Time flies!

I can't believe it is over a week since I posted! What a bad blogger I am! First I'd like to welcome my latest followers. Not sure when you found me but welcome aboard! I have had a wonderful weekend, as my lovely friend Lynne came to stay and we went to Doncaster together for the Stamp Magic show. I think I can safely say that we shopped till we dropped! We saw Lesley there too and it was so lovely to catch up with  good friends. I have to say I enjoyed the company as much as the shopping, if not more. I am looking forward to having a good play with some of my haul, but I haven't had the chance yet, as today I waved Lynne off and then took my dad to the hospital for a pre-op appointment for his other hip. He will have his second hip replacement in December. The weather was dreadful on the drive back from the hospital. I had the wipers going full blast and the water was across the road in lots of places. When I finally got home Meg made me a cup of tea and I stuffed my face with chocolate!
Anyway, what have I got to show you today? I needed a Thank you card the other day, so I got out my ink dusters and a plain white card. Using Memento inks in dandelion yellow, lilac posies, grape Jelly, Danube blue and Tuxedo black, I made the background,masking the moon. I then stamped the owl and tree ( Lavinia stamps).
The sentiment is a Chocolate Baroque stamp. Very quick and simple! Hope you have managed to stay warm and dry. Thanks for looking!
