I am off to town today as soon as I am rescued! I went to start the car a little while ago and hubby had left the key turned slightly on! (Yes, it WAS him, coz the first thing I did was move the seat forward to accommodate my little legs...bit deficient in that area, I am!) Hence, the battery is flat and I am waiting for a decent time of day for one of the men around here to come and rescue me and kick start the car with jumper leads. ( Hubby, of course , is nowhere to be found. He went fishing at 3.30am!) (I had been up really early to take myself and my puppy for a walk...I like to go near dawn to try and beat the heat!)


I found a scrap of alcohol ink background yesterday, sequested myself in my dungeon (aka art room) and quickly made this little number up. I wanted to try out my new Xmas stamp set from Stamp It....found here http://www.stampit.com.au/view/20070509144925/ which I recently ordered in for my little business. I also was keen to try out the Kaiser Clear Stamp Set... http://www.kaisercraft.net/au-nz/images/embellishments/clear-stamps/hi-res/CS721.jpg the first I have ever bought (as previously their wood mounted stamps were well below par in quality and I stepped away from them) TEST results: They seem to be on par with other clear stamps and the one I used stamps very clearly!
