NO WORDS NECESSARY !


Hi, have had a great weekend watercolouring; mainly catching up with my homework. If you want a good laugh at my efforts I will post them for you to see......

Anyway I had to make a Valentines card for hubby, luckily we both have the same sense of humour...... No Words Necessary is the challenge at the fab blog Drunken Stampers and Stampotique's challenge is a Valentine card, another great blog.

Products used: Tim Holtz embossing folder, Distress Inks, Paint Dabbers, Whisper pens. Stamps are Stampotique and Magnolia..........(poor Tilda.......lol)

Gingersnaps are seeking 2 more Designers for the Design Team; a very friendly and talented bunch of crafters (and I'm one of them........lol), see my sidebar for the link.

Oh well, hubby will be home soon so had better get the roast on after I have cleared up all my mess..........and there is a lot of it.............Catch up with you all later and have a lovely Sunday, take care, Annette x
