Sorry I've been absent...

I just thought I'd let everyone know, we lost a very dear Uncle last week...
There is only two left in my dad's family now.. terribly sad, but thats life isnt it..

I organised and travelled down with my mum and dad to say 
farewell and 'tight lines' to a good man.

These two are the youngest of 8 and the only ones left now
some crazy cousins that are having some light hearted laughs

CASEd card

Hi All,
sorry for not being around much but I've been so busy
with making wedding invitations and other such
wonderful gear for my daughters 
up and coming wedding... 
I've finally got around to getting some time
to put ink to paper and found the ol' mojo has
so to ease myself back into it all..
I've CASEd (copied and shared everything) from one
of the cards by Shari Carroll that was created in an online class

Here I've used Tim Holtz - Linen background using Dove Grey Stazon
 and the butterflies are part of the watercolour  set 
which I masked off with liquid masking fluid
the mottled background used peacock feathers and 
peeled paint Distress Inks on a Memory box stencil - texture
the sentiment is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Small Talk sticker book.

Its only a little different to the one Shari made, but I really liked how it turned out

You can grab your memory box stencil's from Bizzy Bec's online store here
and your Ranger Distress Ink pads from Bizzy Bec's online store here.

Have a great day 

ps... I may be a day late as this should have been posted yesterday xxx
psss... Dont forget you still have time to enter Bizzy Bec's July challenge here...
