Rain rain go away

I know we need rain to help keep our gardens green and more importantly fill our resovoiurs but in my world every day would be sunshine and it would only rain between the hours pf 11pm and 5 am.

Right on to the job in hand my project. I have decided that I need to get a little more organised so I've started sorting out my stamps and instead of them being crammed into drawers have spread them out a bit and in doing so I realised I have alot of images I forget I have and I tend to use the newer one, I decided I needed an ibnventory so I can use it as a reference and have a fuller chouice of images to use. I found some neat wee index files at Asda £1-50 each and extra cards at £1 a pack so I've been buying them over the past few weeks. I've nearly completed by inventoru index and have stamped every stamp I own well nearly just my stamp man ones to do and then print each of the digi images I have collected and file them so I will know exactly what I've got and for the most part who the image is produced by.

This wee file is for girly images so I decided to experiment and pretty it up. I say experiment as I wasn't sure it I heat embossed it that I wouldn't melt it. I found I had to keep the heat gun moving and kept stopping between flowers to let the cover cool as if not I could see it starting to bubble.

I embossed using pale blue brilliance ink and clear powder. The image a digi freebie from Papilio stamps I coloured with a mix of promarkers and sakura pens, I use to have a shiney bright green mac in my early 20's and I so loved it still do like green and most other bright colours too.I mounted on irridescent blue mirricard I got from a computer fair ages ago and the sentiment is from a kit I got from QVC also seems like forever ago.

I'm sure you'll see more of these as I have another 4 so far and hopefully it will mean you see a greater variety of images on my craft projects too. 

I would like to enter my index file into the following challenges:-

Fairy friday-nursery rhyme inspired, rain, rain go away

Hi Julye,
I love being the first to comment!
You have been a busy bee. Great feeling being organized. Your file looks sweet. This winter I will be wearing my red jacket a must have 2winters ago that I haven't worn yet!!! Bit like the unused stamps I think!
Although Jackets go great with Boots which are my fav part of winter ;) Comfy and make me look taller.
So for Easter I plan to spend time with family. Bit of bubbly. Some choccies all good. I think we will
have visitors staying from the country. A bit of a girly time.
Just a fun relaxing time,
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Hope your son has a lovely birthday. My baby boy turns 23 next weekend and all is well so thats great!
Have a happy Spring time,
Love your Daffodil Card,
<3 Sue
