Did this card when I got back. Stampin' Up wheel rolled on lime pastel chalk ink, Stampin' Up teddy chalked with pearlescent chalks and highlighted with glitter glue. Base card is paper mill shop and pink is craftwork cards softies. The tiny roses and lace are from Nortex Mill which is personal shoppers only and the sentiment is an Inca stamp I've had since back in the day. I know the wheel has missed in places but I quite liked the soft effect that created so decided not to scrap it.
Here's a pic of some of the goodies I brought back from the mill. Got plenty of those roses to go at
Just in case you're wondering-none of these were from the 10p a metre bin- more's the pity.
I did say I would tell you why I've been grumpy old woman today.......
well..... litter is one of my bugbears. I live in an area of large Edwardian houses which if they were in a posh area of London would make me a millionaire but they're not and there's not much garden either (which suits DH). Unfortunately although I do have some amazing neighbours who've lived round here for years I also have bedsit dwellers who come and go anonymously and don't care about the general environment because- well because. They have their reasons which sadly are in some cases drug and alcohol related. Twenty odd years ago when I first came to live around here I was friendly and outgoing with quite a few of the bedsit community but now I'm much more wary. Anyway-litter. It's the dustbins you see. If people don't take care they don't get emptied then black bags get dumped in the street which get dragged about by dogs, cats, pigeons and probably dossers looking for food. It spirals and litter gets blown all over the street. This week I cleared a lot and put it in my bin, tidied up someone elses bins etc etc.
Todays blog will grow and grow and a request has been made for fooooood so you'll have to wait for the next installment. Byeee
