A is for ........................


Another Week in the Alpha challenge at The Craft Barn and lots of choice within the A section.  The first word that came to me was Arch so when I looked in my dictionary Archway was there so an easy choice, now I have several arch stamps so I was spoilt for choice,  anyway,  I have chosen to use an IndigoBlu stamp from the Hocus Poscus set which is one of my fav sets. 

Firstly I glued some pages together as usual and painted over them with Ranger paint dabber Lake Mist, stamped the Arch image onto light yellow card cut out and stuck to my page (left) and also straight onto the page (right page)  with black Stazon and highlighted the definition which reads
 " archway an arch or vaulted passage esp leading into a castle"
I added some birds accross the page Tim Holtz stamp and Black Soot Distress Ink.

A quick page for me this time as I'm finding it hard to craft at the moment Mum is not too well so a lot of time is spent with her and I also injured my thumb in my left hand and OMG is it sore...... now I know why the saying "sticks out like a sore thumb" is so true.... ouch!!!

Again a great big thank you to all of you that visited my last page and left amazing comments, I will visit as many as time will allow I love to see everyones work.

bye for now
