have a geli plate yet but I've really enjoyed making backgrounds lately, nearly as much as stamping. Crafty hugs, Sandra X

  3. Fabulous card and wonderful inking, great design, Kate x

  4. The jam will work Pen. I always pick at this time of year make jam with half and freeze the rest.
