Smash Your Stash Journal Challenge

 WOW the last Saturday of May and time for the Smash Your Stash journal page challenge with Vicki so please check out her beautiful page-the theme this month is ephemera/chipboard/cut outs.

I have a box with journal full of bits and found a great stamped piece then just about covered it up! Had a vintage pic already printed for a project but was too big so tore of the edges and found two photo mount stickers no idea where from -didn't even know I had them lol-some little postcards /dry wall mesh/corrugated cardboard/two butterflies I found/ a rose cut from wrapping paper and a little freebie sentiment from TLC Designs quite a few years ago.

Tried to splatter with a Graphik pen which was a bit of a disaster came out as blobs and then stupidly tried to dab them and made it worse.

Runestones and First Boyfriend

 Morning well after-noon by time I finished editing and taking the dog for a walk lol  -the card today I made for Grandaughters 15th birthday which was the 1st May and as she has her first boyfriend and is into runestones and manifestations and the Universe on full moons-don't even ask lol-I thought one of the papers from my new paper pad Bittersweet Heights was just perfect---the Runestones were courtesy of Google.The May strip and the stamps were cut from remnants of Graphic 45 papers .

UPDATE ON JOHN---2nd Detached retina op failed and are trying  the op again using oil this time instead of a gas bubble-then another op to remove the oil---fingers crossed I never have this happen!!!

The image is Spring Meadow Bouquet from  Power Poppy,coloured with promarkers and glossy accents on Bees wings.

P.paper from The Works,ribbon and brad from stash and so was the little heart found it whilst looking for a brad,the border die was a Tattered Lace craft mag freebie a few years ago.

W Fold Card

 Morning and welcome to my new follower JO.I have a W-Fold card today---I made the background by scoring the cardstock at 1" intervals then dragging distress inks-walnut stain and peeled paint down the length from the top-turn card upside down and repeat.

All stamps are from ALL&Create/For the Love of Stamps/Pink Frog and Chocolate Baroque and coloured with promarkers..

I stamped all images twice then coloured fussy cut and layered-silver embossed Garden Tools(only because I stuck the stamp on pad upside down and goe a black oblong instead of a sentiment???) Call myself a crafter lol.The garden tool heads were embossed on mirri card ---glossy accents on Bees wings/ladybirds and inside of tomato and added thread behind the sentiment.

In hindsight I wish I had backed inside images onto black card oh well next time!
