YOU LIGHT UP MY LIFE .....

After a brilliant show with the Happy Stampers at Port Sunlight on Saturday, we are now back home, the van is unpacked, and I'm exhausted!!  Just time for a little chat with you tonight before I get some much needed beauty sleep.

How's this for a superb bit of home decor designed for the love of your life?!



Just the right shape to display nice and big on Blogger - this is beautifully made by Effie, using CI-384, Grace Darling's Lighthouse, mounted on a section torn from a map and standing on a piece of driftwood secured with florists wire. Loving the bunting!!

Also by Effie I have the following images to show you ..


Here featuring The Party Puffin from the Alice Palace rubber stamp collection,- plus CI-035 and a ticket from CI-307 ..



Plus another page from her altered book/journal, again featuring Mr Party Puffin ...



Then finally another project, this time using embroidery cotton and thread.  Effie has had her needle out here and has cleverly adapted CI-385 into a piece of embroidered loveliness ...



And back at the lighthouse Paula has so very nicely decorated a plaque, also with CI-384 -


Then focusing on another one of our new stamps CI-386, Summertime Sylvie has used elements from this stamp in a scrap layout - very stylish indeed!


Thank you ladies for the beauties featured above, and thank you all for visiting us here.  Must have another catch up session soon, as I still have sooo much waiting to be displayed.
