Remember Me????

SSS2211 Huh??? Do You???

Many moons ago ... in a land ... not far from here ... I used to be a regular blogger :0) Then lawdy only knows what happened ... but I stopped blogging altogether ... mainly because I could think of nothing to say ... and worse still ... I could n't think of anything to make either!

Hopefully ... all that is behind me now! I spent a fabulous day on Saturday ... seated next to the Lovely Karen ... and the successful recipe for rebooting my Mojo was indeed one of the Wonderful Lin's journalling classes. I have been unable to leave my journal for little more than a few minutes at a time since ... I am enjoying it that much! I have discovered that 'my thing' when it comes to journalling is working on lots of different pages at the same time ... I am loving it!

So what is the little house all about then??? I hear you ask! Well ... this is my DT submission for Simon Says Stamp and Show this week ... the theme this week indeed Distress Inks ... once again sponsored by the Simon Says Stamp team ... do join in if you can!SSS12211

My house is coloured solely with Lord Tim of Holtz Distress Inks ... you know Tim ... the man that can create the prettiest of frosts while playing the harp with his feet with just a finger tip full of Rock Candy Stickles and the cap from a Ranger Inkssentials White Gel pen! If you are in any doubt who the stamps are by ... I can confirm they all are THE Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 designs ... don't you just LOVE those distressed lines?

I must away ... big week for me ... am off to Paris ... oh yes people ... Pareeeeee ... in ...erm ... France ... I am TRES excited ...

Mon Dieu! So you come back only to leave us again! Pffft.

Have an amazing time Linda ;) Love the little house, when you say you use all distress inks - do you rub the pad over everything to get that vibrancy or do you use a sponge?

See you back here soon I hope :) Ooh la la!

So glad that you are back in the land of blogs.....I've missed your daily dose of "cheer me up" stuff.

That is one fab house, I think we should all live in houses that look like that!!

You're gonna knock their socks off in Paris.

Take care, L. x
