My Lovely Friends,

I thought you had the key lol,

Hi guys, it's poured down all day here and most of yesterday too, so I've put together a card which I'm not to sure of, you ever do that?
I got some Distress re inkers and wanted to practise with them, so it was more for that than anything else, lol
me thinks me still needs more practise lol, but I enjoyed using them,
as you know I love Tim Holtz stuff so I've used his papers, and his sprocket gears for the car spokes, I saw this done by the lovely mega talented  Debbie the other day and seeing as I had some, I borrowed her inspiration, hope you don't mind hun,

I used a Go Kreate die to make my card then made a few folds and applied this to the underneath front of it to give the front some steps  for the images, only six images  this time though  lol,ooppss I tell a lie their is eight as there is a snail and a mushroom that you can't see clearly! the background on the houses I did by brushing distress inks on with some  duster brushes, gives a lovely soft look,
I made the sold sign using a spellbinders die then added wire to the top for it to look like it was hanging, only then I've covered it up with the Marianne die flowers DUH!

Simon Says stamp ~ anything goes

I probably won't get round to you again tonight as I've got the hairdresser coming, but I will be back tomorrow lol, well hopefully!!!

I hope you guys are all having a lovely time what ever your doing, see you soon,
love and hugs Liz xx

ps does any one have a way of storing distress re-inkers so that you can see what colour they are out of the bottle, as they all look the same lol xx
