Look what waited for me when I got home on Wednesday. Yeah, a huge branch (well it is huge to me as this is about the only tree in my garden), had fallen down from all the rain. We had 3 days worth of constant rain. The poor tree. I guess I should consider myself lucky as it fell into the garden, if it had been anywhere else it would've fallen on the wall and on my electric fence and probably would've broken it. Electric fence I hear you ask :-) Yes, we have electric fences here for security. A small deterrent, hoping robbers will not target you and your house.
Anyhow, i do have a card to share with you all. So read on.
This image is also one of the ones which was sent to me by Paula. I wish I owned such gorgeous stamps.
It was for a colleagues whose daughter is turning six tomorrow. Boy did I struggle to decide where to add the 6. It took me forever. It just did not look good wherever I placed it. Finally this is what I came up with.
I guess this is a Whiff of Joy stamp. I coloured it with my Lyra pencils and baby oil. Talking about baby oil. A fellow blogger, weewiccababe, asked me about the baby oil. Yip it works just as well as Sansador and Gamsol. I have sansador, and it was expensive, but read somewhere on the net about using baby oil with wax based pencils, so I thought I had to try it. It works like a charm and somehow I prefer it to the Sansador. I am sorry now I spent all that money on it, but that's life hey.
I also stamped the name Sid, short for Sidney at the bottom in VersaMark watermark ink, it is not that visabile on the photo.
So here is the card, hope you like it.
Cay all soon.
