Baby Seagull

When we arrived at work this morning there was a baby seagull on the ledge outside my window - he's possibly 2 - 3 weeks old and we think he must have fallen off the roof above. He kept looking in at me, tapping on the window and squawking for food. I didn't have any raw fish on me today (!) but he seemed to like chicken and melon ........

More glimmer misted backgrounds .......

Over the weekend I did a couple of quickie cards using some of the glimmer mist backgrounds I made a couple of weeks ago. Stamps on both are by Onyx Xpressions.

The tiger is literally just stamped in black Stayzon - so easy!

This pair didn't stand out so well as I'd hoped, but, hey ho, after a bit of colouring in with the old faithful gel pens and being liberally coated with Glossy Accents they turned out quite well - they stand out much better in real life. I really like the background on this one - sequin waste came in useful yet again!

Where did the time go.......?

Suddenly it's mid June and I haven't uploaded any photos for 2 months!  I wound down before we went on holiday early May and then didn't pick up speed again until the last week or so. But, I'm here now and want to show the hanging ATCs I made for one of the groups I'm a member of - I chose to go with a Mona Lisa theme stamped onto a background done with Glimmer Mist sprays. Stamps are by Cherry Pie.

I also made a Father's Day card for my FIL; not sure that he'll actually like it as it's a bit too 'wierd' for his tastes, but I liked the way the background (glimmer mists) and stamps worked and decided to go with it!!  Oh, and I know the sentiment is rather crooked - the sticky tabs 'grabbed'! I'm hoping Dad won't notice!
