I was beginning to get withdrawals … were you??? 😥 I am NOT going to bore you with the details of my busy life … just suffice it to say … last week was a DOOZY … and the weekend was just as bad … and then the new week started off with me chasing my tail for the whole day yesterday!!! 😯 But … finally I have found a few minutes to pop by and say hi! Before I show you my card for today … I just wanted to remind you … that my BLOG CANDY OFFER expires tomorrow night! Yes … the challenge finishes tomorrow … so you need to get your entries in NOW!!! (I know a couple more friends have said they will get a card submitted … so … I hope you find the time to get that in today!)

So … time for a card! This one is from our Stamp Club last week … we did a “refresher” class on brayering. Our first card was to highlight the “bouncing brayer” technique …
This technique is explained on SCS …. but their sample uses a kaleidoscope stamp pad (multi colour). Seeing I don’t have one of those … I just adapted by using 3 different colours for the background effect. Regal Rose, Melon Mambo & Tangerine Tango. I think it looked quite striking … particularly with the Black! My girls commented that they would never have thought to put pink & orange together … but were quite impressed with the final result! 😀 Details for this technique can be found on my card recipe at the end of the post!
I do have to fly (AGAIN!!!! 🙄 ) Skye’s music class is doing their HSC practice performances at school this afternoon. Skye is singing 2 songs + another of her own compositions. She has still not recovered fully from her flu from last week … but … I am sure my mum hat will go on 😉 and I will think she is singing like an angel! 😀 Hopefully by the time she has to perform again for her final HSC … she will be completely well. Hope you are having a happy day. Stampin’ Hugs xxx
