An Acetate Card - Sea Ya Soon

Phew!! This sure was a tricky card to make and even more trickier to photograph!!
Ive been itching to be let loose on this stamp I got for my birthday and still being in the holiday mood was the perfect time!!lol
I don't think Ive attempted a full acetate card before, but I wanted to make Tilda look like she was in the ocean

Tim's Sizzix Die 'Scrollwork' was perfect for the waves. Mermaid Tilda was painted with Distress inks 'Broken China' and 'Shabby Shutters'

Embellishments from stash.

Back Home..

Hello everyone.... Just a quickie
Ive just returned home from two weeks lazing in the glorious sun and loved every minute.But I'm now back in rainy England!!!! Sorry if I havent been blogging and commenting much recently, I will hopefully catch up shortly.
It's been a little hectic recently. It was my 4oth Birthday on the 7th Aug and my hubby organised a small surprise party with close family members. It was the perfect day. Then on the Sunday we set off on our hols.
I would like to thank all my lovely friends for my pressies. Lots of craft goodies too which will keep me quiet for ages!!! I will try and take a piccy when ive sorted through my mountain of washing and ironing. But this is one of them below. My own personalised stamp!!! Ive been searching for one of these for ages!! So thankyou thankyou it's perfect xxx

Also Thankyou all for the comments on the last three posts which I had scheduled while away!! Thankfully it worked!

Hopefully back soon

Lots of love

A Greeting of Love

Now three weeks in(I think) as Guest DT for Whiff of Joy, here is my third card. I have used 'Melinda Hugging Heart'. I must say they are lovely images to use with Distress inks.
The Stamped Corners are from 'Aspects of Design 54 Distress Borders and Corners'. It isnt actually mine, it's what I borrowed from Jill a while back and I had given her them back. But when I cleaned my craftroom the other day I found this one under my drawer!!! WHOOPS!!! soz Jill!!!lol. But it has sold me the sheet now, because I love it and has soooo many uses.
The rest is from stash and of course I used my Nesties.

Thankyou for looking.
lots of Lurrvvee

The Stampman ATC Swaps-Time

Ok so I said before I hadn't ever done an ATC (this is my second one)! But im really enjoying them so far and I loved doing this one. I don't really know what is was that scared me about them. Perhaps it was the size of them and when the subject 'Time' was chosen, I panicked even more!!lol

Anyway my Hero flowers to the rescue. I have used two flowers from two different sets here

CL375 Big Flower Pattern and CL 374 Big and small flowers. I love love love!! these sets and just couldnt decide which to have, so I just had to have them both!!lol
The clocks in the centre are just amazing and they can be found here.

So please, even if your not an avid ATC er! it's certainly worth a LOOK. There was some fab entries last time and I bet Janet will be in her element swapping them all.

Byeeeee for now

and Thanks for looking

Love Debbie
