Totally Tim!

Another card from me today ... this time it is totally Lord Tim of Holtz! You know Tim ... the man that can estimate the number of pebbles on a beach just by looking at them while rebuilding a 747 from scratch with just a Pen Knib and a two inch piece of Ball Chain.
The background colour is made using a mixture of Distress Inks and then stamped with Vintage Photo!
This card was inspired by a card I saw in an old copy of Stampers Sampler ... the original was made by Shannon Sawyer and even though by the time I had finished ... it looked nothing like Shannon's lovely card ... in fact ... she may be shrieking at the screen at this very moment "Not in my name" ... I wanted to share!
What a shame it looks like rain for the royal wedding ... we have had such a long spell of sunshine here ... you would have thought that the Queen could pre-book the sunshine! I don't mean to whinge ... but damp weather plays havoc with my hair ... and my bridesmaid head wear will get all limp! Having said that ... I don't like the heat either ... it does unsightly things to my ankles!!!
So ... c'mon spill ... what you doing on Friday? Street Party? BBQ? Or have you been invited? That would be so cool ... if someone that was actually invited came on my little ole blog!
Righty-ho then ... I must away ... still tweaking classes ready for the release of the new season of classes at LB Crafts on Saturday 14th May 2011. They will, of course be ready for preview a week earlier ... as usual ... blimey ... that does n't leave much time!

One thinks ones inky efforts this afternoon are totally delightful. One would love to stop and partake in some earl grey, cream scones and crumpets but I'm afraid one must simply get ones derrière raised orf ones comfy chair and pollish ones silverware.
One is entertaining ones relies at the end of the week so soz better get on with getting the craft wing cleared up. Also need to air ones pac a mac one has heard one may need it on friday :(

Oh darlink... so sorry to hear you may end up with a case of the frizzies... rain does have that sort of effect and such a shame for the royal wedding to be drizzled on! I will camp out in the lounge and watch it all on the wide screen as it seems my invite got lost in the post by either Royal Mail or the thing that passes for it here!!
Love the card, great colours and design. (So glad you do the same and copy something then find it looks nothing like the original and you sort of wonder what happened)!!

Love the card - fabulous colours! Am off to a street party myself (assuming the invite is lost in the post?!) but have had the shocking news that "he who is frightened of buttons" doesn't want to watch the wedding! Doesn't seem very constitutional not to watch it does it? Will he whisked off to the Tower?

I'll be teaching up in Elmhurst,Ill. to a lovely group of ladies this weekend...but I'll have to check in on the Royals for sure.

Love the richness of the colour of your card - very manly.
No holiday here in Spain either so I will be teaching as usual - that is if my ladies don't stay in front of their tv's instead!!!
