Recharging the batteries...

Hi folks...the tag is in the bag as they say and I'll be sharing tomorrow once I recharge my dead as a dodo battery...not my battery I hasten to add but the one in the camera...SOMEONE and you don't have to look very far to know who the someone was...left the camera switched on...although on reflection this old crafter's batteries might also benefit from being plugged in for a couple of hours for a bit of a top-up but that's a whole other story. In the meantime...if you've got your copy of the May issue of Simply Homemade...
you may have spotted the Coffee Break Card I made using the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System...the Thick Material Design Set Tag and Intricate Shape Medium Design Set Leaf...my favourite Tim Holtz Wallflower Paper Stash and a few Idea-ology bits and pieces...a little reminder that we'll be celebrating Father's Day  soon...
although I've used the letterpress technique on felt hundreds of times since Mr Fuse took up residence in the cubbyhole...I'm still amazed at how crisp and perfect it comes out every time...no way would you ever achieve such a clean impression on this tricky material using the traditional stamping method...


But I'm donning my DIY hat today...grabbing a brush and starting on yet another marathon...there's a staircase waiting to be transformed so I'd better get to it.
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx
