Tired but still here!

Hello Ladies~

Hope I find you well and enjoying Bank Holiday Monday.
Unfortunately it is Raining here!! 
Well what did you expect....It's a Bank Holiday!!

My Blogging has been abit slow of late, but that is due to my friend Angie and I returning from a fabulous "Retreat" in Lancashire, where we got to Craft for two full days, it was bliss.

Got alot of catching up to do at home now tho', so can only blog when my jobs are done!!
Having a few hours off from housework after I have tackled my Mount Everest of Ironing, so the quicker I can get that done the quicker I can "Play".

Before bed last night I made a card for the Stampotique Challenge, so here it is.
They have asked for a "One Layer" card, not something I am very good at, but I am always up for a challenge!!

I have used a Stampotique Rubber Stamp called Daniel Torrente, and rain drops and border stamps by Claudine Hellmuth called "Doodles". The Sentiment is from a Vacation set I have had for ages, not sure of the make tho'. The little bird on the hat and sentiment is from a set by Craftwork Cards.
I have used Tim Holtz distress markers for all the colouring and did some doodling round the edges.

I think it's brilliant, great choice of stamps and sentiment and just the right amount of background!

What d'you mean "you are not very good" at one layer ? You rocked this challenge Deb, good combination of different stamps too.

Great card Debbie, I think I would fine it difficult to make a one layer card. I love the little bird perched on the hat and sentiment.
Glad you had a great time at the retreat, where did you hear about that one? Look forward to seeing your creations from the retreat so 'hurry up with the ironing!' :)
