Women Only = Wendy Only!

I had a great week last week ... busy few days teaching and then some much needed R and R! Just want to wave to all my lovely ladies ... these are fun days tinged with sadness as lots of my ladies had their last classes with me at LB ... end of an era! I keep getting asked what I am going to do next and the simple truth is ... Who knows??? I am sure I will think of something :0)
And the good news is ... I can now tick that NON SMOKER box on any application forms ... oh yes indeed people ... it's about 15 weeks since my last cigarette ... am I still craving??? ... yes indeedy ... but I have n't weakened and that is the main thing!
Right ... onto the job in hand! Simon Says Stamp and Show this week is having a Women Only week. I interpreted said theme by using women only designed stamps ... any excuse to get me THE Wendy Vecchi stamps out to be honest!
My little book is made out of Manilla tags and bound together using a small piece of ribbon.
I coloured the tags with Shabby Shutter Distress Stains; Broken China Distress Ink and a spritz of Turquoise Perfect Pearsl ... LOVE that combination!
ALL the stamped images you can see are THE Wendy Vecchi and I have added a bit of Lord Tim of Holtz Idea-Ology to finish ... you know Tim ... the man that persuaded Berlesconi to resign while balancing 5462 plates on his head and walking accross hot coals with just a long legged brad and a spot of white enamel accents.

Righty-ho then ... I must away ... I am teaching a canvas class in Olney today and I plan to do a serious amount of shopping while I am there.
If you get chance please join in with the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge ... details are all here ... the theme may be Women Only ... but it is certainly open to men too and there is a $50 shopping voucher up for grabs to spend at Simon Says Stamp in any way you choose.
Have a great week people!
Laters!

Fabulous little book Linda and lurve those colours and of course, the gorgeous Wendy stamps.

Well done on the non-smoking too. I stopped nearly 5 years ago now and I'm sorry to say still get the craving now and again but it's worth it to be rid of the feeling of being a social pariah, lol!

Hugs
