(3) Water colouring with Distress Markers

I have a few Magnolia stamps , well okay more than a few LOL . I thought as I had the time to practice something new I would watercolour my stamped images with my distress marker inks . I was quite pleased with the results , I have been following Jenny Hodges and Becky Hetherington's You Tube tutorials for this .

Faster Broadband now so I am back LOL

Hello Everyone , I guess you are surprised to see me here. I have been posting on Face Book for some time due to problems with the broadband speed here. I was unable to open some of your blog pages due to the broadband problem here and it was becoming difficult and extremely time consuming to comment on your makes. I found that Facebook and in particular my I.Pad was quick and easy and so I have been over there for a while.We are now hooked up to Fibre and this area can now enjoy a fast broadband YEAH !!!
I hope you are all well and will be visiting you all soon , infact once I have done all my housework and my huge pile of ironing ( well it has been a bank holiday ) then I can start to blog again.
Update , Dad is living with myself and my hubby Tim , Dad has been with us for over a year now. Mum is in a nursing home, she has had a couple more strokes but she is still hanging in there, my goodness she has more lives than a cat,  considering the hospital sent her home to die (again ! ) 8 months ago.
 I have been crafting over the weekend and will post some of my makes today to get started. Take care and see you all soon Love and Hugs Elaine


A couple of Wedding cards made this weekend using Tattered lace dies , house mouse decoupage and some cute bear decoupage .

Hello Everyone ,

I take my I-PAD into the nursing home and we chat,  well I do the chatting and she just nods LOL. We talk about everything and I show her photos of the cards I have been making and what new things I have purchased  etc.
