Fireworks

Hi everyone, well after a lovely start to the day it's definitely turned a lot colder and bleaker but then we have arrived at November and bonfire night. I was listening to all the whooshes and bangs last night and suddenly remembered the challenge over at The Craft Barn which I'd intended to join in with. The theme is fireworks so out came my Clearly Besotted 'dandelion dreams' stamps as to my eyes they so resemble the 'ooh and aah' explosions you see for several nights running at this time of year. I got an assortment of Memento inks and stamped (fairly randomly) onto linen weave card and then stamped a Clearly Besotted sentiment. At this point I decided I wasn't too keen on the all white base so trimmed and added it to a base card cut from a sheet of Shades cardstock and to finish I glued on some sequins.





Thanks for popping by today and to those of you participating in the 'oohs and aahs' I hope the weather stays dry for you. We're off to my Dad's now....... he phoned to say he had a creaky floorboard which he decided to take up but can't get back down!

Brilliant idea and it certainly looks like the images that have been in our sky here tonight and certainly a lot of oohing and aahhing from two lovely boys.
