Brrr!  It’s cold outside in the UK!!! Fortunately, I live in the North West and for once, the weather here isn’t anywhere near as bad as the rest of England.

I’ve had a bit of a change this week, decided not to use as many flowers and to play around a little more, so this is the result. I’ve also had a week of making things I wasn’t really happy with and that’s frustrating!

I love these images and had to use the quote because used with the images, it made me smile. I enjoy black and white now and again because it changes the focus of my stamping and makes me think a little more. I stamped the lady first, masking her before stamping the tiled floor.


I fancied playing around a bit with more collage type images and found these two girls, already cut out and ready to use, so I just had to use them in my journal…


…and on this card, which I stamped the Paperartsy house I’ve had for ages and not used.


A bit more journalling… from my A4 journal.


Finally, an experiment that went wrong… but I love the background colours, so I’m blogging it anyway!


I’d like to enter the following challenges:-

Try it on Tuesday challenge – vintage

Tuesday Throwdown Black and White Challenge and

Addicted to Stamps and More – Anything Goes.

Thanks to Country View Challenges for a Top Three award – woohoo!!!

Thanks for looking.

Be back soon!
