I'm back

Sorry I've been so deadly silent lately. An accident on a quad bike left me with a broken scaphoid bone in my right hand... Yes, I'm right handed, very much so.. whisking an egg was hilarious and brushing my teeth left handed was, odd! More than 8 weeks with my hand in a cast was miserable and not only was typing a major problem but stamping was a big nono. I did try left handed but I wasnt very good.

Anyways my cast is now off and just in time for the new catty I can stamp again, yay.

My big problem now is that I have more than a few new ink pads & card add that to a few of the new clear mounted sets (woohoo, yes most of the SU sets now come unmounted and ready to use with acrylic blocks) and I have a dilemna what do I play with first lol.

This is one I managed to stamp left handed. Thankfully the distressed look didnt need to be stamped as well as I normally like.

This one is a mix of the old & new.

Bella toile background stamped with versamark & clear ep on to whisper white before being tinted with baja breeze (this ink is better than lush) and pear pizazz (one of the 5 new in colours).

En francais script background stamped with kraft, sorry the new name is crumb cake, then the eiffel tower and round pattern from Artistic Etchings was stamped with early espresso & baja breeze.

White taffeta ribbon tinted with pear pizazz ink. The sentiment is from one of the new sets, perfect punches and fits beautifully with the scalloped oval punch. Sadly we werent allowed to order the new large oval punch until yesterday but now I have and once it's arrived I inted to back the sentiment with some more soft suede cardstock to match the card base.
