Monday, July 4

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July to all my American friends! I hope whatever you do to celebrate today ... you have lots of fun doing it!
It is ... of course ... just any other Monday here in the UK ... I say any other Monday ... it is bloomin' hot at the moment!
Okay ... now on to matters in hand ... Monday brings a new theme over at the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and this week is no exception! The new theme is ... Stamp and Show a Flourish!

I used Lord Tim of Holtz's Shabby French Flourish ... you know Tim ... the man that taught Karate Kid every thing he knows while painting the Girl with the Pearl Earring with just a 2" square of Grunge Paper and an Ink Blending tool!
Anyways ... it's been aaaaages since we had a proper chat ... so let me know what you are up to ... and remember if you get chance to pop by the challenge blog ... you can see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to and if you enter ... you get a chance to win a $50 Shopping Spree courtesy of the wonderful site sponsor Simon Says Stamp!
Right ... I must away ... I have some MOJO for the first time in like ... light years ...
Laters!
