Another "just one stamp"

Hello my Blog friends, followers and anyone who just pops by to have a look at what I have on offer.
Welcome to my little corner of the wonderful world of Blogging.  Thank you for you visit I love having you here.  
Where has my week gone?? once again it has passed with such speed it has left me dizzy.  
Really nothing exciting happening here at the Ranch just busy, busy, busy.  Went over to Cupar, Fife (near St Andrews) yesterday, met Hazel, we went off to Poles Apart (McOyster Crafts).  They had a Demo day with a girl from Stix2, she was lovely but "flitted" far to quickly from one thing to the next.  I found it hard to keep up with all the things she was trying to show us.  However it was a great day for us, we met up, saw some interesting ideas and bought "stuff".  Had a look round Cupar and bought a few things.   Oh! guess what I did...................walking back to our cars after being away for nearly 3 hours, I popped my hand in my pocket for my car keys.....NO keys.  Mmmmm! Hazel!!! I think I might have left my keys in my car.  We hurried back and YES! there they were still there hanging in the ignition.  How lucky was I????   Hazel had parked quite close to me, with the wing mirrors not too far apart there would not have been much room for anyone to get between our cars, think that was my saving grace.  With great relief I went along to Hazels for lunch, a chat then back home.
Here is another card I have done using "just one stamp"    I am rather liking using my stamps again, although I really am not a stamper.


Base card approx 5 x 7 Papermill White Hammered Card
Piece of white Neenah card with a small mask for the moon.
I coloured it using TH Distress Ink
The stamp is an old Wood Mounted one from Memory Box. I stamped it two and a bit times
Piece of ribbon from my box
Stamps Away greeting Stamp  
(Sorry it is actually 2 stamps I have used) forgot about the greeting

That`s it for today
Off to finish the Kits for the Craft Class on Tuesday we are making an Origami Box.
Why oh! why did I agree to do this??? Hazel is coming across to help she is very good at doing these boxes and will be a big help.

Thank you so much for you for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time
Hugs

  2. I kept thinking all last night about how you would for one told John that you had given your car away if it had been stolen and two how you would have explained to the police??? That's what we get for chatting and passing bits across to put in the cars. Wendy is so right you/we will make sure it doesn't happen again - well maybe not knowing us two !!! Another great card using two stamps, and yes a good day yesterday at Adrian's. Hazel xx

  6. Love your colour Patricia, just like a canvas. Absolutely gorgeous card. Thank goodness your car was still there, an ooops! moment. Did lose mine in a huge park & ride once as it was dark when I returned and had to use the key alarm to find it again. You will have to adopt the "got my keys, got my phone, got my purse" routine. xx Flora

  11. Really lovely card Patricia. Love the colour and the stamps. I do not use my stamps nearly enough.
    Your story about the car reminded me of parking at a mall in America and was so busy getting my son into the stroller that I walked off and left the driver door wide open. Didn't realise until I returned hours later. Ever since I have been super careful.

  26. Hi Patricia
    Cor blimey Missy, you never mentioned the car when we chatted earlier. It was lucky it was Cupar. If it were Coventry, it would've gone!
    I, like Flora, do the keys, purse, phone check.
    Anyhoo, your card is amazing. A beautiful image you have created there.
    Hope you have fun on Tuesday.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  36. Very stunning, Miss Patricia. Would never know you're not a stamper! Love the way you silhouetted the flowers in front of the moon & dusky sky background. Looked like you had sponged the sky and it's beautiful. Your one stamp card is lovely. So glad you didn't have a mishap with the key situation. TFS & Hugs
