Full Steam Ahead Sir!!!

... I have always wanted to say that... so I just did lol So, I have some new stamps to play with... and I lurve them lots already... so much that they are probably going to become my new faves. They are the Steampunk set from THE Duke of Distress and they really are rather splendid... and I got them from The Artistic Stamper :O)) I was going to try and speak like a Victorian for this post but, by jingo, it is not as easy as one thought it would be... nah... I am better off speaking like me... even though you probably only understand every other word it is easier for me to waffle on... you know, in my own voice.



Speaking of which (pardon the pun) a few weeks ago I met a lady whom I have been talking to online, emails and the like and she was really surprised when I started talking... she said... and I quote... "ooooh, you talk like a Northerner!" So, I sat there a few minutes and started wondering what she had thought I sounded like... because, you can't get someone's accent from blogs and words on the t'internet... which has now got me to thinking... when I read the lovely comments left here by peeps that I haven't actually talked to in the real, I read them in my own voice... so, if you don't mind, can you please leave me a comment and tell me what accent your voice is? Then, when I read it, I can read it in that accent. **Wonders if Hels is actually losing the plot here?**



Anyways... my tag... as I said, the new Steampunk stamps... I lurve them... and I lurve Distress Stains.. so I put them together... the Wild Honey/Vintage Photo combo is getting a bit over used methinks... so I am banning myself from using them together for at least...erm... a day (ahem) but even so... they are a goodly combo. The ickle ruler is a strip from the Crowded Attic stack, stuck to mountboard, cut, inked, hammered, I added an eyelet without an eye... can't remember what they are called rofl and some Idea-ology... and glued some Ball Chain on. The sentiment is also a Duke of Distress stamp... one of my other faves lol



Cor blimey! Have you had weird weather today? This morning was bright and sunny and then it went as black as your hat and thundered and lightninged... and then sunny... and now we are in the middle of a storm! I am sure I am a witch you know... whenever we are going to have a bad storm or the weather is going to be freakish, I always get heaps more pain... like my old bones know that it is going to be bad. Right... best go, I have a broomstick to polish (rofl!!) Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Becky said...

Love your tag! I also love that set of the Duke's. And I have a plain Southern American (but not really heavy Southern ya'll) accent, but please feel free to continue to read me in your own voice, then I'll have a nifty English accent instead! :)

Gabrielle said...

LOVE the tag! Must confess to have always 'read' your blog in a northern accent - not sure why but glad I was right! You need to read this in a neutral accent, unless you're reading this when you're tired - then my Black Country roots come out loud and proud!

Jennie -The Artistic Stamper said...

Oh Faaabaulous tag! in my best poshest accent... you know that London one! lol
xx

Candy C said...

Very cool tag! Love all the stamped images you used and the background is absolutely perfect! All of the elements you used work together for a perfect tag! LOVE it! <3 Candy

Lori said...

This is awesome Hels, as is everything you do! Love that new stamp set, I might be tempted to buy it now...
p.s. love the cat and dog pill story, that is so funny, but so true.

Esther said...

Nice One Mate, she says in a typical Kiwi accent, lol

voodoo vixen said...

Amazingly, I have always read your blog with a Northern accent... I think its the vocabulary you use that gives it away... you can read mine with a Southern accent, with bits of an American twang on occasion... and smatterings of South African bits... in fact, probably quite a mishmash!!
Love those new stamps... now I will want them too!
