I would like to take this opportunity to thank Libby for all the inspiration she has given me in using the Cuttlebug. I would never have bought one if she hadn't made me play with hers at Pecky's. Her blog is unreal and if you haven't visited it you must as she outlines so many ideas.She is an incredible woman and lives a busy life. Libby understands my plight of not enough hours in the day to do all you want as teaching is such a full on career for dedicated teachers.So Thank you Libby( Liddy as Jess used to call you), you are a wonderful friend.
I would also like to thank Libby for the help and guidance she gave me in improving my knowledge of blogs.I have come a long way since she helped me in so many areas.
Friends are precious.Some are silver some are gold.Thanks for being my friend.

I have used the gold negative but glued a piece of silver metallic cardstock behind. I inked the card in gold Versa Color and I have added some Kaiser Bling.

Who would have guessed this was the same technique described by Mel on Oil Pastels and Gesso. It looks a little different because I am an impatient medium worker. LOL. I bugged the yellow(same colour as the sentiment) cardstock, put a pinkish oil pastel over the raised parts and then painted the whole lot with White Gesso. Me, being me and impatient counted to 10 and thought well this Gesso should be dry by now and proceeded to wipe it off with some lunch wrap ( I did it 10 minutes before I went to school and wanted to see the effects straight away, so lunch wrap was at hand).Well, the Oil Pastels blended into the Gesso and the Gesso went pinkish. I do like the look but some was wiping off so i gave it a squirt of the Crystallina Kindy Glitz and wiped it all over and now no problem of anything wiping off.

We had a fabulous day today. Jessica was in her Dance concert. Brian, Amanda and I met Mel, Gavin and Chloe at Riverside Theatre at Paramatta and we had fantastic seats upstairs looking down on the stage.Jessica was in 3 dances, jazz, tap and ballet and then in the finale. We couldn't believe how far she has come since joining the new dance school. She was fantastic and I had a tear in my eye while watching her.
Afterwards we all went for dinner to The Mediterranean Restaurant and had a nice family dinner. Then home and preparing for school tomorrow.
Photos will follow but not for awhile as we were not allowed to take photos and will have to wait for the professional ones.
Another great day with my family.
a late Spring day.Why not make your stamped bauble into a gift tag for that special present.A little bit of Kindy Glitz will glitz it up to make it special. I used an eyelet in the hole which I set with A Fiskars Eyelet setter to add some deeper colour and to secure the tie which is an elasticised wrapping string.
Suggestion:- glue these onto chipboard for a Christmas Tree Decoration.
