Fathers Day



Been Battling with blogger again this weekend but this time I hope I've sorted it out once and for all. COmputers are amazing things, information at the touch of a button, intant messages to friends on the other side of the world, reassurance from fellow bloggers when your confidence is on a low ebb but really, if it was a car we'd have traded it in years ago and got a full refund under the trade descriptions, not fit for purpose ruling. Why do we put up with the unreliablility of such expensive equipment?

Right - rant over I thought I'd very quickly show you a little something I made for my Dad, who is the most amazing man I know.  

Elusive images stamps, TH Distress and some gold embossing powder made him smile and spend ten minutes not watching the football, and that's an achievement I'll tell you.

Be back soon with a few more bits and bobs

Have a good week
x Michelle

Really love the card, sure you dad did. Glad I am not the only one blogger drives mad, have investigated a bit and bloggers software clashes with certain software, deep joy. You have won on this occassion which allows us to see your great creations. Bee

Wonderful card and bookmark. Your dad will surely treasure it.
Thanks for your lovely comment on my mini baby sculpt. I had so much fun making him and am looking forward to squeezing in some more sculpting time. (why is it everything else needs my attention when all I want to do is sculpt?)
Yes I shall be taking orders... you'll have to let me know what you have in mind and I'll see what I can do.
