Watercolour Stamping

Hey there ... How are you?

I'm feeling sorry for myself ... I've caught a cold from my son and I feel quite rotten right now plus Gipsy cat has had me up since 5am ...
My DH has had to go to the heart hospital for tests and being full of cold I couldn't be with him ... sigh

So much as I want to ... I haven't been up to creating but I did do a card yesterday ... practising stamping with watercolours

Just Us Girls have a Watercolour challenge this week

So this is my little contribution

I used Gelatos on my stamp and then sprayed it with water to get my background

The flowers and clock hands were on my desk so I added them to compliment the colours

and cut the "hello" using a PTI die

Thanks so much for stopping by ... I'm off to get some tea so I wish you all a lovely day

Of course I had to add the little cat ...

Words and Wisdom

Hello and good morning

Another week has flown by and once again it's time for a new word prompt at

This week Wendy chose the prompt for us ... which is 
We are sad to be saying goodbye to our lovely Wendy... This will be her last week with us, though I'm sure we will still see her join us whenever she can ... Sending you hugs and best wishes Wendy!

But it's Hello! To a new team member ... Robyn from Australia ... 
Welcome Robyn!

Words are powerful don't you think?

A page from my little book called 'A Thousand Paths To Enlightenment'
It's full of Words of wisdom...

Edited using Picmonkey

My son when he was young he used to write me little notes all the time ...

I've kept them all ... Words that touch my heart ...

He also spoke Words of wisdom ... 

I can remember one time when I was really down... someone I had once been close to now treated me with contempt ... It made me so sad ... My then 8 year old son asked me why I was so sad ... how do you explain to a child? I just told him that I didn't think (.... ) liked me anymore
My little boy put his arm around me and said "Mummy if (....) doesn't like you anymore then it's his problem ... not yours"
I have never forgotten his Words of wisdom and how much they have helped me cope when life gets tough

This prompt also caused me to remember something from way back when ...

Certificates I was awarded when I was a schoolgirl ... now yellow with age they were all about spoken Words ...

I wonder what you'll share with us this week at

We're looking forward to seeing your photos and the story behind them 

Till soon, have a lovely day

Happy Birthday Sue!

If I've got my date right tomorrow is the birthday of my sweet blog friend

Happy Birthday Sue!

This card will hopefully be at your home when you return from vacation

For the background I stamped white cardstock with 'Goosebumps' and did lots of sponging with various inks then added a few splashes of gelato paint to the front as well...

I delved into my box of odds and ends and scraps to to pull this together ... I wanted to capture a Spring feel to my card

I hope you like it Sue ... And I hope you have a wonderful birthday!

I'm entering this into the Mod Squad challenge 

... which I came across thanks to my friend Darnell

Have a lovely day/evening

Till soon
