A Wonderful Weekend!

Last weekend it was Lynne's Birthday, which was the day before Stamp Magic, so she came to stay for a few days, so we could go to Doncaster together.
I can now share the card and a small gift I made for her.
 The card was made using ink dusters, Memento inks in dandelion, rosebud and elderberry and Inkylicious stamps, including the old beech tree, that was made from a photo of a tree near Lynne's house.
I made a stampboard pendant, using spring distress inks and grape jelly memento ink. Whilst the fern was still wet I applied clear embossing powder and set with a heat gun. As the challenge at Allsorts this week is embossing I am entering the pendant there.
We met up with some friends whilst we were at Stamp Magic. It was lovely to see you, Jane, Brenda and Lesley! Hope you enjoy playing with your new crafting goodies!
We bought quite a few new goodies too, and I am looking forward to sharing what I make over the next few weeks. It is half term, so I am enjoying a bit of playtime!
Thanks for looking!
