Hello my names Marie and I’m addicted to ……..no not gin stamps !!!!!! There’s a nasty rumour going around that I’m a little too fond of the “sauce ” I think I may have started the rumour myself , albeit in a desperate attempt for attention, hoping to distract you all from the fact that I’m a naff card maker ! It seems to have worked , even my own sister Karen at Tricky Little stitches is fueling the fire !!!! Another attention seeker in the making ! I would just like to point out that although I do occasionally partake of the ” waters ” I am far from vacationing at the Betty Ford clinic and this is all purely for your entertainment. I know that Florence from Florence and Freddie and the lovely Lynne from Adorn are having great fun maligning my name, don’t let all that lovely lace and prettiness fool you ! Now before Suze Bain jumps on the bandwagon and says that denial is part of the illness I just want to assure you all that my recent injuries are not alcohol induced just me being clumsy !!
Its time once again for a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and our theme this week is Bingo so have a peep at the little card below and choose your line you know the drill
I chose score, grey and circle but I see that as chance would have it I also have score , free and purple !! so I don’t know whether I win a prize or am disqualified !!!!
Basic Grey Dp for the background , Spellbinders circles for ……the circles duh!!!!! Tim Holtz mini and maxi paper rosettes dies and what looks like a Rowntrees blackcurrent fruit pastel in the centre was made by I with one of my handmade moulds filled with clear acrylic and a few drops of alcoholic , sorry I mean alcohol ink for the lush colour. Leaves courtesy of SU and Melon Mambo ink. Oh and the curved sentiment is from my cameo did a little bit of magic to curve the sentiment and all done !
Right if your still with me please pop over to Addicted to Stamps and have a peep at what the DT have made , there are some gobsmacking tricky cards for your viewing pleasure and then there is of course mine.
Before I leave just wanted to show you a piccie of Ziggy my friends cat who shares my new craft studio, I had just bought this little basket to keep some of my tat in and the furry feline was in it in a flash !!!!!
For the eagle-eyed amongst you that whisky and coke in the background is not mine !!!!!
Right am off into the night , hobbling home in my flip-flops in the rain( still can’t get my shoes on )
Oh and a word of warning am going for the ” Triple ” three posts in three days you lucky, lucky , people !
