We had no electrickery for over 12 hours yesterday – there was a cable fault at the top of the street, so it affected the whole street. It doesn’t half make you realise just how much of your lifestyle is dependent on technology! No cooker (despite being gas, it’s ignited by electrickery and the oven is powered by it), no phones, no lights, no music, no TV, no kettle, fridge and freezer defrosting, no clocks, no heating, no hot water – need I go on????? It was a great excuse to play until the light ran out, so got to play for an hour or so and then I made some papers, while the light was fading :) My stamping room stays light the longest in the house, but of course it was one of those really dark days, so even that didn’t last long :(

I added the Glossy Accents to this at around 11pm in the dark - well, by candlelight - so they're far from perfect, lol.

Oh my word - these are brilliant - I truly truly love them and covet them. Your backgrounds are amazing and I am so very envious of your stamps - gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.


These are fabulous Cath - love the one with the ink and the pen nibs. Your colouring is amazing as always.
