Sir Stampalot July Challenge

Hi All

I haven't deserted you all, just had some problems getting the new Laptop to do what I want it to do!! Give me windows 98 any day... Every time I turn it on it comes up with another silly question.. I do wish they wouldn't load stuff on that's not really needed.

I won the last Sir Stampalot challenge, and Wow, what a prize, Loads of punches, anyone that knows me knows that I love my punches. they get used for all sorts of things.. so they will be well used. When they arrived I couldn't wait to open them all up and try each one.. so I downed tools and did just that.. I went past lunch time without even realizing..(lol) and the dreaded housework still not finished.

So thank you everyone, it really did make my day

Sir Stampalot July challenge

The Challenge this month is Lazy Hazy days of Summer.

Lots of scope for this challenge, but what to choose? In the end I went for what summer means to me... Trees in full leaf, flowers in full bloom, Butterflies, Sun and Showers... but how to interpret that?

Ive chosen some green card stock, and inked it up with Adirondack ink in Lettuce, and stamped over it with Ranger's green peeled paint ink, using some tapestry stamps.
Found a picture on one of my crafting cds, which I printed out in two different sizes, Cut them with Nestabilities. and placed one on the face of the card and the other Ive used a the stopper of the easel card. I used a Penny Black sentiment stamp.
