Here we go with another fabulous guest challenge from Wanda
Since last week, I have been in and out and had my knee surgery!!! Oh boy, is this difficult so I won't be long!!! More a different time... tee hee
Wanda has set a wonderful dream this week, to use acetate and alcohol in your dreams, including at least one real stamp as always... so here she is -
Hi, my name is Wanda. I live not far from the beautiful North Wales Coast, out in the hills not far from the Colwyn Bay. I love living here though it is a bit off the beaten track if you don’t drive; luckily I do. My husband and I run a boarding cattery here which keeps us very busy, especially in the season, so we find it hard to take holidays together. My love of crafts goes back to when I was just three years old and my grandmother taught me to knit, then later on to sew, using her treadle sewing machine. I spent a lot of time with her. I have crafted all my life mostly knitting, crochet, and sewing, and a little photography and drawing (badly). I discovered card-making about five or six years ago when I was home bound owing to illness. I was due to look after my (then) nine year old grand-daughter for a couple of weeks and went into my local craft shop to look for inspiration. I came home laden with an assortment of materials. I have found the crafting community to be a very generous, helpful group and I have learned so much from others. Very soon, after making quite a few ill advised purchases, I discovered rubber stamps and the rest is history. I love building up my collection of stamps. My favourite style is grungy and messy. I like putting inks down on paper and creating my own backgrounds from plain cardstock or paper. I enjoy using the brayer and then creating scenes from the backgrounds I have made.
I hope my tag inspires you and I look forward to seeing what you create with the theme “Acetate and Alcohol! The idea is that you use acetate and alcohol in your creation, although it’s not such a bad idea to have a little drink – just to help keep the creative juices flowing! You could use alcohol inks, as I have done, or an alcohol related stamp, be it a wine bottle, beer or wine glass, or a wine label. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Have fun!
So my lovely dreamy friends, just enjoy and forgive me if I do not appear as often as possible!! I WILL publish your posts as frequently as I can... Wanda is off to a Stamp Addicts retreat this weekend, lucky girl, so she will catch up as an when!!!! ENJOY
