Answers on a Postcard...

...did I mention that the Gingersnaps were having an Art Exchange and I was made UK Co-ordinator for the swap?? I did already? oh well, just thought I would remind you ROFL Here is postcard #3




It is the same LO as the others...using Distress Inks, Wendy Vecchi's Studio 490 stamps - they are the best aren't they? along with Grungeboard and Grungepaper and a few bits of Maya Road & Idea-ology thrown in for good measure.




I thought I had already blogged this postcard...and thank goodness I didn't already cos I have no new art to show you...*sob* ... cos...I spent most of yesterday in my bedroom....no, not what you think ;O))...and no, not ill either...I was...*pauses for dramatic effect* turning out my wardrobe and drawers....yikes, I have accumulated a whole load of rubbish over the years...and...I am sad to admit, the clothes on the top rail of my wardrobe - the one that I can't reach cos I am a shorty - have been there, untouched, since the day we moved into this house....six years ago ROFL So, they have all made their final journey to the local tip - clothing recycling, cardboard boxes that used to have shoes in, books, old make-up are just a few things that went that way...and then...I grappled with about 2,000 coat hangers...please please please can someone explain why they are 1) such a pain in the bum to pack up and 2) how come there are so many of them???? I went to recycle them...and was told *to my horror* that they have to go into general waste...how utterly ridiculous! I had toyed with the idea of melting them and making something really altered but time is ticking now and we have about 2 weeks to pack everything...and I ain't started on the Room of Stash yet!




Anyways..enough of my grumblings...am off to try and make something for the Sunday Stamper for tomorrow..be sure to check back in the morning cos I have some Candy to giveaway too :O)) TTFN Oh, and BTW, the girls who joined in this swap...I have just received Elina's postcards...three weeks later from Greece...why does it take so long for Europe post yet USA is super speedy??? *I need some chocolate, am turning into a grumpy old woman* Anyways...I will post out the swaps on Tuesday - so they will be with you soon x

Love the colours you have used on this one ...and the flower is impressive. Must get some of the TH pins...works so well on this.

I missed the photos of Alfie ...he is so handsome. Two of ours sit like that ...'legs a kimbo'??? aren't cats wonderful ...I even forgive Madison who smacks my face if I stay in bed too long ...claws out needless to say.lol

Helen said...

Well done on your sorting out! I dread to think how long it would take me...
Great postcard and can't wait to receive mine!!

Dan said...

Love the postcard Hels. Wendy Vecchi stamps are next on my wish list. Maybe at Ally Pally next weekend!

My sentiments exactly about the coathangers. I have been told by my local Asda and Marks and Sparks that they take them for recycling so I sorted a big bag of them about 6 months ago. Guess what? They're still sat in a corner gathering dust in a bag that keeps falling over, waiting to be taken to said retailers, Lol!

Andrea said...

Kaz said...

It's lovely Hels, the colours are fab.
I like the idea of melting the hangers, but hope it doesn't ruin the melt pot. x

Joanne said...

Every single postcard you have shown us is magic. I like the way you have bent the punched border up. We just had a wardrobe clearout too. Trouble is, I've no clothes left now!!! xx

DonnaMundinger said...

Oh I don't envy you the sorting out and packing away, Hels, but won't it all be worth it! Lovely card! The colors are FAB! xxD

flutterbycrafter said...

Another great piece of art. The colour combo is stunning. Good luck with all the sorting and packing, I don't envy you. Although I've never seen all your stash I should imagine it will take at least a week to pack it all up, lol. xx

Nicks said...

wow yummy!!

Nicks said...

meant to tell you that I have just uploaded my Sunday Stamper challenge from last week.... hours to spare LOL
Not sure I will be able to play next week ;-(

Lori said...

I don't envy you that move, girl. I plan on staying put for several more lifetimes unless a)I win the lottery or b)Dewbird kicks me out, lol. I can't even imagine packing up the stash. Your postcard is lovely as ever. Love the colors and the flowers!

Kay said...

Love the postcard, the colours are fab!
I don't know what it is with hangers either, and then, when you do need one you can't find any!!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

See I only miss a couple of days and come back to find out you're fleeing the country - what have you done! Hehe. Will have to backtrack now to find out.
Anyway gorgeous artwork hun. Love the colours too :)
(my SS entry is finally blogged)

Lynn Stevens said...

Hels, Your so sweet to do this, especially with your new move and all. Girl you must never sleep or have the energy of that Energizer bunny!
hope your move is going well!!!

Lisa Phillippi llelsik@aol.com said...

I am sending positive & encouraging thouths for your packing & moving-that is HARD WORK!
I love all your pretties!

Gez said...

Fabulous creation. The colours look scrummy.
Wouldn't you think coat hangers would be wanted! Hope you're not too sore after all that sorting.xx

Chris said...

OMG Hels this is deeeelishious I love the vibrant colours... really makes your postcard pop and I just love the flower!!
Feel for you with the hangers... they really are a nuisance...lol I put mine in a box when I moved and it took more time untangling them at the other end than sorting out my clothes...yak. If I were you I'd bundle them together with elastic bands.
Hope you've found your way out of the bedroom in time for the challenge...lol
hugs
Chris xx

Shar said...

Classic Hels! Always awesome!

whyducks said...

Lovely art work Hels. It is good for the soul to move, it makes you sort through things, but not good for the nerves or the back!
