Favourite Things


This week Simon Says Stamp and Show are asking for your favourites, so for those of you who know me you'll know my love for corrugated and I also have a bit of a thing for pan pastels too!!!  So I decided to combine the two together.  The background is a mixture of pearl, silver and snow cap acrylic dabbers with of course the top layer peeled off the corrugated.  I ran the world embossing folder through the big shot and lightly coloured it with pan pastels.  I cut the word journey from the movers and shapers die in black card and mounted it on a piece of mesh.  I stamped the word world, cut it out, coloured it with pan pastels and glued it on.

Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
