Hello. Welcome. The other day I was hopping about, seeing what folk were getting up to and doing some serious lurking, although occasionally so overwhelmed I did take the time to comment LOL, when suddenly I found myself being directed to Unity Stamps who were having a sale. Always keen to check out a bargain and an unknown stamp company I hopped and, oh, perhaps not unknown after all.
When I was a total newby to blogland, many moons ago, I did a few blog hops. Didn't really understand what I was doing but it's a great introduction to find some blogs that interest you. Anyway, I was hopping and commenting, cos they said leave a comment, you could win. Would you believe I wasn't even sure what it was I was trying to win?? And then I did. Win, that is. Still not sure what I had won but sent my address and after a time an A4 set of stamps arrived. Wow, impressed I was. Really nice stamps. Real red rubber. Used very little since except for the 'never a dull moment' sentiment which has popped up now and again. Then suddenly I'm over at Unity Stamps and realise this is one of their sets, neglected in a corner. So, after a little shopping, I was having a look around and found a Challenge. Well, you got to have a go haven't you.........
All stamps on my card are from the Unity Stamps September 2012 SMAK kit. I masked with ripped paper and stamped on the LHS with the numbers and DI Dusty Concord. Then I coloured with DI Seedless Preserves. I stamped the check border with ColorBox Plumeria Chalk on white card and tinted with DI Dried Marigold. Then I layered two offset borders onto some orange card. I stamped the frame and fussy cut and added my photo. Not sure why the snow looks so blue! Maybe it was a grey day.
year I try and grow a giant pumpkin and at the end of October I have a
big harvest/halloween party. After the party the star of the show is
moved out into the garden and I light a candle in it every night until
it melts with the first frosts. Obviously this year it either held out a
long time of we had an early snow shower. I thought my favourite
sentiment from the SMAK kit worked perfectly. I added glossy accents to
the small orange punched circles.
