Gorgeous Grunge

Cor! Its so dark here today.  It's been raining all night.

Well its end of an era today. My youngest son leaves School today.  No more school children at home!
He has all his A Level exams in June and then the wait for results in August.  He hopes to go to Uni at the end of September. So fingers and toes crossed for him.

Thought I would share these cards I made using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.
I used Island Indigo, Tanerine Tango, Smoky Slate and Silver Encore.
Hey! we are getting the reinker for the Silver and Gold Encore pads in the New Catalogue coming in July.

The sentiments are all from Bring on a Cake stamp set.

This image is a single stamp set called Birthday Cake.

The angled tag topper punch was used for the centre's of some of the cards.

I used Basic Grey for the base card for this version with Smoky slate for the next layer.

Silver encore goes very nice with smoky slate, it takes a bit longer to dry though.

A couple of weeks ago when I was doing some gardening, I took this photo of our Apple Tree we brought as a gift for ourselves to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary last year.
It looks more fuller now.

Look we have Apples!

A couple of the leaves have some brown marks on them, so going to see what that could be.  The brick wall does get very hot in the sun.

Sid! decided to push the cushion out of his way yesterday.  I love it when you see his paws curled up. 
I would like to sit in the conservatory some time, but he gets there first!

Thanks for looking,
