J is for .................

...............Jump


Not much crafting going on here at the moment due to my attempt to have a major sort out in
the room of stash and it has taken me longer than I thought.......nearly finished now  hopefully but  I had to make time and clear a space for me to make my altered dictionary page in the on going Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn which I am hopelessly addicted to.

 After reading through the J words only one word jumped out at me so I ran with it all puns intended lol!



Very simply I stamped J in various colours of Addirondak inks and drew my stickmen jumping over them.  I will be catching up with all the other entries as soon as possible, thanks for looking

'till next time

  4. So simple yet so inspired Maggie. I can never think how to depict action words and so avoid them. Very brave to sort out the crafting stash - bet you found treasures you forgot you had.lol.

    1. Thank you for your comment. You wouldn't believe what I found lol, stash and projects going back to the beginning of my first attempts at stamping 20 years ago! Where did that go and wow has my style changed.

    2. Its been about twenty years for me too - the cost and the limited selection back then made for some interesting choices - but I still don't think I am ready to sort out my stash even with your success in mind.lol.

  6. Great word choice. Not doing much here at present either as done my back and hip in and can't sit down for long periods at a time so only working in fits and starts. Hopefully I can get my word done in time. Hugs Mrs A.
