I had wanted a stamp for back of my cards to save me writing details all the time on the back. Saw one on Jocelyn's blog ages ago now, and contacted the Aussie company. Have a luffly new stamp made here in Oz at Jemac stamps - a wonderful company, who are very helpful. They offer to make a stamp to your order ( eg.here and here). I actually sent them one of my watermarks and they were willing to to do it, even sent me a sample image. It would have cost a little more. However chose a simpler design, used watermark lettering, but one of their images ('cos gumnuts & gumleaves are so Aussie). May post overseas too, just ask, their post here was very cheap.
|Cuttlebug Clockworks folder + Alcohol inks.|
The focal point of this week's card was actually started ages ago now on the April WOYWW post (see back here) with a coke can die cut embossed and coloured with alcohol inks - some of you might remember. Had the potential card element sitting on my desk for ages wondering just how to feature is as did not want to cover it up. Then one day the perfect scenario dawned on me. Clockwork folder means clocks, clocks mean passing of time and who do I like to rib the most about getting older? a certain family male member, of course! so perfect opportunity was Monday, this week - his 60th no less!
Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
Happy WOYWW everyone - very sorry limited blogging as health allows - but thank you so very very much if you take the time to say hullo.
Your words really bless my heart, may God bless your day wherever you may be,
Shaz in Oz.x
